Don't think I've Forgotten

Because I haven't.

It's Mother's Day.  A day to enjoy the flowers and maybe plant a few in the garden; which I totally would if the temperature wasn't at the freezing mark.  Two days ago I had on shorts and a tank top and felt I was roasting.  Today I'm thankful that though I started to do it, I have not yet put all the wool away.

Happy Mother's Day, friends.

It's also International Nurse's Day which marks the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth.  Happy birthday, Florence, and Happy Nurse's Day to my fellow nurses.  This year for nurse's day, I got a raise and a begonia from my employer.  You could have knocked me over with a feather!  I'd have been satisfied with the plant alone, but don't tell my boss.  I'm keeping the raise.

Lastly, it's hockey playoff time!  I know I haven't mentioned it before today, but I've been watching every Wings game even though I admit to falling asleep before some of them ended even regulation play.  Never mind the games that ended in OT.  These west coast games are brutal on my sleep schedule and I've had to satisfy myself by checking the score first thing in the morning.  Tonight's game 7 against the Quacks starts at 10PM.  While I plan on watching, it'll have to wait until after the movie.  Sara is taking me to see Jurassic Park on an IMAX screen.  I'm fully expecting to be to afraid to sleep after that, so I should be good to watch the game.

Go Wings!

Happy Mother's day! I'm not a big hockey fan but when you live in Vancouver you can't help but know every twist and turn in the fate of the Canucks. I can only say that except for the economic ramifications, I am not unhappy to have it all over here.

Wool is always appropriate, isn't it?

Happy Mother's Day, Rudee. It's nice to be appreciated at work. Good news about the raise.

Sorry you are have a cold snap. I planted some flowers in my yard and enjoyed the day so far.

Happy Mother's Day and Happy Nurse's Day!

Not a Hockey fan, but I do surely miss watching the Wings with my Young Man while I did his care, (actually, I miss HIM more). I believe he's now able to move all his limbs and play hockey in heaven. Hockey must be important in heaven, musn't it?
