the table is set. the cakes (one buttermilk, one devil's food) are baked. both will be frosted with the same buttercream frosting... one will have chocolate sprinkles and one will have strawberries.) the ham is lounging in the fridge, Beloved is retrieving last minute necessaries.
the house is clean - zones one and five (thanks to libby) are cleaned for the week. the laundry's sorted and cued for tomorrow. Beloved and i made headway in the gardens. i still have weeding and mulching to do... and one last big garden to clean up... but the bulk of the gardens are on maintenance mode, at last... heavy constant maintenance mode, mind you... but maintenance mode.
the rest of the mother's day menu includes pineapple pudding, string bean casserole, scalloped potatoes, crescent rolls and baby peas. the only thing left to do is wrap the gifts, put my feet up, and enjoy the sunshine.
happy mother's day, gentle readers and fellow pixels. blessed be.
