Mother’s Day was fun this year. Sean called and offered to take me to dinner. I asked if I could think about it for a few minutes. I didn’t want to reject his gift offer, but at the same time, I realized going out to eat means I have less time to share with him. Usually we’re all focused on menus, service, food, etc. I wanted real time together. I called him back and asked if he would like to come over and roast chicken dogs on the back patio. We’ve never done anything like this before for a “formal” holiday. I think in a moment of presence, I realized I didn’t want to be out at a fancy restaurant. I wanted time with Sean. To my surprise, there was no hesitation and Sean responded with, “Okay, let’s do it.”
I lit up the pot belly stove I had scored at an estate sale some years ago. I’d never lit it before, so I wasn’t sure if it would warm us in the cloudy cool weather. After about an hour of burning it felt like a powerful heater! It was a great Mother’s Day. Maybe one of my favorites in recent years.
Sean and Olivia were good sports about the entire experience.
No fancy cookin’ today.
