Tonight's dinner was SO simple. I just sat at my desk and finished up yesterday's left over's from Irelands graduation dinner. I was so involved with the party that I forgot to take pictures.
This might not look so great..but it was delicious. Finger food for big people who want to read blogs and not eat their dinner in the conventional way. What is it? Well, it's BBQ fresh pineapple, steak, chicken, cherry tomatoes and in short ..a shish kabob off it's stick!
The base of this California Coastal Redwood is now taking up two of those trunk protectors.
Daughter, Erin, was here last night and looked at the trees....
...and said "Mom, you DO know that those tree's have reached the end of their alloted space..don't you??" Of COURSE knew! What did she think..I was blind??
A neighbor across and down the street one house, has these same ferns in her flower bed in front.
The other day I got a shock when I noticed that she had whacked them off so that they reminded me of a boy's 1950's flat top haircut. I mean...what in the world was she thinking and don't tell me that everyone does things differently! It looks terrible and I will take a picture if I get a chance just to show you. I mean..WHY??? :) It takes all kinds I guess. But...you're right! They're her ferns! Sheesh!!
That's it for today. The graduation party was a success and my tiny great grandson took his very first steps in front of our home with all the family cheering him on! Daughter took pictures...but me? Oh well, as usual I was caught up in the moment and didn't get a single picture of anything or anyone. Have to depend on daughter for pictures...and that's PIE IN THE SKY! (same daughter that told me my trees had "outgrown" their space! Grrrr..I hate it when she is right!!
Can you tell I'm tired??
p.s. She also told me I gave a utube moment when I decided to ride down our driveway (it's slanted) in my husbands old desk chair that rolls! Not at all sure what I was thinking....but worked great and I didn't have to stand on a board!! I did however have to be rescued before I hit the street... probably saved me from breaking my hip!
