What to Give

I showed here the card Marguerite made for my mom. Now, I show you the card she made for Mark’s mom. Actually, cards. After she was done with one, she was still in the mood to draw, so she made a second one. Here are pictures. I’m not sure if we’ll be mailing these to Zurich where my mother-in-law is or just wait for her to come home. 


Now, we have Father’s Day to craft for, lol. It’s so hard to think of gifts for men. Mark got me a cake for Mother’s Day. Marguerite raided the thing for cherries before we could get our slices, the little cherry bandit! I guess I could get him a cake too, but that would be just like we’re exchanging cakes, lol. Of course, I could get him socks and underwear, which he could always use, but, you know, I already give him those for his birthday and Christmas (hehe). Well, I’ll get him something. It was very different, of course, when we were still dating. I think I got him some interesting stuff then. I had more energy to bother about imaginative gifts, lol. One time, I even got him a remote control car. It should be knocking about in a box somewhere in storage. I told him he should get it out so he and Marguerite could play with it. We could Buy cheap RC Cars, have a whole fleet of them. I, for one, was never interested in such a toy, which reminds me, Mark was telling Marguerite about Superbook and Flying House (those Bible-based cartoons from the ‘80s) and he asked me if I didn’t watch them. I said I did when I had nothing better to do, and that I wasn’t particularly inclined to watch cartoons as a child. I guess I was just born weird.

You could go for handmade coupons for a couple of his favorite meals.
