A day off… kinda. Vernon said he was going to haul hay as long as the ground remained frozen… as it thaws, you start rutting up the road. As it turned out, he managed to haul hay until noon.
That gave me time to clean up from yesterday’s big birthday celebration for Victoria’s twin boys. While their actual birthday was the 19th, they came over to celebrate with their cousins. We roasted hot dogs at the fire pit, and the adults enjoyed gypsy dinners cooked in the coals. Two birthday cakes and sixteen people…
For those of you who think my life is perfect… here’s proof it’s not! EVERY SINGLE PLATE, SAUCER, AND BOWL THAT I OWN WAS DIRTY. Plus some mixing bowls, pans, and glasses!
No surprise my hands were pruney by the time I finished the dishes!
Oh, well… we made some memories, too.
Here is the link to purchase next year’s Red Dirt In My Soul calendar. A great big THANK YOU to those of you who went right out and purchased a calendar as soon as they were offered!Find me here!

Now you’ve made me hungry! Did no one offer to help with the dishes? Sounds like a job for the grand kids.
I’d pick dirty dishes and a birthday party for twin grand kids any time.
Memories are the important part. Glad you all had a great time.
My kitchen can look like that, since I am single. For fun, I tell people I only have 2 allergies: penicillin and housework! hahaha I think I’d like a hotdog!
Sounds like lots of fun and so worth the mess.
BTW what do you put in your gypsy dinners?
Seasoned hamburger, carrots, potatoes, and onion!
Dirty dishes just means you picked the right priorities. You didn’t miss a thing. Your and awesome lady.
Well, as much as I dis like having a sink full of dishes, I Do like a kitchen sink with a window!
