Being the chronicles of my life between retirement and death. This will hopefully be a long time span, but one never knows. I have enough materials to keep me busy each and every day of the rest of my life and I plan to use them all. Let's see how this plays out.

I have my life back!
The wedding and reception have come and gone.
Now that we have had a few of days and nights to sleep, I can say a great time was had by all. The weather was lovely for the reception and the egg hunt was a hoot. We hid 1000+ eggs (plastic filled with treats and hardboiled) and that kept the hunters going for quite awhile. I was in the back area watching the little ones look for eggs. In the front the serious competitors roamed the property looking high and low. There was fabulous food that guests brought to add to the basic hamburgers and hot dogs. The bride spent many many hours over the last few weeks making desserts and freezing them. There was wedding cake in addition to lots of cupcake styles and brownies and tiramisu (?). We had people all over eating and visiting. Angie and her family flew in from Montana, the best man came from LA, but most people were local or from the Roseville area about 45 minutes away. It is a bit odd to have people at your home that you have never met, but think you should know. My usual trouble with names adds to that conundrum. The birthday party for Natalie was Sunday night at Chevy's and she got the birthday sombrero and song and was impressed by the whole thing. That hat will probably haunt them for the rest of their days. It's the sort of thing no child wants to part with, but has no practical application and is too big to be easy to store. That's the sort of thing grandparents get to inflict on their children, heh heh. I spent a lovely day spinning yesterday. Such a peaceful thing to do. Today it is raining and good book reading weather. I have my life back.
