I am blessed!

This has been a beautiful birthday week. The weather has been warm, well, hot some days, but no sweatshirts! I’m not sure what my birthday wishes were, but I’m sure they came true. LeRoy took me to Longhorn Steak House for lunch on my birthday, just about my favorite place to eat for a special occasion.

This week was homecoming week at Sedgwick High School, so in addition to watching the volleyball team remain undefeated we also watched Jadelyn in the parade with her homecoming escort.

and on the field at the football game as a part of the homecoming court.

Jade and some of her friends made special jeans for Friday at school. Most of the decorations were painted on, but she wanted the stars made out of bandana fabric, so I was able to borrow fusible web from a friend to make it happen.

I was delighted to receive a beautiful plant from Rob and Shelly, along with French macaroons. I’ve been doing so much better about keeping plants alive, and I’m hopeful this one will thrive as well. It adds some color to our sparsely furnished living room.

What furnishings we do have will have to be moved into the garage next weekend, because the floors will be refinished beginning on the 26th. We’re fortunate to have a motor home as a spare living space!

This weekend was the Fall Festival at Sedgwick and they always have interesting cars at the car show. This time a rebuilt vintage trailer caught my eye. The work on it was done by the industrial arts students at Sedgwick High School.

Today was the last celebration for the week, or at least the last one I know about. We got together with Heidi and Tim, Jadelyn, Bailey and Brett for lunch after church. We ate at HomeGrown and I had my favorite Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with lemon curd. I didn’t order the whole meal and I still didn’t get through all the pancakes. They are wonderful! Heidi brought a birthday cake for us to share as well as a box of homemade candies. Nice roundup to a week of birthday celebrations.

Earlier in the week, I had the opportunity to get acquainted with long time blog readers Arnie and Arlene Klaassen, whom I had never met. They read the article about us in Active Aging when I retired from the paper in 2010 and have been following us and our travels all these years. What a pleasure it was to know that someone besides my family reads and enjoys what I write!

Another hot week is ahead, along with work on a new fence. Progress by next week, I hope!

Retirement agrees with us! After traveling in our 40' Silver Eagle bus conversion, whose name was Liberty, since 2010, it was time for a change. Now we spend the winter in Yuma, AZ and travel during the spring, summer and fall setting the Pace!
