Woke this morning feeling a whole lot better after a really good night of sleep. I didn't cough or sneeze at all last night to disturb my snoozing.
A cloudy morning greeted me at chore time and cooler temperatures,if you can call 76 cooler??
Church was good today, after the service daughter and I went to check on our Bible School decorations. She did a wonderful job getting our room all decorated and ready for tonight.

We came home and had our Low Country Boil for the first time. It was good but I didn't get quite enough Old Bay spice in it. Learn as you go and I'm sure we'll be having it again and again as it was a good one pot lunch.
I also made my famous old cast iron pan peach cobbler for dessert,yum yum !!Don't know what it is about an old cast iron frying pan that just makes things taste better but it does.

After lunch the clouds got thicker and the thunder started but the rain went around us.
Hubbie and daughter went back to church to help with the main VBS decorations and finish our room while I stayed here with g-son.

Today is a significant day for me, July 31,1954 was the day I came into this world.
The first born to older parents ,weighing just a shade over 6 lbs. These pictures were taken when I was about a month old. I haven't been able to find any newer pics so far.
Born to a 53 year old father who was so expecting a boy he turned me into a true tom boy and even nick named me Pete.
My 37 year old mom holds her first born.
Here I am being held by my favorite Aunt, even though she died when I was 5 years old I can still remember the love she had for me and her death took a special person out of my young life.
SO HAPPY 57TH BIRTHDAY TO ME !!!! The kids got me a really nice family tree photo frame,I'll show you when I get all the pictures in it.

In other news of the day, Bible School started tonight. I am helping daughter with a 1st grade class.
Tonight we had 8 in our class until 1 little brother decided to go to his own age class then we had 7. It is a refreshing change for me from the 20 member 4-5 year old class that I have helped with in the past.This was daughter reading today's lesson to the kids. These girls are on the ball and answered all the questions while the boys played around quite a bit as boys will do !I did manage to sneak a peak or two at g-son with his class which again is the biggest there with 21 kids tonight. He looked like he was having a good time.
It was a good start up night.
We even got some rain tonight,don't think it was much but at least it was something.
All in all this has been a wonderful birthday Sunday.
Thanking God for blessing me with 57 wonderful years of His grace.
Good Night and God Bless.
