We celebrated Mom's Day on Saturday because everyone who knows this mom KNOWS that Sunday's are my decompress day. Now I may do things with my day, but they are always things of my choosing. It is one of the small ways I try to keep my sanity.
When asked what I wanted I said a BBQ would be nice.
So last night we had hamburgers and brats that Jake cooked on the grill. He bought all kinds of fancy buns along with any possible cheese selection your heart could desire. My daughter made her famous potato salad. It really is to die for. Doug brought, oh man, I can't remember the name. Grape leaves with a rice, meat mixture inside... starts with a D... for delicious. It was really fun.
The kids also got me a new ceiling fan. The old one died last year after sixteen years of loyal service. Much appreciated since the weather decided to warm up for Mom's Day. I also got a couple of pounds of this delicious coffee that I recently fell in love with. It was an awesome Mom's Day. I've got great kids.
I took the camera and got a few pics of the kids.
Jess and Stavo
This is my Grand-Cat Conan.
Jake belongs to him. In the picture of Jess and Stavo you can see behind them a ginorous carpeted structure. It is a cat tree that Jake built for Conan. It has height, it has hidy holes, it has everything a cat could desire. Conan was not very happy in this picture. We were outside in the atrium and had shut the screen door. He did not deign to use the cat door and felt that one of his royal subjects should open the screen door. When that did not happen he got grumpy and repaired to his cat house where he could ignore the inferior species that was crowding his home.
Happy Mom's Day to all the mother's out there and to the kids who appreciate them.
