How do you want your eggs he says
while turning the hash browns he has
added cut up turkey sausage to?
I reply, any way you want to fix it,
I only want one. He insists I choose,
so I say, okay 'over easy' then.
The egg sticks to his too hot skillet
and becomes broken and then begins
to resemble scrambled.
I try not to laugh and reassure,
it doesn’t matter at all.
After a heavy slathering of mustard
I dine like a pajamaed queen!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that my
Husband had an angiogram and his arteries are
not blocked so the doctors feel heart surgery 
is too risky to remove his aneurysm so he will
just live with it and we hope it doesn’t grow
larger. Thank you all for your prayers. We are both
relieved that he won’t be having heart surgery.

    Connie; It is nice to have your husband cook breakfast for you, no matter how it comes out. I am glad that he don't need the heart surgery. I've had all kind of things done to my heart, but I'm still breathing... Blessings... Lucilla

    He loves to cook. It took me five years after we got married to just give the kitchen over to him. I am not that fond of cooking so it is wonderful being married to someone who enjoys it. Glad you are doing okay. I appreciate the encouragement. We all have some kind of health problems as age creeps up. Blessings, Connie

    I love sausages in the morning myself but do not eat them very often. Nice portrait of a domestic scene. Best of health to you and your family. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    I like the breakfast thing. My husband was a good cook. He would always fix dinner for me. Sorry to hear of your husband. I myself had opened heart surgery and about 3 heart attacks. Now they just put in a pacemaker. My prayers for your husband, may he stay healthy... Lucilla

    Thank you for an early (or late!?) breakfast, Connie! Nobody likes surgery, especially related to the heart, so you must both be feeling better now that it's not needed. Take care....both of you:) // paul
