Lazy Sunday

It sure was a lazy day up here on the mountain with not a lot going on.  We sat out on the porch and had a nice breakfast and watched the squirrels and chipmunks scurrying about gathering food for the upcoming winter.  Gerry has been collecting walnuts to feed the squirrels and she threw a few of them out to draw them closer so she could watch them.  The haven't found them yet, but I imagine in the morning they will be gone.

Her Christmas cactus flowers have been thriving and have a lot of flower buds on them.  I think they will be Halloween flowers this year rather than Christmas.  The flowers usually bloom early like this and then again in February or near that time.  We have been carrying them in the motorhome for the past 4 years and they are getting quite large to carry, but we like them so much we will make room for them.  

Gerry made some of her delicious spaghetti today along with garlic bread and also baked a cake for my birthday.  We couldn't celebrate it with Cassie, Jack and Lexa on Friday so we did it today.  We got there in time to watch most of the Green Bay - Chicago Bears football game and had a great time.  The Bears got robbed on a punt return for a touchdown and lost.  Cassie is a Green Bay fan so she was happy.  I enjoyed watching the game with her just to hear her comments.

The cake was Lemon Supreme  with lemon icing on top.  It doesn't get much better than that.  They couldn't find any number as high as I am old so a big number 40 was on the cake.  I managed to blow out the two candles and now am waiting for my wishes to come true.  Lexa brought the cake in and they all sang happy birthday to me and I sang along with them.

Today is also the birthday of a friend of ours, Herb Randol.  I won't say how old he is, but he is getting closer to me every day.



  1. First, the Packers won by 10 so the touchdown wouldn't have mattered.

    Second, sounds like you're milking this birthday thing. How many days of celebrating are you up to this year?

    Last, save me a piece of that lemon cake. I love lemon cake, too.
    Glad you're having a good time.

  2. Happy birthday again and again, as many times as you want to admit to! A quiet day can be a treat, and lemon cake is always a real treat!
