Here's my recap of the quickest weekend ever:
Plant Sale: I participated on one of the local park's committee to help put together their first plant sale. The proceeds help to compensate the budget cuts made by the town and the sale was a success. We raised $4,000!
I have to admit, I was shocked at how quickly we sold out. On Friday, I was helping to re-pot donations made by the community and couldn't believe how many plants we received.
Saturday, while unloading plants in the pouring rain at 7:30 a.m. we were cursing the weather gods! The sale was from 10:00 to 3:00 and we sold out by 11:30 a.m.. It was awesome.
I admit, I was fearful to volunteer again. In the past, I was the fundraising chairperson for a girls' club (where everyone seemed to have an agenda for being on the board, but to help the cause) and I was also on the board of a community acting group (the movie Waiting for Guffman by Christopher Guest was not an understatement for this bunch). I was pleasantly surprised by this group. We all worked well together and one woman even commented on that fact.
After playing in the dirt, loading and unloading large and small plants off flatbeds, I was beat. I laid low at night and got sucked into a mindless video game, but not before watching The Ghost Whisperer which I dvr'd.
I've never seen this show and was curious about all the hype. Ummm...not my cup of tea. Next.
Mother's Day : It was the first nice day in a long time, we hoped to work outside, but by the time we cleaned, did laundry and went to visit my mom, the day was shot.
My mom is in a nursing home with Alzheimer's where she is happy and well taken care of. I must admit conversation with her is always interesting.
Yesterday, we learned she lived in the White House, I had another brother who was a pilot and the Man on the Moon brings her the meals. He apparently brings 3 other plates, but she forgets there are 3 other people eating with her. My hubby wanted to ask her if the Man on the Moon brought her cheese to eat, but knew better.
By the time we got home, I started dinner and wondered what happened to the day.
