Happy Birthday to you!
Today is my Mom's birthday. She was actually born on Labor Day that year (for real), with which we tease her sometimes...
A woman who seems to have knowledge of things as diverse as how to make several different sewing patterns come together to make ONE blouse. How to make a musty book not stink. Several recipes to use up zucchini, including one bread recipe that I wait impatiently for the 'zukes to come up to make. (Ironically, I will have to PURCHASE zukes this year, the slugs ate them all... snif...) She taught me to cook, to keep a checkbook, tried to teach me to sew (hey, I sew on a mean button...), has a high tolerance for fun, a low tolerance for... male cattle excrement, and is a generally all around cool person.
Happy birthday, Mama... Your kid loves you.
(Haven't been writing my blog lately, sorry. We fixed the modem problem, now the company is having problems with PROVIDING the internet at any speed, we are presently SLOWER than what we used to have as dial up, making up, or down loading anything almost impossible... So, it is supposed to be looked at soon. Ahem. Right. Keep watching for them flying pigs... )
