Google Doodles


I have to own up to being a complete sucker for good marketing.  I am also addicted to the daily Google Doodle and use that as my home page.  When I saw the birthday stuff this morning my first thought was ooh, let's see who famous shares my birthday!  And then I noticed there weren't any of the usual clues to who that would be...so I hovered over it and yep, it was for me (and however many thousands of other people who got the same doodle this morning ;-).  I don't care.  I thought it was fun :-D.

I'm spending the day doing (hopefully) the things I enjoy most.  I "worked sheep" this morning and everyone was in good shape, took some pictures of some of my best friends out doing what they enjoy most.  After I get this posted I'm going to go ride Hickory (in the middle of the morning because it cooled off just for me ;-).  I'm working hard spinning the Renny yarn because I have something special planned for it (and I can't wait to start knitting it!).  Then I might run to town because I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket and go to dinner with some more of my favorite friends.

I feel bad even posting pictures this green and lush (which IS odd for us in late August) with so many of my blog friends in harm's way out west.  We've had a couple years of moderate drought here in the past and while our barns and houses weren't in any much risk of burning down, it was miserable. Hank and his friends have nothing to worry about, and that's the way it should be.  For everyone.







"Come on, Burrnie.  We're getting ready to head back in."


"I'm coming!  Wait for me!!!"

Happy birthday! Sounds like you are having the perfect day. And thanks for the green pictures! They soothe the parched souls of us Californians. We still love to look at green even though we have brown right now on all our hills. We're hoping for a wet El Nino winter.
