Last Thursday our school secretary brought a box into my room with a surprise in it. Knowing I hadn't ordered anything I couldn't believe it was for me!
Inside the box was a vase and bouquet of 100 flowers for Mother's Day from Sarah and Alex!! I didn't actually count them, but Sarah told me there were supposed to be that many!
For pictures it is sitting on a kitchen chair with no room to spare.

We were all so tired by Sunday afternoon we didn't want to do anything! My plan is to go to bed soon and catch up on some rest. This hot (87 degrees today) and windy weather makes me weary--it dries out everything that I've watered.

Wishing you a calm and peaceful week. ♥♫

Oh Marilyn, what beautiful flowers..what a wonderful surprise!
Thank you so much for you sweet comment on my blog.... I'm not sure I've ever been an inspiration to anyone before. (at least not that anyone has told thank you!) I had a friend on facebook the other day ask me when I had any down time...I told him my down time was when I was asleep! lol He thought that was funny. :) hee hee hee I just have so many projects that I want to get done, that I just zoom zoom zoom all the time! I love pretty things and I like it when I can take an ugly room or item and turn it into something lovely. :)
I love ya dearly for leaving me that comment..YOU made MY day! (and that's always in a good way!)
