Happy early Mother’s Day, everyone! I’ve been giving a bit of thought to what I’d really like this weekend to look like.
I never seem to have enough time to putter, so cruising through Pinterest on Saturday morning (after sleeping in, of course) is top of my list.
On Sunday, I just might drop off Eve at Ivivva Athletica in Chinook Centre for a free beginner dance class from 10am-11am. They switch up the style of dance every week (this week it’s yoga), and kids from 3 to 15 years are welcome. Hmmm…. what might a mother do with an hour to herself in the mall? Target, is that you I hear calling me?
One thing I’m not a fan of is Mother’s Day brunch. But cocktails and cake? Giddy up! Calgary’s CHARCUT Roast House is serving up “Mumsy” – a champagne and Calvados cocktail sweetened with sugar diamonds. They’re also offering post-dessert bonbons neatly wrapped as a take-away gift just for Mom. Better get on making that reservation…
Here are some other fun links if you’re in the mood to putter, like me.

A great gift for friends moving house.
Healthy and Delicious: Baked oatmeal with berries and lentils. Kid’s (and husbands) won’t notice the lentils. Promise!
Ways to think of time differently.
Do you need a #hashtag banner? Doesn’t everyone?
A must watch for grocery shoppers. Warning: You’ll never pick up certain yogurts again…
I just heard about little Max, who’s dying of cancer in Texas. He’s too ill to fulfill his wish of travelling to Paris, so his parents are trying to send the world to him. They’re encouraging people to send postcards from where they live, so Max can travel vicariously through our lives. More details here.
What makes an ideal Mother’s Day for you?
