I've Been Busy




Hello my friends, I know its Ground hog day but he won't see his shadow here in Alberta for sure.....we haven't seen the sun in weeks. I have been very busy with.... well just with life really.

My friend Jackie is still in hospital, it has been almost a month now and she is growing so weary.....she has been moved from ICU to step down ICU so that is progress in a way. I think I am as anxious for her to come home as she is, I really miss my friend and neighbour.

I received this poem by e-mail and just had to share it with you all.

Cleaning Poem

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess
He asked if I've been "putering"
I had to answer yes
He told me to get off my butt
And tidy up the house
So I started cleaning up
The smudges off my mouse
I wiped and shined the topside
That really did the trick...
I was admiring my good work
I didn't mean to click
But click I did, and oops - I found
A real absorbing site
That I got so into it
I was into it all night

So nothing's changed except my mouse
It's as shiny as the sun
I guess my house will stay a mess
While I sit here on my bum!

"I love my computer because my friends live in it"

Have a great week everyone and thank you all for your prayers for Lisa. My eyes filled with tears when I visited your sites and saw her button, my village is the best.

Good Night and God Bless......and many, many hugs

Hi Bernie
Cheacking in with you early as I have a busy day ahead of me.

It's good to keep busy my friend.
I too have been very busy lately but always find time just for me as I love that quiet time alone!

Hope so much your friend will soon be home from the hospital.

The little poem was so funny!
I do set a time limit on my laptop though since I've come back.
There is just so much to experience of life away from the computer and I do not want to miss it!
But I do enjoy my visits to my blog friends!
But, that is sometimes hard to keep up with.
I'm doing my best though!

Hugs to you!

Margie:)

Wanda said...

You made me smile this morning Bernie, with this cute poem! Friends do live in here don't they!

I hope Jackie is able to come home soon and putting Lisa's button on the sidebar was something I was happy to do, our village is great!

I need to work on another birthday post...hope the villages don't revolt. I could do a little cleaning too!
Love...Wanda

Yes that is how I do my cleaning, mainly around my computer. Loved the poem. I am praying for your friend Jackie and dear Lisa. I just added my dear friend Robert who has been dx'd with Parkinson's. A wonderful couple Donna and Robert, one of our best friends.

Sweetie I so love this poem. It is just as cute as you are. I treasure each post that you write, and sometimes you have me right on the edge of my chair. I can't wait to continue reading.

Thank you for stopping by and signing up for giveaway. I thank you also for your kind comments. I love writing, but you know sometimes you wonder if people get enough from you. I really love my blogger friends. It is like have penpals all over the world, that I can get instant letters from, and prayers when I need them. I just love it here. Thank you for blessing me with your love, and for always being there when I have needed you.

God Bless you sweetie. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Alleluiabelle said...

Hi Dear Friend,

Thank you so much for your sweet and loving comment in the wee hours of this morning. That means so much to me that you are thinking and praying for my sweet sister today. They took her into surgery at 12:16 P.M. this afternoon. I will update on my blog when I hear from my nephew later today. God is Good and I so love my blogging sisters and brothers.

God bless you this day my sweet sister.

Eileen said...

'So sorry about your friend Jackie. I hope things turn around for her soon, I'll keep her in my prayers.


That poem reminds me of me! Once I am on here I can kiss the day good-bye! Between blogging and Facebook (which has now become my main form of communication with extended family! And they got me into this Farmville game which has become an addiction.), I get nothing done! It's funny, just these few days away from blogging have been productive, but still lots more to do!

Love to you,
Eileen

Bernie said...

Eileen, my nieces and sisters wanted me join farmville but I just had to say no....spend enough time on the computer as it is.
I prefer blogging to FB but it really does help to keep up with family......:-) hugs

Ladybird World Mother said...

Lovely poem!! Visiting you from Jeff's...it feels a bit like coming home, visiting your blog. Never made to feel so welcome on a blog... ever!! Will be back. Do feel free to drop into mine whenever you feel like a cup of tea, or just to put your feet up... see you soon.

Bernie said...

Ladybird, thank you for your visit and you are always welcome here. I will be over to visit soon....Hugs

Hi Cheryl, I am staying warm sweetie, I am just waiting for the snow to melt. I hope you have a great weekend.....:-) Hugs

The Retired One said...

Bernie,
Good to know you are okay..I have been at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota all week with my friend who is getting radiation and chemo. I miss my husband, but she needs my support...and I love her dearly...
I have really been behind in blog reading because of being gone. I have my computer with me,but of course very little time. Take care..miss you!

Bernie said...

Joan, I think what you are doing is wonderful, supporting your friend at this time.
I hope you are not over tired, I'm sure your husband misses you as well.......:-) Hugs

Doctor FTSE said...

That's the trouble with housework. You do it today so you do it again tomorrow. Yet you make this amusing and apposite poem out of it!

Thanks again for your comment on my 55 fiction. :)

Jerelene said...

That is such a cute poem...and boy is it true. It really does take time out from our days...but I've been trying to limit myself...it's so hard :)
I posted about pen-paling.. I paired you up with Eileen for this time. Next month I want to pen-pal with you :)
Hugs to you Bernie!!
Love, Jerelene

Bernie said...

Hi Jerelene, thanks for letting me know.....I still can't open your blog (I did the other night but tried just now and couldn't)
Hope you are well...hugs to Sam:-)

Snowbrush said...

A happy weekend to you too. Next time you buy a mouse, buy a black mouse, and you won't even have to clean that.

Bernie said...

Doctor FTSE, welcome to my blog.
I really enjoyed yours and jinsky's 55.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Snow, when I'm due for a new mouse it will definitely be black.

Tranquility Speaks said...

OMG What happened to our Jackie? I visited her blog, but I don't see the place to leave comments. What's wrong?

Bernie said...

Stillness, Jackie has been really busy lately and in order for her to catch with everything she has turned her comments off....she will keep posting and reading our post and will be back to comments when she can.
I know it is a strange feeling not being able to talk with her, she is doing the best she can.
Luv you.......:-) Hugs

Tranquility Speaks said...

Alright, but why did she have to be admitted to the ICU!! That spooks me out! I hope she is better now..

P.S I slept very well yesterday, Thank you! I wonder what'd have happened to me, had there been no weekends!

Bernie said...

Stillness, my friend has a lung disease (can't spell it) but her lungs are becoming very hard, there is no cure for it. It is very sad as she is only 54 and her daughters are 23 and 21. Her prognosis is not very good.

So glad you got some sleep my friend.....luv you....:-) Hugs
