Computer Problems Again

We spent much of the week without a working Internet server. What a bummer :(

On a happier note, we really enjoyed having Jenny home for a few days. On Mother's Day, we went down to Brighton to visit Jeff. We went to Buddy's for pizza. Buddy's has the best deep dish pizza in Detroit and according to their menu, their pizza is in the top 5 in the nation. Our family loves pizza and Jenny is pizza deprived in Colorado, so she especially enjoyed the meal. I received some very nice Mother's Day presents. Here are a couple.

Jenny found this pin for me on Etsy. I have already received a lot of compliments on it from my sewing friends. In the below picture you can see how small the detail is.

Ang sent me the cute serving plate below.

Ang told me the reason she purchased the plate was it looked like SNOG (from a previous post). I thinks she is right, it looks like a snake but is really a dog.

Just a few more photos of the flowers popping up. Below is a flowering strawberry plant, it blooms most of the summer and doesn't produce eatable berries.

The tree by the driveway is in full bloom.

It is also full of buzzing bees. As long as I leave them alone, they seem to ignore me, thank goodness.

What a cute tiny pin. Love strawberry plants...mine produce a hot orange flower.

Nice Mother's Day gifts! The pin is a quilter's envy. The snog plate is cute.
