I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 65 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (47 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlins!

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    I think it is in the home page.
    It shows a funnel and you click on it and it opens like a cupboard and there are I think 6 dots to click on. I used the middle one and now I have a nice full screen again.

    I wish they gave us directions. They called it a filter and click the funnel.

    Hi There, Now they are saying a Blizzard. We are ready for it, it is just like winter but it is almost spring. DUH!

    We do not heat the pool, I swam with the kids and as they left home I rarely go in to it. We need some steps to walk in we have always ladders. I am hoping I can find a set of STEPS on Amazon. I will deal with that after Spring is here. We only use it for 3 months but we do not have to MOW!!

    I have three appointments on Wednesday but I cannot cancel them the Hospital has to. I have to go back three times, I prefer to drive home since they are all three of them are 2 HOURS APART.
    Today we have a beautiful day-a bit cold - We shall overcome emoticon

    Hi there, I have left a message for BARB she will be out in the farm and she will call me back. I cannot find the funnel but I know I saw it on one page somewhere. I will love to not have the distractions and then I can concentrate.
    You are in R.I. I have another Spark person from RI. By this late snowfalls are almost the norm. Today is cold but a beautiful sky. Sometimes you know when the snow comes from the south of us the storms will be diverted out to sea at cape Cod. We watched it often on the TV news..
    This one is much more widespread. Our son, DIL and GD were going to Las Vegas where DIL lived there.
    Her Mother is getting married and they were to go on Tuesday and Jet Blue cancelled their flights. They were going on Tuesday and now Thursday and our son has to be home Saturday midnight flight and we will pick him up at the airport.

    BARB called and just put me right and I have no other photos ( I HOPE) Flying by my page. I feel SO CALMER NOW. (((HUGS))) Pat in Maine.
    We have waiting till it begins in DC. emoticon emoticon emoticon
