Happy Birthday to Me, Today...heeheehee!!

It's going to be a day of "spoiling and cheers, blessings, joy & love"! That's the lovely way Tanya of New Zealand put it and I love it so I borrowed her words from her. I like to post internet blog birthday pics & wishes on this day...

Here's one from Bruce of Michigan...

Thanks for being such a wonderful friend, Bruce!

I've been doing some facebooking lately and have been keeping in touch with my blogging friends this way and it's been fantastic and fun! Thank you to all of you who posted wonderful and beautiful birthday wishes on my facebook wall! I greatly appreciate all of your kind words, wishes and thoughts!

Love, hugs, sunshine, light, joy, blessings, & cheer to All!!,

Medina River Natural Area & Greenway/San Antonio, Tx.!

I went for a walk/hike with my sister down this hike/ bike trail by the Medina River. Upon entering this Natural Areas environment, there was this warning posted, about what we may encounter, that made me think twice about walking through there but we did it anyway and it sure was fun! I happened to have my camera with me so I took photos of the trail. I kind of liked these. Enjoy!

South Padre Island/Summer '09!!

Hey Everyone!

I kind of lost myself in my children's lives and am just starting to focus on me again. Here's a few pics of some of my favorite places to relax and unwind at the island and in the Port Isabel area. I love semi-private areas with not too many people around if possible. Yup, that's my stuff in front of those gorgeous homes and condos. My daughter says she will own her own one day and will invite me over to relax and enjoy it with her! Enjoy!

Countrygirl will be A Birthday Girl this Month!

This is a pic of an Oak tree in my sister's backyard. Recently, at my neice's birthday party in San Antonio, I was just looking up and enjoyed the view and snapped a pic.

I hope it's not too late and I hope I get some responses. In just a few days, I'll be having a birthday on December 30th. Yup, it's that time again. For the past two years, I've put the request out there for some cool pics to be posted on that day for me to admire and appreciate and I received some fantabulous responses. I know this year is a little different because I haven't really blogged or posted much but I still love you guys and I love how you have continued to be so thoughtful and kind even though I haven't had the time that I'd like to post. Think about it. I'd love to see some of your inspirational and gorgeous photos on that day.

This small town countrygirl wishes a very Merry Christmas to everyone in blogland! I hope you had yourselves a very merry little Christmas!

South Padre Bound!!

Yep! Headed south once again! I absolutely love spending the summer at South Padre! In this particular area I was able to see a couple of dolphins cruisin' in and out of the ocean. They were just beautiful!

I'll be trying to teach both of my children how to ride bikes this summer. I'm kind of having a rough time with it. So I could sure use some helpful hints. I haven't been successful in the past but am determined to succeed this time!!

Loads of sunshiny smiles to everyone!

Texas Wildflowers! Hello, SPRING!

Hi! I know I haven't posted in a long while. I enjoyed this trip to San Antonio in March and decided to stop and snap a few photos. These are a few of my favorites from that day. The indian paintbrush and the bluebonnet are a couple of my favorite Texas wildflowers that bloom every year in April and May. I hope every one of my blogging buddies is well!

Sunshine and smiles from Texas!,
