Sunshine and Family

“stay close to people who feel like sunshine”

Today, another day that when I woke up the sun was shining. These winter days have been so beautiful, I just want them to last. All week I have been thinking of my Grandmother Mama’s eggplant parmesan. She always made the most delicious meals. So, for dinner I make the eggplant parm, chicken cutlets, pasta, steamed vegetables, Ronnie’s garlic bread, and of course I made my pizza. All my children came over, except Aleksandra, it was her weekend on. My Sundays are always so much fun, I just wish my dad was still alive so he could continue enjoying them with us. He would have adored my granddaughters, I keep his memory alive by always talking about him. Sometimes I forget that the girls never met him, I think they have memorized all the stories. This Sunday, Nyla taught herself how to make balloon animals, what a great job she did, my dad would have been so entertained. She was so proud, she made each one of us one. Another great Sunday spent together with good food, great family, and a whole lot of fun.
