Mother's Day 2020

It is an odd time. The pandemic and the resulting shelter in place orders have disrupted several plans. We should be going to Georgetown this coming week for Jack's graduation from college and then on to South Africa on vacation. The disarray and uncertainty are creating an increasing number of strains.

After a short morning walk with Tiber (it was chilly), I cooked Sharon breakfast. I made an asparagus, tomato and bacon omelette.

We have a roomba that we use downstairs; it is very effective. Sharon wanted to supplement this by getting a robot mop for Mother's Day. After doing some research, we punted on the idea. None of the robot mops seemed very effective. Instead, She settled on wanting a Bissel Crosswave. It was delivered on Sunday morning just as we were finishing breakfast.

In the afternoon, I went to OBO' to pick up a Beet Salad [pistachio, basil, parmesan, balsamic] and an Elderflower Gimlet [vodka, st-germain, elderflower syrup, lime, mint]. For dinner, Sharon picked out a veal piccata recipe. We went to Corti Bros on Saturday morning to get the veal. I made the veal piccata with angel hair pasta and green beans. In spite of my trepidation during the preparation, the meal seemed to be a big hit with both Jack and Sharon.

We finished the day watching two more episodes of season eight of Survivor.
