I guess THIS post is okay to not be friends-only

If you want something done, you have to do it yourself. By which I mean you ask for your mom to help you with manual labor the day before Mother's Day. On Saturday we pulled all of the weeds from in front of La Maison de Bumblebee, brought over plants and paving stones from the yard at Wabash, and arranged all of it (plus some lilies of the valley that my mom brought from her yard) in a neat pattern. I can't say what was originally here, but Victorians were all about formal planting arrangements.

Yeah, I still have to sweep the curb and street. I'll get to that this week.

On Sunday I took my mom to Inn Season Cafe for Mother's Day brunch. She had said before that she wanted to see the Titanic exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum, so I took her there. It was really interesting, although it was a bit of a downer that we spent Mother's Day at an exhibit that overwhelms visitors with existential dread. But it was still very much worth the visit!
