|I is ALWAYS cute as a button! |
|Hmmpff! I should go live wiv my friend Gail.|
I bet she wouldn't forget about me!
This was the first time my daughter had been to the island in a long while - She had not met Eddie before (he came to me Dec 30, 2011), nor seen the new kitchen or the raised garden beds and giant planter box I built last summer. She met Mitzi at my cousin's before Anita (Mitzi's former mama) passed away.
She was going to take me out to dinner for Mother's Day, but we couldn't get a reservation for the place we wanted to go and decided we'd rather have a special dinner at home instead. I grilled the meat and she took care of the rest of it (including cleaning up the kitchen - yay!):
|BBQ'd steak and lobster tail, grilled peppers, cuke/avocado/tomato |
and feta salad, and ancient grains salad.
Everything was delicious and we had a lovely relaxing evening at home. Tomorrow I shall show her the new seawalk extension when we walk the dogs, then take her to Nanaimo to catch the seaplane back to downtown Vancouver. A short visit, but a lovely way to spend Mother's Day weekend.
