Birthday Supper With Jeff & Chris

Wednesday Evening, October 21

You know you are old when your oldest son is fifty-one. ūüôā

Brickhouse (2)We arrived a bit early, so I walked around the property looking for photo ops.

Cooking by Lydia & A Helicopter Overhead

Tuesday, July 21

Since Lydia is studying culinary arts, I thought it would be fun if she cooked a meal for us before going to her last work camp for the summer – to Colorado – and then home to Maine.

DSC_8100She went shopping for the ingredients she needed.

She sliced potatoes and sweet potatoes, put olive oil in cupcake tins, seasoned and layered them in cupcake tins, baked, and served them with sour cream.

Everything was delicious.

DSC_8147It was a beautiful, cloudy evening. When I was outside enjoying the weather, a helicopter flew overhead.

DSC_8150I love a day when someone cooks for me and the evening is filled with the sound of a helicopter.
