Christmas with Mom

Good morning.
Yesterday after I got Craig up, I made us coffee, and we were off to Muskegon to see my Mom. This was to be my Christmas with her, as on Christmas day, she'll be spending it with one of my brothers in Holland. We arrived there a little before 10am. Did a few chores for her, cut her hair, and then it was to Braunn's for lunch. We haven't been to a Braunn's before and thought we'd try it.  It's quite a large restaurant with a bar/lounge area and a dining area. All the walls have video screens along the top. Must of been a hundred screens. Well, maybe not a hundred, but a lot! There were even small screens at every table, although they were for lotto games like keno. We didn't play any. We all ordered their signature dish, the sizzling steaks. Mom had a 6 oz. sirloin, and Craig and I had the 8oz.  I had steamed broccoli and a baked potato, Craig had his with fires and broccoli cheddar soup, and Mom had just a baked potato with hers. The steaks were moist and tender with just the right amount of seasonings.
After lunch, it was off to the club. (the VFW) It was fairly busy and we got a table for 5 as my brother Brian and his wife Ruth were to meet us there. They arrived shortly after us, and we had a nice afternoon visit. Then it was time to take Mom back to her apartment, with a stop first at the store to pick up a list of things she needed.
Back at the apartment, we said our goodbyes and headed back to Lansing. We arrived safe as the roads were nice and dry.
Today of course, is our usual running to the bank, P.O. and groceries. And right now, I've got to put in an internet order for Salon supplies, so see ya!

  1. Glad to hear yesterday went well. Sounds like Braunn's is a sports restaurant. Like, for games. Never heard of a place with so many TV's!
    We love Applebee's Broccoli Cheese soup. :)
    Enjoy your day off!
