A Wonderful Day

Hello everyone, I can only hope you all had a wonderful day as I did. I didn't do anything special but I am well rested and watched baseball and hockey most of the day. I love these kind of days. Pain free and relaxed beside the fire.

I woke up to a dusting of snow this morning, it soon melted but they are calling for more snow tonight and tomorrow. Terry is coming in early tomorrow morning as I have several appointments and she is coming with me. Dr. John called early this evening and said so many things that I honestly can't remember our full conversation. Anyway Terry is coming with me tomorrow to see him and between the two of us we will know what this plan and procedure is all about. Will let you know when I fully understand everything....just know I am feeling really well now. Terry will also go with me for my cortisone shots on Friday and I am relieved about that as I have to drive into the city and back, with her doing the driving I will just relax.

I had told you I have been writing to a pen pal in Scotland, he is a friend of my sister's. I am enjoying reviving the lost art of letter writing very much. Thought I would share Tommy's picture with all of you.

My friend, Tommy

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone, Good Night and God Bless....:-) Hugs


Margie said...

Oh, so glad you are feeling really well now Bernie.
That is wonderful!
And glad you had such a good day.
Mine was so very busy and soon as I finish with this comment, I'm off to bed ... I'm so exhausted!

Snow there already, oh, it's like that in Alberta, I forgot!

It will be good to have your friend Terry with you when you see your Dr. tomorrow.

Oh, a dashing pen pal you have from the lovely land of Scotland.
I think I mentioned to you that I was there in 2007, didn't I?
Such a beutiful place.

Well, off to bed now.
Sweet dreams.

Sounds like a great day, except for the dusting of snow. Isn't it too early?

Good luck tomorrow.

Queenmothermamaw said...

Tommy looks like a nice fellow. I pray everything will be cleared up and plan for the treatment will be worked out. God bless

The Retired One said...

Yes, please let us know your health plan, I am praying it is not more serious than you are letting us know!
Your friend is rather cute, little devil....are you SURE he is just a friend????

Take care and know you are in my heart.

Jerelene said...

So you had snow? Wow!! I stupidly forgot when you sent the addresses...that you live in Canada...I've been there when I was a very small girl. My parents took us to see Niagra Falls and then to Canada...I remember lots of water on the way up :)
I like snow, so I think that's pretty cool!!
I'm glad you have such a good friend to go with you to your's nice to have that kind of support...and I agree...I like to just ride along and rest and be able to enjoy the view :)
And your pen-pal is pretty cute!! That's the nice kind to have :)
Keeping you in my prayers...

Bernie said...

Hi Margie, you have been so busy, I hope you are not over doing it sweetie....yes a dusting of snow this morning and it is snowing now as I type but we are not suppose to get a large amount.
I am enjoying having a pen pal, it's been fun.....I love Scotland but found it quite cold, Ireland was my favorite country so far among the ones I have visited.
Talk soon.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hello Miss Jobhunter, in Alberta we could and have had snow as early as August....It is snowing again now, I think we are in for another long winter.
Thanks for the "good luck", something tells me I will need it but as always one day at a time my friend.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Peggy, thanks for your prayers, I am very much at peace with all that is happening right now and believe that all things work out the way they are suppose too.
Tommy is a real gentleman and I always enjoy finding a letter in the mail box from him
Take care my dear......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Joan, thanks for the prayers my friend, I will keep you posted, not to worry. I did have a wonderful day today and will have Terry with me tomorrow to hear what the plan is, I know all will be well.
Yeah Tommy is kind of cute...LOL seriously he is a nice man and I am enjoying the letters. My sister and her husband know him very well and says he is a wonderful person. Hey I can't get in any trouble thousands of miles away....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Jerelene, thank you for your prayers.
We are having more snow now, strange eh! Oh well, it's time to nest and just be cosy anyway.
Yes, I am enjoying letter writing again, not only to Tommy but to our group of pen pals as well. I think it is a wonderful idea.
Hugs to Sam.......:-)Hugs

Valerie said...

Replying to your two posts, Bernie. A day off from blogging has thrown me.
First, I'm glad you had a good time with your best friends and that you felt well enough to enjoy the visit.
Second, I hope you get on okay with the procedure and treatment. Sending special hugs to take with you.
Third, what a nice looking man you have tucked away... smiles.

Granny on the Web said...

So glad to see you back posting Bernie, all your days sound wonderful, at least you make them sound so, as is your nature... so optimistic.
I shall pray for your ills and treatments, we are all rooting for you.
You mention snow! Wow, I haven't got round to thinking on that sort of weather yet; we have had a wet and windy period, but today is warm and sunny, in fact we have had some of the warmest nights recorded for October.
My love to you, and also prayers.
Love Granny

GrandmaK said...

So glad your day was so restful. Can just imagine your with your feet up watch your games...Tom is a handsome man! Praying for your continued recuperation!!! Cathy

Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie...
I am going to be waiting patiently for any news you wish to tell us about your appointment today Bernie. So glad Terry will be with you. I know you said no reason to be concerned, but can't help it. Any illness is not at all pleasant to have.

I agree with everyone else Bernie, your pen pal in Scotland is very good looking, have you been writing very long to this wonderful gentleman? Just kidding!

Will be saying prayers for the plans and procedures to be simple...and have you feeling your best soon.

Luv and Smiles,

cinner said...

Bernie, I am glad you have a friend to go with you to your doctors. sometime the jargon can be overwhelming! You are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope all will be okay. Your pen pal is a good looking fellow and love the idea of letter writing. Please know that you are loved today, big hug.

Teacher's Pet said...

