birthday pie

My son and granddaughter Alice stopped by for birthday pie this morning. The birthday guy said banana cream pie was his favorite and it was enjoyed by all. This pie came from a local Marie Calendars restaurant-and I was happy to not have to make it myself. He opened his gifts and we enjoyed a short but lovely visit.

After they left I finished altering straps on M's sandals - four pairs are now the proper length and much appreciation was given. I used a leather needle on my Bernina and it worked well enough.
A fiddly job but better than paying some shoe repair person, it's my frugal side winning the day.

I did some much needed housework- boring, but oh so nice to see the results. I also washed up some flannel and have it folded away until I decide what to make with it.

The day has flown by and it has rained off and on as well. It was a good day to do inside tasks and take breaks to enjoy reading online or chatting with a friend when I had the chance.

I am doing the last of the paperwork sorting/filing/and writing up directions for the incoming person for my Washington guild recent position I have concluded. I can not believe the stacks I managed to accumulate! My goal is to stick with this tonight until it is a done deed.

With luck, I will wrap up in a few hours and then watch a movie with my sweetie.

I have a few ideas in the quilting realm for tomorrow.

And, next Saturday is Alice's big 3 birthday party. Last count was 15+ children invited and I have volunteered to ride herd , err, I mean help with the adorable little ones. If the weather improves I will be out in the garden..things are sprouting and growing and it's looking very green!

Have a joyful rest of the weekend!

Happy Birthday to Eli! Looks like Ms. Alice enjoys banana cream pie as much as her daddy says HE does.

I didn't realize that her birthday was so close to his. How could she be three already?? Where did the time go?

Hurray for productive days, quilting or otherwise.

How sweet of you to finish up the paperwork and write directions for the next person to take that position in the guild. That doesn't happen many times, and having been there/done that, I know how appreciated that will be!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks birthday pie far outdoes birthday cake! Looks like it was thoroughly enjoyed!

Good luck with the birthday party duties!

Birthday pie -- what a wonderful tradition! (Not such a big cake fan myself.) And to share it with a granddaughter is even better.
We've had lots of rain, too, and it has made the yard look wonderful!
