Fifty – Nine Years


Today we celebrated my husbands fifty-ninth birthday. We had a nice day together that we also shared with our best friends Bill & Linda. 

The temperature outside was a balmy thirty some odd degrees but the love shared on this day made for a nice warm and cozy day together celebrating my husband. I had so many thoughts and feelings when I woke up this morning, mostly, thankfulness. We decided that we would stay home, I would make a nice dinner and we’d have some birthday cake and that’s exactly what we did and I thought I would share some photos of the day with you. 


New Sig

This is my handsome birthday boy..


A kiss to start the day!


I forgot to take a photo of the dinner we had. I made a nice ham along with some green beans, a salad and some biscuits. I did however take a video of us singing Happy Birthday to my handsome man. Yeah, don’t turn your sound up too loud because we sound like a few suffering cows. What can I tell ya, singing is not our strong suit.

Then it was time to cut the cake ! 


After cake, we, meaning Me, Lou, Bill & Linda decided to take some photos but Bill, our resident comedian decided to goof around. He always makes us laugh.. 


This is myself and my bestie Linda 


And of course even though with time boys turn into men they are still always little boys at heart. They look like two little boys playing in the backyard. Bill is messing around and Lou has this intent look on his face while he’s watching Bill play with my salt and pepper shakers as if they are nine years old again and Lou can’t wait to see what Bill will do next.. LOL

And then it was time to say G’night.



It Makes My Heart Sing…


Yes it makes my heart sing.. What is that you ask? My Bailey….

Bailey is a lhasa apso who is one month shy of his 15th birthday and the light of my life, my missing limb, my heart etc. I could go on and on. Bailey has many health issue’s at this age as you could imagine. At fifteen for a dog it’s likened to a ninety year old person. Bailey is a diabetic, he is blind, has some dementia and some other issues but, we do the best we can. He also sleeps a lot because well, who wouldn’t at his age!

Tonight I decided to go food shopping on the spur of the moment and while there I had to pick up some things for Toby and I wanted to get a new toy also for Matty and Jake as well as Bailey even though I was pretty sure Bailey wouldn’t be interested in it much if at all.



As you can see, I am HAPPY to say I was wrong! Yes I was wrong! Let me shout it from the roof tops! I was wrong. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to be wrong.. LOL…

I opened the toys and the moment heard the squeaker inside he went for it. I couldn’t believe it. And he played with it for a while too!. I’ve always been an easy to please woman. I am far from ‘high maintenance’ so little things this just do it for me,

And THIS? Makes my heart sing!
