Spane was upset on Friday when he told me that he had forgotten my Mother’s Day present at school. He started crying and I hugged him and said that he, himself, was the best present I had ever gotten. I mean that.
Last year, with the help of our roommate and friend, Maria, Spane made a whole tablescape and breakfast parfait. This year, since he’s now eight, he wanted to do everything himself. We have a knitted throw blanket that he used as a table-cloth, and he cleaned the kitchen all by himself! I was so proud!
I was asleep this morning when our lovely Maine Coon, Rolo, came up to me and touched my face with his paw. I opened one eye and saw he was getting ready to do it again, only this time there were claws. I said to him, “Did Spane tell you to wake me up?” I swear the cat nodded his head! I got out of bed, and Spane was excited to show me the neat and clean kitchen.
Spane went to the trouble this morning of making me his very own Rosy Smoothie, all by himself. It was delicious!
I hope everyone has a Happy Mothers’ Day – even if you’re not a mother!
Here’s Spane’s special secret recipe for the best ever smoothie. I asked him what he put in it, and this is what he told me. Enjoy!
- 1 tablespoon Rose Preserve
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup blackberries
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- Shaved Ice
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve in tall glasses.
- Quick notes
- If you have one of those Margarita machines, you can put the ice in the top of the machine.
