Birthday thoughts

Wow - today is my 53rd birthday - When did I get so...well...Mature?? My mind tells me I'm still in my 30's but my knees tell me that is not true.
I awoke early today to a lovely morning. I enjoyed the cool Tennessee morning outside watching the dogs play in the backyard. Then, I got motivated to scoop. Yup, I spent the early hours of my birthday with my new x-large poop scooper cleaning up after our 8 dogs. Most are Cardigan Welsh Corgis, but sometimes I think an elephant or two sneaks into our yard to....ahem.... POOP! By the time I finished the heat and humidity had arrived. I knew it was time to go in when I felt that hot, itchy, prickly feeling on my back. I spent the rest of my day on the couch watching The Closer marathon (don't you just love Kyra Sedgwick) and HGTV Summer Showdown. Well, I tried to watch but I did take a nap or two. A perfect day, with no stress, made even better because today is a holiday meaning I did not have to go to work!
I want to Thank all the folks who sent me Birthday wishes, called or came by. and to my husband, who took me out for the scrumptious brunch yesterday.
See Ya'll.......

Yep, just what every one wants to do on their birthday! Well, maybe not the picking up poop part. And, did your new pooper scooper come with a bow on it? :-)) Glad you had a great birthday.

I missed this on Monday, but Happy Belated Birthday! Sounds relaxing at least and that's never a bad thing. ;)
