Mother’s Day and Ducks


Mother’s Day Brunch.  I can’t rightly say that it is a tradition in our family.  However, for the last few years it has been.  We head off to Oakville and join people with boats, or relatives of people with boats and have Mother’s Day Brunch.  There were a number of beautiful people there, but since I don’t speak boat, I mostly kept to our table conversation.  The food was decent and everyone seemed happy.  My Mom seemed to appreciate it–and that is what really matters.

One of my work colleagues says that she celebrates Mother’s day on Saturday instead.  She claims that the restaurants are not full and the prices seem better.  I cannot say I fault her logic in this area.

I have included a picture of ducks because it is always nice to be reminded that we are not too removed from nature.

    We go out on Saturday, too. Long wait times and young kids are a sure fire way to make the day go south!

    We went out to a mothers day lunch yesterday, and waited two hours for our food. TWO HOURS!! I wish that were an exaggeration. Alas, the company was good!

      I am starting to think that my friend was right. Maybe celebrating a day early wouldn’t be too bad. I mean, my family celebrates Christmas on different days…..and we’ve moved Thanksgiving to better accommodate people.
      We will definitely have to change the venue next year, so maybe something can be done.
