"Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is."
— Mary Anne Radmacher
The events in Ottawa seem to be affecting me. We were out all morning and didn't hear any news until we stopped for lunch. It wasn't until we were home and turned on the TV that we heard the whole story (as they know it so far).
I have been to the Parliament Buildings. On my very first vacation as a working woman, my uncle took me there to meet our Member of Parliament. I visited again on a couple of other occasions.
My daughter was in the reserves after high school. The young man who was killed was in the reserves.
When I read the quote above I wanted to share the sentiments.
We have been having 'issues' with our refrigerator. We have had a towel on the floor to catch the water that collects there.
This morning we pulled the fridge out from the wall, washed the floor and tried to clean the hose at the back where we think something was clogging and diverting water from where it was supposed to go. We expect it will work for awhile longer but decided to look for a new one.
Tuesday morning a new fridge will be delivered and they will remove the old one. We have had the old one since 1987. The new one will be more energy efficient.
Last night at bedtime we thought Hubby was starting to get better. We were wrong. He got up this morning early after a restless night. He fell asleep on his chair. When he woke up, he was sweating. He has been sleeping a lot today between quick trips to the bathroom.
I left him on his own for the morning. It was my first morning to join the ladies at the hospital who are making Burden Bears and quilts for the new Hospice that is being built. We were finished at noon and I met my girlfriend for lunch.
Right now, Hubby is watching a ballgame. After sleeping so much today, he might not be ready for sleep tonight. Let's hope Thursday is a better day.
Today was my husband's 68th birthday. He did not have a good day. He woke up feeling old partly because he was not feeling well. Before I left for my tai chi class he found out that one of his cousins died last week. When I got home, he was wrapped in a blanket and didn't want much for supper. Fortunately, he says he is now starting to feel better.
This afternoon when I got the mail, my new Fitbit had come in. Let's hope it works the way it is supposed to. I sure have missed my little friend.
