I am Now a Sassy Sixty-Seven Year Old Lady!!!

Today is my BIRTHDAY!
 I have had a GOOD day as any birthday is a GOOD day!!
The reason I KNOW I'm SASSY is......

The Ladybug From Texas TOLD me so!!!

I woke up on the shaky, dizzy, wobbly side this morning so I cancelled my lunch plans with a dear Sister September Friend to spend another day resting.
I am enjoying the glider and think I will need to get ANOTHER one for the ranch because I may not be able to part with this one!! I sat in the sun and read for a good while this morning.

I am so happy this little weed ground cover is looking so good and I  love the way it snuggles up next to the patio stones!

I did some very light housework.

See the pretty Trumpet Vine we got? I bought it and Louis Dean planted it and I think it will be just perfect there by that honking big ugly telephone pole! 

My son, Jesse, called me as soon as I got up this morning to wish me a Happy Birthday and told me he was ordering our lunch to be delivered at the time of my choosing!
Louis Dean was SO excited about the Buffalo Wings! He's been on a real kick about them lately.
I had Garlic Knots and Spinach Alfredo Pizza. Let me tell you - it was DELICIOUS!!!

I felt a little stronger as the day went in and I think I am tolerating the medicine better.

Now let me tell you how I spent MOST of this day!!!!

Watching a Mountain Man Marathon!!!!!
Seriously!!! All day long.
It just ended - we had paused the show and then would go do a little something and when it ran out of 'pause' time - we'd run back in there and watch some more.
I am seriously involved with these men and their families!

Tom Oar

Now TOM is my very favorite!!! Probably because he reminds me of my dearly beloved neighbor, Doug Stiegler, who lived next door to me for 17 years along with his lovely wife, Reaoma. She is the dear friend I visit with now that she has moved back to Irving. Doug was so much like Tom! He even looked like him, too. Sadly, Doug has been gone for three years.

Eustace Conway

I really got concerned about this family because they were about to lose their land.
HE reminds me of Louis Dean the way he figures out how to do things!

Marty Meierotto

I sure hope this guy can get home to his wife and daughter up there in Alaska.
I left him stranded in his plane on a frozen river with his landing skis frozen to the ice.

Praise God next week is the Season Fianle and I will be able to find out what happened to everyone!!

I know this sounds like the strangest thing coming from me - but in another life I would have dearly loved to have been a mountain man!!! God would have had to have given me a MUCH stronger and healthier body - but I would have LOVED it!
Did you ever see the movie with Robert Redford, Jeremiah Johnson? It's my favorite movie of all time and it is based on the book by Vardis Fisher.

I don't think I have EVER watched as much TV in one day as I have today!!!
I am feeling better tonight as I write than I have felt in several days!
I think a hot shower and reading in bed is just the way to end what has been a really good birthday!

Thank you for all the emails and Facebook postings!! They have kept a smile on my face all day long!
 I do not know how these clever friends of mine know how to send such creative pretty Happy Birthday Greetings such as I have seen today!!
I love you all and I have so appreciated all the well wishes and prayers!
It's going to be a GREAT year!!!
As someone told me -  I will NEVER be this YOUNG again!!!!

Happy Belated Birthday, Linda! You make 67 look fantastic! So glad that you are feeling a little better. I think delivered lunches and Mountain Men marathons agree with you. (I understand nothing of what you say about this's all NEW to me. LOL! )

Cheapchick said...

Happy Birthday!! I hope you feel well enough soon to have your Mexican Birthday dinner!

Nita said...

I'm happy to hear you're taking care of yourself...we don't mend unless we just be still and rest. It's good for the mind and body ! Glad you had a good birthday. But here's wishing you a very Happy Healthy year !

Susie said...

Happy Birthday Linda. I hope it was a wonderful birthday and that you are feeling so much better. That was a very nice birthday lunch from your son. I like ideas like that. We had friends who planted a trumpet vine against a telephone pole and it grew 30 feet right up the pole. Hope yours does too.
My brother's surgery went well...he had 6 by passes...he will be like a new man , surely. Blessings, love you, xoxo,Susie

Happy Birthday dear.......I hope it's as awesome as you are! I think a Cowboys win this weekend would make a great gift.....:) I lived in Arlington from 1988-1992 and just loved it.

Happy Birthday!!!!!!! So glad to hear that you're feeling better. My husband and I watch Mountain Men together quite a bit too. It's really a good show.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday and are still feeling better.

A very happy and blessed belated happy birthday wish to you! You are truly one of the sassiest seniors I know and you need to get well ASAP and continue on in the sassiness!
I've not ever seen a pink trumpet vine before. And yes, I remember the Jeremiah Johnson movie. Maybe I should put that on my list of movies to watch.
