Tomorrow is Brian’s ninth birthday. We are going to celebrate here. Carrie, Ron and Nicky are coming down. If it doesn’t rain we are going to fry chicken wings outside. If it does rain, than we will fry them in the house. I dread the greasy mess that always happens when we fry. I am also going to braise pork ribs in the oven and make a cheesy potato casserole. We are also having corn on the cob, Italian bean salad, macaroni salad, bruschetta, and of course, cake. Tom purchased an ice cream cake. I wasn’t in the mood to make one. I was busy today with cleaning the house and making the salads and the pork rub then rubbing the ribs down.
Last night at 9 0’clock, Brian said that his teacher said that it was OK if he brought cupcakes into school today to celebrate his birthday. Well, that was a nice time to tell me. I wasn’t about to bake cupcakes at nine at night. At 6 o’clock this morning, Tom went to Wal-mart and picked up 24 cupcakes for the class.
Tomorrow would also have been my mother’s birthday.
