Have a great New Year

2017 has been quite a year for me I’ve had to realize that somethings in life change and are never the same again.

When you surround yourself with positive, caring and loving people your life will always be better.

Most of all I have had some really big obstacles to overcome that I have not blogged about yet but I will be blogging about them soon.

I have a great outlook on life and the future and I hope I can inspire others to do the same. We have to live each day to it’s fullest and never let anyone drag you down.

Happy New Years everyone and may this year be bright and wonderful for us all.

Happy Thanksgiving

Today we give thanks.

I am grateful for my husband, our home, and our family that chooses to be in our lives.

I am grateful to our close friends.

As you get older you will notice your inner circle gets smaller but those in it are more special than ever.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone please stay safe on the roads and have a great weekend.

Thirty nine years

Today 39 – years ago my husband and I were married.

We have raised four children, two boys, and two girls.

We have seven grandchildren. Two boys and five girls.

Life moved along so fast with the children and we were busy all the time with their activities. Sometimes it felt like there was no time to even breathe.

I love our life, our home and the time we have spent together. I love our projects we tackle that keep us so busy and challenge us.

The last anniversary picture I did was at 35 years so I might do another one.

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband I love you forever and always.

Daisy dog

Daisy wanted to pop in and say HEY.

She has had a tough time playing fetch this summer in the heat and we always play in the early morning or later afternoon.

Since it has cooled off some she wants to play all day long.

When she gets hot she goes and gets in her pool to cool off. If she needs a break she will go fetch her ball and then lay under a tree across the backyard. When she is ready to go again she comes running.

She is always cooperative for a picture even if she wants to play fetch at the time.

I love my Daisy girl.

Dancing Goat’s

I was able to get a few more goat pictures but they were not being very cooperative. When the goats get let out of their pen they have one thing on their mind and that is eating.

Some of the goats I have shown you before and others are new to the blog.

The black goat that has the white spots name is Valentine she was just bred for the first time.

The white goat that has the black spots is named Boney she is older and has had babies a few times before but is a good milker.  She too was just bred.

Clover is the brownest one with black and some white.

Buttercup is brown and white but has quite a bit of white. She is also the one standing by herself in the picture. I love the expression on her face it was like she was talking lol.

Clover and Buttercup will not be bred until the spring.

It appears that the goats were dancing in these pictures when all they were really doing was trying to reach the leaves on the cypress tree.

As you can tell these goats are well-fed thanks to buttercup showing off her pot belly.

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my dad’s birthday he would have been 78 – years old.

He passed away September 1, 2014 – 3 years ago from esophageal cancer right before he would have been 75.

I think the hardest part of my dad dying was that I replay our last conversations over and over in my head.

I have put the pieces together of EVERYTHING he was trying to tell me. My dad was trying to warn me what would happen when he was gone he was trying to prepare me for it. Nothing could ever prepare me for what has happened.

Happy Birthday, DAD, I love you and miss you.
