Talked to my Aunt yesterday and asked her how her day was going?
To which she replied, "I have a chicken in the oven, need to steam some broccoli and make a small salad. I have a pan of brownies baked! David is coming for dinner! "
Her son and daughter in law have moved in a small northern Ontario town but drive in everyday and she has them over for lunch.. or more like a dinner.
Aunty was certainly in good spirits and says she'll miss this when they both retire in June and are living in their new cottage that they built at the lake.
I got off the phone and envied my cousin and the wonderful meals and times with his Mom! I wondered if he appreciated this time with his mom.
