Today is also my daughter, Suzette’s husband Shane Birthday. Knowing he would not love a pink table setting, we planned to do a table outdoors, where dinner was being cooked. Shane was not feeling well, at last minute, he did come. Sorry Shane, we did not set up a table for you!

My daughter Suzette, her husband Shane, their children Hannah and Creighton. Oh that my hubby on the end!

Today At How Sweet The Sound, Beverly Asked The Question:
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I loved this question, for as a young girl, I read novels about the olden days, and how the ladies would have a rose garden and go out and pick flowers for their homes. They would have tea in their parlor, while recieving guest, they would do needle work, knitting, and have a castle wheel just for the parlor to spin on.
I took Vocational Training in Floral Design in School, worked in a Florist for hands on training. I also took a cake decorating class, and helped a caterer on weekends. I sold Home Interior, took a Interior Design Course. I learned to spin on a spinning wheel, knit, needle work, and many other things.
I think during all this time, maybe I was trying to work at being a Lady some day, for that is what I wanted to achive, as a young girl.
I do have my Parlor now, and working on having a Rose Garden.
I wonder have I achieved my dream of being a Lady?
