It’s Friday!

Annnnd it’s birthday season! Some family birthday celebrations occurred in June and some will be later in the year, but we do have an 18th, 35th, 38th, and a 52nd birthday coming up this month and next. We’ll also have the year-before-40th anniversary this summer. No idea what to do for that!

Summer used to be family-visit season here as well, but some came in the Spring and will return in Autumn (until a hugely attended family wedding in December down south where “December” actually means “early September”), but only a couple of family members are coming here for a brief visit — on July 26th/27th.

These Midwesterners will see the ocean no matter what — it’s so rare for them to come here — but I will have to concoct a Plan B for those two days, because northeastern New England weather has even more moods than the ocean.

Suffice it to say we took a Californian Sheldon Cooper-type train enthusiast / engineer on a summer train ride around a beautiful lake and mountain.. in rain and fog!

Anyway, wishing you all wonderful gatherings to look forward to — and/or a simply great weekend!!

    Other than my Dad’s 99th birthday on the 24th, no get togethers are planned here.
    I live too far away from my offspring!

    1. Aw, I’m sorry. 🌷 I guess you’ll have to super-celebrate your Dad’s 99th!

    It’s birthday month for us in July too. Hubby and I celebrated the big 63 six days apart, my MIL has her 93rd in a few days and my DIL has her big 3-0 at the very end of the month. This month is hard on this ole gal who is desperately trying to lose weight! Cake, cake, cake, and more cake!

    Happy visiting and enjoy your family!
