I've spent the day doing mum things.
Biggie's whole grade was at the local pools for an hour of swimming this morning so we went to watch. I was pretty late but I got to see Biggie swimming at least 10 meters. He took a short course last year and learned to swim. I am pleased he hasn't forgotten what he learned. He saw us there and I know he was happy since I hadn't mentioned that I was planning to go.
Little Guy and I treated ourselves to pancakes for lunch. He really loves doing the mixing. He's been indoctrinated into the joys of lemon juice and sugar on pancakes, YUM!
I always think of my sister Sally when I have pancakes, especially with fresh lemon juice. When we were kids we had to duck though a hole in our hedge to pick lemons from our back neighbor's. We had a standing agreement that we could help ourselves anytime and we certainly did. Their tree was so old it had lemons on it almost year round as far as I can recall. I wish they were still my neighbors - I pay about $2 for two tiny lemons these days and they are a kind of luxury. Next on my garden shopping list is a lemon tree.
