I also am attempting to pin her down in the recliner. She got a new book, so I should succeed on that tomorrow. Two points for me!

Lucky and I kept mom company again.
Which I don't mind, but now that she's on vacation, I hope she stays in bed a little longer than she did yesterday. She was out of bed at 6:15 am! I don't know about you, but I don't want to get up THAT early. Vacation means lots of snuggles and sleeping. I haven't seen either and I want them!

Lucky and I joined mom outside so she wouldn't feel lonely.
It was supposed to rain all day, but it didn't. Mom said it was close to 80 degrees in the shade in the early afternoon. After that it cooled down and got really cloudy. Still no rain though.
Mom's neighbor, who has grown broccoli, says mom's broccoli needs more time in the sun, so she put the plants on the back porch. He also helped her roto-til the area for the garden and the sunflowers. Woo Hoo. It's great to have such fantastic neighbors.

She still has to do the rest of the boysenberry bushes and then work on the raspberry bushes. At least the raspberry bushes don't have pricklies like the boysenberry bushes do. Mom also gave her sister in law some lilies, iris, lilacs, raspberries and boysenberries. She was really happy when she left. I stayed outside all day with mom, lying in the sun, while she worked really hard. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it.

Then she has to get it in place.
Just the right spot mind you.
Then she falls asleep hanging on to it, like a child with a blankie.
Or with it stuck in her mouth, like a child sucking his thumb.
And yes, she is sound asleep in that photo.

See the sunflowers? Mom transplanted them into a deeper storage bin so they could grow more before she plants them outside (and since we haven't had the last frost yet, mom doesn't want to kill them). The only problem is that while mom was transplanting them, and tying them up so they would grow straight, SHE KILLED AT LEAST TEN OF THEM! Yup, you heard me correctly, mom killed ten of them, at the very least. I know mom felt bad about it, because she was saying bad words under her breath, but that didn't stop her from killing them.
I think I might just behave for the next couple of days.

PlusOne waiting for his booster kick. He was really nervous.
With Mr. Karate and mom.
With mom and dad.
With the other 2nd degree black belts. He is the youngest of the group, but has been studying the longest, 8-1/2 years.
With the main instructor (left) and the studio owner (right).
All in all, it was a great day yesterday. Except I didn't get any broccoli. And mom has 43 sunflowers sprouting. They are supposed to grow to 12' tall. They are now 4" tall. I don't know where mom is planning on putting 43 twelve foot high sunflowers.
