A quiet night in with Mom

A rare treat.  Shhh, can you hear it?    Me neither.....its quiet!  No company, no chores, no work, no Auntie and/or her friends chattering away in my ear for hours on end.  Its just me and Mom all settled in for a lovely quiet evening alone.

Tonight Auntie and her gal pals have all gone out to a local Dinner Theatre.  It was always a family tradition.  We gathered up a gang of gals and went together.  Last time we all went it was evident that it was just to busy, confusing and structured for Mom.  She didn't understand she couldn't roam around or talk out loud etc.  So for the past 2 years I have stayed home with her while the rest all went. 

I don't think they all realize what a treat it is for me. I almost never get a little quiet time at the house (or Grand Central Station as I like to call it).  

In fact, I think this might be time to open that bottle of wine I got from my last visit to Corinne's house.
Sounds good to me!


  1. Ahhh! so glad that yo are having a quiet evening with just your mom. Enjoy your wine and relax. Funny thing that I just opened my overflow bottle of Gewztr... for supper too just a few minutes ago... It was as smooth as silk and it was only bottled on Tuesday.

    I'm ready for bed and I'm yawning already and it's only 7:13pm. JB.

  2. Sit back , relax and enjoy that wine. You deserve it.

  3. There is nothing like a good glass of wine to relax with. Enjoy yours!!!!

  4. How sweet enjoy your evening with your mom!!

  5. Glad to see you are relaxing and enjoying the quiet evening! I'm having a milkshake for supper here and trying not to think about food! Thanks for your encouragement on my blog post today Kim! I'll have to try some mashed potatoes for lunch tomorrow!
