I dropped my mom off at the SFO airport this morning. I had such a wonderful week and I was really sad to see her go. We made the most of our time together though! And she left me with presents. My mom is a quilter, so my house is full of her beautiful quilts. She brought me two small ones this time. She put one on the table…
And I laid the other one on the couch. It matches perfectly.
She also left me these awesome shoes. They weren’t supposed to be for me, but when I asked if I could borrow them she said they looked better on me and I could keep them. She hadn’t even worn them yet. Thanks, Mom! I’ve been wearing them every day. With some green oats
Yesterday we had our last day of double green oat bran. This time the two bowls were exactly the same – oat bran, peanut butter, salt&vanilla, and tons of spinach. She asked for the same amount of green as me (but didn’t quite finish her bowl – these guys are filling). My mom’s favorite bowl was the bowl from her first day here (sweet) – oat bran, peanut butter, banana, salt & vanilla, and honey drizzled on top with not too much spinach – just enough to be green.
I was feeling glum when I got back from the airport, but Miss Cranky (Bella) sent me a present that I found in my mailbox. It’s a package of chocolate bars from Trader Joe’s. The perfect pick me up. Thanks, Bella!
I’m off to do some morning yoga and make up a nice comforting bowl of spinach-y oat bran. Sounds like a good start to me. Happy Tuesday!
Today’s question is: what’s the sweetest present you’ve ever gotten? I love small thoughtful gifts, like flower at the end of a hard day, or a hand-crafted quilt. Meaningful presents are definitely the best for me.
P.S. Sorry for the lack of commenting recently. I’ve been reading, but trying to spend time with Mom… I’ll be back to normal now though.
