A Father’s Day Gift

My husband is not easy to find gifts for – as my children agree. However, I often find an acceptable present for him while roaming the shelves at my local bookstore. My husband now knows that I do this as he always guesses what my gift is (he is, of course, aided by the shape of the offering!). He guessed correctly on Sunday that I had bought him a bibliography – though he could not guess whose. He was happy to see that I offered him one on Bruce Lee – someone whom he has admired for years. The author did his research for 10 years and it looks like he was thorough.

My husband’s guesses made me smile. After being together so long, he definitely knows many of my choices. I think now he would be disappointed if I did not find an interesting book for him to read!

What has made you to smile during the last week?

A Dessert View

On Father’s Day it is always my intention to spoil my husband, a wonderful father, with the simple things that he enjoys: spending time with his family, eating a favourite meal, and enjoying a dessert that he does not often have. One thing he enjoys is whipped cream and this year for dessert I decided to make a cake (chocolate -the girls’ choice!) topped with freshly whipped cream and canned peaches. When taking a picture of this yummy dessert, I decided to place the painting my daughter had made as a Father’s day gift in the background. My aim was to focus on the dessert; but I ended up focusing on the painting.

The dessert is now long gone, but the painting is in view of everyone to enjoy.

What is your favourite dessert?
