A Month of Birthdays

So, it has been awhile now since I have come to visit. 
Lots of projects to do.

For many of us Spring is here, or at least for a little while.
I know that I do not really have to start weeding, because this is BUFFALO and there will be

However, the weeds will still grow.
I have started.
I can't wait to get to planting, as I wander around assessing the weed situation, 
I also am taking mental notes as to where I want to add a new plant or ten.

This weekend though, we took a break from cleaning, painting, weeding and raking to celebrate.


Each month we get together at my father's home to celebrate all of the birthdays during that month.
Each birthday person has a favorite cake made for them.
I made my brothers' a cheese cake with blueberry sauce on top, I used my mother's recipe.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you think about it.
I brought home NO leftovers.
My oldest son said it was his favorite and when will I make it again.

This day of celebration is more a reason to get together.
Oh boy did we ever.
It is a time for my husband and my sister's husband to fight over who gets to take a nap on the couch.
The children play outside if the weather permits. 
 We were so lucky, the temps were in the 70's.
I could enjoy the rest of Spring like this.

Now we look forward to April's birthdays.

I hope all is well with you all.
I will have pictures of the basement soon.
