I don’t know how many of you guys put a big emphasis on family dinners, but here at The Little Cottage, we try to make a habit of it. There is something so centering about all of us gathering around the table, talking about our successes and failures, eating homemade, mostly nutritious food, and basically remembering how much we love one another.
Except for when the Critter and Varmint are fighting.
And except for when either Critter or Varmint gets in trouble for poor manners.
And except for when Mama is in a foul mood.
And except for when My Captain isn’t there because he’s working overtime.
But other than that, we are basically remembering how much we love one another.
Sometimes we’ll have Grandma Jane over, or sometimes her Mike, or sometimes maybe Goggy and Papa. But the a couple of nights ago, we were visited by a newcomer:
He didn’t say much, but he did hog most of the avocado slices in ginger dressing.
And he didn’t eat all of his beef and cabbage.
And he drank his apple juice out of a snifter.
And frankly, I hope he comes around again soon, because he’s a hottie, man!
