What a milestone—to reach your 90th birthday! Nat lives alone, drives locally and up the Boulder to our house, makes his own decisions, takes no medications and is generally a positive person. I think he enjoyed the fuss the family made over him last night and we sure enjoyed the party!
We enjoyed a happy hour while dinner cooked. Katie had stopped by the local feed store last Tuesday and brought home one of their kittens. Yesterday she got another kitten so the original one would have company. Emmi and Buddy (LoraLee’s yorkie-poo) weren’t too sure about this creature—Emmi really didn’t like the creature sitting in Nat’s lap—that’s her lap!! You can just see the little black kitten beside Nat.
Lonn grilled these humongous steaks (one steak could have fed three people!!), I made Brenda’s cheesy potatoes (which everyone loved Brenda), and a salad. For dessert I broke my “no prepared food” rule and we had one of those decadent Costco huge chocolate cakes! Those cakes are a favorite special occasion thing around here!
As I type this blog entry, it is snowing heavily. We woke to snow, it has snowed/rained all day but was too warm for any white stuff to accumulate. The foothills around us are white, though. We are under a winter storm watch with 1-2 feet of snow expected in the higher elevations around us! Welcome to Memorial Day weekend in Montana—we need the moisture and welcome it!
Made granola today, leftovers for lunch, fiddled with my iPod and computer—the learning curve for me and any Apple product is way too steep! and quilted.
