After the wild storms we had Friday and Saturday putting a crimp in my online style and the general hecticness of the weekend, I forgot to remember to think up a post for today.   Shocking, I know.  But that’s OK, since Princess Nagger is off school today and hubby is taking a 1/2 day from work, so I’ll be alternating my time between playing dinosaur games and making Wine Jelly.

Meanwhile, a phenomenon happened over the weekend.  Hovering Hubby actually listened during our prior conversations about Mother’s Day.

Best. Mother’s Day. Ever.

No, I didn’t get showered with diamonds and jewels (nor did I expect or want to – that should be saved for the anniversary coming up in August), but hubby did run out and get a breakfast wrap for me (even though we normally don’t eat breakfast (I know, bad) but he insisted on going out to get breakfast and jokingly referred to his ban from the kitchen).

He also did all his own laundry and finally took care of a mountain of clothes he had stacked up in the upstairs bathroom because he has some aversion to dresser drawers.  When I came out to the Summer House with my morning coffee, these were waiting for me on a dusty chair:

Sure, they’re wrapped in Christmas paper, but the paper is deer, which is my favorite animal.

Princess Nagger kept chanting “Best Mom in the World!” and showering me with hugs and kisses.  She invited me to play a video game with her, allowing me to choose whichever one I wanted, and suggested over and over that it be the game she’s already playing.  You know, because it’s fun.

In spite of the blustery cold day (I know, ‘blustery cold’ and ‘May’ don’t usually go together) hubby was still determined to grill steaks for dinner.  He made his delectable mushrooms for the steaks (yes, there is one pan he’s allowed to use) and let them simmer for a while, then Princess Nagger volunteered to peel the garlic:

She helped season the steaks and wanted to flip them on the grill, but hubby beat her to the punch (since she was a little busy with a game) but she assisted on the final mode:

There were two smaller steaks that hubby had already removed at the risk of them overcooking – one of which Princess Nagger happily devoured half of, proclaiming her love for steak and mushrooms.

So my wish to get a little pampering and appreciation for one day came to fruition.  The Phenomenon made me very happy indeed.

How was your weekend?
