Did you know that if you are drilling holes in wooden cabinets to attach hardware that there is a right way and a wrong way for the drill bit to turn? If you have the drill going the wrong way, you can push it through a bit, but then it heats up and smokes and smells like you’re making s’mores? Or so I’ve heard… 😉
Last week was birthday week in my family as some of you may remember from previous posts I’ve done. My two sons and I have birthdays all in a row, April 26, 27 and 29. I’m in the middle and neither one of them should have been born so close to my day! Oldest was about a week late and youngest was three weeks early. Hubby always claimed they were my presents but after two I said enough, just buy me jewelry!
It’s true that we had every imaginable sports themed cake as they grew up. And never a cake with flowers except for one year when my sweet neighbor, Evelyn, took pity on me and bought me a wonderful little chocolate cake with pink roses!
But now that they’re grown, we pick a day to celebrate together and this year it was the 29th, youngest’s birthday and the first day of the NFL draft. Be still my heart. So we exchanged gifts, ate bar food with beer and margaritas and watched the Chicago Bears trade up to the 11th round to draft quarterback Justin Fields! Another reason to celebrate this year…
