~ Porch Party ~ Kitchen Klutz Day ~

Good 56ยบ cloudy morning.
Yesterday we had a 'porch party' for Aaron and Marie. About 19 of us total. Everyone brought food and we had mini sandwiches and cake. Really a fun time and a good visit and the food was fabulous.
The weather was weird. Early in the day I gave the golf cart a bath, Aaron washed his car, the neighbors were washing their cars... then just before 4pm the sprinkles started. They were on and off all afternoon and evening.
After everyone left for home, Aaron put in a movie and we got comfy in the living room. I fell asleep in my chair! Surprise. So, up now and the kids are still sleeping.
Gabby Giffords... then and now...

All I know. I have about 200 pictures on my camera card to get off and organized for Aaron and Marie. And... I need to go to DMV today and get this thing with my license plate straightened out.
