Monday, Happy Birthday to me!

     Well I have hit the good old 56 and I am in the down ward slide into 60.  My that seems old, but I don't feel old.  Happy Birthday Sissie! and remember you are still older than me....

     I had a great weekend.  I worked in the yard, got the deck furniture out, hub's sprayed all the trees, I got the ivy trimmed on the rock wall, we went and bought 5 new chicks and they are so cute!  I had a leghorn, 3 Amaurcanas ? and one Buff something or other.  Sorry to all you chicken experts don't know how to spell the names, but they are cute. We have not introduced them to the other chicken yet as we have to divide the cage.

     Hub's and I took youngest daughters car down to tire shop to get the snow tires removed and the radials put on.  They wanted to charge us $25 a tire to change over the sensors, so we went down the street and had it done for $40.00.  I could see a rip off immediately. Then of course the car was on empty and I just knew she would come home from break absolutely broke so I filled her car.  She has a 10 gallon tank and it took 10.86 to fill it, I swear she drives on magic.  When she got home she still had over $100.00 because she knew she had to gas up her car and get groceries.  I think she might be growing up.

      Hub's and I went to lunch at our favorite pizza place and had a cal zone.  This was free on a gift card.  Then we took a long bike ride on the levy.  I cleaned a little house and started my seed trays.  Beans, squash, eggplant, cucumbers, we will buy everything else except, carrot, radish and beet seeds as I have those.

     On Sunday both the younger daughters and one boyfriend came over and cooked a very nice dinner.  I received 2 movies and a beautiful pop up book of the Wizard of Oz to read to my dance students.  They will love it.  I always read the story while they stretch for a few minutes and I make it last for several weeks.  It is the only time they are quite.  I ate way too much candy last night and there is a huge amount of cake left, but I will take it to the studio tonight and the kids will eat it.

     Today I have a girlfriend taking me out to lunch so that will be fun.  I am starting to get behind in the shop so I really have to set my nose to the grindstone for the next three days.  We are going on spring break next week and I need to get some money put together.  Just enough for gas and a few eats!  We will stay at mom's and daughters.

     But I have to go as car is here to get me.

Have a great and productive day!
