Had a family get together over the weekend. My daughter's oldest daughter turned 18, or is on the 14Th. She always requests unusual cakes, and this was no exception!! She wanted rats and spiders on it. Good thing that it tasted great!! A red Velvet cake with wonderful homemade cream cheese icing. Yum!!! Had a great out to dinner at a local Japanese restaurant. Really enjoyed it. Sunday was a fun day as well, went to an Antique faire. Found some cute ear rings made with typewriter keys, one had x and other o. Hugs and kisses. :-) Then an indian head nickel pendant. Made in the year I was born. I put it on a silver chain, and it looks great. Last but not least, a bracelet with leaves and nuts (silver), really nice and it fit. I usually don't find stuff for myself to wear, but look for china, etc. So it was different this time. My granddaughters and daughter found a few treasures as well. I go to our Antique Club trip tomorrow and then leave next day for our cross country trip, hope to find treasures and adventures.

Well, I haven't been on much lately. I am getting ready for a cross country trip to see grands and perhaps see things that I have not seen before. I have been busy with getting things done before I leave, and hopefully have not forgotten anything!! Usually we do not go for more than a few days, so this time there is more preparation. But then I get ahead of myself. Last weekend I had a craft fair to go too. It was fun to see people I knew and find a few handmade items. A lovely scarf , a purse, and a necklace and earring set. Also went shopping and got a couple of button bouquets at a local antique store. They are so neat!! Will have to take a picture and put it on soon. My sweet peas that I planted a couple of weeks are growing quite nicely, and hopefully they will not be dead when I return. No one to water them, so perhaps we will get a sprinkle or two that will help them! Still walking at the lake, and volunteering at the local senior center. So many nice people there, and I like being around them. Guess you could say that it is my second family!! I will miss them . My daughter's oldest daughter turns 18 this month, and tomorrow is the family get together. That is always fun, and I enjoy being with them. Lots of special hugs and kisses. Never too many of them!!! There are pictures to be picked up! Yea!!
Love pictures of the family, don't you? I also have a monthly birthday party at the senior senior this afternoon. Antique Rose
