As for my own mother, we went out yesterday in celebration of mother's day. There is a little festival I go to every year the day before mother's day. They have good music and tons of flowers and crafts. My mom and *B* and I went together this year. We picked up all sorts of interesting things. I bought a geranium plant from the boy scouts and a painted gourd bird nest for the chickadees in my yard. I also bought some mandarin coconut homemade soap. I can't wait until I learn to make soap myself. Geraniums remind me of my grandmother, and I decided it would be nice to have them around. My mom bought an ostrich fern and cake-in-a-jar. I will learn how to make this. And, of course, I'll post it for all to see :o) It was a chocolate-irish cream cake in a mason jar - fully cooked. Oh was it delicious. We ate it with our fingers in the middle of the street. We also had fresh homemade funnel cake, pressed lemonade, and I had a crab cake.
Today, my mom and I are going to see my grandparents. I'm taking my genealogy software to fill in some of the gaps I've been missing on my grandfather's and grandmother's father's side of the tree. I'll post more on the genealogy project a little bit later.
