Happy Birthday to my Sweetie!

I just wanted to start off by saying Happy Birthday to the love of my life. It was 45 years ago today, a baby was born in Perryville, Missouri... He only lived 15 miles away from me but it took 35 years for our paths to cross...

Happy Birthday honey... I love you! Last night I asked him what he wanted for supper and about what kind of cake he would like. I was told he wanted to think about it, so I may be cooking all day. :) That's okay though because its so much more enjoyable when your doing it for those you love.

Yesterday he had me worried. He was in a good mood all day but he was having some issues with balance. Every time he went to stand up or sit down he almost lost his balance. I have noticed this happening a lot more lately and it does worry me. Hopefully we will be able to get him to the doctor for a check-up. He has not been for almost four months now. Say a little prayer if you can.


I spent a few hours Tuesday, organizing photos I had accumulated and burning them to disk. There is always a fear in the back of my mind that I am going to lose them one of these days. I found a lot from when we lived on the farm and caught myself silently crying while I remembered all the good times we had there and the animals I loved and now miss. There were photos from when we first adopted Sasha... boy was she skinny then, and pictures from the last trip I was able to take to California when I stayed with my brother for six weeks. Oh the memories....


Today's Italian phrase is:
Talvolta la vita non 'e giusta.
tahl-volt-ah lah vee-tah non ay jews-tah
Life just isn't fair sometimes.
Its almost kind of funny because I can almost hear my father telling me this during some teenage tantrum I might of thrown growing up. *laughing*
Today its suppose to be warm and sunny again. Yesterday I actually sat on the front porch with my camera taking pictures. I felt like one of the cats basking in the sun. Hopefully today between cooking and baking I can sneak outside to soak up some more of it.
Take Care and Stay warm,


  1. I hope hubby has a great birthday and I hope he is feeling well soon. Thanks for always leaving me such kind comments.


  2. Memories are a wonderful thing but they can put a longing in our hearts can't they? Kind of bittersweet sometimes!
