Warm Rain

Hello my friends, another good day today. We had a cloudy day, warm and it rained off and on.

I had many errands to do today so my day was full and productive just the way I like them. My morning started early, shower, hair and make up. After breakfast I caught up a bit on my computer projects. Then I met a friend for lunch. We ate at the Tea House here in Morinville where they make the best Cream of Broccoli soup and biscuits ever. It was nice to laugh and I so enjoyed her company.

Later I had to go to the bank, bought groceries, went to the dry cleaners, hardware store and the post office. I was out for almost 4 hours and was quite tired when I got home. I managed to put everything away and sat down to watched the end of the ball game.......did I tell you I am a Yankee fan, well they lost today but that's okay tomorrow is another day.

I received 2 cards and a letter today in the mail. I am really enjoying receiving hand written letters and cards. I had just come from the post office where I had mailed 2 cards and a parcel.....thank you Jackie, so loved your card.

It is amazing the little things that are neglected when one gets ill. I think it will take me a couple of more days to get everything done that needs doing. Oh but it is so good to have the energy and feel well enough to do them. Life is good.

I hope you all had a wonderful day, and an even better day tomorrow.

Good Night and God Bless and many, many hugs...........:-)

Bernie - so glad your happy days are continuing. You achieved quite a lot today, didn't you? Don't rush to do everything too soon; just relax and appreciate your wellness and the blessings that come with it.

Warm hugs.

Bernie, it sounds like you had a much better day today. I'm so very happy to hear that. Lunch with a friend...soup...shopping...and a Yankees game on TV. Rest well, my friend.
Love,
Jackie

Knowing you Bernie, the neglected things will be neglected no more. It's wonderful to feel your cheerfulness now. Have a great day.

Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie...
So you have been out running errands in the 'warm' rain...it just might be cooler here than there! I think it was even colder at Marcy's yesterday. We're still winterizing around here, putting hammocks and other things of that nature away.

I'm having homemade cream of celery soup and buttermilk biscuits today Bernie, I'll think of you at lunch. Hope you have another pleasant day to enjoy!

Luv and Smiles,
Wanda
P.S. It's so good that you are feeling better these days Bernie!

Gail said...

HI BERNIE-
Your day was wonderful - :-) I am thrilled for you. You do get a lot of things done. I admire that. Your lunch sounded comforting, very comforting.

My husband is off from work on Tuesdays and Wednesdays - it is 'our weekend'. We are going to take a drive north to Brattleboro Vermont!! And go to some country shops and have lunch in a little quaint restaurant along the way. :-)

Tomorrow? Stripping wall paper and painting our dining room!!!

Have a beautiful day my friend

Love Gail
peace.....

So glad you're feeling better! Doesn't it feel good, at the end of the day, to see how much you accomplished? I sometimes make a 'to do' list AFTER I've done everything, so that I can see in writing what I did, and put check marks beside them all so I can pat myself on the back for a job well done!

Hi Bernie
Gosh, sounds like you had quite a busy day .... I can imagine you were tired after all those errands.

But having the lunch with your friend at the Tea House must have been very nice .... today I am meeting a friend for lunch that I have not seen in a while and I am really looking forward to being with her.
She has had some hard times lately so I am going to treat her.

So, you are a big Yankees fan .... I like them too but for me The Rockies are the best.
I was so sad when The phillies beat them and they are out of it now.

Hope you keep that good energy going today and have a wonderful day.

I'm off on a walk with Jake now.

A hug for you, my friend!

Margie:)

cinner said...

That is fabulous about the mail. And I agree don't overdo it Bernie, little by little. I awoke with some energy today so I am glad to do a few things as well.Take care,

Diana said...

Good Morning Bernie,
Well it's sounds like someone had a pleasant day! I absolutely adore cream of broccoli soup. So glad that you were able to get out with a friend for some conversation. I so could use that myself right now!
A Yankee fan! I was a Cubs fan for years but sort of lost interest.
Love Di

Bernie said...

Rebecca said...

It's fine to re-enter slowly, Bernie. I'm kind of doing that after vacation myself. Didn't realize how "laid back" we'd been last week! The sun is bright and shining. It wasn't warm outside, but not as cold as we've had it...I walked to the post office to mail a letter to our grandsons and stopped in at a little shop just up the street to visit with the shopkeeper & friend. Actually, she's closed her shop but has an on-going family garage sale in an attempt to make ends meet. I admire her for doing what "has to be done."

I'm praying for full health and energy to be returning to you in the next few days as I move on to check a couple more blogs.

Bernie said...

Jackie, one of my favorite things to do is have lunch with a friend. I am well thank God.....:-) Hugs

The Retired One said...

Yum. Broccoli soup and biscuits sounds delightful!!
It has been a little rainy here off and on today too...saw some purple finches at the feeders today as they fly through our area to go south. All our leaves are practically blown off or turned brown now and so it is looking barren! I still have to post some of our color from before here on my blog, but it in person, now: we are over he color season. Sigh. Now for cold winter to settle in. I may have to schedule our trip to Florida a little earlier. Take care and keep getting better. You are in my thoughts, as always!

The soup does sounds good. I made a pretty good cauliflower soup this week. I'll make another soon because I have some Swiss cheese left.

I love to watch golf on TV. I like to watch championship games or world series. Don't follow the normal season. So glad you are feeling better.
