Good Morning, Glories!
Today has already been a BIG day, and it’s not even 10 a.m.
I took an early shower, attempted to style my too long and gray rooted hair, remembered how to apply makeup, put on perfume, jewelry and a cute dress.
I then reviewed my mask options to decide which one would coordinate best with my dress; the ubiquitous white paper mask or the custom-made fabric mask adorned with cows jumping over the moon? I decided to go with the ever-chic cow mask. (Which begs the question, are we going to have an assortment of masks to coordinate with our outfits like we do scarves and purses?)
And then, I ventured out.
So, what prompted this early morning attempt at ‘gussyeying’ up?
My 8 a.m. pre-Colonoscopy prep appointment was the reason for all the excitement this morning. TMI? Just keeping it real here.
But, I’m home now and am keeping my dress, jewelry, and makeup on for the remainder of the day…just because.
So many of you sent me kind notes after I shared that I was feeling blue last Monday as it was my dad’s birthday. I just wanted to update you that, according to the caregivers in the Memory Care Unit, my dad LOVED the balloons I took over and held on to them all day. My heart soared with that report.

I am making some progress on my Quarantine To-Do list!
If you want to tiptoe into canning or are just looking for a simple, but delicious plum jam, then you check out this recipe for Easy Plum Jam. I have also included some suggested ‘flavorings’ if you want to put your own spin on your jam.
Perhaps one of the most unique Mother’s Day gifts I ever received was a compost tea brewer! Terry built it for me and shared his plans and instructions if you are so inclined.
Mom had requested this knit purse as a Mother’s Day gift.
TIP: While I don’t really like beer…at all…I do use it in recipes from time to time. I have a chili recipe that just isn’t the same without a little beer and we always cook our shrimp in beer. If I just need a little bit of can for something I’m cooking, I put the rest in a jar in my freezer! Sure, it gets flat…but it still imparts the flavor I’m looking for.
Well my friends, enjoy the rest of your day! I guess I may have to change out of my dress if I’m going to work on that chest today.
See you next week…
