The weather was so nice this past weekend that we got to go outside and get some work done. We even had a chance to set up our screen tent and enjoy sitting in the swing with our early Sunday morning cup of coffee. The birdbath was only out a few minutes when a little chickadee stopped by for a drink.
My brother, Steve McLain, is feeling well and plans to return to work soon.
Hugh and I went to Tim and Michele’s to visit with the grandchildren, William, Annie, Ajay and Sidney. They had a surprise birthday party planned for Grampa. The cake was chocolate and the frosting was too, because Sidney told her mother that Grampa would like chocolate.
