The Last Day Of July

I cannot believe its the last day of July.   It feels like yesterday was my glorious 48th birthday.  And August usually follows July.  …  before long it’ll be Christmas.   Wow.  Before August is over,  my son will be a Junior in high school.  My daughter will be a junior in college and my husband & I will be married 25 years.

I always plan to get a lot done during the summer.   Usually I get maybe 1 percent accomplished.  Its ok though. There is a lot I want to do.

Earlier this season,  my daughter and her boyfriend planted some plants for me on the deck.  I’m posting a few more pics here.  They’ve since almost dried up.  It has been so hot here.  Anyway here are a few pics.

Some tomato pics:

We didn’t ‘grow’ these but I thought they were beautiful, anyway.




Sunflowers from a local field….

Our neighbor planted pumpkins!   I can’t wait to get pictures of that!


Happy Birthday To Me!

Happy Birthday to Me!!

I need to change my about page to update my age… whoo hoo.  I am now a ripe old 48.   And I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.   In my head,   I’m still about 32.  In my body, not so much.

I do know some things.   I know that I’ve been married to the most wonderful man for about 25 years.   Were we always wonderful.  No.   Is he wonderful NOW?  Oh yes.      I have two kids who are becoming amazing young adults.

I am blessed and I am thankful.

So now  I need to get my act together and blog some more.   Even if its just for me.
