Charles and I were married in August and every birthday, Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, etc. he’d make me the most wonderful cards.
But balloons are nice too...
And there’s always lots of LOVE….
Amy brought over two exquisite bouquets for our anniversary and Laurie Pie delighted in them. Thank you dear Amy for always remembering!
To celebrate, Kita gets a bath. She loves Liz from ‘Must Love Dogs’ mobil grooming and willingly gets into the rubby dubby dub tub!
Well, I thought I had one little project but when Jimmy showed up with his crew he found LOTS of STUFF to do!
Before I could blink they were all over the place….
I think we’re varnishing the beam. Didn’t know it needed it….However, all the railings and doors did.
The last fellow made such a mess of the Bamboo that we had to start all over…..
I’m so happy with the beautiful blue pots on the patio and the fruit trees that are now in them!
The piece de resistance was getting a new deck after the last fellow had destroyed the old one.
O.K., let’s party on Garth. Time for Nikka’s birthday. She has one more present coming on September 17th.
If these two aren’t the ‘made in heaven’ couple I don’t know who is. Herm and Lulu celebrating their second wedding anniversary. They are so cute together!
Let’s hear it for the cake!!!
Even better, lets here it for the Champagne!
I guess Kita was really distraught she wasn’t invited to the party so she left me a message loud and clear. 'Leave me and I’m goin’ for the money!'
But wait…there’s one more birthday. Melissa, Sandie Girl’s amazing daughter-in-law and awesome mom to Jacob and Noah. Sandie and Jacob made this adorable cake & beach scene.
Happy, happy Birthday Melissa!
Adorable Noah and Jacob AKA Jakey!
These shrimp Sandie made were so incredibly good I went straight to Bristol Farms to get some.
What’s going on? Why a Hatch Chile celebration straight from New Mexico….that’s what! The season is short so one must have all things Hatch when it arrives.
So it’s true….summer is over ‘cause Memorial Day not only heralds fall but on the plus side….grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon, bacon, bacon!
With beautiful watermelon.
Now this was one of the most amazing sights I’ve ever encountered. I was in my car and as I drove, tried to capture what I saw but the image was in reverse. Actually the sun was a red ball of fire. ‘Goodness, gracious, red balls of fire!’ I’ve never seen that before. Have you?
No matter how I tried, I couldn’t capture the total redness. It just kept turning gold.
I wish you amazing sights, glorious day filled with wonder.
