We've had another birthday here. It's dh's. This is the last year of his 50's. I can hardly believe it. Life and time flies by, it really does. So here are some birthday pictures:
I wanted to get a fire pit, but they are too much for me to pay at the store. I tried to come up with another idea and I realized I had an old grill I hadn't used in awhile. So I dug a hole and buried the grill halfway into the ground and covered it up. It became sturdy and was at the right height for us to sit and roast hot dogs. The wood was free as we lived next to the woods or you could say we live in the woods.
Dh got plenty of presents and I think he enjoyed his birthday.
Right now hurricane Sandy is outside; well, we are not in the middle of it, but it's causing a rainy, windy mess. However, so far so good..we still have our electricity and that's a big plus, believe me.
Dd and I went out today in the wind and rain to have our nails done. I do not usually do this because I'm scared of getting a nail fungus. I've heard of horror stories about nail palors. But, I broke down today. Dd and I did not have to wait. We walked right in and got taken care of! I got shelac nail tips with orange on them:
I have to get used to working with them now.
I've been working on a biker back patch. I'm making one representative of the unborn. When I get it done, I'll post it.
Dh, dd and I had the honor of meeting an actress who gave her testimony about her abortion at the Catherine Foundation Banquet last night. It was awesome. Shari Rigby has played on the Young and the Restless and some other shows, but she has recently starred in a movie called October Baby. If nobody has see it, y can get it at the Christian Bookstore or probably any video store now. I won't tell you the plot of the movie in case you want to see it, but it was based off the life of Gianna Jensen; a woman who survived being aborted.
The food was very good, too. Really enjoyed the roast beef, fish, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad and bread and butter! Delicious!
