The Summer of Home ~ Happy Birthday Mr. Wonderful


Rain had been predicted for today but it turned 
out to be a beautiful Spring day so we decided to
take advantage of the lovely weather and head out.


Late last night Brennan came home from
college for the summer and he joined Mr.
Wonderful and I for a day out to celebrate
Mr. W's birthday.  We went to a few local
Farmer's Markets.


It is so early in the season, there was little
produce available, only some asparagus and
rhubarb.  But there were many other vendors,
we got some citronella solid perfume to try to
help keep the mosquitoes off our skin, some 
local honey, homemade dog biscuits, a baking 
mix and a lavender bergamot orange goat's
milk soap that I look forward to using tomorrow.


I guess it's true that goats will try to 
eat anything.

We then went out for a lovely lunch at
our favorite Mediterranean restaurant 
and Mr. W was surprised with a birthday
baklava dessert.


Wonderful got a new grill for his birthday.
We had to fire it up for dinner.


We dined on the deck, we had Adana kebabs,
veggie kebabs and Shepherd's salad.


And finished the night with cake, singing
and presents at G&T's.

It was a perfect day at our American Homestead.
We miss you Katie!!!!
