A week of little to write about
Saturday afternoon was the annual picnic at church and again the weather was perfect. I had a nice time, visiting with friends. Yesterday I noticed no one had signed up yet for coffee hour after church on Sunday, Sep. 10th, so I did. Annie worked pretty hard to get the coffee hour started again there and I sure want to do whatever I can to keep it going. That Sunday fits right in the middle of three family birthdays, so I'll buy a cake at Costco for the occasion. My older son, who's birthday is the first of the three, will be out at sea but the next one is mine and I hope my soon to be six year old grand daughter will come up and join me for the occasion.
There was a chance to maybe get together yesterday with a couple of Blogger friends from Whidbey Island for mochas but it turns out that later will work better. I had hoped to take some photos but that will also have to wait.
I did manage to go on the walk with the men from my park all three times last week. They walk three miles to the hospital and back, stopping for coffee while there, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. I plan to go again on another walk in a few minutes, this morning. I need the exercise. I bought a cookbook and am starting to look into cooking some things rather than eating out most of the time. I have a couple of friends, including SW, who have offered to be my cooking teacher/advisors so maybe I'll get beyond being able only to cook Papa Murphy's pizza and Nalley's chilli.
This is looking like a busier week with other activities including some with picture opportunities so maybe I'll find it easier to write here during the week. In the meantime I have been enjoying reading blogs of online friends. Keep up the good work!
But then, I'm the lady that has to explain who Mae West was to fabric store clerks older than I am. (Not that Mae West is concurrent with Laugh In.)
I am sure Annie appreciates you keeping up with coffee hour.
Why do they walk to the hospital, are they visiting somebody there?
So you will be getting better next week, that is what I say about birthdays after
a certain age. Just enjoy it. Take care and Hope all goes well with you this week.
Dorothy, it's on the 10th.
Susan, it is good pizza but their size names don't make a lot of sense. A large is really a medium while a family size is really a large. The hospital is a convenient distance, about 1 1/2 miles. We go to the cafeteria for 50-cent coffee & BSing for about 40 min, then walk back. About an hour 40 min all together.
Ms Vickie, I no longer have birthdays. I just celebrate whatever anniversary it happens to be of my 35th birthday.
I love Laugh-In.
Good Night, Dick. ;D
My sister-in-law was finally put to rest. Cremation took place yesterday. It was a very painful moment for all of us as she was loved by the family. However, when one loves someone, she/he must also learn how to let go.
I would also like to thank you for the happy greetings for my new grandson.
I'll be back Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday. As of now, my head seems to be floating on air. I can't seem to find my brains anywhere yet.
Sock it to me!
