My Kind of Day
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.
A day where you felt a little bit spoiled.
Thank you to all women who devote their lives to the care of precious children.
After we arrived home from church, Mr. Cactus and our Son-In-Law treated us to the best presents.
There is nothing more attractive than a man cooking dinner, unless it's two men cooking dinner.
Mr. Cactus makes the best marinade.
And, as a restaurant owner, Dano knows how to cook chicken to perfection.
They prepared a beautiful fruit salad.
With mashed potatoes, and grilled asparagus.
Healthy, beautiful food, full of color.
Thank you men!
Mr. Cactus knows that I really don't enjoy watching TV very much, except for PBS and Masterpiece Theater.
Too many of the current shows shock my system.
When I quilt, I often retreat to the safety of classic movies, found through our local library.
Mr. Cactus gave me this Hollywood Cinema Collection with 60 Classic Movies.
Add up the total hours, and I just might get some serious quilting done.
Oh, which one shall I watch first?
He also added in the 2nd season of Downton Abbey.
After reading many of your comments and recommendations, we recently watched the first season on DVD from the library.
We knew Downton Abbey was a must if Jimmy Fallon took notice.
Have you seen his spoofs Downton Sixby ?
You can watch clips over on his web site.
Pick me up off the floor hilarious!
