Mother's Day! Did y'all have a good one? Me too! In fact, mine was surprisingly great, considering I had to work.
Number One Son made a lovely breakfast; my whole family stopped by the pharmacy to say hello and bring me flowers; my lovely daughter and her boyfriend not only brought flowers, but they also brought me chocolate--good chocolate! They are so in the will : )
And the capper to the day was that Pharmacist Greg, in honor of memememememeit'sallaboutme, made us lunch and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Does it get better than that? I think not!
The shortcake was nothing less than divine. Greg purchased shortcake that's made by a small local company called Little Rae's Bakery. They use all-natural ingredients so their products don't have that store bought taste or consistency.
One of my favorites from this little company is their ginger cookies--all moist and flavorful--and they're called Ginger Twinkle. Isn't that a delightful name? In fact, darling daughter--if you're reading this . . . and you should be . . . because, you know, it's all supportive of you to humor me in my silly hobby--don't you think Ginger Twinkle would be a perfect name for your baby girl?
Think it over. Talk to Dan about it. Get back to me.
On second thought, name her whatever you like, I'll just call her Ginger Twinkle anyway. And when she's old enough to wonder, she'll ask you, "Mama, why does Grammy call me Ginger Twinkle? Doesn't she know that's not my name?" And you'll answer, "Because Grammy is a crazy lady." And your sweet little one will ponder for a moment. She'll remember all the "eccentric" times she and her Grammy have had together. Then she'll look up at you and say in a knowing voice, "Ohhhhh. I get it."
But if you end up having a boy . . . hmmmm . . . how about . . . Ginger Twinkle?
