This has been a less than stellar spring. Many cloudy days, many many overly chilly days. We've barely reached 70 more than a couple of times so May 1 is bringing a lot of hope for some warmth. But what's been disorienting this morning is all the stories about Mother's Day. I had to stop and think for a minute if this was Mother's Day weekend.
But no. Just a whole lot of reports and surveys about Mother's Day. "How much do we spend?" "How many families go out to eat?" "Florists gearing up to be very busy." Very weird, but probably part of the everlasting consumer culture we live in.
