My mum, Pat is here visiting for a few days. She came with me after I spent last week up at her place in Oliver.
Mum and dad own and operate a catering business, which they have made a real success through all their hard work.
Today, Mum spent all day in my kitchen baking goodies for a Christmas bazaar next weekend. When the kids came home they were all drooling at the mounds and mounds of shortbread, naniamo bars, and brownies, which are now all safely tucked into boxes in the deep freeze. They got to eat the off cuts and mis-shapen pieces! Grandma also made homemade buns to go with the pot roast that I put together for dinner and she spoiled them with brownies for dessert.
My resident nephew, Troy, is such a cute little guy. He calls my mum Grandma, although she is actually his Grandma- in- Law. Keith's mom is really his Grandma. He was overwhelmed at the sight of all the goodies! I just have to constantly remind him not to shake his beautiful golden head of hair when he is in the kitchen! He has a funny little habit of tossing his shiney locks side to side to get it in the shaggy look that he likes. I tried to explain that it could be bad for Grandma's business if customers find hair in their Christmas cookies!
I spent the day doing errands and trying to get caught up on laundry. Mundane tasks made more pleasant by having such good company!
Poor hubby had a muscle spasm in his back yesterday that left him laid out on the floor for three hours. Today he is feeling a lot better but still a bit stiff. He is silly though. I told him to just take it easy, but he had to go to work for a while this morning. As luck would have it, one of the company trucks had a flat tire that he had to change, not an ideal activity for a sore back. In spite of his grumblings about this, when he got home, he got out his tools and got to work on his back door replacement-wall moving project. What an awsome man about the house he is! I think the little backrub I gave him helped to keep him going!
My dryer buzzzzzzzzzer is going off, alerting me to yet more folding to be done. So I am off now to do that. Then I am putting my feet up in my recliner for the rest of the evening. Watching everyone work so hard around here has worn me out!
Thanks for popping by!
