On the Grill

Today I was the Grilled Grandma on the blog, Grandma's Briefs.  You can check out my adorable grand children there, and you can check out Lisa's blog.

My brother has been here for the past three days and has put in two new windows on the north facing wall of the house and has replaced the back door frame and rehung the old door.  Nice to have that talent available in the family.  Now I will have to do a spot of painting and I sincerely hope that will be it for home repairs this season.  That's what the budget says, anyway.

Tomorrow is my brother's birthday and my sister, other brother, and our spouses are taking him out for lunch.  He'd rather go golfing, but the links are way too wet.  It's a big O birthday so that deserves a bit of extra attention.  Of course my sister, being the baby of the family, can get away with making jokes about old age, but, since I am the oldest,  I am pretty much required to be nice about it.

  3. My brother is a Washington attorney, which means he isn't good for much of anything at all.

  4. Windows may not make the house, but they certainly open it up and add some magic space to it!
