Mother's Day Goodies

I hope everyone had a happy Mother's Day! Mine was great! We started the day by going to church...well,we actually start every day by tending to critters,lol!  I did not get to have The Boy sit with me because he works up stairs on the audio visual part of the church service. Then we went out to eat some Mexican food and then to Home Depot where I was instructed to buy what ever plants I wanted with the condition they had to be things that lived along time so when I looked at it years later I would remember my boys got it for me! I picked out a red Crepe Myrtle....


I have wanted one of these red ones for a long time and they have been hard to find so it was like it was meant to be for my special day!


While I was plant shopping the boys were off getting me a porch swing!




When we moved here there was a dilapidated porch swing hanging under a big oak.I loved that swing but it fell apart...so now I have a new one! I will love being able to sit here in the shade and just watch...the birds,the woods.... the grass grow!


I told Hubby he didn't have to do so much for me and he said ,"Well,they don't have a wives day so  I will have to use Mother's Day instead." That's my Hubby,I love him! Not just when he is buying me stuff either! I love him all the time!

Ole Bessie,you all remember her right? She is our "new" 1970 International Harvester tractor.Well she got her first accessory ! A bush hog!



The boys were fighting over who would get to shred the pasture first! I just love that my kid is such a country boy! Oh, she also got a new muffler,the guy we got her from had put a glass pack on her! You want to go deaf? Just ride around on a tractor with a glass pack  sticking out the top!

I have my giveaway planned! That will be tomorrows post!

Nice Mothers Day! Pretty Crepe Myrtle, may it grow for many, many years! Love the porch swing! I want one!!!

Glass pack muffler? Whose idea was that to start with? Ouch! Wow, a bush hog, so nice, we only have 1 1/3 A. but the grass grows so fast, no boy around this summer, he leaves for Utah on May 31st. If DH gets a job.... I may have to learn to drive that thing without mowing off the "good stuff"! LOL!

What a great day!
I was out there weeding at 6am on Mother's day, but to me there is nothing better than spending any day outside, doing farm chores.

Glass pack on a tractor. Hmmm. Those boys are something when it comes to their toys. [Gotta be sure not to accidentally share this post with hubby.........]

Wonderful Mother's Day! Crepe Myrtle is so beautiful. When they receive adequate water and fertilizer the leaves are dark green and the blossoms are awesome. Country Red...ahhh!

A swing, under a tree, to gaze at the country right where you live is a wonderful gift.

I love Mexican food.

Great husband and great son!

Happy, happy day!
