MumDay

HiYa, Ducky here. We had a mum day today!! Bonus. She didn't go to work again today and won't on Friday either. Mum says she is burning off her last few days off before the end of the year.

So she didn't stay home all day. She did some stuff in the morning, including getting all recertified so she can continue to drive the metal monster. She is all renewed for another 8 years.

When she got home, she made herself some lunch with a turkey sandwich and we got to sample some of the turkey. Still some turkey left so we can get special treats for a few more days.

Then mum got bizzy, bizzy, bizzy. She hauled out all this stuff from hiding in the cupboards and started making this stuff. I watched some, but since it wasn't something I could eat I didn't hang around. Mum says she was making a human treat called peanut brittle.

Derby hung around and he got yelled at. Mum caught him licking the pan that gets all buttered.
Mum even got efficient, she had two sheets so she could cook the stuff and dump it out to cool, then clean the cooking pan and do another batch. She got 6 batches done in a little more than three hours. That is doing good mum.
Plus in between when she had to wait, she worked on the Christmouse cards. Derby checking things out.
All stacked up, cards signed, notes written, mailing and return addresses on, stamps on. Just need their holiday stickers on the back, then they are ready to go. Good job mum.
I just stayed out of her way today. Figured that was the best help I could be. Happy weekend all.

She's a great mom for getting stuff done! We love that picture of Ducky licking the buttered pan!

Derby is so industrious. When we see him licking that pan, we feel envy!

A mom day means she needs to spend it with you, not get all busy and stuff. Oh well, if you've still got another, and then the weekend, maybe there's hope that she'll slow down!

Wow! Your Mom really gets things done! Mine is too lazy to do all that. Kudos to Derby for getting a lick of the buttered pan.

Man...when a working person has a day off it should be spent sitting and making a lap for the kitties! Right?

And yeah, I hope that's not Thanksgiving turkey...

It sounds like your human was working pretty hard, even it is wasn't at the "work" place! You'd think with a day off like that, she would be standing ready to jump to your every need instead of cooking and taking care of stuff.

Wow. It sounds like it was probably a very busy day for you all too. I think humans should slow down and stop being so busy!

Mum days are good days, but it sounds like she was very busy. Our cards arrived from the printers yesterday so our mum was busy all night writing them out.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Wow, your mom sure was productive! Sometimes our mom is too and it's kinda scary to watch her tear around the house. LOL.

Happy weekend to you all!
