Me mither's here!
Every time I see Doris Day she reminds me of my mom when I was growing up in the mid to late 60's. The way she did her hair, the clothes she wore, the whole shebang. I'm 5'7", my mom is 5'1"... so I'm justified in saying she's cute as a button.
Mom's here, and we had a lovely visit last night. I'm working day shift this week, so when I got home the friend who picked Mom up at the airport dropped her off at my house, and we visited. Bear made an absolutely delicious Paleo lasagna (substituted eggplant slices fried in coconut flour for the noodle part) and we ate like kings. I'd picked up a bottle of Mom's favorite wine on my way home, and we sipped that while we ate. Afterwards, we watched the first two episodes of Downton Abbey. Mom hadn't seen it before, and now she's good and hooked!
Thankfully, the new air mattress arrived just in time, and Bear and I had a lovely sleep on a firm, double-thick airbed. So even though it's just after 6AM and I drank a bit of wine and stayed up late last night, I don't feel like I was dragged nekkid through a briar patch by my ankle. This cup of coffee I'm drinking is helping, too.
Hope the rest of you enjoy your Sunday! May it be full of relaxing and cozy moments, late sleeping, robe-wearing, coffee cup and newspaper moments. May your favorite sports or nature programs be on the telly this afternoon. May you be just in the middle of a really good book, with many pages left to enjoy. May there be plenty of easily re-heatable leftovers in your fridge, or a good Chinese food delivery place close by. Snuggle up!
I'm off to work!
