Home from Hawaii for a few weeks before it’s Mazel Tov to Cynthia and Mike time.
May 20 National Mother-of-the-Bride Day!
In honor of National Mother-of-the-Bride Day my sisters took me to the Korean Spa where we luxuriated in hot water from a great number of delivery systems, and enjoyed a fantastic scrub and a massage.
AHHH. And then we had some nice soup for dinner. .a near perfect day, the only thing needed to make it absolutely perfect would be the Bride, but she was a couple of thousand miles away.
I asked Lilly if she wanted to get a book for us to read and she went directly to the floor of her closet and retrieved the vegan cupcake cookbook she had stashed there and wanted me to read her this recipe. Really.
So I asked her if she would like it if we made those cupcakes. Whooo, NOW, she would like it if we made those cupcakes NOW.
On a side note, I didn’t have my little flash and used the built-in instead this picture being a nice reminder of how much better the other one is with the nasty shadows.
That’s right, my valley girl friend Marsha who doesn’t eat onions, doesn’t eat food with ‘too many colors’, doesn’t eat food with ‘too many ingredients’ chose for us to go to dim sum. Where they serve chicken feet.
I could see why from what she ordered – there are several plain things and she knew all of them.
I don’t know why this came into my mind but I got the idea to study up on Eisenhower. In my childhood I thought my father was like him for no reason but looks, and that my father was both bossy and bland. I was young and they were old.
I’ve watched an Eisenhower biopic and WWII fiction and an interesting documentary from 1945 put out by the War Department that has that newsreel-propaganda feel.
