Happy Birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCKY LADY

One year ago today my daughter decided I needed a blog since I could not get around good outside after breaking both my feet. Well not being computer smart I tried under the name "country pictures". I did not know what I was doing, I got upset because I always lost the battles. I deleted all my pictures then after getting bored. I played around changed my name a few times and stuck with Lucky Lady. My goal was to be number one in that top fifty and beat New Yorker whose blog I love, well I finally beat him by one point and I will never figure out how I did that and this month I have been number one and not below number five all month,mission accomplished. Thanks to all of you who have voted for me. Also the fact that a lot of the bloggers have not been on the battle gave me a better chance, now that it's warm outside and I can work in the yard again I will probably not be on as much. Thanks again for a year of fun.

Today I feel very blessed that I am sitting here, twenty one years ago I was scared to death I had cancer and I was going in on ST.Patrick's day for surgery, well I was blessed I came through that and then seven years ago on October 17th I did the same thing again so I can count my blessings so many times I was blessed and I am a survivor.

Red Tree

I leave you tonight with a picture of the most beautiful red tree I have ever seen not sure what kind it is, goodnight all.

I Do

THE YEAR WAS 1977,The day was the 12th, the month was march we said I do in Reno, Nevada our lives have gone through many ups and downs but he was always there to help me get through it all he raised my two children as if they were his own and we had one child together. He is a strong and loving man to see me through cancer twice and all the other mishaps my body has been through, he's the tough one, so on 31st anniversary I want everyone to know life is not a bed roses but if you both of you try hard enough you can get through just about everything together. Thirty-One years later here we are still together.

Blog Your Blessings

I am sure I have many and have been blessed through out my life. Today I have a problem of feeling blessed after all that smoke yesterday I do find it hard to breath but if you look on the bright side I feel blessed that we have land that we grow rice on, not only are we blessed but the people who eat it are blessed that they can afford to buy food and not go hungry so I guess we are all blessed in one way or another, and a very happy Sunday to you my friend may your blessings be many.

Rice Fields

They burned our rice fields today,the north wind was blowing, the smoke is so bad and the house smells like smoke for days,you can only burn so much each year and this is the first time ours was burned in several years, they fill it with water let it rot and plow it under that smells worse then the smoke so I am glad its over fast, now in a few days they will start plowing,it should all be planted by April 15th but sometimes its a little later.

Photo Hunt

Photo Hunt: Different This is different because dogs and cats are not usually best friends, Leo and wildcat live together in the same house it is so much fun to watch them if you are lucky you can see them all curled up inside the house sleeping,everyone has seen that but me and I think its because I always take the camera with me. My first week at photo hunt,this could be fun.

Jake

Jake still feels bad, he goes back to the vet on Friday unless we have to take him back sooner, you can see his eyes that's what poison does to them.

Sunday, March 2, 2008

Baby

I am really sweet but I got in trouble for chasing Jake because he is sick, I sure hope I don't have to take that ugly medicine.

Blog Your Blessings

I know it's Sunday and I know it's blog your blessings but I also also know it is one of the days that i ask how do I feel blessed today and the answer is I am sure, in lots of ways, but I have not figured out yet what it is today. The north wind is blowing fifty miles and hour and I guess it brought out the witch(bitch) in me. Jake is still sick, not really any better. I know there is a lot worse things then my cat being sick but lets say today is feel sorry for me day and its o.k. to that sometimes, so all you people out there have a blessed Sunday and good week ahead do what you can while you can and enjoy each moment because they slip away so fast.
