It Was A Busy Summer!

Hi Everyone,
I have come back yet once again.
Lately I have really been feeling the urge to
sit back and write again.
So what has been going on,
I just turned 50 years old.
I feel like it is an exciting time in my life,
I need no approval from anyone,
that is a great feeling, because I had really felt that
most of my life.
So what does this mean...maybe I have grown up.
I have gone through a real spiritual growth period for me,
I guess losing people that you care for
will do that.
It makes one realize that all of the little things
that one tends to fret or worry about,
is not necessary nor is it healthy.
One needs to live their live and enjoy it
the best they can by surrounding 
yourself with people you love, and those that love you back.
If someone sucks the life out of you,
probably not someone you need in your life.
So during this growing period
I went and stayed at my sisters
and spent a lot of time in the yard
which is beautiful I must say.
My sister and I made our way down 
by the flooding where we used to walk the dogs,
It was truly amazing to see how the river had changed.
The huge trees that were ripped from the ground, and the piles of rocks
that had changed how things looked before.
You could still see how far the water had made it up on the banks.
Absolutely Amazing!
I had a lot of fun with my little Mom,
She can be so much fun.
We can laugh and laugh until we cry.
Mom, my  sister a friend  and I all went to see a 
Tribute to Johnny Cash..
Not sure why this picture loaded sideways.
He was awesome, I was surprised at how many songs
I knew. I love watching my Mom. She just loves
music and sings and sings and has so much fun.
I have fun just watching her.
The rest of the summer was spent at home,
getting a puppy
His name is Benney and he is A beautiful dog,
that tears up anything plastic, 
and has more energy than any other dog I have ever had.
He is enrolled in Feisty Fido classes.
At night we can bring him in the house,
He will go to sleep say ten o'clock and will
sleep until noon the next day...
But once his feet hit the ground
he is all energy,
so you see I have had a busy summer.
I have missed all of you and visiting your blogs.
I have been on facebook a bit and have
enjoyed that.
It feels good to be back in Blogland
and I hope to touch base in the near future.
Have Your Very Best Day!

  7. Oh, I have a question.
    Do you know I can change my blog to how yours is in replies.
    It's so much easier when you can reply that way.
    I looked under settings to no avail!

    Take good care. xo jj

    1. No he was not a present, but I wore my hubby down to get another dog. he is a year old next month. I think I kind of forgot how much energy a puppy is, but it is the best thing for me. hope your summer was a great one too.
