Happy birthday, Casey…(and a week-end wrap-up)

My old man is getting to be such an old man, but he’s still nearly 2 years younger than me.  Counting the days until retirement, Casey turns 61 today.  We had a little celebration yesterday with the Jrs…

I must gush about what a great man he is, how much I love him, how much the kids and grandkids adore him, and how lucky he is that I found him…   This is the 38th of his birthdays that we have been together and I appreciate him to infinity and beyond.   Looking forward to many, many more years of celebrating with him.

We just worked and worked, all four days of the week-end.  Remember the curtains, table & chairs project?  It’s about 75% finished.   I didn’t have the proper needle and thread to finish the backs of the chairs, but I’ve held them i place until I can pick up the supplies.  I’ll need yet another yard of fabric for the curtains, so I’m headed back out to get those today.  I’m still proud of what we did accomplish…

Before…

After…

Sunday’s birthday celebration also included some Christmas tree decorating with Olivia in charge of the “Ornament Department”…

So now the countdown begins…  We’re going to Nashville, TN on Saturday with the Jrs. for “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” at the Opry House.  I fly to NYC on the 10th for the Rockettes and a whole slew of other festivities.  I’ve taken on a little accompanying job and will be practicing every Wednesday with the choir at Central UMC for their Christmas program on the 20th.  The Jose’ family is going to try to visit the week after Christmas.

Let the countdown begin…

  2. Happy Birthday Casey! A great remodel, fun fabric and the room looks so warm as a result! Kudos for having the talent to make it all yourself!
