A year in my life as a Mother, grandmother, quilter, etc.

I don't know how a blog works other than following several of my favorite quilt designers, but I decided to use this method to catalog a year in my life. I have never been one to keep a diary or journal. The closest I ever got was keeping a detailed calendar when I was working.
I have a large family and so once a month we have a birthday dinner for everyone who has a birthday in that month. Because of busy schedules we didn't have an October lunch so this month we have 2 from Oct. and 3 for Nov. My older daughter who is one of the birthdays decided we will have Mexican food for lunch. I got off easy, going to get two rotisserie chickens and will shred, a mixed salad, and avocados. I also provide the paper plates, cups, etc.
I have already taken one grandson and his wife out to dinner. I had such a good time. It is great to visit with your grandchildren as adults and realize you would like them even if they weren't your family.
Will space the rest of the dinners out sometime in the near future. It's really hard having so many birthdays this time of year with all the holidays!
I haven't been at the sewing machine for a couple of days. Decided to really clean my bedrooms. What a chore, but it is all done and it makes me feel really good.
Don't have time to write more. Have to go to the grocery store.
