a friend, my son, our dear friend who brought all the goodies, and Mama
On Tuesday my son worked through the day and on through the night so that he could take off the whole day for our birthdays. I was pretty sure he'd be exhausted, and I think he was, but he was definitely the hero of the day. He came in with his gift to granny... he'd shaved off his beard which she had never liked. She thought that was so funny, and I couldn't get enough looks at his "baby" face again. He looks so much younger.
in the lavendar is my sister/cousin with her two daughters and granddaughter.
We were having a big laugh!
We had lovely company, family, friends. Breakfast time with my sister/cousin and her kiddos and the rest of the day with friends. Delicious food prepared by our wonderful caterer friend who would not take a penny for it. We had pretty banana cupcakes, cherry crisp from her tree in the yard, and delectable little potato chip cookies which were a flaky, salty/sweet concoction to die for. I made a strawberry lemonade cake, a red velvet cake, chips/crackers, dips, and snacks.... and more and more brownies.
Today has been quiet and happy, a big rainstorm this morning washing the yard and plants. I cannot wait for our first tomatoes from the big green plants at the end of the ramp. It was my birthday, too, so the joy was doubled.
On this last day of June, enjoy the sunlight and the rain. Have a happy 4th of July!
Whimsy and Hugs!
