And, so the partying commenced.....


We had a lovely break in the gloom and grief yesterday....we celebrated my little brother's birthday....he turned 18 on October 1st.....We had our usual suspects over and a couple of newbies. A good time was had by all! I meant to take pictures of our food, but, was pretty involved in the revelry, so, I kind of missed the food before we began devouring it. We scarfed on the usual fare, hamburgers, sausages, guacamole, fresh tomatoes on our burgers...homemade potato salad, (yum) and then chocolate cake and banana pudding for dessert.

We all joked, harassed and teased, but, mostly, we laughed, heartily, almost as if we were shedding our sadness....we giggled with great glee, sniggered, snorted and squealed....opening up our hearts to fun again. I took lots of pictures....ate too much and by late last night I was spent...even my little dog, Texas was ready for bed by the time we got home...in fact, he barely made it up to the bed before his little eyes slammed shut.

Nothing like a little party to bring a person out of a funk, eh?

Have a blessed day......

Peace

Glad you had a good time, and it's good to laugh, even in time of grief, to cleanse the soul. It's nice to see the birthday cake - today is my birthday and I'm too tired to make a cake! LOL!
