WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE #404 + A BIRTHDAY

Thank you Joyce.
Join in the fun HERE

1. What's something we'd find you doing most afternoons? 

I'm either on my computer reading blogs or watching a Hallmark recorded movie. 

2. Who do you take after? In what way(s)? 

I believe I take after both of my parents. They both had beautiful hearts. I look more like my mom but I have my dad's peanut's in a shell looking toes and veins that you can see you your hands. 

3. 'After every storm comes a rainbow' or 'the calm before the storm'...which phrase do you relate to more right now? Tell us why? 

I'm not sure if I relate to either of them right now or possibly I experience both all the time. I love a rainbow after a storm and I'm not just talking about a real rainbow. 

I would say the calm before the storm is how I feel most days waiting for something to happen. Not a fan of that! 

4.What are your plans for the day after tomorrow? 

I have no plans. It would be nice to visit with the kids but we are expecting rain and that doesn't work so well with social distancing outside. After their pergola cover outside by the BBQ and eating area is done we won't have to worry about that. 

Otherwise it's the same old same old covid stuck in the house day for us. 

5. Complete this sentence-"After all is said and done_____________________."

"I pray we can go back to a normal life, however I think that is a pipe dream for now" 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Wishing our son Adam a Happy 42nd Birthday! We are so very proud of him. He is so full of love and is a wonderful husband to Gabby and an amazing father to James. I wish him love, great health and happiness for the rest of his life. We love you Adam.....Love, Mom and Dad
These two are not from Saturday's celebration but  are favorites of mine. 

Trying to blow out a candle with a mask on! 

We celebrated Adam's birthday on Saturday evening. We had the most delicious meal delivered. I'm hoping we will get that again for Gabby's birthday in February. I'm sure they won't mind. They suggested it and we paid for it!

Happy birthday to Adam! How cute trying to blow out the candle with a mask on :)

I think I'm going with calm before the storm too; not sure what the storm is going to be but I feel there will be a storm and its coming soon.

I bet it is fun to look at James and to see Gabby in him and Adam in him and a touch of you and Mark in there too; just like when you think about what you got from your parents. I know when I see grandson I see son's ears and his toes :)

Have a great day!

Glad you could celebrate with your son.

I wonder if things will ever go back to how it was before.

Sad day today for me tho....

Happy Birthday to your handsome son. (I love the way Gabby looks at him.) I'm so very sad; I agree with Betty, I feel there's a storm coming. I no longer recognize the USA.

Elizabeth "Libby" Day said...

Sweet James sure looks like his handsome Daddy. I can't wait for you to be able to visit with your family without masks. Hopefully one day soon.

Debi said...

Happy birthday Adam! I chuckled over the blowing out the candle with a mask on. When I was making masks someone posted that if you blew as hard as you could through a mask to blow out a candle and you could not blow it out then it was a safe mask.

Ahh...happy birthday to your son. Our oldest son turned 42 on the 19th and our second born son turned 40 on the 16th! Wonderful photos of your loved ones!

Debby,

Rainbows or storms, God is still in control of everything. Darkness, fear, chaos, misery are elements that Satan uses to control our lives. We need to keep our minds in tune to the evil to recognize it for what it is then through prayers and a positive attitude God's light will fill us victoriously casting the shadows from our heart. I got a chuckle out of the birthday boy trying to blow out his candle. Excellent photo op and memory!

Thanks for sharing your answers. I hope when you find time, you'll stop by for a visit with me at Curious as a Cathy!

Happy birthday to Adam! The blowing out of the candle is priceless memory! So glad you could get together and I love the idea of having the food brought in.

Good pictures, glad to see you're all doing well. I know you remember this day well 42 years ago. Take care.

Happy Birthday, late, to Adam.

My answer to #1 is boring - if it's a weekday afternoon, I'm working.
