Jim’s mom is so “gift considerate”. She always seems to pick out things we’ve mentioned, hinted on, or she knows for a fact that we like. For example, we LOVE her oatmeal raisin cookies and peanut butter cookies. She gave us each a Christmas pail filled with the recipe, and dry ingredients premeasured. We made these shortly after Christmas…
She also gave us a bird seed wreath. She knows we love the wildlife but we didn’t even have a feeder. Just while she was here, we counted 8 beautiful male Cardinals in the backyard at one time. We hung up the wreath, the birds never found it before it melted in the rain a week later. The seed was on the ground though so they’ve been enjoying it that way. We decided to buy a cheap feeder and bird seed while grocery shopping Saturday. We’re gonna give this a try.
Restaurant Week is approaching and we have made reservations for 3 restaurants. Stay tuned at the end of the month while Jim and I eat like royalty for 3 days.
Speaking of food, on Saturday, Jim and I went to Five Guys Burgers and Fries for dinner. We love their burgers and never have issues there until now. Nothing major, just stupidity I guess. I order then Jim orders. 2 different orders. One with tomatoes and bacon, one with mushrooms and onions. We end up with 2 of my burgers. It’s 9pm and we are the only ones there. How hard can it be? Jim brings it up to the counter with the receipt. They tell him that I have his burger. He assures them that I have bacon, tomato and mayo as ordered. They say they’ll fix it and we sit down. It takes forever. I guess they decided to make the whole thing over. He would have been happy with them removing the tomato and bacon and adding the onions and mushrooms. I finished my burger and she comes out with his. It’s the same exact combination AGAIN. I wanted to ask her in a wonderfully condescending tone, “what’s wrong with you?” but she was a sweet girl, apparently just a space cadet. Jim calls her back and she apologizes and is ready to take the burger. Jim says, can I just get the grilled mushrooms and onions and I’ll add it to my burger? Wowsers.
I found a few photos I had taken the other day but forgot to post (I posted them on Facebook):
