Thursday Thoughts

Remember, "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver."


~Your kids are becoming you . . . . . but your grandchildren are perfect.
~Going out is good . . . . . . . . . . . . . Coming home is better!
~You forget names . . . . . . . . . . . . . .But it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!
~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything . . . especially golf!
~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore!

~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep".
~You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch.
~You tend to use more 4 letter words . . . "what?" .. . . "when?". . . ???
~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.
~You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"!
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
~Everybody whispers.
~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet . . . 2 of which you will never wear.

~ But Old is good in some things, Old Songs, Old Movies, and best of all, OLD FRIENDS.

It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived.

Made a wonderful trade today:

Traded in the boot for this . . .

One boot for two penguins! What a deal!
The fuzzy picture may mean that they are ready to 'waddle' on!

Try It Tuesday

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Meant to try a new recipe today, but was needed to be with the DGDs. Was gone from about 9:30 AM until 2:30PM. So, I am making a breakfast casserole for supper. Hey, that's new for me. Started sneezing and have a sore throat again. Hope it doesn't get any worse.

Tomorrow I go to the ortho to get this foot checked out. Hope I can get out of the boot.

It is cold and rainy here again. We have a coal fire burning and it is keeping things nice.

Didn't get much exercise in today at daughter's. Hope to do some 'inside' walking tonight.

Have a great evening, All!

    My allergies & asthma have been murder this fall. Hope your sneezing & sore throat gets better fast.
Good luck with the ortho doc tomorrow. I know you're anxious to get out of that boot.
There's nothing wrong with a breakfast casserole for supper. It's all good. Kind of mixes things up.
Take care & stay warm & dry!

Follow Through Friday--10/17

WooHoo! Surgery for friend is done. She just called a little bit ago and all went well. She says her husband looks like a load of concern has been lifted from him. After suffering in pain for nine months and seeing and talking to so many different professionals, she finally has relief from the pain! PTL! Thanks to All who lifted up prayers for her.

Project for You Tube is done. Had to prepare a channel to upload it and am hoping to complete it this weekend. So anxious to share this special project with my friends and family. If all goes well, I want to do something with some of the ditties I have written with Spark People 'flavor' to share later on.

Had a bit of a headache most of the day. Think it is connected to some sinus congestion. DH is at work again though his cough is not good. But then, who ever heard of a good cough? LOL

It is late and I have some final posting to do for the challenge so I bid you Good Night!

    You keep teasing us with this project. emoticon

I'll be looking for it once it is finally released.

Hope the two of you get some rest, it's no good to feel so miserable.

So, This is Thursday!

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Time keeps traveling on . . . and on . . .

Felt myself going on an emotional high yesterday and today. Not in a bad way. Yesterday, spent some time on the phone with someone I hadn't spoken to in quite a while. She needed some health counseling and, of course, I offered prayer, too. It concerned a sick child that couldn't find relief from her problem. Called her today and the child seems some better and she will take some advice I had given her to see if it will help also.

Friend facing surgery goes in tomorrow morning and she is at peace with what it about to happen. God has answered quite a few prayers about what is happening and she is at peace. She and her Dr. are confident of the outcome. Remember to say a prayer for her. Every surgery is major!

Worked on a project to post on You Tube today and am anxious to see it done. I am not sure exactly how to finish it, but am hoping it turns out well.

Took two more ticks off April tonight. She stayed in last night, but mostly she wants to stay on the porch where it is cooler.

DH is a little better and went to work today. He spent most of the morning in bed. He got up to eat, watch a little bit of TV, then went back to bed. I am sure it is a long day for him. Hoping he is much better tonight.

Speaking of which, good night, All!

    I think it is really great that you go out of your way to help and offer advice to your friends and family.
I am certain they have grown to rely on you.

You have me curious as to what this youtube project you have been working on is all about?

    Good morning to you. Sounds like a busy day you had and perhaps today will be a bit more calm and that DH got his acquired sleep as you should have as well. have a great day ~ Donna
