Memorial Day...  
I got quite a workout on Memorial day!
Temperatures were in the upper 90s and the humidity was 100 percent!
So...it all started at Home Depot, early in the morning...I took mom there to pick out flowers that she liked, while I picked up some new scalloped brick borders for the flowerbeds, a few bags of soil and a few bags of marble chips (for around the trees and bushes). I love my mom like crazy, but taking her shopping can be slow torture! LOL!! I had gathered up my things in no time and gone to find her...it took her an hour to decide on two...yes TWO flowers...we ended up buying 12 flowers (LOL...once I was there, I hurried things along as much as possible...so it didn't take us 6 hours!). Next, we stopped to eat and then hurry home to start the real work...

So...during the hottest part of the day, we were out in the yard working! I mowed...mom trimmed...I put down soil...mom swept...I put down the brick borders and marble chips...mom planted the flowers. We were out there all day...but I DID get a pretty good tan out of it! :)

One good thing...we met some new neighbors (look about 23-25)...they stopped and chatted for a bit...mom talked to the girl and I exchanged a few words with her hubby (a shirtless cross between Justin Timberlake and Eminem).

One thing I like about working in the yard...how GREAT the shower feels afterwards!!

Ehhh... summer is here, isn't it, Mr. Mark? I've been to Baltimore and it's much like Illinois in the heat-and-humidity department. I'm not built for this, I tell you! I'm a cool, foggy coastal sort og guy... (so begins the Summer Grumble™.)

You and your mom sound like a good team - when retail isn't involved. ^_~ I bet your yard looks great.

Welcome back, sweetheart! I hope you are well! *hugsmooch*
Yeah...the yard is looking good...but I'm not really into yardwork! LOL...I do it for mom! I HATE the Summer... heat/humidity and I do NOT get along! I am praying for October to be here!! Should we take our boys on a Summer trip to Nova Scotia...Lappland, maybe?!

The flowers look great, Deb! Mom has a good eye for the garden and grouping flowers and plants, etc!

I'll take TWO please.

I usually don't go shopping with my Mom and Dad. When I do, I stay back a few yards to give them room to fight and fuss.

My mom's arguing partner is my younger sis! LOL!!

When I used to take Mom whopping we designated a time and place to meet and then went our seperate ways. I did not have patience enough to shop with her.

A time honored tradition...LOL! When in the mall, I definately do the same, Tim! At Home Depot, I had already picked up what i needed...and Mom had her two single flowers! :)

It's so freaking cold here nobody would even think of being shirtless or even sleeveless... and next time mom should take pics of you working a sweat.../daydreams

Well...you're definately NOT in Texas if you're cold!! LOL! How long are you home for?!
Hahahaha...if I asked mom to take a pic of me working shirtless, she'd say, "No...you wait until you shower and comb your hair and put on something nice!" *grin*

LOL! My mom is the same way with shopping!! But I enjoy it anyway, since I so seldom see her those days.

You make me want to garden!! I need a tan! ;) I bet you look hot. LOL
Mark: ai-loveboywondermark on May 31st, 2006 10:30 pm (UTC)
My mom lives with me, Danny, but I still enjoy her company (LOL...most of the time!).

I felt hot and miserable...as for how I looked, I like your imagination! *smile*

why do women have to take so long to shop? 0_o everytime i go with some female it always takes forever. guys usually find what they need and go. or look it all over real fast and get what they need. lol
Mark: BILL and TED strangethingscircleKboywondermark on June 1st, 2006 01:17 pm (UTC)
My sisters don't take too long...and I think there are some men who do the same thing!

Excuse me, I have to lock myself in the bathroom for a few minutes.

It's so nice you help your Mom out all the time. You are a true superhero. :-)
