My mum is a nut. And I love her for it.
She keeps us in stitches. And keeps us guessing. We drove by a small two-seater sports car once, and she said "Oh look, a two-people person!" She meant car, of course...and the windy day when she said "look how the flags are flagging!"...meaning "flying".
And doesn't everyone listen to "Sympathy Number Three" on the radio?
She does love my blog friends, although she won't look at my computer. She hates computers, she thinks they're the devil's tool. [Not really...she just thinks she's too old to learn one. I tell her I have friends here who are in their 80's and she thinks I'm telling tall tales.] So when the boys and I talk, about computers or websites or youtube or facebook, or blogging, she doesn't get it, and gets a bit testy.
Tonight on the way to the library, the boys were talking about something computer-related, and one said to the other, "I'll google that when we get home". To which my mother promptly replied, "I'd rather giggle than google".
For some reason, that sent us into paroxysms of laughter...I almost veered into oncoming traffic. I wonder what the poor guy who saw me coming at him, with my maniacally laughing face, was thinking?
She's lucky I'm a good driver. I have no idea why that struck us so funny, but it did - and once we started, we couldn't stop. It doesn't help that Sam has the most contagious laugh you've ever heard. When he was little, he'd get the giggles at bedtime - so bad that he would almost cry. I loved to hear him laugh, so when he started to wind down, I'd say "you crack you up" and off he would go again. I'm a cruel mother. I would do it more than once....even more than twice. *evil grin*
I like to read even more than I like to sew, so I was thrilled beyond belief when I found the latest Flavia de Luce book at the library tonight.
This has to be my favorite series ever. I highly recommend starting at the very beginning...there are only four. I read the whole thing tonight. Can't put them down! I do love a good read. The series features an 11yo girl as the heroine, but don't let that put you off, she's the most unusual 11yo you've ever met.
Hope you have a great week, stitching, reading, gardening, or whatever your hands find to do - and that you laugh lots!
