Give Granny three days off and she'll try to take a month....really! No, I promise I won't stay away that long, but sometimes it's hard to get back into the blogging mood when one is away from it for a few days. Today I have so much to share with you, I'll break it down into two posts, family and garden.
Sunday was Mr. Granny's 77th. birthday, so I had the family here for dinner. Our youngest daughter quipped that her father was so old, they dedicated a religious holiday to him!
There were 16 of us consuming a dinner of baked ham, scalloped potatoes, baked beans, tossed salad, pasta salad, Alicyn's special deviled Easter eggs, birthday cake and ice cream.
The weather was warm and sunny so the two little ones, Remington and Alicyn, played outside all day. At one point, both of them had to be retrieved from the garden manure pile, where they were happily shoveling it into the buckets.
The teenagers always seem to disappear to a bedroom or the TV room, only to reappear when food is served.
At the end of the day, I was tired but happy. I swear I didn't touch a drop of that booze on the counter, I just look loopy! And my kitchen isn't yellow :-)
