Goodness I just finished visiting.  Took me forever…..  I have to tell you all cause it’s crazy.  I opened all the windows when I got up this morning.  We keep the AC set at 70 over night so when I turned it off and opened the windows it was 70.  I just looked and at 11 am it is 69!!!!  It went down a degree.  Whoo hooo.

Then I was just at the bottom of my page and I am freaked out.  There is only one week and six days until my 25th birthday.  Weird.

Okay sorry

Off to clean and just enjoy this beautiful day.


Good Morning Xangaland!

I am still feeling a bit sick but I am doing better.  Thank you so much for all your get well wishes.

First thing is first!!

Happy Birthday Aunt Susan!!!

Or as you all know here Sulimb

Just click on the happy birthday above to go to her site and wish her a happy day.




Okay I promised pictures of my trip to Payson.  It was absolutely beautiful!

Here is a picture of Emily next to a little waterfall.

The creek

Emily’s mother Donna. 

A hidden part of the creek under a cliff.  Moses is the dog in the foreground.

More of the hidden creek.

Me at the mouth of the spring.

The willow trees in Donna’s backyard.

The view upriver from their cabin.


Not too much going on around here.  Some things are finally happening with Ryan’s retraining package but nothing solid.  As soon as I have NEWS I will let you all know.  For now we are just waiting.

Tonight we are celebrating Yom Kippur at my In laws’ house.  Should be a good night.  Everyone is going to be there again.

It has been so beautiful the last few days.  I have had the windows open and I am just enjoying the fresh air.  I don’t know if it will last but it is so beautiful.

I am going to try to come around and visit everyone.

If you all have a minute visit my husband Ryan’s site, HisGateKeeper, and my brother-in-law, Zach’s site, Rock4theRock, they have both updated them in the last few days and they look cool if I do say so myself.

Song of the day? The Secret Wedding from Braveheart.

Uh, no, I haven’t spent nearly enough time up there! I want to go again with the newly improved Sammy. He obeys so well now that I could see letting him run with joyful abandon in the creek. That’s it, I’ve got to have me a road trip. Hum, whatcha doin’ next week? LOL Just kidding, but not really! Love to you, Me

  5. I will be 25 in a few months and it is already setting in…. so I know how you feel!!  My husband is 25 and when he turned it, I gave him a really hard time.  I feel like payback is close at hand
