Good Morning

This is what an 82 year old looks like first thing in the morning

Yep It is my 82nd year on the right side of the grass. I feel pretty good considering that things are slowly wearing out.  I’m looking forward to seeing friends and family on Saturday when it is lasagna, garlic toast, salad. ice cream, and cake for all.

A call yesterday from the Vet’s office informed me that Brandy had to stay on her special dog food for another 2-3 months and can have nothing extra.  Well I want her with me so I will follow the doctor’s orders.

David caught this on camera yesterday.

One of the woodpeckers from across the street.

My wild bird book is packed away so I can’t tell you which one it is but there are at least three or four visiting the feeder. Up in Otisville I used to get pictures of several different birds that visited the crabapple tree the yard,

Well the second bit of green is up.

My neighbor down the street got hers up first but mine is now hanging.

We haven’t started decorating the inside of the house yet but it is coming,  The only Irish I have is my dad’s mother but we celebrate anyway.

Tomorrow I visit my tax man but I don’t think I have any homemade jam for him this year.  I’ll check the garage today to see.  I do have a sh**  load of papers to show him but he is a very kind and caring man so it won’t be a bad meeting. .

Well birthday or not my zoo has to be fed, my bed made, and the domestic goddess stuff has to be done so I close for now. Have a great day!

  1. Well, and GOOD MORNING to you, too! when I looked at the woodpecker picture I did one of those: “WHAT am I looking at?” From my angle/view it looked like a bedspring mattress propped up in a pick up truck UNTIL you mentioned the bird! Didn’t even SEE the bird! Ah, life – ain’t it grand! Will be seein’ you Saturday, Lady! BIG HUGS!!! Pammie

  3. Happy Birthday Momma! Have a great party on the Weekend with your people. Your looking good for one who still is ” above ground one more year”.

  4. Happy Birthday! I missed seeing the date written in my birthday book, but Les said on daFacebook that we should come over to say Hello! Husband and I are getting over the respiratory virus plague, and off to the jobs we went! Both of us took medicines, and turning in early bedtime. Glad your celebrating will go on and over the weekend! Lasagna would be tasty after all the tea and chicken noodle soup that I have had all week… ~~love and Huggs, Diane
