Hello my friends, hope you all had a good day. (Sorry Joan, I read what you went through) but I know you made the best of it my friend. It is very cold here and it rained most of the day. Great for the farmers but is really playing havoc with my arthritis. I am a bit concerned we may get frost tonight, I had to turn my furnace on today as the house felt really cold.
Thank you all for your prayers for Allan and Peg. They worked, Allan is still in ICU but they have taken him off the respirator and he is breathing really well on his own. I do believe prayers work!
I watched the French Open Tennis Semi-finals this morning and oh what a great match. Anyway Roger Federar won in 5 sets. I really enjoyed this and was so involved watching it that I forgot about my aches and pains. Love it.
As soon as the Tennis was over I headed for Curves and my workout. I am catching on to the machines and how to work them so I enjoyed my work out even more today. The supervisor who has corrected me throughout the week when I was doing an exercise wrong was even impressed with my work out today. Sometimes "things" just click as it did for me today
When I finished at Curves I went to Tim's drive through I got a coffee and bagel to bring home to enjoy. It was raining very hard, so as soon as I came in I lit a fire in my over used fireplace (sound familiar Barb) and enjoyed my coffee and toasted bagel gazing at my fire.
I then read my newspaper and talked to Terry for half an hour when she called to inform me about Allan. I could feel her relief and could tell she was feeling more positive about the situation today.
Did any of you see on the news today the story of a 4th grader attending her last day of school and looked up to see her Dad at the door, who had just arrived home from Iraq? The little girl started crying and shaking as she made her way to her dad and he was crying as he held out his arms to her. I sat here with tears streaming down my face, happy tears to see a family united again. I pray he will not have to go back so he can stay with the family who loves him so much.
My flowers look so bright and fresh as I checked them today, the rain has done them good......hopefully no frost
For supper I had salad, and heated up the rest of my meatloaf. I have set a goal to loose 2 pounds a week and I made my goal for this week today. I am very pleased, but I never did have a problem losing weight it's keeping it off that has always been my downfall. I find it easy when I set a goal and am motivated knowing I am going home mid July to see family and old friends.
Just a quiet relaxing day for me, a day I have used to recharge and enjoy the luxurly of having the choice to sit home by the fire with a good book. I am truly blessed.
Off to read favorite bolgs and comments..........Have a great weekend my friends,
Good Night and God Bless.....:-)
