Mashed potatoes and gravy

Mashed potatoes and Meatloaf.  Last night, Maverick peeled potatoes, as I sliced them in to the boiling water.  Comfort hugged us.  We had a normal night.  Maverick finished his homework; Ally and Maverick happily put a puzzle together; we picked up our van after a flat tire.  Everything fell into place.  Ally still has an imaginary Mason where ever she goes.  Even though this really irritates Maverick, he has learned to accept her pretend play.
Maverick is excited to make more Wiscurzoos, he even has an idea for wee wee Wiscurzoos. I am so proud of his creativity and confidence.
It was a good night; maybe it was the brown gravy on the mashed potatoes, maybe the Earth was tilted just right?  An extra ounce of happiness has settled in.  I wish everyone the same.  Here's a scoop of mashed potatoes and gravy for you; may it add a smile to your day!  (or a rumble to your tummy)

Nothing better than home cooked comfort food! It does look yummy and I am working so hard to lose weight before the holidays set in! Thank you for the sweet posting. Your words did make me smile. :)

I thought of Mason yesterday as I heard the news of the beautiful animals being let loose from an exotic zoo setting in a small Ohio community. Mason would be troubled by the need to kill these animals through no fault of their own. I am sure he was first in line to greet them into his beautiful heaven, too!
