I love a list with lots of things crossed off it! Yesterday was a great day for that. (Of course, I put things on it that I knew I would do - like grocery shopping...) We had the Fisher's in for a BBQ last night, so I needed to mow the lawn AND clean house. Since the weather is so nice right now, we ate on the patio, so....it too needed to be cleaned up. I was busy yesterday! Ralph BBQ'ed some chicken (very nicely too - he had a flare-up on the BBQ, but still managed to not burn the chicken.), pasta salad, baked beans, and corn of the cob. Meredith brought triple-berry shortcake for dessert - perfect!
Alex had planned a trip to the beach this weekend, but I got a message from him Friday morning (his Friday night) that he wasn't going - he was sick. Turns out the flu is going through the dorms, and since dinner usually consists of eating from a communal bowl, everyone was getting it. and passing it along Poor baby! He did spoil my Mother's Day present surprise though. I had thanked him for the knife that he had gotten me for Mother's Day (courtesy of his Dad). He told me he had an even better present for me - a Pokemon tin of cookies that he got in Tokyo. Except......the cookies were expiring on Saturday, so he was going to eat them for me. I would still have the really cool tin though.
