Well most of you nabbed the right answer. I never have taken a bus trip from here to California by myself although it sounds like fun! :o) The rest is all true.

Barn Goddess over at Ramblingsfromthereservation has tagged me for a meme. The way this one works is that I am supposed to state 9 things about me that you wouldn't know and one of them is a lie, can you pick it out?? I'll give the answer in my next post.
This one is hard as I have already done my 100 things about me so I'll have to give this some thought.
1. I constantly leave telephones all over the house. Most of our phones are cordless so when I use them I walk to some other area of the house put them down and forget and leave them there much to the irritation of Husband who can't find a phone when he needs one.
2. I turned 20 in April and got married in May, Husband didn't turn 20 until August so his Mom had to sign for him to get married. I married a younger man! Gasp!
3. I am part Micmac Indian.
4. I once travelled by bus from Maine to California all by myself.
5. I once went para sailing in Bermuda and could see Ross Perot's house from 300 feet up in the sky.
6. My son weighed 10 1/2 pounds when he was born.
7. I live near Stephen King.
8. I lift weights to keep my bones healthy and to retain muscle tone.
9. I would rather ride my horses then just about anything else.
Which one is the lie?????
Now let's see, who can I tag.........how about Myrna at Cherish the Word and Funsize at Holdyourhorsez!

I love purple and yellow mixed together. These will all fill out and be gorgeous in a few weeks with some Miracle Grow added!
These are double buttercups and I love them! Wish they bloomed all summer but it is just for a few weeks in May and early June.
This is one of our flowering crab trees. It is just loaded with blooms this year!How do you like my old cast iron kettle? I found it in an old house and couldn't throw it out! I like things here and there in my garden just to give it a little more interest.
Well I guess that's it for today. I hope you all are enjoying nice weather like we are here in Maine. It is lovely, warm but not hot with a nice breeze. Makes me want to hang something on the clothesline.

Nick worked up a bit of a sweat on the way home, not that it was that hot but he just was having a little separation anxiety being away from his two buddies.We hooked onto the tractor and pulled the trailer around back for the inevitable job of cleaning out the trailer. Now if you have a constipated horse just put him on a trailer and it will immediately clear up! Just ask any one who hauls horses. Not that this information is high on your priority list...
Notice T. didn't want any part of this job but I did recruit Husband to get the power washer out and really get things clean.
My father always said that there were two ends to a horse and you have to take care of both of them. He was right! Anyway I'm glad at least three of my guys are home. The other two will stay at the stable for now as Funsize and I ride with friends up there and don't want to haul back and forth all of the time. Guess I'd better go feed supper, like I said there are two ends to take care of! :0)

YeeHaw! My new look is up and running! (thanks Susie!) I still have some tweaking to do when I figure out how to do it, I hate being so computer challenged! Everyone is going away this weekend due to the holiday so I guess it will have to wait till next week. I always depend on my young nieces to figure these things out for me, they have grown right up with it all so know all the ins and outs.
I gave a yell to Lil' Bud and Justin and they came running up the hill. Notice the Penobscot River in the background.
This is another shot of the Penobscot, it was calm this day so got a good reflection of the houses. We take the horses down there each time we ride and they love it. Sometimes we wear our shorts and take the saddles off and let them really get in and cool off.

These pictures were taken by my sister's friend Lynn who lives down on the coast. I asked her if I could use them on my blog and she graciously gave me permission. I think they are WONDERFUL and wanted to share them with you all. This is the story that she wrote to me about the episode:
These pictures were taken on September 18, 2006 at the Pemaquid Lighthouse. We had gone down there to view the sunset. Unfortunately, there was no sunset!!! From the waterside I took one picture of the lighthouse reflected in a pool of water, walked back up to the high ground, around the backside of the lighthouse as my cousin let out a holler, "There's a moose!!!" Sure enough, on the other side of the fence, over by the restaurant, was a moose. He slowly made his way along the fence, past the picnic tables and around the fence into the lighthouse park area. By this time it was getting quite dark and very difficult to hold a camera and get a perfectly lighted photo without getting everything out of focus. He came across the lawn in front of us and made his way around the lighthouse to the waterside where he made a supper of rose hips. By that time it was getting too dark to try to take any more photos.
She and her husband run a lovely Bed and Breakfast and she has some absolutely gorgeous pictures on her web site so be sure to take the time and log on and take a look at:

Tonight is D's 4th birthday party. I sure don't know where the time has gone! When I look at the picture that I have on my site, and it is my favorite, it just boggles my mind that 4 years have gone by so quickly. I sure hope the next four don't go as fast but I suppose they will.
I have to make fruit dip and bring fruit tonight. This fruit dip is to die for so here is the recipe:
1 large container sour cream
1 small package vanilla INSTANT pudding
4 Tablespoons pineapple juice
Mix all together and refrigerate. I use more pineapple juice then the recipe calls for (probably twice as much at least) as I like a creamier consistency. This stuff is addictive! I use strawberries, bananas, apples, grapes or anything you like.
Well American Idol is on so I suppose I should pay more attention. I thought Blake would have gotten the boot last week but it was Melinda. I like Jordin, for a young lady only 17 years old she certainly has poise and a killer voice. I hope she wins.

In a few days I'm going to be having a new look. We all need a makeover once in awhile and I have been using the generic look so REALLY needed to spruce things up a bit. Susie over at Bluebird Designs is working on my 'look' and from what I have seen so far it's pretty nice! Can't wait!

Makes a lot so is good for pot luck suppers.
We have been having a lot of rain here on the East coast since we got home from vacation. I guess while we were gone it was in the mid 80's and sunny. Oh well, it was that temp where we were too so I'm not complaining. Everything is getting so nice and green and the fire danger is going down daily. I feel bad for Georgia and other places that need the rain so badly with all the fires going on right now.
Well......BOOHOO........snuf snuf..... I didn't win anything in the Organization Makeover competition. Hey I don't care, I am so happy with my new super organized sewing room that I feel like a winner. :) The gal that did win did an amazing job with her scrap booking room, just amazing! If you want to see, hop over to Laura's and take a look. It was great fun and I hope Laura hosts another competition some time soon so I will get another room done.

More vacation pics.
Not being one to turn down a chance to go into a good tourist trap we wandered over to one after having breakfast at IHOP one morning. It was GREAT, had the pj's that I like in all the different Disney characters. Of course I had to get them in Mickey, Tinkerbell and the donkey from one of the Pooh books. (second childhood syndrome)
