Mom’s 90th Birthday

Bro and I organized an Open House at the Village Clubhouse for Mom’s 90th Birthday. Win did all the invitations and flowers and helped me with the food. I ordered little sandwiches from the Barn Market down the street and a cake, veggie, fruit and cheese trays from Foodland as it was just easier. It was pricey but Bro is paying for half.

We had about 75 people attend. Some we hadn’t seen for 20 years or so! Some we had no idea what their address was but Win looked them up on the internet and sent out an invitation anyway. They were all so glad we had invited them and were happy to see Mom. It was supposed to be from 2 to 4 pm but we didn’t get home until after 7. It was so great to see our old neighbours and our parent’s friends from when we were growing up. Bro and his girlfriend had worked for hours putting together a computer presentation of old photos, speech etc. It was quite good. Everyone had a great time. I think Mom was a bit overwhelmed but enjoyed it.

Sunday morning we had a Potluck Breakfast at the church. I took an apple pancake casserole and Win took eggs in ramekins. It was good. I was tired so didn’t do much the rest of the day.

I had my wisdom tooth out on Wednesday. They gave it to me to take home. It is huge!! It didn’t bother me until last night, it started aching. Hope it’s not getting infected.
