Happy Birthday Mom!

Today my Mom turns —. Its her special day and she deserves a great big Birthday wish 🙂 My mom is a great lady and a great mom. She always tries to help hubby and I, is there when you need to talk, will lend a helping hand with any project we have around our place, and loves her granddogs 🙂

When I was growing up she always made sure I had many experiences, got to do a lot of what I wanted to, and got to travel a lot. From horses, to sports, travels to Europe, visiting most of the United States, to numerous pets, karate, piano, clarinet, other instruments, and so much more. I got to do a lot and see a lot, but mostly I got to feel loved a lot. See when I did these activates she was right there much of the time traveling with me, watching my sporting events, watching my music recitals, band gigs, or whatever I was involved in at the time. She said “I love you” a lot, gave my hugs and kisses, took good care of me when I was sick, and still kept good boundaries and made me follow the rules so I learned to be responsible, kind, and giving.

So here is to you Mom and Granddogmom 🙂 We all love you and can’t wait to see you very soon 🙂 HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🙂

Honking at me…

Hubby and I were out and I finally had my camera when we went by the train tracks… and a train was coming.TrainI stuck my head out the window to get a good shot and the train conductor gave me a few sounds of his whistle… then he waved 🙂 I couldn’t catch him waving in a picture, but it made me smile. Since I was little I have loved trains and just love to watch them come down the track, imagine what is inside the box cars, and think of where the train is headed.Train tacks

It is a good childhood memory that still gets me excited… every time I see a train coming down the tracks 😉 Where are your tracks leading?

Rainy day…

It’s raining today. I don’t always like rainy Saturday as it usually interferes with what I have to do and I get a major headache from them. Today I am ok with the rain as I need to clean house and get things back in order after our trip. I thought today would be a good one to share some more of my photos from our trip… Hope you enjoy !

I love this tire off a tractor that was getting repainted…

I took this picture as it reminds me of a barn that as a child I would have loved to pop in and out of the windows as a game.

This is one of those lovely evening sky.

This was the large sky I love in this part of the country.

My conference I went to yesterday was long, but very educational. I didn’t get home till 9 PM and was so tired I went to bed. I hope you have a good Saturday!
