Finally, home for a while. Took a peaceful walk in the neighborhood, just around sunset. The economy must be picking up - there are houses for sale and sold, and new houses being built.
Chuck's birthday cake. We went out to dinner and just had a nice evening together.
Summer hat, wishful thinking right now.
This saucy little fellow is a house finch. Mama looks similar, but doesn't have the rosy highlights.
Getting ready for Chuck's Big BIG Birthday Party - twice baked potatoes. I made two sheet cake pans full, and there wasn't a one left. The recipe is really easy, too, and can be made a day ahead.
So glad to be home, and to have something to celebrate.
