My seasonal table. I call this my "lazy" table, when I don't want to put much effort into it.
The three sections of a card that was given to my son when he was nearly one, in 1966. The card stands up, in three sections, and we have displayed it every year since he received it. I should have given it to him when he was here visiting. I guess it looks pretty good for a 40 year old greeting card, huh? The black parts are velvety soft.
Two of my children and their families came to visit Sunday, to celebrate my birthday. Two of my granddaughters baked a devil's food cake (my favorite) and we all enjoyed a slice of it after dinner at a local cafeteria. I am sure you are thinking "A cafeteria? For a birthday dinner?" but I can assure you, that when 12 people go out for dinner, and 6 of them are children, a cafeteria is the restaurant of choice!
The cake was full of candles, but had fewer than the requisite 66. I would have never been able to blow them out! They had one candle of the kind that re-lights and it seemed destined to burn forever. I blew until my face turned red and I nearly fainted, before I realized it was a trick. The children laughed at me and their laughter was beautiful music to my ears......I am well and truly blessed.
