Lovin’ that Sunshine

April 2nd, 2009

It has been a simply gorgeous day here in Neverland, and as much as I love the contacts the computer gives me, I prefer to spend my time outside when it’s weather like this. I can’t help it. We’ve had nasty weather for so long, that I am drawn to the sunshine and blue skies. Since Marcel is working tomorrow, my plan is to spend some time outside working on a few things, after I get things done inside. That’s the only downfall of spending most of your time outside or away, is that things in house don’t get done, so I do need to play catch-up.

I also have an Easter brunch to plan. Desere and I decided that we would like to have Easter dinner together, so I asked Marcel if he would talk to his mom about us not being there for dinner next Sunday. Since they don’t really do anything special, I didn’t see it being a big problem, but Marcel was concerned that it may be.

I made the suggestion that instead of us coming for dinner, that we could come for brunch if his mom wanted to have brunch- and that I would be happy to help. She actually liked that idea, and I took it a step further and suggested that we have it here instead. I wanted to make alot of small things, such as mini- quiches, mini- muffins, and yogurt with fresh fruit in small glasses, among other things. I knew it would be a pain to take all that to her place, so I thought here would be better, and she said it was A-OK with her, as long as I agreed to let her pay for it. She insisted, so I’ll let her.

Anyone have any brunch ideas? I wanted to make it fun and special, and something non-traditional for them. I’ll be planning the menu this weekend, and start sorting recipes and grocery lists the beginning of next week.

I plan to have a mixture of healthy and not-so-healthy choices, and hopefully my sister-in-law won’t feel like she needs to start taking Fenphedra again. I keep trying to get through to her that there really is no magic ‘fix’ to lose the weight, but to make healthy choices. I bet she’s sorry she asked me. hehe

It should be fun though. I love cooking, as if that were any surprise.

Since Marcel is snoozing- (he has to be up early for work), I actually have some extra time, so I’m going to try to catch up with some of your journals. I’ve missed yáll, and feel so out of touch.
