Random 5 Friday

Friday has come and gone - but I'm sure I'm still random.

1.  This weekend is carpet cleaning weekend.  It is funny how two people, who take off their shoes at the door and don't have pets, can produce such dirty water when cleaning the carpet - but now it is clean and oh so nice smelling.


2. Sunshine sunshine sunshine - oh how I love sunshine.  After the last bit of carpet is cleaned we are headed out to enjoy the sunshine.

3.  Birthday parties - Tomorrow we are all going to the lake a few blocks from our house for a party for our Grandson Jahn-Zyel, who will be 12.  He's a wondrously sweet boy.  And the party will be for Don too - who will be - well,  a bit older than Jahn.   He's a wondrously sweet man.

4. Grandson Ben planned the party - I was recording secretary.  We even sent out e-vites with moving whirly-gigs.

Jahn-Zyel helping me bake a pie when he was 6 (that was the entire counter space in the house we lived in then)

5.  There will be burgers and hot dogs, potato chips, salads and all sorts of wonderful picnic things to eat. And birthday cake and birthday pie - and ice cream.  And then some swimming and maybe a canoe ride.

Happy summer birthdays!!!!!

What nice memories of the journey you took growing up together. This is birthday-time for us too - my 3 year old granddaughter was born on the same day, two years later, as her twin boy cousins. We're going over for her party in an hour - the boys had theirs last weekend.
Have fun at yours! How nice for grandpa to have a birthday twin!

I love the pictures but have to laugh at the counter space. Must have been the same kitchen planner we had. Ours is a piece of plywood over most of the sink.

Sweet! Parties, cake and two adorable boys!!

Happy, happy birthdays! I have had a few kitchens with only slightly more counter space than that one. Quite a challenge! (And lucky you! Clean carpets! Enjoy the clean! Anything we clean, from carpets to furnace filters is packed with black Labrador fur.)

No carpets here -- just wood and tile floors, but they get dirty too!
Have a wonderful birthday celebration.

Hey that is about the size of my current counter space :) That much on two sides of the sink and that's it! :)
