Yesterday, THE BEST!

Yesterday was wonderful! A beautiful day. All of the ones that belong in our nest were safely inside, snuggled away. What a fun day to rest and relax and celebrate all things "motherhood related" as the wind blew torrents of cold spring rain to water the not so thirsty ground. The homemade ice cream was "delish" ~ delightful ~ delectable ~ "delovely"!
And at the end of the day who wouldn't want to stand in the cold wind and rain, on the back porch here at "A Romantic Porch" to sort through 6 bags of garbage looking for a receipt that had inadvertently been thrown away a mere 2 days ago, after realizing that the recently purchased shoes listed on the receipt were coming apart due to some defective "gene" in them. Yes sirree I did! There are the blue "garbage digging gloves" to prove it! See right there beside the rescued receipt.

Now who in their right mind would dig through 6 bags of garbage at 10 pm (because the trash collector comes at the unearthly hour of 6:30 am on Monday morning) and take pictures to prove it? Then of all things BLOG about it ~~~ for crying out loud! Well, I guess I would (raising hand timidly), because you see that's just what Mothers do! Well, isn't it?
The week is off to a great start! Come again soon for more adventures from "A Romantic Porch".
Love, Rachel

No receipt means no money back!!!
Yummy looking icecream ther too!
Happy to read that you had a great Mother's day

I suppose it was the last bag too. I'm glad it was salvagable :-) Not many things worse than being asked where yesterdays newspaper is and realizing that it is under the used coffee filter. ugh!

TattingChic said...

Well, I'm glad you found it, you're not the only one who's done that to be sure.

Hello~ I found you through Terrie's little piece of serenity. LOL, that is so funny! I would have done the same thing! Thank goodness there wasn't a bunch of sticky, ucky food on the receipt!!

Ronda said...

Been there, done that, too! What a fun job! Actually, at work if we can't find a sponge from the delivery table...we have to go through the garbage THERE to find it! THAT'S really fun!(smile) Homemade icecream is always so yummy...your picture made me want to make some! Hope that your day was special! (Loved the pic of Tiffany!)

Rachel - Sometimes I have to "dig" for something to blog about, too!


happybunny said...

Am so glad you found the receipt - I have done this myself many times. When you eventually find what you're looking for its a great feeling isnt it.

Esther said...

Thank goodness you realized you needed the receipt BEFORE Monday at 6:30 AM!

Your ice cream looks as delicious as it tastes! Yum! I'd like a bowl of it!

I'm glad you had a great Mother's Day!

Love, Esther

Linda said...

I'm glad you found the receipt, but I'm sorry you had to rummage through so many bags. A mother's work is never done!

I'd like a bowl of that ice cream. Will you share the recipe with us? My mouth is watering!

I know there were shots of garbage beneath the photo of the ice cream but my brain wouldn't let me get past that delicious looking bowl. Oh how I long for some homemade ice cream.

Tracie said...

Hi Rachel,
Glad you had a great Mother's Day (except for the garbage part, but a moms gotta do what a moms gotta do!).

That ice cream looks delicious!

Happy Day!

Brook said...

The ice cream looks delicious! Yum!

That trash bag scene sure looks familiar to me.


Picket said...

P.S. Glad you found it, mine was covered in the most foul stuff...

Feathering My Nest said...

Who in their right mind? All of us would do it, wouldn't we. LOL!!! I'm so glad you found that receipt Rachel. Hugs, Kathi

meg said...

I am laughing only because I have done the same thing; glad the rest of the day was a little sweeter :-)

I'm guessing just about every woman worth her salt has a good garbage digging story. We were at my son's co-op eating lunch when his tooth fell out. He inadvertantly threw it away along with his paper plate when he was done. I dug through their large community trash can until I found his plate...and the tooth! As I was digging, I got to hear comments such as, "Now there's a devoted mom..." LOL!
