A Candle and A Pot

Last week was mother's day.  How was that for you?
It's not good for everyone is it?  
I got presents.  Sure, it was me who made the somewhat strong suggestion to stop by TJ Maxx...and then continued to pick them out myself.  But.  I got presents. How one gets presents is neither here nor there.

Happy perfect mother's day presents to me.

The fancy candle is from Siri and lovely pot from Sara.  I was given a 10 dollar limit ten dollars. But when husband Dion recognized the difficulty of choosing between these two perfect presents, permission was swiftly granted for both.  

The candle was 7 dollars, and the pot was 6.  I would not buy a candle for myself for 7 dollars.  It's going to be reserved for specialness.  Then, when it's all used up, the remaining glass will be become a useful, something shiny.

Its scent is tobacco and something else.  Who knew? So if husband Dion smoked a pipe, he would smell like this
(and maybe whatever the something else is; I just don't remember what it is).

For my other present, they committed to hanging out with me while I worked on projects.   I chose the little garden project Sara and I have started.

Typically husband Dion doesn't stay nearby
while a project is underway. (It's possible he runs the other way.)
He also doesn't work on Sundays.  So he did this.

He's playing poker.  I guess there isn't a problem gambling on Sundays.  If smoking a pipe, he would look like this.
(Why smoking a pipe would make him think so lovingly of me,
I don't know; it just seems right.)

Sara helped by doing this.
Then she ran away with my camera, and took this
fantastic photo, which I now consider another
happy mother's day present to me.
(the photo.  not the mushrooms.  But you are also nice mushrooms.)

Siri took a nap inside.
(not documented)
Kitty did this.
 Then this.

I enjoyed this.
But what really made my day beautiful was...

it ended like this.

How are you making
your today world beautiful?
