|Happy 8th Birthday, Elijah!|
Wednesday after tap class, Kayla and I both walked over to the Red Barn next door to see what Grandpa Mike was up to.
Thursday, our 43rd anniversary was briefly acknowledged before Mike left to work with Sam.

In the evening the water aerobics ladies went out to eat so I joined them this time, grateful for any opportunity not to eat by myself. Afterwards some were going to a jamberry nails party. I went along.
Crooked fingers, but look at those nails!
Michael meanwhile, busy at robotics...
That's how we spent our anniversary. Don't worry, we have a special trip planned after robot-bagging day two weeks from now!
Friday a dear friend, who lost her husband this week, asked me to drive her around on a couple of errands. We had a good day together, like old times.
While at the mall we stumbled across a very special shop, Hearts4Africa, drawn by the anti-trafficking messages as well as the attractive wares from other countries.
We met the dynamic owner, Rhonda, who travels and speaks on behalf of the 27,000,000 enslaved in the world today. Statistics and stories are appalling and remain mostly unreported--hidden crimes.
Saturday the plan was to celebrate Leah's 40th birthday with a ladies tea at Aunt Sue's Tea Room, home of yet another Garfield statue!
|Happy Birthday, Leah!|
Those of us who were able to make it had a lovely time.
Later, a special little guy stopped by with his daddy to brighten our party!
