Today's Flowers: a bunch of Lilies and roses...


No, no I wasn't talking about these lilies...

This is our bunch of lilies and roses:



What a weekend!
As it'll be a history in a few hours I can take a minute for a comprehensive review:


*SATURDAY*
My sis left the house at 8:00am to go for a weekend trip with her husdand.
I couldn't refuse the baby-sitting of her three lovlies and I became their "weekend mom" for a day and a half. It was her first weekend without children since she was married (9 years ago).

My hubby was painting his mother's house and I washed her curtains, windows,doors and kitchen fitments as soon as he finished his work.
And ofcoursed I COOKED!
For 11 people!!!


*SUNDAY*
I prepared for gilrs my special "hotel breakfast" and they really cleaned every plate!!!


One of my cousins that I had a lot of time to see phoned and told me that he was coming to visit us in a few hours. Ofcourse I was very happy. The only thing that was eating me was that my oldest daughter had a history test and how would I help her!
My sister returned at 1:30pm and took her daughters home, my cousin left at 7:00pm and my head is all of a swim from history....! And I have tons of rough-dry clothes...!

What a weekend indeed, you keep open house there (this is the english expression as I looked it up, in Flemish we call it the sweet invasion. We use this for the place of people who are very warm and welcoming, as you are, and who cook tastfull meals, ... )
