Remains of the Day

Yesterday was Elder Daughter's twenty-seventh birthday. There was a celebratory dinner with most of our immediate family (sorry you weren't here, Younger Sib!) along with Boyfriend and Granddaughter's boyfriend. And of course a homemade (by me) cake and ice cream for dessert. She's had a lot of challenges in her young life, but she's come through them all with flying colors and is beautiful - inside and out!'s still hot, but the flowers don't seem to mind as long as I give them little sips of water.

Except for maybe this little Christmas cactus which I should probably get off that hot windowsill and into a little more shady area. Don't you love this old hippo planter!

Mr. Muddling went fishing last night in the Gulf along with our son and daughter's boyfriend. They have returned with a few nice fish and are now recovering their lost sleep. I think they all had a really good time. There's just something about boys of all ages out together fishing.

Hope your day is filled with lots of what you love most!

Hugs and kisses,

Elaine, your flowers are so hibiscus is just now breaking ground and look at yours. I think the hippo would like to cool off too. You had a busy party weekend that sounds like fun; we had a wonderful yesterday with the kids.
