My brother-in-law asked if I wanted to meet him for breakfast at a cafe' in town. He had to come into town to do this and that, so I said, "sure." I ordered my usual pancakes, because they are so good, with three sausages on the side.
I haven't seen him in while, cause he was gone all Summer on a music tour in the south, and he just got home. It was a wonderful experience for him, playing the keyboards, and visiting many different states in the south. He sent me a couple pictures of some of the sites he saw along the way.
It was such a nice visit catching up. He has always had a good personality, and has a knack for telling interesting and funny stories.
He is back traveling again for a few weeks, and headed for Seattle, home of the original Starbuck's.
I told him to bring me back something, as Starbuck's is my favorite. ; )
After breakfast, I headed over to the grocery store, and when I saw this door mat, I had to bring it home with me. It made me smile, as this was the title of my last post.
My neighbor made some Wontons with mushrooms, pork, and ginger, and a curry and soy sauce to go with them. She brought some over for me to try. I didn't get a picture, cause they were so good that I gobbled them up.
I always think of my mom in September. Maybe because it is her birth month, or maybe it's that September is a calm month for me, and she was a calm mother, or maybe it's because school starts in September, and she always went above and beyond to make her five children's school year a good one. Whatever the reason, I think of her. She used to make hot chocolate and toast, and when the butter would melt a little, we would dip the toast in the hot chocolate and eat it. She kept the toast coming, and I remember having two or three slices each time. I had some cocoa and bread and butter, so I thought about making this one day. The only difference is that she used the Nestle Quik, which was popular when I was growing up....and still widely used today.
While I was enjoying my hot chocolate and toast, I thought about my mom.
Disney is all decked out for Halloween already, and I love this picture of Jess and Francesca making a scary face.
It's supposed to rain this week! It's cooler now, in the 50's and 60's, and I even had to turn my heater on for a few days. Getting my flannel shirts and sweaters ready to go. Happy Fall!
