i had a wonderful mother's day. the sun shone, i was showered with cards, flowers, and compliments. the food was good all but for the ham, which was a tad fatty, and the chocolate cake, which came out a bit dry. i was surprised - i found the recipe in the joy of cooking which usually is quite reliable. i might've overbaked it... i was a tad distracted when i baked it. but the other cake, also from the joy, came out really well.
this is a good thing - since im bringing a smaller version of it, and a gift over to my grandmother today. i haven't been to see her in two weeks - and of course she complained to my mother that i NEVER come. (never mind she's seen more of me in the last nine months than she has in the last nine years.) but mama pele must be appeased... i think i will bring her some bananas and sprinkle a little coconut on top of her cake.
today is gray and chilly - a good day to unwind, come down and tidy up. tonight is also kickboxing. this is the first week since starting this regimen that i have time to do all three classes. may goddess have mercy on my soul.
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
