We had another great weekend. Saturday I spent the day with my Mom for Mothers Day. I had talked with my sister earlier and heard that there were a few people going to my Mom's on Sunday so I chose to have her to myself on Saturday. We went to Michael's and she picked out a couple of paint by number which she likes to do, then we went to the battery store to get a new battery for her watch, next was Bordines for a new plant for her deck, swung by the house so she could see the new porch then out to lunch. We rounded out the afternoon by playing a game of Scrabble - which she won. MM was home working on stuff for the RV. He's basically making a skirt that will protect our tow car. He's just about done with it. Then we went to Lowes and got some mulch. We went to Applebee's Saturday night too. I love their nachos.

Sunday I got up early to beat the rain and get the mulch down. I got the six bags that we bought spread and was just grabbing the bags for the trash when I felt the first sprinkle. God is good! We relaxed (or should I say I relaxed he was out in the barn). MM went back to Lowes with our Son to get more mulch and some other stuff that he needed. Our Son and Daughter-In-Law treated us to dinner for Mother's Day at Bravos. That was so good! And of course we stopped for dessert on the way home. It was a great weekend.

Before work on Monday I got up and spread the final six bags of mulch around the yard. I think I'll miss that this summer. I love working in the yard in the early morning hours. Hope they don't get mad at me at the campgrounds for weeding the flowerbeds around camp. I know other summers I've found myself doing that lol. Guess I just find it relaxing.

This is our final full week at work and we're counting down now. So many little details to take care of but I'm really not stressing. Guess if we forget something we'll just deal with it. Just one more week before we leave!!
