Belated Mother's Day post. (copied from old weblog)

This year, I decided that Mother's Day would not suck.

So I bought myself a lovely Mother's Day gift, watched it snow until mid-afternoon, and took too many pictures.

I started a week in advance by ordering myself a pair of close-out Birkenstock from Footprints, the only reason I would stop to Kansas aside from rest stops and the Steak N' Shake right off I-70 in Topeka. They arrived a few days prior to the holiday, so I hoped for good weather to wear them on Mother's Day.

Naturally, it snowed.

Looking out my north bedroom window, Mother's Day morning.

I didn't feel like sliding around in the yard to get a picture of my feet in their new digs, so do admire the carpet near my computer chair.

My feet in their new Birkis. Yes, I know they're a bit wide.

Laurel "wrote" a gift message on my invoice when I ordered the Birkis, but since I couldn't get a picture of her modeling them, you can pretend to be mushy over how darn cute she is asleep. (Doesn't take after me, that's for sure.)

Laurel, napping. The furry thing int he lower left of the photo is a stuffed dog.

Happy (belated) Mother's Day, y'all.
