Well, this has been a wonderful week. Full of love. Our grandsons came from out of state to be with us on our anniversary. It being the 50Th, my son and daughter put on a lovely dinner at a local restaurant which was decorated beautifully with lovely orchids from Hawaii, and leis for myself and husband. Don't we look festive? I was quite surprised. All except for three people that were invited, came. It was great seeing them all together, and visiting and reminiscing about old times. My son gave a touching story of our first years, and other tidbits of our life together, and it made my hubby teary!! My daughter and granddaughter sang a couple of songs, and one played the violin as they sang. The other granddaughter and her boyfriend played a duet on the violin and flute. It was so lovely, and romantic. The two grandsons that came from out of state also spoke. Such love felt by all.:-) The dinner was nice as well, I had salmon, and it was excellent!!!
Lots of pictures were taken by sons, daughters, granddaughters, brother in laws, and brother. I will have many pictures to look back on, and relive the wonderful 50TH. Oh, not to leave out, my husband sang the Hawaiian Wedding song to me as well. Till next time~~~ Antique Rose

This past Friday, I went to the Japanese Gardens in nearby town. It was really beautiful. The garden was really in good shape, everything trimmed to perfection!! A Kori pond was there also, and we got to see them being fed and it was something to see. Didn't know there were so many different colors!! There were lots of turtles sunning themselves too. There was a nice senior center on the premises and we had a nice lunch before returning home. I plan to go back again and perhaps bring a picnic lunch. Quite peaceful and relaxing.
Yesterday we went to my daughters and helped granddaughter celebrate her 15Th birthday. A great hot day dinner of Chinese Chicken Salad was consumed and a yummy birthday cake. It was a plain yellow cake(requested by the birthday girl) and it was quite moist and tasty and went with the Mango ice cream quite well. Sometimes you forget that the simple is best!!! Anyway, we had fun and I played Monopoly with the girls. Next birthday coming up in October.
A busy week coming up, Antique club meeting, dental appointments, and a new washer and dryer coming in sometime as well. Antique Rose

Yesterday was our annual wine and art festival. My friend met me there, and we explored each and every row!! Had a taco lunch, and walked/talked some more. I found two lovely dresses to wear on a trip we're planning later in the fall. Needed something comfy to wear, and these fit the bill. Also found a nice shirt and tee with cute bumble bees on them, that will be nice to bring as well. It is going on today, but don't know if I will be able to go again.
On a more sober note, my walking partner and friend's daughter is not doing well. I think that the cancer was too wide spread, I am waiting for an update. Then found out today that a long time friend had passed away last Thursday. She was really a nice person, and will be missed. It makes you realize that each day is one to be enjoyed and treasured.
