My "pre-birthday" dinner was a classy affair in the midst of the rubble - ending with a FINE birthday cake from Dairy Queen.
Hey - we worked hard all day
we earned it
note my mom's antique goblet in the foreground
she was with us too
Meghan did a great job helping with the floors
she's a natural
Carrie worked in my studio
these are the old upper cabinets from the Church Ladies kitchen. I took off the doors and was going to paint them white - but I ran out of time and - who cares? I'm just going to fill every inch of them with junk anyway ........ yeah, but it's good junk!
grouting is messy!! - and now I feel guilty for all those times over the last 35 years that I made some guy use two different colors of grout........
of course I'll still do it.
It's my birthday and the rule is - I get to choose the activities for the whole day
WOOHOO - sun's out - let's GARDEN
okay - the weeds got away from me a bit - no, I'm not on my knees -
we'd had a big storm and some huge limbs broke off the tree ......my trimmer was no match for the branch........neither of them
I have never mowed a lawn....I'm working up to it. In the meantime we just whack down the stuff any way we can.
We are off to the big city to meet my brother Tim and sister(in-law) Gail for my birthday dinner.
