And I'm off...

...probably in more ways than one!

This weekend is my birthday. I will be 51 years young! My son is, as I type, driving in from Colorado to spend a long weekend. I am about to hit the road to go to Billings to meet him. We will then go to visit my dad in the nursing home, travel back to Billings for dinner with the cousins and kid cousins.

Saturday, the actual day of my birth, we will spend with dad, my brother, Shasta, the cousins and kid cousins and Sunday we will probably go to a movie or have a picnic by the river if it isn't snowing.
Monday, my son goes back to Colorado and I will come back to Forsyth.

Life's a whirlwind these days and I am loving it.

What are you all doing this weekend?

Happy Birthday, Laurie!

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Have a great time this weekend!

Happy Birthday Laurie! I hope you have a wonderful time with family, especially your son and your Dad.

May the sweet kindness that you show others come back to you in showers!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear Laurie!

I've been wondering about you but I understand the "whirlwind" thing.

So glad Wolf is coming and you'll spend time with Dad and the family.

Have your cake and eat it, too!

Have a wonderful time this weekend!

I will be painting woodwork with my daughter at her house and cleaning mine. (The good and the bad).


Happy 51. I win by a year.

Well, Laurie, you are just a youngster! I have you "beat" by 11 years.
Do enjoy--every year is a gift.
And happy birthday to you (I am a day late, sorry).
October is a good month--my daughter was born today 10/21.

Happy Birthday!

My Mom is 90 years young - still lives alone, goes out every day except Thursday with her friends, drives her car to the market, and enjoys life. She says she is thankful when she wakes up to aches and pains, because if she didn't have aches and pains, she'd be dead.

Age is all in your mind! Enjoy every minute of your birthday celebrations!

Menchie said...
