Birthday mom doodle

This good-looking lady with wild hair is my mom!

Today is her 69th birthday – happy birthday, Mom! (She’s a devoted follower on all my platforms – so I know she’ll see this about 2 seconds after it’s posted).

Most often you’ll see my mom juggling a phone, the newspaper, knitting gear AND a cup of black tea at the same time (I couldn’t fit the tea in the doodle – how do mothers carry so many things at once?). At other times she’ll be in the garden or out on one of many daily walks with the dog, reading books, sewing, knitting or baking something, putting on another layer of woolly clothes, sending videos on Snapchat of my dad doing work around the house, or making pancakes for her grandchildren (and other lucky people a.k.a. me).

Conversation with my mom on Christmas Eve:

Me: That’s a nice shirt!

My mom: I’m the kind of person who always ends up buying lots of horrible clothes. Now I’ve decided to start to wear them!

Me:

Receiving compliments is not one of her superpowers 😀
