Gladiolas are back

Bought these beauties at Kroger for less than 4 dollars. When I get glads like this I can make them last forever. When the bottom blooms fade, I deadhead them, cut the stems off an inch or so and soon a bloom will appear further up on the stem.

Hope something is giving you joy today!

60 Years old today - Yikes

Really it's okay. I had a lovely day. I had to work until 3PM. I came home to my mom, my grandkids and their dogs. Everyone else had to work today.

My mom 'made' me a donut cake (per my request).

She is a beautiful mom.

She also bought me flowers.



We played Phase 10 and I won!


Then we played Yahtzee...


My granddaughter Kat won. Here she is with me and their dog, Molly.




My grandson Jay came in second. Here he is with me and their dog, Eddie.

I came in dead last.

I don't feel 60. Maybe tomorrow. When I wake up and my knees hurt for the first 5 minutes. But not today.

Book recs

If you are up for some book recommendations skip on over to Jenny Crusie's website where every Thursday is Good Book Thursday.

I posted a rec for Jana Deleon's latest.

I have also just re-read SEP's book - A'int She Sweet. SEP is always worth a re-read.
