I’m not really feeling much older but maybe a bit wiser!
So now after our huge weekend we’re just pooped
and relaxing – and I had time to revamp my Blog –
not sure if I like it because there are some areas
I don’t know how to change – tried but need help.
I can’t get the header to center…any ideas what to do?
This was a very full birthday weekend to say
the least…we haven’t been home much
at all since early Friday morning.
We left here to head to Janesville on Friday to pick up
a few needed items at some of the big box stores which
we do not have close to us…it’s always a jaunt
if we need anything major.
After shopping most of the morning and through
lunch time we ate lunch at Red Robin.
We only had appetizers and walked out of there after
paying a $24+ tab! Yikes…
But it was good!!
We then called my brother to see if they were
going to be at my aunts place
because we wanted to visit her and thought it would
be nice if we all were there at the same time.
As it was he was just on his way there to
visit her so our timing was great.
Well, as usual she had made a dessert and
offered us some – trying to be
nice guests we naturally said YES, thank you!!!!
It was just carrot cake but very, very good.
Headed back home in time to do a couple chores
and decided we just weren’t hungry so had a pizza and
chips…sometimes that’s our ‘don’t know what to have’
meal but it works.
So on to Saturday – we got up early to walk
so we could beat the heat but it beat us…very warm
at 7 a.m. and got humid very fast…the walk
was an hour and I was beat by the time we got
home but cleaned up and headed out to
Menards for some lawn materials and then
I got kind of a dizzy feeling and a bit sickish
feeling too – I know it was the heat and also not
having anything to eat so we went to George Webb’s
for breakfast – only ate half my meal but it did help.
On to home, did some cleaning, laundry and then got
ready to head to Janesville to go out to eat
with my brother/wife and my sister.
A great meal was had as usual and the company
I couldn’t ask for better…my siblings are my best friends!
They sky was horrid when we headed out and
fortunately we pushed all the screen room furniture into
the center anticipating a good rain – and sure enough –
as we headed back into town around 9 p.m.
we saw branches, twigs, leaves and other items strewn
everywhere…there was a huge storm that went through shortly
after we left with wind, rain and then tons of hail…even when
we got home there were piles of it on our porches
in the corners and a couple of our tomato plants were
battered as well as the plants in the garden.
The man next door said he never gets concerned
in a storm but this one was huge
and the hail came so fast and thick.
Glad I wasn’t here.
Here’s what the sky looked like as we were leaving
doesn’t look too scary but it was only 4 p.m.
Lots of lightening in the light cloud
Then today (Sunday) our middle son held a brunch
at his home for my birthday with all our family –
it just keeps going and going!
He made bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, toast,
fruit and the most wonderful new red potatoes he fried
with onions/green peppers/garlic cloves and
seasoned with ‘Famous Dave’s’ seasoning.
I’m wanting more!
Oh and a wonderful fruit tart with ice cream
for dessert – perfect!
I took over fixins’ for Mimosa’s –
oh I have a headache right now!
So that’s my weekend.
So now that I bored you with all this chatter –
here are just a couple photos from today…
wish I had some decorating photos but
haven’t purchased anything or tweaked anything lately.
Husband was in charge of the camera both days
so we don’t have many interesting photos!
He doesn’t like to take pictures
Today at Brunch
Thanks so all my family for a wonderful birthday weekend
I needed it more than you know.
