Queen for a day!

Yesterday was my 40Th Birthday!

It amazes me still, how fast these last 20 years have flown. Will the next 20 go just as fast?

Have I done or accomplished what I want with this life? Are there any regrets? What will I do going forward? Does everyone feel this way at some point?

Just a few of the questions rolling in my head lately.


For my Birthday yesterday Molly had her baby!

I heard some mooing at dawn and went out to investigate. It wasn't Molly creating the ruckus it was Lily (her mother) and I think she was trying to seal the baby - who looked to be maybe 30 minutes old and still wet. Lily didn't end up getting pregnant this time around and really wanted that baby! She was keeping the baby from Molly by continually getting between them both and even going so far as trying to heard the baby off in another direction.

She didn't want to go, but we got Lily moved into another pen, where she mooed nonstop for hours. I was afraid she'd go through the fence a few times, but she finally calmed down.

I think the new baby's name will be Millie.

She looks very healthy and Molly is doing well too.

Also, that dratted Eight ball got out on Friday morning, went to the neighbors house, the neighbor tried to force him back through our fence (what? why didn't they call? the kids and I would have gone to get him), couldn't do that so herded him up onto the road where he was almost hit by a red truck, ran him down our driveway and into the barn where he will now stay till the Hubby repairs the fence and hooks up the new fencer. Which will hopefully be this week some time.

We had some friends over last night for pizza, beer and a bonfire. The kids did a little swimming and frog catching too.

A good time had by all :)

Happy Birthday! Some people don't chase cows on their 40th birthday, but I suppose that just makes YOUR birthday more memorable!

Also, I am 10 years older than you.

Which is totally irrelevant, but I do that a lot.

Happy Birthday! The wine looks like a nice one--first thing I always check out. But, as far as that frog goes, I'd be screaming and running. "Get it off of me, get it off of me." Yes, a sissy all the way.
And, congratulations on the new lovely baby.

Happy Birthday - I just went through the same round of questions because I just turned 50. It's good to question what you are doing and where you are heading. I like to reassess and make goals for myself.

I named the baby! I desided to name her Millie cuz Molly is her momma and Lily is her grandmomma,so out of that I got Millie since its a combination on the two names

Molly+ Lily= Millie
