Mother's Day

I hope everyone that is a Mom, has a Mom, wants to be a Mom, or is missing their Mom had a peaceful Mother’s Day.

I was not allowed to do the dishes and cooking was off-limits.  It was a day of sunshine, sleet, hail, rain and snow.  Crazy May weather.  It was also a day to spend time at the rink as any self-respecting hockey mama would.  Try-out schedules do not bend to Sunday brunches or Mother’s Day dinners.  I was loved on with poems, flowers, crafts, and chocolates.  Oh, and a massive bag of Chicago Mix from Costco… unbelievably addictive deliciousness.  Seriously - my jaw was sore from shoveling it back. 

We ended the day with more hockey – it is playoffs after all.

And the CN Tower will dress up in Maple Leaf Blue again tonight.


The past few weeks have been adjustment weeks.  Mornings are starting earlier and the days are getting longer.  The adult children have wrapped up their schooling for the year and have transitioned into work mode with their co-op positions and summer jobs.  Hockey has finished and we’re in the midst of try-outs for next season.  Soccer assessments have been done and the boys will be on the pitch soon.  For the first time in many years, there is no elementary or secondary school graduation looming which has me feeling relieved, yet strangely envious of all the prom-crazed Mommas I know. 

I’ve been tweeting and taking photos, so I haven’t been completely negligent in the memory keeping department, but it’s mid May and the last time I posted anything here it the calendar still said April. 

Stay tuned – I’ll be sharing our new found love for all things quinoa soon.  Who knew those pearly little grains could be so awesome?


  1. GO LEAFS GO! Oh great and powerful Hockey Gods, let them win Game 7, eh?

    1. Paula, that's so cool! Are you going to post photos? I still need to post pics of Jessica's grade 8 dance from last year, so I'm going to do a special post on her and catch up on her birthday, which is next month.

  3. Next year it will be my boy going to prom, but in South Africa it's called matric. Google spell check doesn't even know it's a word. Hahaha! My brother went to one of the coolest proms ever at the Heidelberg Castle in Germany. My dad was in the JAG Corps and stationed there. I had mine in Virginia, so tame. Thanks for linking on Amanda's Books and More!
