Today Jim and I went to Oswego and cleaned up Nana and Papa's grave and I planted some Red Portulaca . This is a good plant for there because it doesn't require a lot of care or water and thrives in the heat. The Stella d'Oro Lily I planted last year is growing nicely and will soon be in bloom. This is also a good plant for the cemetary as it will bloom all summer and also doesn't require a lot of care. Jim was happy to see they had put the NYS Trooper Flag at the gravesite again this year.
Yesterday we celebrated Jon's 31st Birthday. He wanted "Breakfast" for dinner so we had Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Hash Browns and toast. His dessert choice was a Yellow Cake with homemade Chocolate icing. He likes T-shirts with "special thoughts" on them so we got this one for him. I think he had a good day.
Yesterday Jim and I attended the Troop D Memorial Service for the deceased mebers of Troop D. We were able to place a rose on the monument for Papa and also, one for Uncel Jack.It was a very nice ceremony and was followed by a lunch put on at the Troopers station.
Today was Mother's day. Jim and the kids made a special dinner with all my favorites. We had Hamburgers cooked on the grill, homemade French Fries ( yum) , salad and Jennifer made me a beautiful yellow cake with homemade Hershey Chocolate Frosting and decorated with buttercream roses. After dinner Jim and I drove to Watertown to celebrate with my Mom and sisters. It was a beautiful sunny day although still a little chilly.
Today we celebrated Jeremy's 35th Birthday. His menu included Steak, salad, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Carrots and a Cheesecake for dessert. He received some coffee, some lottery tickets ( he won a few dollars with these) and some monetary gifts. It was a nice Birthday celebration.
