Hiking at Blendon Woods

My friend and I walked today at Blendon Woods.  It was hot, but not humid.  It was a beautiful trail, and most of it was shaded.  It was GREAT!

Cactus Flower!

When I was in Nashville for my birthday, my best friend gave me a piece off of a cactus.  I came home and "stuck" it in a pot.  Viola`!  I noticed yesterday that it is getting ready to bloom!!  How beautiful!!

Hines Wins DWTS !!

Yaaaay Hines Ward and Kym Johnson!!!  What an awesome job on Dancing With the Stars!!  This was the first season that I watched every single show!  (I even have kept the recordings every week on DVR, so that I can now start watching the re-runs!!). 

I was so excited last night after they announced the winner, that I went to bed and dreamed that Hines and Kym came to my home after the show and had dinner with me and my family!!  How funny!!
