My Fantastic Mother's Day

This is coming a little late, but I have to talk about my fantastic Mother's Day. I fed the kids at the pancake breakfast after church, and then had a lobster feast on my deck with the BD (Baby Daddy) and my father-in-law. FIL had brought over five two pound lobsters, potato salad and bread. Then he did the dishes and cleaned my van while BD and I went for a lovely long ride on the motorcycle.

In the evening I made supper for my mom and dad, my godmother, and my brother and sister-in-law and the kids. A little crazy, but very pleasant. We had lobster again plus gluten-free chocolate cake (courtesy my mom) and a gluten-free lemon dessert I made. Yum!

Of course, all of this was planned in advance. What I totally was not expecting was a kobo eReader from BD and the kids! For someone like me, who would spend every waking moment reading if that were possible, a Kobo is the perfect gift.

I am going to get a nice cover for it so I can keep it with me without worrying that it will get damaged in my purse. How about this leather cover?

It also comes pre-loaded with 100 classics. Right now I am reading Jane Austen's Emma. I love Jane Austen, but somehow I never got around to reading Emma before, and I am loving it.

Update: Popped by Indigo today and picked up this in pink.

There was a great selection in-store, but they are also available online. (I also picked up a new Jillian Michaels' DVD, but more about that later.)
