My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Mom’s Lunch

lunchbox Blog Prompt - Today is Pack Your Mom's Lunch Day. What would you pack in your mom's lunch box for her?

I don’t ever remember my mother eating lunch. In fact I don’t remember her eating much of anything outside of dinner. She loved her coffee though. I do remember her wanting a potato knish when we were out shopping. I also remember late at night she would ask my father to stop and get her a sandwich at the diner on the way home from work. She loved to eat pastrami on rye. So if I packed her lunch, this is what I would include: a pastrami sandwich on rye bread, a potato knish, and a thermos of coffee.

I don't know what a knish is. Will have to look that up. My mom would also love a thermos of coffee. She drinks a lot of it for sure.

Ooooh, I know! She gets Peppermint Tea, Spaghetti Bolognaise, truckloads of Ready Salted Walkers crisps and a homemade strawberry crumble. Aw, and german Jellybabies. And watered- down coffee. And, neatly folded and hidden underneath the crisps, a letter telling her how much I love her and how much I am a part of her and she is a part of me. Miss you, Mom, not long to go and we'll have some lion time again!!!
Love this blog prompt, cant wait to see my Mum again. It's been a year, that's too much.
