We have another busy feast week this week. No guarantees on whether I'll get done all I have planned. Not that I have much planned, but we have a busy week. Saturday we're celebrating the 18th birthday of my first born. Ugh. I can't believe how old that makes me feel. I can't possibly have an 18 year old.
Anyway, we're celebrating Saturday with a psedo-Oktoberfest feast. It's really too late for Oktoberfest, but since my son and many of his friends are German 4 students at the community college, we thought we'd make it a German party. We'll have family and about 10 friends, so it should be a fun celebration -- a big fire outside on a cool fall night and, of course, games inside. I'll have to check into some German tunes.
