Well, finally got that "down time" that Eleni suggested, and enjoyed it. My mom, my sister-in-laws mom and her friend, and 2 of my mom's friends all went to see "The Butler". What a good movie, if you've not seen it, please try to, it's well worth it.
We're now planning on seeing "Mandela" and "12 Years A Slave", both true stories, and look so good. But that's later this year, I think.
Son is going to go see "Riddick" tonight, he loves those shows.
I hope you all have a great day, I went for my walk around 9am before it got horribly hot, and then took a shower, it felt soooo good.
Have a greet day, everyone, see you soon!

It finally rained, we needed it bad! I'm about ready to go out and take my walk...even though my entire body is sore from cleaning the daughter's house. (She's moving into an old farmhouse that had 40+ cats inside, and the people smoked a LOT, so we had to wash the wood walls in the room they're making the den. Talk about filthy water!!) We also taped so we could paint the walls....think we're doing that this week.
Next weekend is the wedding in Stevens Point our son is the Best Man in. Can't wait, he's nervous, but hey, maybe he'll meet a nice girl and be happier again! I keep praying for him, but he's so afraid to ask anyone out it's not funny. He's afraid they'll say no and doesn't understand that's life, we've all had someone tell us no! Oh well, God knows what He's doing!
Have a wonderful week, everyone! Time for my walk.

Our daughter said they weren't doing hay today (they were to load up all the hay in their old shed and move it to the newer one, that's a LOT of hay) so we won't be going over to help with that. They're also going to paint the walls before doing the floor, I hope that turns out well for them, I'm just afraid the sanding of the floor will get on the walls, but who knows.
I need to get out there and take my walk, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Rick and his cake. (homemade angel food cake, cut in half, crushed strawberries and whipped cream in the middle, and topped with whipped cream and a few more strawberries)

I was just thinking that between now and the end of October, we only have 2 weddings, 1-50th anniversary, 1 wedding reception (not part of the 2 weddings, my sister got married in Vegas and she's having her reception back in WI), and yesterday I get an invite to a baby shower on Oct. 19. I so don't want to go, but it's a cousin of mine; heck I didn't even know she was pregnant! I don't know her that well, I mean we're not close, but still.....
So add another thing we have to attend, not looking forward to it at all. Next weekend (not tomorrow), we go up to Stevens Point for the wedding our son is Best Man in. Then the following weekend we have my sisters reception, and the following one, a 50th anniversary near Boscobel. Then the first weekend in October (my birthday, we leave), our daughter and I head down to North Carolina! It's a weekend of birthdays because my nephew, Camden's, birthday is 10/2, my sisters (Cam's mom), is 10/3, and mine is 10/4, then my brother in law (sisters husband)'s is 10/9, and their other son's bday is 10/18. (Not to mention I have an aunt born the same year as myself on 10/1; her younger sister born 10/12) We have a lot of October Birthdays.
With any luck, next year we won't have a darn thing going on, and I can enjoy life again. *LOL*
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Today we celebrate 3 birthdays, my Husband, Rick; our niece, Breanne (who turns 18), and my cousin, Lenora, born on the same day and year as my husband.
It's going to be a fun day, we're taking Rick out to eat for his birthday, I finished the cake, but it doesnt' look as good as I thought it would. Oh well, as long as it tastes good.
I made an angel food cake, 2 small ones, put down one layer, put crushed strawberries in the center with a touch of whipped cream, then put the second layer of cake on and put colored whipped cream on top. I hope he likes it. We're going out to eat at Knute's tonight. It's funny, the owner of Knutes is Kerry Knutson...I have a cousin named Kerry Knutson (yep, same spelling) but they're not related. To have a guy, no, 2 guys with the name Kerry is unusual enough, but to have them both have the same last night...wow.
I hope you all have a fun filled day, I'll see you tomorrow!
