My Early Mother's Day Lunch

My daughter came and took me to lunch yesterday for Mother's Day. 

We went to Red Lobster. I hadn't been there in ages. I'd forgotten how scrumptious those biscuits were!

Then she had errands to run. And I had pupsters wanting their lunch. So she brought me home and went on with her day.

Andrew was home with his dad after soccer practice.

Abi's newest thing is to go in the bedroom in the afternoon, and either be under the bed or at the foot of the bed, and moan and cry. 

I think she wants me to go back there. That, or she's mad because I'm still on my laptop and she wants attention.

Charlie is such a normal dog. He just gets in his red bed on the couch and sleeps with his tongue hanging out of his mouth.

Abi gets her teeth cleaned next week. They get their teeth cleaned more often than I do! 

But I try to take good care of my pupsters. And with her gums infected, it was Dr. Wendy's recommendation.

No rain yesterday. It was nice and sunny outside. I worked out on the patio trimming and doing maintenance to my container plants. 

I enjoy that quiet time. It is when I get a lot of thinking done. The pupsters usually sit in the chairs and watch me. 

I trim plants and dead-head flowers in peace and quiet, except for the sound of the birds in the trees overhead.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day! 



  1. Happy Mother's Day, Brenda. Glad you had a nice lunch with your daughter. Your plants are beautiful, my seeds didn't work out but I do have a little fountain like the one you had last year. Love to sit there and listen to the sweet sound, so peaceful.

  2. Glad you had a good Mother's Day visit.
    My cat Dexter had his teeth cleaned a few months ago, wow, expensive but well worth it. He had sweet breath for a day or two!! I am looking forward to moving into my smaller house with just a patio instead of a large garden. I am already planning on how it will look with planters etc.
    Tomorrow our present house goes up for sale, not looking forward to having to tidy and clean every day but I think it will soon be over.
    Enjoy the rest of your day Brenda.

  3. Brenda, I'm glad you had an early lunch with your daughter! Wishing you and the pupsters and Happy Sunday. hugs!

  4. Happy Mother's Day Brenda! I am sure you enjoyed having lunch with your daughter yesterday at Red Lobster. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the good weather.

  5. Happy Mother's Day, Brenda! Did you know that Red Lobster makes boxes of of mix for their biscuits? Costco sells them here ~ and they are as good as in the restaurant! All you add is water and cheddar.

  6. Wishing you a very Happy Mother's Day! I'm glad you were treated to lunch. Your flowers and plants are always so beautiful! The last year or so my Forrester would almost beg to go to bed. I think it was comfortable for him vs his beds, although he slept in each of those at times. I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time left with him so I would just put him on the bed and check on him now and again. If I was in another room when he woke up, he let me know he wanted down. :) I can't begin to tell you how much I miss him!

    Enjoy your Sunday ~

  7. Happy Mother's Day Brenda, enjoy the day with the pupsters.

  10. I am so glad your daughter took you out to lunch. I haven't been to Red Lobster in ages!!! Hope you have a great night, Brenda, with your one 'normal' dog and your 'whiner' like real kids, aren't they? lol xo Diana

  11. Happy Mother's Day a little late. So glad you were treated to lunch. Had to take my Ziggy to a different groomer as mine was out of town and I'm not happy with his cut. He resembles an alien!

  12. So lovely that your daughter took you out for Mother's Day lunch. Your flower pictures are lovely as always, Brenda. Happy new week.
