A birthday and some fill ins

August 1, 2013

Tonight we celebrated hubby’s grandma’s 87th birthday. We went to dinner at her club and for a change it was actually really good. I had these truffle ravioli with a mushroom and artichoke sauce – totally delicious. Grandma was in good spirits and enjoyed all of us singing “Happy Birthday” to her. Little One got a little whiny towards the end of the evening – it was late for her and she went to sleep the minute we got home.

8-1 grandma birthday

And now time to join Hilary for some fill in fun!!!

Each week, Hilary plans on listing four statements with a blank for us to fill in on our own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her. If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is Tami from Empty Nest in IL– she came up with the last two statements!

Hilary and I would LOVE it if you could please help her spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

This week’s statements:
1. Sometimes _____
2. Time ____ but ____ or are we_____
3. My favorite meal to cook is _____, because ______
4. When it comes to social networking, I log on _______

My answers:

1. Sometimes I drive myself crazy worrying and wondering about things I know I cannot change.

2. Time often seems to get away from us but somehow we always manage to get things done or are we not as busy as it seems.

3. My favorite meal to cook is dessert, because I really love to bake!!!

4. When it comes to social networking, I log on to most of my social media accounts with my phone or tablet.

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!!!

    I can’t argue with you about desserts. They’re pretty darn spectacular! Happy Birthday to grandma!

      Thanks, Liz. 🙂

    Happy birthday! Looks like a wonderful group. I love to bake as well.

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 10:44 pm

      Thank you. It was a pretty nice group! 🙂

  • Claudia August 2, 2013 at 6:51 am

    I love baking, too. And checking social media with phone or tablet, yes, but commenting and posting – I keep that to a minimum 😉

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 10:43 pm

      I’ve blogged from both my tablet and phone and it works in a pinch but I do prefer my laptop for all that stuff!

    What a great picture and happy 87th to Grandma!!! She looks fabulous!!! I agree about dessert—love to bake but don’t do as much of it now since it is just two of us at home and usually only one of us!!!! Have a great weekend!

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 10:42 pm

      I can see why you wouldn’t bake as much with just the two of you. I got a whole gang I can feed, so it’s usually not an issue.

    I don’t like logging on with my phone – probably because I have trouble seeing the screen.

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 10:41 pm

      I really like using my phone when I’m out and about – at home I’m usually on my laptop.

  • Alma August 2, 2013 at 10:01 am

    Happy Birthday to your grandma! She looks great and so happy.
    I like to read on my phone but the comments dont show up sometimes so I end up using the laptop.
    Time management is a big one for me too.

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 10:39 pm

      I have issues with commenting too on mobile devices. For that I like to use my laptop… Thanks so much for stopping by.

  • Katrin August 2, 2013 at 10:01 am

    I always worry about all kinds of things too. I really try to stop worrying but it’s difficult!

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 10:37 pm

      Katrin, I try not too worry too much bit sometimes I just can’t help myself.

  • TBM August 2, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    I love baking too. It’s the only type of cooking I can do. And 87! That’s wonderful. Poor Little One. She’s had a rough couple of weeks.

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 10:35 pm

      She sure did but she’s doing great – she was just tired after a long day at camp. She had such a blast this week and was so happy to be back. Yup, 87 – it’s pretty amazing.

  • Janice August 2, 2013 at 11:42 pm

    I sooo do that first one too! Or maybe that’s just a motherhood curse? LOL.
    And happy 87th your grandma! May she have many more wonderful years ahead of her!

    • Susi August 2, 2013 at 11:44 pm

      Thanks, Janice. And yes, maybe motherhood is a big art of the equation to #1. 🙂

  • Hilary August 3, 2013 at 11:24 am

    love the picture with grandma!
    I love baking too!

    • Susi August 3, 2013 at 4:56 pm

      I try to take a picture with grandma every so often. It’s important!

  • Rorybore August 4, 2013 at 12:07 am

    What a wonderful picture you got!! Happy Birthday to Grandma. such a blessing that you can all be together on her special day.
    I have pinned so many recipes – main and dessert – and I cannot wait to try out new dishes when I finally have all the kids in school come September. It will be so fun to cook without constant interruption. there will be music; oh yes. haha
