Birthday Bash

Today is the old boy's birthday. He's celebrating this morning by turning out the equines and now going to pick up grain and water softener salt. The excitement may be too much for him! We will be heading to North Minneapolis for lunch with the son and his wife. That will be a nice change from the daily routine. Someone else will be doing the cooking, another nice change.

I had no photo of Thanksgiving, so ta-da.....yesterday's post Thanksgiving lunch, in all its starchy-ness!

We are on a weather rollercoaster at the moment. We're supposed to have a high of 51 F today. Most of the snow has melted, but more is to come on Tuesday, when we get back to more seasonable weather. The pellet stove is working and keeping half of the house warm on low setting. I feel happy to have finally got it fixed. I cannot even say why I let it go for years. But, it is fixed now.

I guess I should prepare myself for an afternoon of peopling. As a naturally reclusive person who has been living in a cocoon for a couple of years it is hard work peopling! Whew.

Are you thinking of ways to get a little break from the people now and then? Enjoy the time as much as you can.

It would certainly have been nice of me to wish Mark a happy birthday, once he gets done with the horses! Happy birthday, Mark, and many more.

You can't beat the heat you get from a stove. Hope your visit with your son gives you great pleasure, loaded with good food prepared by a chef. And a Big Happy Birthday to Mark!

Boud, it's only two other people and a Yorkie, so I handle that fine. I just feel wore out when I get home, which I now am. Mark had a good birthday and a delicious meal of steak with beurre rouge, roasted potatoes and an excellent spinach salad. Then Dutch Apple pie!

Lori, they do throw off the heat! We had a very pleasant time, the food was fantastic and I got to hold Homer and see Murphy the cat. A good afternoon.
