This is my week of birthdays.
My son’s is today, he turned 25. My daughter’s is on Wednesday, she will be 23.
Happy Birthday to the two of them J
Our plans for the week were slightly changed when we received the news on Friday that the Jaffrey fireworks were being cancelled for the year due to a bomb threat. A friend recently told me that the event may still happen this year, I kind of hope so, we really enjoy going to the show every year even if it is kind of costly.
The plan was to celebrate our son’s 25th birthday while we were at the fireworks. I mean, what a better time than that for a milestone birthday?
Instead we had a very quiet birthday for him at home with a Dark Chocolate Fudge cake with Chocolate fudge frosting. It was a good way to sweeten up the day.
We really still need to make our yearly visit to see our daughter. But with the rising cost of gas I’m not sure if we are going to be able to make it this year. She is a five hour drive away, that being one way. We usually make the trip up and back in one day.
We will see. It would be nice to see my two year old granddaughter. They grow up so fast…
Now for ROW80 Check in:
I managed to write a whooping total of 1k words this week.
It was going good when I started recording my daily activities. Then I stopped doing that and the writing went downhill from there.
Then the other day I began playing with this WordPress blog. I think I wasted two days on it while trying to figure out the site. Hopefully I have a handle on it now.
I will once again attempt to keep track of my daily activities to see if my writing habits change. But, I have to finish making my Bread and Butter pickles.
Oh, and yesterday I spent it making a batch of Spaghetti sauce from the tomatoes in our garden. I just love bumper crops, don’t you?
