Happy Birthday from Edwin

Well, my weekend is drawing to a rapid close and yep, it's raining outside. It's been a cold day but no rain till late tonight.
It was Member's Meeting at church, my first one since joining in May. So, it was a long morning at church, finishing up there at 12:45 p.m. I left home about 9.20 a.m. and then called into the supermarket on the way home to pick up some fresh rolls for lunch.
Hubby had not stayed for the meeting and when I got home he was just in the throes of selling our daughter's car. Yeah!!! one less vehicle here but there are still too many! She was happy as he got more than she expected for the car and she can give it to her brother to pay half off  her current vehicle. Laurie bought it a while ago to do up a bit and sold it to her. All the wheelin' and dealin' that goes on with cars and bikes in this family is a marvel.
We had some baked potatoes for tea tonight with sour cream, ham, beetroot and cheese. Yummy! and I haven't done them for quite a while so we all enjoyed them.
I sat down to make something for tonight and had to really rack my brain to come up with an idea.
This is what I made, hope you like it. I was pleased in the end.
