First Mother's Day

Well, the best laid plans and all that.

I picked up flowers and a scented candle for daisy_knotwise before rehearsal yesterday. Fortunately, we got started just late enough to give Gretchen time to arrange the flowers I'd brought.

Unfortunately, yesterday evening I came down with fever and lower digestive cramping. This has persisted through today, so -- although we did manage to run out for lunch -- my dinner is consisting of soup and rolls. Gretchen has more options. This has put a bit of a cramp in my plans for Mother's Day.

On the other hand, Gretchen did get cards from me, Katie, and fuzzbucket_cat along with a Fannie May Mint Meltaway when we headed out to lunch, so not all plans failed. And we've picked up a copy of Music and Lyrics to watch after dinner.

So it wasn't a total loss. ;)
