Birthday Gifts

The worst part of August is everything drying out and turning brown. But, just when I think all is lost, something always seems to surprise me.

This is the hardest working little rose bush and I don't have a clue how to take care of it, but it always takes care of me. And what a nice surprise on my birthday. Thanks!

For fun, I made and painted a swing to hang out in the barn. I've got some festive yellow rope and Stella's on her way over to help me hang it from the rafters. I looked online for some basic knot tying instructions and think I've got it figured out. If I don't make it to my next birthday, you'll know why.

Hap-bee Birthday to me :-D

Well HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I didn't realize you were an August baby too. Have fun on your swing. Maddie sends you a big hug!

Happy Bee-day to you! Love your swing. I had Mike put one up "for the grandchildren" and every night I go out with Ivy for her bed-time outing and I swing while she finds the perfect spot!
