Six Word Saturday
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. Bonsai Tree Seeds
This is another Six Word Saturday that is really a Mother’s Day version. Except these two entries arrived a bit before Mother’s Day. My daughter sent these two gifts to me this week as Mother’s Day gifts. They were very welcome surprises.
The Bonsai Tree Seeds were a complete surprise. A package arrived from Red Envelope, a company I like very much. There was no card and I thought perhaps she had sent it. I plan to plant the seeds today and see if I can have a go at getting them to grow and then finding the strongest one and teasing it into a strong tree.
Then on Thursday, the UPS truck pulled up and the dogs barked (my first alert system). I raced out to get my package and found a small package from Shari’s Berries. “Oh, goodie!” I thought. And sure enough. There were six luscious chocolate-covered strawberries in a box with a note from my daughter and her husband and my granddaughters.
Mind you, my daughter is in Mexico on Isla de Mujeres while these lovely gifts are being delivered so she had to have arranged all this before she went on vacation. I know she was busy at her office before vacation because they were moving the office while she was on vacation and she is always busy at home before she goes on vacation, so I don’t know when she had time to think about gifts for me. But she did, and I’m thrilled that she did. Thank you, Sabrina!
But Mother’s Day isn’t even here yet and it isn’t over. Sabrina is taking me to lunch tomorrow at noon. That will be really nice. After the two gifts, I wasn’t expecting it. But she texted last night when she returned from her vacation and asked if I’d like to go to lunch on Sunday. Of course I said yes. So we’re going to the Texas Land and Cattle Company early tomorrow for lunch because I like steak and don’t get it often. It will be nice to go with the family, all the ones I love. It will make Mother’s Day very special.
So I have had a lovely Mother’s Day so far. And it isn’t quite Mother’s Day yet. And I’ve only eaten two of the strawberries so far. I’m rationing them. I’ll plant the seeds today. And have a lovely lunch tomorrow. I’m one lucky mom.
