This Friday, October 14, is my 68th Birthday. Hubs and I are headed Nawth for my 50th High School Reunion to be held the next night at Columbia Country Club (aka High Cotton).
In honor of these events I decided to polish my shoes. These are not my dancing shoes for the dinner/dance those will be gold sandals :) Do you or anyone in your family polish shoes any more? I thought not. My shoe shine kit was inherited from my father who was an impeccable dresser...his shoes were shined and as long as I lived at home he shined mine every Saturday night. I did shine my weejuns in college but I can't remember when I last shined a pair. Hubs occasionally shines his.
Today, Hubs made my Birthday Mud Pie...as you can see I have already had one piece....Yummo.
I don't know what else is in store but I do know he is making the apple caramel bundt cake that was on the cover of Southern Living last month. We are taking it with us Friday on our trip to California. Actually, we are going to California, Maryland to stay with my high school biology partner and her husband. Kathy and Bill have remained great friends and we can't wait to catch up. Bill is even taking Hubs to a Redskins game on Sunday. Kathy and I have some other plans....but I do feel a little sad to miss the Skins. My Uncle and Cousin played in the Redskins band when I was growing up and the team often came to our house after the game. I can still sing the Redskins fight song!
All in all I should have lots to report when I return home. So how do you like to celebrate your b'day?
