Happy Birthday, Michael

A cold windy day for Michael's birthday. We took a walk then he loaded up the trailer with equipment and pipe and headed for his son's to work today.

I started the "Quilt for a Hour" project and I think those other ladies from Judy's blog must be faster sewers than me--I was supposed to get 60 1/2 square triangles done in that hour and I got 30 of them done--guess I will play catch up tomorrow! I will have lots more time for sewing then.

When we were in Livingston on Saturday, I bought Michael a down vest--he is probably the most cold natured man on earth and wears a vest even on most summer mornings. Well, when I gave it to him this morning, it was too small and I had forgotten a couple of things for the birthday dinner tonight, so I made a flying trip over to Livingston just before lunch time. (See, I didn't have much time for sewing today.)

Spent the rest of the afternoon cooking for the birthday dinner. I had planned steaks on the grill, my family famous garlic mashed potatoes and the poppy seed dressing/mandarin orange salad everyone loves. Our daughter-in-law LoraLee is having some very extensive dental work done and is currently on a soft food diet. So, I made my corn pudding and a jello salad so she would have something to eat other than mashed potatoes. Michael had requested a lemon pie for dessert and because I thought the sour of the lemon pie might be too much for LoraLee, I alos made pumpkin pies.

Nat joined us and it was a wonderful evening.
