I Love this Day

Yup, it's my birthday and I'm another year older, whoohoo to that. I have no issues of aging, the alternative is the pits. A few wrinkles, some gray that my hairdresser can cover and another year wiser.
I got up today and did this.
I mowed my lawn. Good lord it is big.
So then I could do this, guilt free!  This is a customer quilt, all her dh's Harley Davidson t-shirts.  It's a fantastic quilt. Oh, did I say quilt, it's a car cover it's so huge. I hope her hubby is tall!  It was fun to quilt this and see all the places he has been to that have Harley shops.
I have sliding doors that look out from my studio to my back yard, and it just eats at me if my yard needs tending and I'm quilting.
This is why I have a big yard, I have these two who like to run around, lay around and generally just hang out in the back yard.
Playing shy with the camera.
Please, can you get this cat off of me?  hehehe
I love my pets.
Have a great day! Oh, Go Canucks Go.  We are one win away from bringing the Stanley Cup to Vancouver. How exciting.  I'm talking  ice hockey, for those who don't know.

Best Birthday wishes and birthday hugs from cold and rainy Sydney - your sunny yard looks so inviting!
Loved the pics of your pets taking full advantage of the newly mowed grass - such opportunists aren't they? I love my animals as well!

Happy Birthday, Sharon!
Looks like you enjoyed every bit of the day!
I share my birthday with my younger son, so always busy celebrating that day with him.. But mother's day has been my favorite day to work in the yard and start the summer garden.
Your lawn looks beautiful!
