Saturday was spent helping my sister in her garden, yes I actually did some gardening! And got to spend time with my nephews, which is super important to me. And thanks to the swap part of the night before, I was able to have a few dollars in my wallet and I got to treat my nephews to a treat from the ice cream truck that came through the neighborhood. Doesn't sound like a big deal to most I'm sure, but to me, it was a very big deal to be able to get those wonderful little guys a treat from Auntie. Then my kids joined us and we had dinner with family and played some card game called "Spoons", new game to us but I see it being a dangerous game if it was all adults and alcohol was involved lol It was a very good day with some of my favorite people.

Nothing too exciting, but a good weekend. I didn't create anything this weekend, except a couple little projects on Friday night, so I best get back to that this week. Have two cards going out for a monthly swap I signed up for, want to get a card made for my son's bff, pretty much my other son and get that in the mail too.
I am glad that we kept busy on Sunday since it was the 13th and it was 8 months ago on August 13 that we lost our Mom, very suddenly and unexpectedly. I still miss her everyday, and I'll probably mention her alot on my blog, she was such a huge part of my life and my kids too. I can't believe we are coming up on another holiday and she won't be here with us, I know that it's real, I was with her at the end, but it still seems so surreal that my Mom is gone. I see all the ads for Mother's Day stuff and things like that, and I pinned a few things thinking ohh Mom would love that for Mother's Day.....then it sinks in, she's not here. This Mother's Day, I won't have a Mom. Do the rest of the the days get easier to handle? Or is every Mother's Day going to be this hard?

Have a great night everyone!
