A Lovely Day

The Mencats made a lovely Mother's Day brunch this morning for me and my awesome Mother-In-Law...


The boy came up with the menu. Bacon and cream cheese stuffed French Toast.

He chopped and fried the bacon, then beat the eggs.

 The Wonderhub was the head supervisor and dish doer. 

 I'm a vegetarian so my French Toast was stuffed with berries and cream cheese. So fine!


The boy made me a little heart carved out of oak.


This is the boy with my amazing Mother-In-Law. She just got back from Burma.

This is what my hub wrote about his mom,

"My mom rocks!

She taught me how to make hospital corners and do sutures like a nurse (I'll show you the scar later) She taught me how to re-finish furniture.


When a teacher wanted to send me back a year because of my dyslexia, she got me tested, but then wouldn't let them move me up a year.


She taught me how to grow tomatoes like a farmer and how to curse like a sailor.


She once got in trouble for riding a donkey through a hotel rec-room on a family vacation.


Because of my mom, I love travel, shows on PBS and drinking tea. Sometimes I spell color with a 'U' in it.


Because of my mom I love to read and cook. I can iron.


She's the first person to call if you are hurt or in trouble, because she will get you out it and/or tend your wounds--then threaten to beat the crap out of you.


My mom rocks!"


In case of the zombie apocalypse or getting stranded on a desert island these are the two people that you want on your team. By sundown you would have running water, electricity and be sipping a cocoanut cooler in a handwoven hammock in a two story treehouse.

Tonight we are hanging out with my mom. :-)

Happy Mother's Day!
