Hunting Gifts and Fabulous Mother’s Day

I had a couple of my girlfriends ask yesterday what I did and what I got for Mother’s Day.  I was so excited to tell them about my great weekend; they just didn’t seem to be feeling it with me.  Only an outfitter wife/mom would appreciate the special gifts received from her husband and daughter this Mother’s Day.

The gift-receiving began Friday before Mother’s Day.  My lovely daughter gave me a hand-made clay bowl.  It is super cute!  It is pink and has black zebra stripes on the side with white outlining them.  I love it, and I put it in my bathroom to hold my hair clippies.

Next, I got to help chase water Saturday because we are irrigating.  I enjoy playing with the water and watching it flow down or across the land.  We have dug out our lower pond; now it is three times as large.  It will have an island for the ducks, and we added some logs for the structure for the fish once it is full.  I know, I know.  Irrigating?  Fun?  Yes, it is when you don’t have to do it every day, and it will be great when the new pond is full of water and the duck’s return.

Mother’s Day morning I awoke to Hank saying “Hurry! Hurry!  There’s something out there.  You need to shoot it.”  I sleepily crawled out of bed and put on my slippers.  I was slightly confused and possibly still in the middle of dreamland.  He grabbed my bow and handed me my release telling me to put it on.  I asked him “What is it?” He said to hurry and put the release on before it ran away.  I did as I was told and then moved quickly, heading to the door.  Then suddenly I woke up enough to realize what it may be.  Hank was running out the door with me right behind when I said “It’s a new target!”

Sure enough!  It was a new 3-D target!  I was excited, and even though I was sleepy-eyed, I had to throw my arrow at it for good measure.  What fun!  With a new handmade dish, a new pond, and a new target, my Little Gal took me out to brunch with my Mom!

OH! Forgot to mention the one item they may regret…  A new gobbler.  Have I ever mentioned that those make excellent alarm clocks in the morning?  hee hee!
