Mother's Day 2019...





It was pretty quiet around here for Mother's Day. After I got home from mass, Sean came over to give me a card, take me to lunch & help me with the  travel trailer. While we were getting ready to leave the house Sean asked if I had heard from Marymine.
"Not yet, but I'm pretty sure she is busy and will call when she gets a chance."
Sean got a shit kicker grin on his face, and said he would wait for me to go upstairs and change out of my church clothes. Later as we were walking into the restaurant, he again asked if I had heard from her.  "I don't know, let me check my phone."  Sure enough there was a text from her saying 'she loved me 'more', was busy on a project with the kids, and would call later that night'. Sean started laughing, he had texted her before we left the house and told her he was now #1 and she was going to have to step up her game if she wanted to stay in the running... Kids!

We had a nice lunch and then went out to were I have the travel trailer stored,  removed the cover, installed the batteries, tested the generator, and checked the systems & the tires. After I give her a bath, coat her in 303, and flush the tanks, she should be ready to roll.




Come to find out Marymine and the grandkids were busy

 Marymine's pool April 2018 badly in need of resurfacing
resurfacing and painting her 70 year old swimming pool.
Marymine can do anything she sets her mind too, but this was no small task.  Good on the grandkids for helping with this huge project. 









One more coat and they can fill it, and be set for the summer. 

Oh, and according to my oldest grandson, Cody... this is what they are most likely going to look like after swimming in it... LOL!

    1. Tressa, It's a Marine Aerospace Protectant. A friend I was helping to detail his plane and kayaks started my using it. I've used it on boats, kayaks, planes, motorcycles, etc. Used it all over my old pickup and it kept it looking great.

  3. Glad you had a nice day and that pool looks awesome, they did a great job. You are a very independent woman and I admire you.

    1. Changes, They did, didn't they. Marymine had several pool outfits give her estimates, and it was super expensive, so she and the grands decided to do it themselves. They all work full time (except for the two that are in college) so it had to be done when they all could help.
      Thank you for the kind words.

  4. Sounds like a nice day. Mine was different--storytelling all day and no cell turned on. So I just got text messages and voicemails. I am sure the guys were relieved they didn't have to actually do anything this year, LOL! Next year may be the same, as I've been invited back to the festival, pending funding.

    1. Granny Sue, Wish I was closer, I'm sure you provided an interesting storytelling. Of course you have been invited back, I'll keep good thoughts that the funding comes through for next year. No cell turned on, sounds wise & wonderful.
