Charcuterie Board and Coincidences

Thanks to Covid restrictions I had not seen my brother in over a year even though he only lives an hour or so from me.

Recently he dropped by with a (belated) 60th birthday present for me that he crafted with his own hands. And tools of course. This beautiful charcuterie board is made from a slab of mesquite he picked up on a (pre-Covid) annual trek to Texas.

The charcutetie board has a lazy susan feature attached to the back so the board can be spun around to access assorted nibbles.

He also filled in crevices with sparkly, metallic paint…very artistic and creative.

Coincidences

Apparently a bee landed on the charcuterie board while the shellac was drying. My soon to be sister-in-law convinced him to leave the bee imprint there in honour of my blog and Facebook names…Loreeebee and Loree Bee…

A larger coincidence is the fact that my brother showed up with this belated gift the same day my sons had planned a surprise belated Birthday celebration catered dinner for me.

Another coincidence? The date of the party and my brother’s visit were on the 27th anniversary of my mom’s passing.

The sudden loss of my mom just after her 65th birthday was a huge shock for me and I’ve often said I felt like an Orphan after my father passed away not much later.

I always reminisce (more than usual) on the day she died; I know she was smiling down on me that day!
