    Alex has asked me several times if I have any desires for Mother’s Day.

    mom and child with grinch at dr seuss memorialLike so many moms, I think it would be great to have a day with all the benefits of motherhood (children’s hugs, “You’re the greatest”, etc.) and none of the work. Let me complete a project, phone call, night’s rest, or a simple thought without interruption. Let the world be at peace. Let it be quiet most of the time. Let it stop raining so that I might plant my garden.

    Alas, I know that my husband and child can’t make the impossible a reality.

    They could lavish me with gifts. I would love:
    a chicken weather vane
    garden statuary – a dog or gargoyle would be fun
    framing for my Joachim Knill polaroid
    a new lens for my camera
    something cute to wear

    Or, they could address the practical needs:
    replace the garage door opener
    hang the bat house that has resided in the garage for three years
    build the patio
    add a rain barrel to the garage

    What are you making, procuring, or requesting for a Mother’s Day gift?

    I live to eat and eat to live, planning every meal to include as much local and seasonal abundance as possible. I often wear purple and never refuse a drink.

      Is that Grinch statue at COSI? My mom loves Dr. Seuss stuff!

      I’m taking my mom to your class this Sunday and possibly to Pistacia Vera so I can use my Groupon. I figure learning something new will be better than buying her something.

        This picture was taken at the Dr. Seuss Memorial Garden in Springfield Massachusetts. It’s an amazing display of larger than life size sculptures. I can’t wait to meet your mom!
