Another Year Older

I’m still not sure how it happens. It’s like a thief in the night who sneaks in and announces another year has passed. I read once that growing older is like a roll of toilet paper, the older you get the faster it goes. I’m seeing the truth in that silly observation! I’m pretty sure we just did this and yet birthday time found it’s way to me again. I’m just celebrating that while 40 grows ever closer it’s still not here yet!

Yesterday was a great day. Blake took the day off and pampered me with great food, a new mouse for my computer and some wheat to try out my new Wonder Mill grinder. Maybe I’ll even find the energy to try it out this afternoon. Other highlights include my kids letting me sleep in, new earrings from my in-laws, picking my first successful squash from my garden, finding flowers at my door, many fantastic birthday wishes from friends and visits with family on the phone. We also started the day by visiting our newest family addition, Dexter. He’s a tiny little pup that will be ready to come home at the end of January.

  1. Ah….Dexter is soooooo cute!!!!! We are thinking about getting a miniature long haired dachsand later this year 😉

    A lot of excitement around such little balls of fur! 😀

  2. Sounds like a great birthday for you. Your puppy looks cute. More playful than a FurReal pet.

    More messy too! LOL But more fun balances out right?

  3. That puppy is absolutely adorable!

    Happy Belated birthday!
