Happy Birthday

Friday, February 14, 2014

My grandson is turning one today. He had his first piece of birthday cake and thoroughly enjoyed it. This was a practice birthday cake because today is his birthday, but his real party is on Sunday.

    Ha~ Funny about the practice birthday cake. My daughter did it with her 1-year-old who didn't care about it either time. Ha! Maybe a less-sugar-addicted-generation????

Polar Bear Open

Saturday, February 01, 2014

Today my husband had to work at the Polar Bear Open. It is a golf tournament to benefit needy children and single parents. He asked me to come take some pictures, but I got there too late to get pictures of the golfers. I was put to work cleaning the carts (great exercise) and quickly found out that all the carts were fueled by alcohol. I threw away many half filled coffee cups, but not one single half filled beer can. It was fun to help out. There was plenty of snow still on the ground, but the air temps were in the 40's.

    Coffee gets cold, but beer doesn't get warm at 40 degrees.

Back from vacation.

Friday, January 03, 2014

I have to say the temptation to overeat on vacation is lessened by the temptation to walk the beach and pick up shells and coral. Here are some of the more beautiful pieces picked on the beautiful shores of Pompano Beach, just north of Miami. A lighthouse down the beach, but unfortunately on the other side of the channel was also a favorite walking spot.

The lighthouse is just over my husband's shoulder.

    I'm glad you had a good vacation. We're on the west coast, so it's a little cooler here in the winter and warmer in the summer, but still a year round vacation.

Happy Halloween

Thursday, October 31, 2013

A terrible night for trick or treating, but with the time moved up to 5:30 to 7:00 pm, it was mostly light out for the kids. It was pouring down rain and a strong wind. It will get worse as the night goes on. I had candy for 124 kids but decided to double up. Turns out we needed more candy as about 100 kids showed up. We raided my grandson's candy stash and were able to finish out the night. Here are my 2 favorite trick or treaters Batman, Donovan and Robin, Davis.
I hope everyone avoids the temptation. No candy left, so no temptations here.

    We had way too much stuff as very few kids showed up. Fortunately for me, my wife ate all the left over candy in a couple of days. After three days I wanted a couple of the candy bars, asked, and found out that she had eaten the entire lot. What a relief.

    emoticon Great to have no loaded treat-buckets lurking about as temptation!
The kids looked great! The weather was cold and pouring rain here, too; felt bad for the kids; they do look forward to gallavanting about in those costumes!!

Hope all's well with you!

Oops, I missed the picture of the new dining room.

Sunday, September 29, 2013

This is the new dining room that runs into the kitchen. The faux fire place that has been in the family since the 1930's got a much needed updating.
