Life is Happening

Hello my friends, it has been a few days since I posted, I want you to know I am well, I have just been busy with life.....and enjoying every moment of it.

First I want to tell you all that I spoke with Mrs. Houle's niece on Friday morning and she seemed the lovely woman her Aunt had said she was. She had taken Friday off work and was spending the weekend with her. She told me her Aunt was no longer dizzy and was feeling quite well. I was so happy that she had her niece with and that she was better, I was able to enjoy my weekend with my friend.

We had a wonderful weekend, we shopped all day Friday, picked up one of our other friend's and went out for supper. We had gone to Costco to shop and I had stocked up on many things so it was near 10 before we got home and had everything put away. I now have enough non perishable items to last me until next Spring when we will make out next trip to Costco. Terry and her husband leave next month for Arizona and California for the winter.....they love it, golf almost every day and have many friends there and I miss her terribly when she is gone but am very happy for her and her husband that they get to spend the winter months in a warm climate.

Saturday morning we were up early, out for breakfast and off to do more shopping. Terry had to pick up many supplies for her husband's business. She was driving the truck this trip and we sure had a lot of laughs as she manipulated her way through the busy streets and parking lots of Edmonton.....I know I wouldn't want to have been driving. After shopping we picked up a bottle of wine, invited a friend over and the 3 of us watched a great Curling match and drank wine Saturday night. The fireplace was lovely the game was competitive and the company was wonderful. We were cheering for different teams so it made for a lot of fun.

Sunday morning we were up early again, Terry ate a piece of toast and had a yogurt then left for home.....I went to Mass. Honestly I was so tired after such a busy week that I slept off and on all day yesterday after church. I really needed the rest.

Today I had my hair trimmed, and then prepared for my course tomorrow. I had to read a book and do much paper work which took me most of the afternoon and evening. I have finished it and am well prepared for tomorrow's class.....I hope.

Our weather has been absolutely wonderful, sunny about 25 Fahrenheit today, it has been beautiful for the past few days. I am really enjoying this weather as one never knows when it will abruptly change here on the Prairie....life is so good right now everyone, I am very happy and contented.

I will try and catch up with all my favorite blogs in the next couple of days, I love hearing from all of you, you are the best.....Good Night and God Bless...:-) Hugs

I am glad you had a wonderful weekend.

I am glad Mrs. Houle's feeling better. I have dizzy spells to and they can be a real annoyance.

Your weekend sounded great.

I love Costco. Always spend way too much money. Good, though, for when I'm feeding the crowds as I will be again soon come December.

Sounded like you needed a nap. Aren't those just the best thing sometimes?

cinner said...

Hi Bernie, so glad you had such a good weekend. I am glad Mrs. Houles niece stayed with her, I hate anyone being alone while they are not feeling well. Have a good day at your course. Be well.

RNSANE said...

You certainly deserved a great weekend, Bernie, after your good deeds of last week! Glad you had fun and got to hang out with friends. Hope your team won the curling match but a little wine might have eased the pain if yours was the loser!

Silver said...

Thanks Bernie for your warmth and kind words. I read the post you'd written about that poor 82 yr old lady.. doesn't that just breaks your heart?

love & Hugs,
~Silver

As always, I feel such a peace when I read your blog. I hate to leave it. Everyone needs an angel near them. You are certainly one.
I'm glad that you enjoyed your day yesterday...
Many smiles to you from Jackie

Diana said...

Hi Bernie!
So glad that you were able to have some relaxing ,FUN time. We all need that! And I'm also glad to hear that Mrs. Houles niece was able to come and sit with her. I'm sure that alone helped you to relax! I hope your good week continues.
Love Di

Eileen said...

Wonderful post! You do sound so contented! 'Does my heart good!

I was really happy to hear some good news on that poor woman and I'm so happy she has an advocate in her life. I don't have such a lonesome feeling towards her anymore, I hate thinking of someone like her out there on their own. We all need some kind of support system.

Your weekend sounded like a weekend I would have enjoyed too!
Have a great week, Bernie!
'So good to hear from you!
Love to you!, Eileen

Brenda said...

Every now and then we just need a day to recoup. Sounds like life is good. I would love to watch a curling match sometime with someone who understands what is going on.

Mitzi said...

When going through my blogs, I am always happy when I see yours. Your contented and full life inspire me.

Gail said...

HI BERNIE-

I was happy Mrs Houles niece phoned you so you knew all was well. :-) phew.

Your weekend sounded full and lovely with friends and shopping and dining out. ALl such blessings to behold. Thanks for sharing your blessings - I always feel so good.


Love to you my friend
Gail

Barb said...

Hi Bernie,
I love your post's title! You sound so busy, happy, and contented that it makes me smile. Enjoy your fine weather while it lasts. I'm glad Mrs. Houle has an advocate. Stay healthy, Bernie!

The Retired One said...

Glad you shopped until you dropped, Bernie. ha
I used to have no problem with shopping all day long but now after a few hours my back and feet hurt. A sure sign of aging. LOL
Isn't it fun, though...to spend the day with friends, food and laughter? It really refreshes one's spirit.
I am glad that lady's niece now knows about her Aunt's health problems and now you can rest and not worry about her anymore. Her niece will take care of her now I am sure.
We have had exceptionally nice weather here...NO SNOW...which is shocking for the end of November. The deer hunters here are wishing for snow to track the deer, but I am thrilled not to have it yet. I will be starting Christmas shopping for my grandkids this week because they are coming here for Thanksgiving and I like to have them all wrapped and ready for them to take back with them.
Take Care Bernie, love you!
P.S. expect a surprise in the mail...it is on its way to you!

Wanda said...

Good evening Bernie,
I missed your post this morning, I was up and out very early...like you and Terry I shopped almost all day, stocking up the pantry and freezers for winter at both Meijers and Costco and Like Terry I was driving a truck too!

I knew you were going to be busy with Terry over the weekend and wouldn't be posting. Everytime I sat down to start one, I'd get phone calls or company, mostly it was family or grandchildren keeping me occupied.

It was good to hear Mrs Houle's niece came to be with her and that you had an enjoyable Saturday with friends and a relaxing Sunday to yourself. No one could ask for more! Hope the rest of your week is good Bernie. You so deserve your contentment!

Luv and Smiles,
Wanda

Margie said...

Till I return keep on enjoying life and be happy!

Blessings to you!

Margie:)

We have a lot of frost in the mornings, but the days have been bright and pleasant.

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Dearest Bernie!! You bring enormous smiles to my face today...your joy and delight are simply contagious!!! I am beaming!!! Sounds like you had a delightful day with your friend...and got some much needed rest Sunday afternoon...I think a nap sounds wonderful!!!! And what a good feeling to be caught up on your studies!! A very happy, happy time indeed!!! I'm thrilled for you!!! Love you! Janine XO

Rebecca said...

So glad the niece came through!

That left your mind free to enjoy the time with your friend. It ALL sounded like so much fun. (You needed to store up a lot of good times since she'll be away all winter!) No wonder you were exhausted and able to "sleep it off" Sunday afternoon!

We had some beautiful weather over the weekend, too. And it's already Wednesday - WET Wednesday! Where has the week gone?

Bernie said...

A/C, cooler today but oh so sunny. We are suppose to get snow on Saturday....oh but November has been absolutely lovely....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Janine, I have been feeling good lately and am enjoying the lovely weather and good health. So happy you are doing so well...:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Rebecca, I wasn't able to start enjoying my weekend until I called and spoke with Mrs. Houle's niece, I did feel so good knowing she was in good hands and not alone.
Our weather has been lovely but it is suppose to snow on Saturday.
.....:-) hugs
