Spectacular turnout for MIL's birthday

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

We estimated that we had about 250 people
for the birthday party and that was counting all the
family members. I had no time to take pictures but
it was a huge success. We had enough food but
not so much that we needed to ship stuff home as
leftovers. Maybe 25 pieces of cake left and a few
cookies. So happy not to have to deal with excess.
We spent extra time with DH's uncles and aunts as
the years keep rolling on and their ability to travel is
tested by aches, pains and physical challenges. Long
trips are exhausting.
I am spending more time at work, less on SP and do
miss my friends here. The garden needs attention and
soon I will either have to can tomatoes or pray someone
else needs them more. Where did summer go?
Have a fine and fantastic Wednesday! HUGS!

    I'm glad that the party went well, sounds nice.
    This summer seemed to be a short one for me as well and I didn't have half the excitement that you did. Good luck with the tomato crop! emoticon
