Like I need an excuse to eat cake...

I didn't feel any different when I woke up this morning, but according to the calender I'm now 42.

Funny..... this one kinda crept up on me. Do birthdays get sneakier the more you have of them? Hmmm...
Oh well, there aren't any wrinkles a little piece of cake won't smooth over.   :)

I'll be spending the day drying some apples and cleaning up my sewing room... as for a celebration, that will have to wait until tomorrow- Hubby is taking off from work and we're taking a little day trip with Lily to enjoy the fall colors and do some shopping along the way.

Speaking of Lily, I think she's finally recovered from her Birthday celebration a couple of weekends ago... Here is a picture of her right before her big night began-

The tiara didn't even make it to the car, but once we got into town she had a couple of chicken nuggets from Chik-Fil-A, her favorite restaurant.... (okay, actually it's mine but I'm pretty sure she likes it too...)
And gots lots of love and affection from everybody in the pet store plus two new toys, so it was a pretty big night for a 1-year-old.

I'll be back next week- have a great weekend, everybody!


  1. Have a wonderful Birthday Paula and YES, they sure do get sneakier every year!!! I LOVE the princess in her tiara, LOL, looks like she had a wonderful birthday as well;) ENJOY!!!

  13. Happy Birthday! You're just a girl, compared to me ;) I guess birthdays come faster; I know the months sail by so fast now. I feel like I'm grasping the tail of a kite to hang on.

  14. Aw, Happy Birthday Paula! Wish I was still 42 - so don't complain!

    I think Lily needs a bag to go with that tiara!!!

    Have fun on your trip!

  15. Happy Birthday, Paula:) Have a wonderful celebration day tomorrow. I love your thinking--cake can help smooth out wrinkles, LOL!

  16. oh, happy birthday to you!!! 42? you're a baby, paula! i turned 48 this year and just wish i could roll back to 42 and work on my body from that point until now! ha!

  17. Just like Ronnie Milsap sings,
    Happy, happy birthday Baby!
    Hope you could hear me singing from Iowa. Also hope Ronnie didn't hear me killing one his songs.
    42, huh? You are a baby. I could have been your babysitter!Lordy, I am getting old!

  21. Oh happy birthday, Paula! They do sneak up on you! You make 42 look good though! And I like your philosophy - cake smoothing out wrinkles. Hmm...thanks for giving me an excuse to bake a cake! :)

    Hugs and Blessings on your birthday and for a prosperous and happy year!


  22. Happy Birthday Paula, hope it was a good one. Today happens to be my hubby's birthday as well. The difference being he's 64..which is olderrrr than me.. hehehe. I told him this morning, that just because I've got more gray doesn't mean that I'm older.. Enjoy!!

  23. Happy Happy Birthday. 42 sounds like a wonderful age.

  24. Happy Birthday Paula ! Hope you have a wonderful time tomorrow on your Birthday Outing!!

  25. Happee Birthday!! Whooooaaaa
    Benny & Lily

  26. Dear Lily - the tiara is just really YOU.

  27. Is Lily already one?!? That girl can surely sport a tiara like no other.
    Happy Birthday tooooo YOUuUUUUU!!!!!!

  28. Pretty cute, and i never need an excuse to eat anything!. Richard

  29. I'll be turning 60 soon and am NOT happy about it!!!! Hope you have a wonderful birthday. 42 is still a GREAT age, and still YOUNG, so celebrate BIG! The puppy is cute in her tiara!

  30. Happy you and to her! Sounds like a fun day and I am sure that taking her along brings lots of people to talk to cute! :D

  31. Happy Birthday! I hope your day was a good one.

  32. Happy B-DAY; may God bless you with many more!

  33. A very Happy but belated Birthday wish Paula, I hope you enjoyed the special day with your dh and Lily. As far as birthdays getting sneakier as you get older, yes, they do, so much so that they seem to multiply twice as fast
    I adore Lily, she can visit me anytime.

  34. Happy Birthday to you Paula! Your still a young spring chick! Blessings,Kathleen

  35. I hope you had a very happy birthday, Paula. I love the cute photo of the dog. I hope you enjoyed the drive to see the fall leaves in the mountains.

  36. We celebrate doggy birthdays too... everyone needs to celebrate!
    I think dear Lily, at "one", has more wrinkles than I have at 56 :)
    so sweet!

  37. I would sing but it would crack your computer and I think as I glance over your other post, you dont need anymore trouble.

    Happy Birthday and maybe Miss Lily will lone you her tiara for your celebration.

    Have a wonderful trip and will look forward to seeing your tree pictures.

  38. Dear Paula,

    Happy Birthday to a light in the Farm Blog world. You bless me every time I pass by here. One time I even won a wonderful decorative pumpkin.

    Big hugs on your special day,
