May 2014 — Mother's Love
● By Enjoy Magazine
We didn’t see too many April showers, but we’re delighting in the May flowers that surround us during this exquisite time of year. This month, we’re showering bouquets of love upon the wonderful women in our lives who have earned the esteemed title of “mother.” We have plenty of creative ideas for honoring the loveliest ladies in your lives.
Treat your mom, grandmother, sister, daughter or dearest friend to a show by the Siskiyou Senior Players, who will light up the stage over Mother’s Day weekend at the College of the Siskiyous’ Black Box Theater. Or venture over the mountains and enjoy the incredible Kinetic Grand Championship, a madcap mélange of art and engineering in Humboldt County.
If Mom is a music lover, she’ll enjoy being serenaded during the last concerts of the season for the North State Symphony, which is also the finale for music director and conductor Kyle Wiley Pickett. During his tenure, the symphony has become one of the finest regional orchestras in California.
For the thrill-seeking moms among us, consider a spin on a stand-up paddleboard on the Sacramento River. The folks at WASSUP Board Sports have tips to get you started.
If you’re looking for a more tangible treat, wander into Petals in Mount Shasta, where Jamie Wright’s passion for flowers blends with her love of community to create a unique and delightful shopping experience. Or explore the wineries along the Tehama Trail, where you’ll become more acquainted with the people who produce some of our favorite wines. Hoping to spoil your favorite lady without breaking the bank? The Discovery Shop in Redding is offering all sorts of gently-used gardening goodies for sale, and proceeds fight cancer. Don’t forget to peek into Enjoy the Store in Redding or Red Bluff for a locally produced treasure.
Happy Mother’s Day, and enjoy!
