September??? When did that happen?

Here it is, September, and I still haven't gotten most of my July projects wrapped up.  I will, however, admit I had a lot of fun stuff happening in August, and the "work" sort of got pushed to the side.
We had a fun-filled weekend in Lena, IL for a long awaited trail riding weekend/camping trip.  I was asked what I'd like for my birthday, and that was my choice of activities.
Dallas, my 4 yr old and I taking a break.

Tyler, my son, and I at supper that evening. 
My son, Tyler decided to drive over from Whitewater and surprise us at the campground by spending the weekend with us.   I was very touched and surprised, he's such a great kid, well, if you can call 23 a kid.
Everyone bought me a little something, which was also a pleasant surprise, but having my good friends around me was enough!  Terry and Rod came all the way from Princeton to have supper with us as well.  And, we had a stow away for the weekend when Terri M. decided to come along and ride my extra horse.  
This was in the top 5 of my best birthdays ever.  
I don't usually post pictures of myself, but since this post involved a birthday theme for me, I decided to make an exception.  So, here I am, Happy Birthday to me.  *grin*  psssst.  As I age, I'm just glad I'm still having birthdays!  It's only a number......right?  :D
As usual, my husband made sure I had the best day he could manage, call me spoiled, because it's true. 
That's all I've got for 
TaTa for now.


  1. Well, Happy Birthday (a little late)! So glad you had such a great day. And remember, having birthdays is always better than the alternative. ;-)

  2. Hi, Kelly!
    Congrats on your birthday! As far as being "spoiled" by hubby?.........It's great!!!!

  3. Thanks Michelle and Lorraine. I am so blessed, and I never, ever....take it for granted. Life is good to me and I'm thankful.


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
