Social Butterflies

Let's see--Friday Mom and I spent the day cooking and cleaning. We had friends Jeane and Steve and Terry and Jill coming for dinner. Pork tenderloin, roasted veggies, the best grilled pineapple, marinated in rum and brown sugar, and homemade sponge cake with strawberries for dessert. It was fun as usual to visit with these friends. When Jeane and Steve arrived they told us we had a nesting Sandhill Crane down our driveway and they had a photo to prove it. Sure enough, there she is in this photo--she blends in so well with her surroundings which I suppose is a good thing!
Michael worked at his son's ranch on Friday and also went up to the Whispering Pines neighborhood to fix a water heater for friends. He took the VW bug, I snapped a photo of him as he came down our hill, he looks cute driving it. The VW still needs some carburetor work.
Saturday Michael went to his son's to help with branding. I stayed home and finished a quilt and cooked a little, making Jazzy some homemade dog food. Mom left early Saturday morning headed to Yellowstone Park for her summer job. She called this afternoon to tell us she thought it would be a great experience.
In the evening on Saturday we joined friends Boo, Terry and Claire for dinner at the Rib and Chop House in Livingston. We hadn't seen Boo and Terry since we all returned from our winter travels. Dinner was delicious and so was the conversation!
Today we traveled in to Nat's to give him his birthday present, a day of yard work. Michael's Dad is 87 years old today and going strong. Lonnie, Michael's son and his wife LoraLee met us there and we all spent the day building fence, weed whacking, and spraying weeds. We cooked hamburgers on the grill for lunch.
So, you see, we have been social butterflies all weekend and we are a little on the exhausted side! Jazzy ate dog food (as opposed to people food) last night for the first time in two weeks. She ate dog food again today. She seems to be feeling better although still not much energy. We too feel better because she feels better!

  1. Happy Birthday to Nat! I'm so happy to learn that Jazz is feeling better, hope that trend continues. Awesome sandhill!

    We'll bring you a jar of salsa when we get to Montana, for sure. Watch the blog for the recipe for the cake, I'll post it.

    Take care,
