Shout-Out Sunday – 11 May 2014 – Some Mothers on their Day…

The Shout-Out Sunday web site for today, May 11, 2014, is:

Famous Mothers – Mother’s Day History

Lots of good reading in this site. If you enjoy history, like I do, I think you’ll find some good things to read in here.

Here is something you might like, all about “Mothering Sunday” as opposed to our “Mother’s Day” here in the US:

Mothering Sunday 2014 – Mother’s Day UK

…and a recipe for making Simnel Cake which is a tradition in the UK on Mothering Sunday.

Click on this link for some interesting “mother” quotations:

“But kids don’t stay with you if you do it right. It’s the one job where, the better you are, the more surely you won’t be needed in the long run.” — Barbara Kingsolver

Here’s another quote I quite like too:

“Spend at least one Mother’s Day with your respective mothers before you decide on marriage. If a man gives his mother a gift certificate for a flu shot, dump him.” — Erma Bombeck

There’s always room for humor in any subject of conversation!

Famous Mothers and Daughters in History

There is quite a large collection of articles and ideas in this expansive web site. I know you don’t all have the time to sit and browse through it all, but it’s here when or if you want to come back later… or just save it somewhere.

Notable Women

The link above is fabulous. I could get lost in there for the rest of this year if allowed to…

Happy Mother’s Day, my friends.

Bex & Family

“I can never read all the books I want;

I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

I can never train myself in all the skills I want.

And why do I want?

I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life.

And I am horribly limited.”

~Sylvia Plath~

    Hope you’re having a wonderful spring day, Bex!


  2. Happy Mother’s Day to you Bex, hope you have a great day with Paul and the furry “kids”!

    Great links, and I love the Kingsolver quote!

    Thanks San!

    Nina, no, we are behind too in bloomage. The tulips are up and blooming just fine under the crab tree, but the bedding blue plants are just barely starting to pop out, not enough to photograph yet as is the pot o’ gold – not even started yet. The trees are leafed out nicely but the crab has no blooms on it yet… they come later than other trees.

    The blooming quince is only about half-way bloomed… Paul trims that thing back every year and in the process snips a lot of the blooming buds off I think.

    We have only a few daffs here and there, nothing like your riotous display as if you were in Farndale, Yorkshire!!!

    Farndale Daffodils, N. Yorkshire, England

    We need more daffs! I’d say another week and I’ll take some more photos…

    Love your links, Bex! Thank you!
    Are your trees as full of flowers by now as the Crow Cottage in the banner photo? Mother’s Day here was always full of blooming lilacs. Not this year! We are so behind in spring… On the upside — lilacs still ahead of us!
