Happy Mother's Day...........

This new glass mixing bowl is one of my Mother's day gifts.  My KitchenAid is old, probably from the 1980s but it still works great.  I was never sure whether any of the accessories for it would fit mine since so many other models have come out.  I have the stainless steel bowl that came with it but this one has a pouring spout which might be handy for cake batter.

My other gift is an assortment of Pampered Chef products and I'll take a photo later today.  I don't spend a lot of time in the kitchen but when I do I like to have efficient tools that make cooking easier.
When I got home from our family dinner I spent some time in the back yard.  I cut some dead parts of the black raspberry bushes, cut volunteer trees and dug out lilies from an area that doesn't get enough sunshine.  It will give more space for the hostas to spread out.  The Lungwort/Pulmonaria is still blooming.  I love the spotted leaves.
