Monkey & Mom

Monkey & Mom
The newest denizens of Toad Woods under the bleeding heart on Mother's Day, 2007.

This was my last purchase at Brimfield, May, 2007. I probably would have bought them regardless of the day, but having them move to Toad Woods on Mother's Day seemed the right thing to mark the occasion. This year is different than last, but I'll still be relieved when a few more Mother's Days have come and gone.

Mother's Day joy to all who have reason to celebrate it, and Mother's Day comfort to all for whom that's what's needed more right now...especially those who have lost their mothers since the last time this holiday cycled round.

If you click on Monkey & Mom, you'll be able to see the other picture in my Brimfield Gallery. It shows that other monkey sitting on the bench in the mudroom.

What a lovely wagon bench!

Slept most of the morning, then had a short post-yesterdays-shopping-crusade shopping jaunt with Tammy, wherein we found her a pair of shorts and found me (unexpectedly) the cutest little striped velvety jackety thing.

Then I spent a quiet afternoon/evening with my mom and dad, up at my grandmother's house, packing up things, working on clearing the house out. Not exactly celebratory, but family, and good. And I made a point to take mum chocolates and a good card, and wrote a note in it she seemed to appreciate, so that was good too.

A warm welcome to your monkeys. Having them arrive today does seem appropriate.

Very nice addition to your garden. I lost Mom on May 5th, so Cinco de Mayo is never the best day for me. I tolerate it, will celebrate my Mom's memory, and deal with the loss (even though it is a good 26 years ago). It all came back when a former student (now in fifth grade) lost his mother this past week. She knew she didn't have long, but the doctor had just given her six more years. She was gone in less than six days. To me, this is just heartwrenching.
