Be prepared...and have a plan.
That's good advice to follow during Emergency Preparedness Week, isn't it? Being ready for a crisis turns the crisis into something more like a situation.
And that's also excellent advice to follow as we head into Mother's Day. Have you made your plan yet?
If, like my mom, yours loves fresh local food, excellent entertainment, spring flowers and quality people watching opportunities...then the very best place to take her this weekend is to a Vancouver Island Farmers' Market. Combined with spending time with you, it's all of the very best gifts in one basket.
But perhaps your mother isn't with you this year. Get to the market anyway. Fill up on fresh vegetables, tuck into a hot cinnamon bun...and smile, knowing that she'd approve.
