May 17, 2012

It's almost Friday...and my birthday :) Okay, another year gone by, I won't say how old I will be, lol.  On Monday, I got a surprise in the mailbox, a special birthday card from Linda at Parker's Paradise! It really started my week of great and I truly do appreciate her thoughtfulness and kindness, thank you so much Linda!!

Our internet has been crappy all week, since we live in a valley with hills and trees all around us, the reception is getting really bad and we need to get an extension rod put on our t.v. antenna for the reciever for the internet. With all the leaves out on the trees it is getting blocked :( I am actually surprised that I am able to post right now. Mother's Day was lovely, we went shopping for my gifts on Sunday,  I picked out a Hydrangea bush, and an Azalea bush, I want to go back and get a bloomerang lilac bush that flowers all summer long, maybe for my birthday :) The kids picked out some strawberry plants and my son bought a Gay Feather plant with his own money. Hubby bought an apple tree :)  We are hoping to get our veggie garden planted this weekend as it's the May 24 weekend and Monday is a holiday, the weather is supposed to be hot and sunny!!

It's been a pretty good week, the kids want to take me out to dinner tomorrow night for my birthday, it all depends on how late James works, he's been pretty busy and with the long weekend coming up, everyone is going to want their septic and holding tanks done...hopefully he won't get called in over the weekend, lol.

Well, I had better get off of here before my internet goes on me!

Hope you all had a wonderful week!

hugs, Trish


  1. Happy Happy Birthday Sweet Friend
    Hugs & JOY


  2. Happy Birthday Trish. How old did you say you were? Ha Ha.....Just kidding. I think flowers and plants are the best Mother's day gifts. How fun that your kids helped you pick them out. Hope you enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner. -Steph-

  3. Happy Happy birthday Trish. I have one this week too. We will NOT talk about age. I loved the gifts you picked out. They will keep on giving everytime they bloom/

  4. Happy Happy Birthday!! My ! You really got some nice Mother's day gifts!! I've always loved getting plants as gifts because you enjoy them for years. I'm going to have to look for that blooerang lilac--never heard of it, but a long blooming lilac would be so wonderful!! I love gay feathers--my neighbor had a HUGE clump of them and the whole neighborhood enjoyed them for a long time. We just dug out a couple of shrubs that just didn't survive and I'm going looking for azaleas to replace them. Your yard will look so pretty with all the new plants!! Hope you had a wonderful dinner with your family!!--Jan
