Mother’s Day usually is the start of our gardening season. I get myself a plant like rose or hibiscus instead of flowers. This year I decided not to buy anything and told my husband it is better to maintain what we have than to buy new plants. We did get some seeds and I hope to start planting them soon.
We had good rain today and my rain gauge showed nearly an inch. My younger one was interested in meteorology so I got a rain gauge when he was first grader. The kids grow and loose interest, but as an adult I got addicted to this measuring gauge. Even if one breaks, I go and get another one.
We have also been cleaning our basement so new carpet can be laid. Things aligned and we recycled most of our things with wires in our community electronic recycling day today. We had two microwaves, a toaster, many number of fans, cd players and much more. They didn’t accept our old DVDs or CDs. My friend sent me a website. We need to ship it to them. We are not that energetic family. When the time comes we would recycle. (We all have spent so much of money on these DVDs and CDs and never in my wildest imagination I thought we may be recycling them in future).
We celebrated Mother’s Day today (a day early). My husband got me dinner and my younger one got me a gift (Okay, I had to grab the debit card from him since he was so shy to use it). Even my special one painted a frame with the help of his aide. So a full cycle completed. I am eagerly waiting for breakfast tomorrow morning. At this point I am fine even if it is a bowl of cereal or oatmeal.
Tomorrow is my younger one’s last day of Bala Vihar class (Sunday school) at our Temple. We moved here when he was a first grader and he has been attending since then. We thought he might drop out during High School years and he did miss a year but pandemic made these classes online and he was able to attend. In fact all his senior year, his teacher was flexible giving the option of both zoom or in person classes. He would be attending the last class in person at the Temple, looking back how fast time flies. I think we have done our duty in regard to passing our religious and cultural beliefs to my boy. It is now up to him as to the direction he is going to take in the future.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there.
