My Mother in Law Always Loves Special Occasions
@MarionBowes loves any opportunity to dress up the house and set the table to match the occasion. Yummy chocolates with a few gifts snuck in too on this occasion...
This always happens to me with food pictures, once the food comes out, I stop taking photos! Food is highly distracting for me so I will just describe it. A caeser salad with homemade dressing and croutons. Chilli which was so hearty and delicious, just perfect for this damp winter day. Buns (of course I brought em haha) and the most delicious brownie that Craig made, plus don't tell the kids but I got a cookie too secretly in the kitchen that Craig had also made, he's quite the adept in the baking department!
We cleaned up the place, the kids played for a bit with their micro machines downstairs, and the men chatted. Haha it's just kind of a joke because we Women always complain that Brendan and Craig talk more than us. Truly though, I am glad they have such a great bond and rapport. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a relationship with their parents like B has with his.
Another thing I forgot to take photos of, outside! I wanted to get into the garden and get some shots of some trees and bushes I saw beginning to bud. Also the ocean there was spectacular today with the sun beginning its decent. So here, have this weak attempt at an ourdoor photo :)
Joey Cat is not amused with those weak ass night photos, nor is he amused that I have botched his photo op too. I'm glad we're not spending the night, I have a feeling he would cut me in my sleep!
Oh yeah one last thing...
@PoleBird asked me last week how her little godchicken James Bond was doing. I proceeded to inform her that @hendrix22 had seen her in the bottom of the barbecue the other day, they jump in from the back, I have seen John Cena go in there too and I always just assumed they were eating grease or burned crusties of food. And I don't know why it took so long for it to hit me, but I ended up checking inside...
These #chickenbitches hahahha! I cannot understand why the life of me, that a cold metal container, with no straw, no woodshavings, nothing, would be a comfortable spot to lay an egg as opposed to their nesting boxes or the 3 other outdoor nests that they have which at least have leaves and are in the dirt...but a metal bottom? A new level has been reached. Needless to say I keep the doors open now so they don't want to lay in there again. Chickens love their privacy and who can blame em really?
