Last week, Sonny turned 70 years old ~ how'd that happen? On the previous Saturday night, all the kids, grands and greats gathered for dinner at the Oak Park Tavern for wonderful food and celebration! Seattle son Chris was in Ohio on business so he could join us ~ a happy coincidence!

This past Thursday night was our Homebuilders meeting and Sonny is the President for the coming year!! His son, Brian and my son, Ted were instrumental in getting a large turnout there to wish the old guy a happy birthday! The cake is decorated with the logo from his first business card and it was very tasty! Sonny was president back in the 80'a and here he is again! It was such a fun evening and a surprise to both of us! We're becoming the patriarch and matriarch of our organization ~ that is scary!!!

The settee in our keeping room is sporting a new cover! After twenty years of being used every day, it was showing wear.

I found this great fabric at The Added Touch ~ a local primitive store and they gave me the name of a local fellow who did a great job of reupholstering. And he only had it one week!!

It is -14 degrees this morning ~ pretty frosty out! Lots to do here ~ getting ready to go away for a whole month! Woo hoo!!

Stay warm everybody ~ this has been quite a winter for lots of the country. I see many of my fellow bloggers and Facebook friends are hooking up a storm while weathering the storms ~ not me ~ I've been up to my ears in year end reports, w2's and 1099's!! But soon ~ very soon ~ there is sun and fun in our future!!

Talk to you soon!!

Happy Belated birthday to Sonny. What a coincidence, my husband George turned 70 last week too, on the 23rd January. He wanted muffins instead of a cake so I baked him some yummy muffins.

Nice job on that settee and nice fabric.

Lucky you, I hope that you have a wonderful vacation, don't forget your camera.
Keep warm and safe.Hugs,
