Dear me, I think I have did the same thing once upon a time. So glad you are here again, Caroline!
Cate, thanks for the welcome back. You did the same thing? Did you order out for pizza? Probably not in your neck of the woods.
oh no….i don’t know whether to laugh or cry!! pizza is always a good save
Well, it was definitely a good laugh around the table. Thanks Sue.
My favorite frame is the first one, with you and the giant calculator because you look a bit stunned and overwhelmed by the number, meanwhile, your mother seemed to take it all in stride. Nice post.
Hah! I didn’t even notice that juxtaposition. Thanks Janette.
I especially love her alternate activities: writing short stories, having breakfast with Joe in the canoe, and training for a marathon. That really was Sally!
Thanks Kristin. I wasn’t sure that I got that right.
Your mum sounds like an interesting person – how wonderful to have breakfast in a canoe.
Thanks Maya. Yes, she was one of a kind.
The chicken and vegetables and herbal greenery would still have been very savory and yumm! But I admit you’d have had to spit out the crunchy bits.
Hi Margaret! I don’t know if she saved the stuff in the colander…
Hi Carolyn…Your posts are always worth the wait. I love your Mother. A free spirit. I have almost done that myself. Balisha
Wonderful post! That made me laugh! I’m glad your mom was a good sport about it and I hope she laughed, too.
You captured the essence of Sally so well — down to the running shoes while she was typing! Loved it! Dave
That was so cute! First time I have been here, I’ll be back!
What a charming blog, Caroline! I love the colors and funny little moments you draw about. You seem to have a knack for pulling out the magic in everyday life experiences. Can’t wait to see what you’ll draw next!
I am so glad to see you are back at the blog! Sorry it took me so long to visit and see this delightful post. I love the frame with Sally realizing her mistake — it is so expressive! Your stories and drawings capture so much personality. I envy your ability to remember the little events of life and make them so memorable.
Thank you Barbara. Your comments made my day!
I am so very happy that you have decided to continue writing! I have been very irregular in the past few months with my blog, but that will be a thing of the past! Hope you still remember me
Welcome back! Yeah, my greeting is kinda late, but better late than never…
I like the way your rendered your mother’s reaction after she strained the soup…
And I wonder how liberating it would be to have breakfast in a canoe, in the middle of a lake, a swamp or a calm stream….
