A Birthday

I have two grandsons and today the older one turned 18. Here he is with his sweet Mom. They came for a pizza supper and we had cake but the only candle that could be found was a Scooby Doo candle.

 Not much is happening around here. The weather continues to be lovely and I sit outside a lot. Any gardening is still a bit hard to do because I'm stiff and sore but each day I feel a bit better.
I've begun the job of taking down and washing  all my tea cups that are not behind closed cupboard doors. It's a big job. When I say taking down I mean someone else takes them down and later puts them back. I'm no longer trusted on chairs ( I wonder why not?)

What is keeping you busy these days?  It's always nice to know what others are up to.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Belated Birthday wishes to your Grandson. I am keeping busy with my preparations for the Winter preserving/pickling and stocking the freezer.

  2. Your grandson looks like a fine young man. Hope he had a terrific day.

  3. Thank you for sharing. Happy belated birthday to your grandson. He looks handsome and lovely.
    Very hot here and I don't even think of going out to see the yard!

  4. Happy Birthday to your handsome grandson.
    Glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better and staying off the chairs :). It sounds like you are still being very productive.
    I'm busy trying to prepare for a little family surprise for my husband's 60th birthday tomorrow. The hardest part is keeping my mouth shut when I'm with him.

  5. Aw! He looks like a very nice young man, GM! The Scooby Do candle is adorable! I hope your day is good and that you sit still and place warm rice bags on the achey parts. Tea. Definitely use one of those clean teacups for a few cuppas!

  6. Ladders and climbing on chairs once was nothing, but as the years pass they become dangerous activities. When my mother-in-law was my age she climbed on the side of the bathtub to reach and kill a spider, fell and broke her hip. Monday I cleaned under the bed and went through the storage containers that I had under there and then Tuesday I cleaned the well-house. It is amazing how much we can store and forget about. Our grandson looks very please with his Scooby Doo candle . . . I think it is probably very nostalgic of his childhood. Very appropriate too . . . 18 is the passage from childhood to adulthood :)
    Have a lovely weekend.
