Happy Friday

On Fridays I enjoy my home. I spend moments in the daytime reclaiming the space- stashing away every toy, cracker crumb, and stray barrette. Because I know what's coming.
Brian's tapas night.

The magic that happens when Brian takes over the kitchen, and people start streaming in through the back door carrying pans and bowls and platters full of delectible delights.

The children feel much the same way about Friday nights. Pizza, poison, and video games. Yep, that's what I said.

There is something very satisfying about taking back my house on a Friday.
It reminds me that I'm not just a human doing.
That sometimes instead of wiping my chairs, and vacuuming my couch... I can sit on them instead.
That instead of cutting cheese and grapes into bite-sized pieces, and labelling sippy cups in green tape and black marker... I can sip and savour.
Ahhhh.... Happy Friday.

Do you think he could marry me? Do Mennonites do polygamy like that other M religion?

OK, maybe not - come to think of it ICK - on the polygamy but the tapas still look YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMY.

I didn't say Ick about Brian - just about polygamy. Imagine your little girl getting married to someone Brian's age - that is ick. I am sure Brian is as yummy as his food:)
