It was another grey, overcast, cool day. It looked like it might rain, but it didn't. I relaxed and spent the morning responding to blog comments, posting another blog post, watching TV, and knitting.
Today was a day for phone calls. Daughter called, neighbor T called for our usual Sunday morning chat, two of my cousins called, another cousin texted, one of my aunts called and I called another aunt and a friend.
Since daughter wasn't able to come down for Mother's Day, this year (we will celebrate when she does come down over Memorial Day weekend), I had to make my own Mother's Day brunch:
|Mother's Day Brunch: Bacon, scrambled egg, fried potatoes, and sparkling blood orange drink|
I actually cooked the entire package of bacon and froze the cooked bacon in portions of 3-4 rashers of bacon per package. The bacon fat was poured into a jar and will be kept in the fridge to use as flavoring. Later in the day, I cooked the chicken breasts I had bought on Friday. I just sauteed them with a little onion, salt, and pepper, and used some of the bacon fat from the brunch to flavor them. I mostly wanted some cooked chicken breasts to freeze to have on hand for future meals.
Afterwards, I did the dishes and cleaned the kitchen - cleared and wiped the counters, wiped the stove top, swept and mopped the floor. I also tidied the cabinet where I keep some of the canned and boxed food items and put away some of the items I bought on Friday. Now, I just need to stay out of the kitchen so it remains clean! LOL.
I also picked an orange from my tree:

I had it after dinner:
|Fresh Orange for Dessert|
On Sunday, I was grateful for:
- My daughter for making me a mother
- Family and friends who called
- Fresh oranges from the garden
- A relaxed day
- A clean kitchen
How was your Mother's Day Sunday? If you celebrate Mother's Day on a different day, then, how was your Sunday? Did you have a good day?
