Not just Mother's Day; for me it's been Mother's week. Last Thursday, I got geraniums for Mother's Day--lots of them with four different colors of flowers. I planted them in pots, and now I have geraniums everywhere on my front and back porches, and even inside the house.
I thought that was my Mother's Day present and that was more than enough. I LOVE flowers and plants! Monday however, BJ did our weekly grocery shopping and brought home steaks for Mother's Day. Now that really got me excited! He grilled them for us yesterday. We had to have a good meal to go along with steaks so I made ranch roasted potatoes (a new recipe and so yummy), green beans, candied squash, and Focaccia flatbread.
We all enjoyed our Mother's Day meal, and I felt very loved by my hubby.
He was not done yet though. After supper, I opened a gift bag that he had brought out of hiding. Inside was the most beautiful kitembe.
In New Guinea, it is called a laplap. Here in Kenya, it is called a kitembe or a kanga. A kanga, however, has writing across the bottom of it, and this one doesn't, so it is a kitembe. In New Guinea and in Kenya, they are worn by ladies as a wrap-around skirt.
I love the deep blue color! It has African animals on it, and across the bottom are the colors of the Kenyan flag. So very beautiful. I am loved by a sweet man.
So I had a wonderful Mother's Day--a couple of days before Sunday, and a couple of days after Sunday. It has turned into a very special week for me.
