Live with Intention

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

"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.

It has been a sad day for Canada. emoticon

    It sure is a crazy world out there. We thought we were immune from stuff like this but I guess it is spreading .
We just have to live our lives in harmony and be the best we can BE.
It is a scary world these days. emoticon emoticon emoticon Pat emoticon

New Refrigerator

Monday, October 20, 2014

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.

    You will love the newer ones I am sure. What did you get. I got the freezer on the bottom so I do not have to lean my back to grab the milk etc.

I wanted a freezer I could squat right down. I open the fridge door about 20 times to going in to the freezer just ONCE !

HUGS Pat in Maine.

ENJOY YOUR NEW FREEZER, emoticon emoticon

The Detroit Free Press Marathon

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Today's blog is not about anything I have done; it is about pride in two of my children.

This morning Hubby and I got up early to drive into Windsor to watch the Detroit Free Press Marathon as the participants made their way down Riverside Drive.

I know this picture isn't very good but the lights show Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor. This was shortly before 7 a.m.

Some of the runners on Riverside Drive in Windsor, Ontario.

#12360 is my son Brian.

My daughter, Kathryn, stopped for a brief visit and stretch.

This is me with my sign, 'Run like you stole something'. Many of the runners responded with smiles and thanks. It was fun.

Detroit in daylight.

On a different subject, I think my husband is finally getting over the flu.

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. emoticon


Happy Birthday

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

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.

Wednesday will be a better day.

    I hope he feels better. Prayers for him and the rest who are now in mourning. Using the fitbit will help you stay focused and "on" so you can support him during this low point.
