We had a grand time in New York ride from airport to beautiful Hotel Intercontinental Times Square,  four shows, touring Manhattan. eating good food.....all wonderful!  Ella was quite impressed with the place and found out that maybe NYC was alot more than she ever imagined it would be!  Her favorite things were the Broadway Shows and spending time in the hotel!

Great time as always at the Cherrington family reunion ~ held at my brother's acreage in the Nemadji State Forest near Duluth, Minnesota!  Two days of peace, love and rock 'n roll!  haha!

We were missing several of the grandchildren but had a good turnout nonetheless!

July Birthdays

Today we celebrated birthdays ~ Steve's 65th (today!), Ella's 13th (23rd) ~  I made the usual Sunday brunch - scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links, hash brown potatoes, assorted fruits, coffee cake and as a treat we had Krispie Kreme donuts!  After the food, came the gifts....Ella still gets so excited for that!  I have a hard time remembering when my birthday was a cause for excitement or a celebration for that matter! haha!    Ella is lucky this year, she will be feted again on her actual birthday this Saturday when we are all up north at the Cherrington reunion!

Been there done that

But oh!  how glorious it was....

Just returned from a month's vacation on Oahu ~ the days were filled with blue skies, sunshine and 80 degree temperatures!  There was time to relax, to sight see, to eat delicious meals and to see many friends and some family too!

Now I am back in Sherwood Forest and spring has arrived!  The grass is greening up, buds are opening on trees and daffodils, hyacinths, forsythia and pussy willows are in bloom...

So, it's back to my regularly scheduled programming!

Happy Birthday to my Grandma Evenson ~ she was born on the Sunde homeplace across the field from her family church LeSueur River Lutheran Church in rural New Richland, MInnesota. She would be 120 years old had she lived. No kinder soul ever walked this earth... I think about her nearly every day and think of how many lives she touched. A country school teacher for almost 15 years before she married, a mother of 7, and grandma to 20 - she always had a smile on her face and a song to be singing!!! Here she is ~ Alice Amanda Sunde Evenson ~ sitting at the bottom left with her mother and six sisters...

Happy Birthday Mother!

Yesterday was my Grandpa C's birthday, his 124th had he lived...

He was a gentleman beyond belief...  I think of him nearly every day and feel so very thankful that I had him in my live until 1985 when I was 35 years old...
