Random Things from the Past Week or So


Patrick decided that the herbs needed a little trimming. They're growing like crazy!
This is from last week. I told you it was random. I made some muffins and did some stitching.



Below was a "ode to Dennis Hopper" margarita with fresh strawberries from the market.
And today! My son, Mike, kept telling me that he was still working on my Mother's Day present. Well, I had no idea that he was giving me my dream gift!!! He rebuilt an old bike he and his friend had and were planning to fix up for money. Instead, he decided to fix it up and give it to me. It has an awesome pearlescent paint job, gorgeous shiny fenders and Mike's favorite, a classic horn. I was sitting at the computer and I heard the horn and jumped. There he was standing in the door with a bike. My older son just fixed up a bike and I thought this was it. So I was like, "oh cool! Oh, is that Nick's?" He said, "It's yours!" LOL I was like a little kid at Christmas, jumping up and down and clapping my hands. "It's mine?!?!" I can't tell you how much I've been wanting a bike and to have one that he made (and is so gorgeous!) is just so amazing. I'm a happy mommy.
Thanks Michael! I love you.
Isn't he cute? hehe (haha after I posted, I blew up the pic of him to look at it and realized I caught him blowing the horn. Told you it was his favorite part.)

Ah, those are the "paydays" for a parent. Paydays of the heart. That's what we call them, anyway, because we always joke about being underpaid as parents. Then one of the kids will do something unutterably sweet, and we just look at each other: "Payday!"

Made me smile today. Thanks.

Yes, he is cute, and thoughtful too!!
Thanks for coming over to my blog and following. I love your stitchroll, and I want to learn more about growing herbs. After moving to this new area of Texas recently, I've found that they grow well in this awful black clay we have here! So maybe if I find out a little about them it would be even better.