I'm praying for your doctor's visits....those prayers will be foremost in my thoughts.
The 'dusting' of snow sounds heavenly to me. I would love to see snow. Like I have posted before, if we have snow here, it is declared a 'national holiday!'
I'm glad that you are enjoying your pen pal from Scotland. It is so nice to make friends from other parts of the the world. He looks like a very nice gentleman.
Have a good day, Bernie, and know that you are surrounded...covered...protected in prayers today.

Eileen said...

I love the sound of your day, all cozy in the house beside a fire with the snow outside!
And I'm glad you'll have Terry with you, it's so much better to have someone with you when the doctor is explaining everything. And also the fact that she can do the driving is such a big help too!

I love the idea of pen-pals too. It really does make the world smaller, as does blogging!

'Hope you enjoy another nice day, my friend!
Love you, Eileen

Diana said...

Good Morning Bernie,
I must say Tommy is quite attractive! I too miss the letter writing, which is why I agreed to do the pen pal thing!
I am so happy that you had a quite and pain free day. Where are you getting the cortisone shot Bernie? I don't remember you telling me.
I can't believe you had a dusting already! But it is that time of year I suppose. It's supposed to turn pretty cool here this weekend. High in the fifty's they say! Enjoy the quite time Bernie. I will be thinking of you!
Love Di

Blessings each day said...

He is very nice looking Bernie and you can get 'in trouble' even thousands of miles away. I met Michael online and I was in Arizona and he was in Georgia, but I got into good 'trouble' that way!

Love when you have a good day and just wish that was an everyday occurance for you!

blessings and hugs,


Choices said...

Hi Bernie,
It is good to hear that you are feeling well. I hope all goes well at the Dr.
What a handsome man Tommy is. It must be so much fun writing and receiving mail. With technology that has become something of the past.
Snow already? It has been so hot here.
Stay warm.
Take care.

Gail said...

Hi Bernie-

Your friend 'Tommy' is quite handsome. How nice to have a 'pen-pal'. It is good that your friend will do the driving AND be with you when your doctor explains things - I always lose track so I like to have a calmer ear and mind with me as well. :-)

Our weekend here is Tuesday and Wednesday since my husband is off those 2 days. We enjoyed ourselves a lot - our wood was delivered and it is ll stacked, my Mom and Sis cme for home made chicken soup and it ws lovely.
AND wow, snow ey? I just heard the weather here and they said we could get a dusting Friday night!!
Keep feeling well.

Love to you

Bernie said...

Hi Val, how did your evening go? Do you miss the gavel? I was hoping you would post a picture of you in your lovely outfit. Have a great day.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Granny, how are you feeling?
It is snowing this morning and actually it's quite pretty outside. I am hoping the roads are good for Terry's drive in from Bonnyville....have a great day..Hugs

Bernie said...

Cathy, thank you for your prayers, so love knowing they are coming my way.....have a great day...:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hello Wanda, thank you for your prayers. It is snowing this morning and I am hoping the roads will be good for Terry's drive. I will post about my health Wanda, am not sure what is happening but hope to know more today.
I have been writing Tommy a few months now, he talks with my sister quite often as they belong to the same walking club in Scotland. It is fun to get letters in the mail......Luv ya...:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Cinner, thank you for your prayers my friend, we are having snow again this morning, it is very pretty outside....Tommy seems like a very nice gentleman and I enjoy writing to him.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Jackie, if you would like to see snow, we are completely covered this morning.....thank you for your prayers my friend and yes I am enjoying writing letters to Tommy, it is a nice way to get to know someone.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Eileen, oh yesterday was heavenly, I do have a busy day scheduled today and it's snowing. So glad Terry will be here soon.
It is fun having a pen pal Eileen, I love talking with people in all forms of communication. Big hugs to Mia and Jayden......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Di, I have to have the cortisone shots in my lower back, neck and hands but they can't be done at one visit so I think I will have them do my lower back tomorrow as it is bothering me the most right now.
How are you feeling?
I am enjoying the letter writing, hoping your letter arrives today, I will let you know okay.
Take care.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Marcy, Tommy doesn't have a computer so all our communication is by letter and it has been fun. He seems to be a very nice man for sure, my sister speaks very highly of him.
More snow this morning Marcy, so glad Terry will be here to drive today....have a wonderful day my friend.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Oh Anne, everything is covered in snow this morning and it is still coming down but it is very pretty.
Tommy remembers me from my visit to Scotland last summer but I really don't remember him. He doesn't have a computer so all our communication is by mail and I am enjoying the letters very much.
Have a great day......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Gail, I think Tommy is handsome as well, I really don't know him that well but he seems so nice in all of his letters.
Hope you are well, you had such a busy day yesterday stacking wood and enjoying your family, sounds wonderful.......:-) Hugs

Kay said...

I always love how you say the day was nothing much, yet proceed to tell the wonders of daily life. you make me want a pen pal. :)

Sniffles and Smiles said...

What a blessing to be pain-free!!! I'm so very, very happy for you!!!! Hope your visit to the doctor is uneventful!!!! I like snow dustings...especially if they don't stick...all the beauty, none of the aggravation ...and a warm fire? just you!!! Love to you~Janine XO

Barb said...

Hello Bernie,
I am thinking of you - I can imagine you relaxing by the fire. I hope somehow you can keep us updated on your condition after you enter the hospital. At any rate, know that my healing thoughts are with you.

Thank goodness for wonderful friends like Terry!

Bernie said...

Hi Kay, I do love my life even don't mind a bump on the road once in a is good sweetie, I am very contented and happy with all the love I receive from my family and friends...Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Janine, we had more than a dusting of snow today, a real snow storm .... oh but I still had a cosy day by the fire...still need a few more test but was comfortable and pain free all day, such a blessing......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Barb, oh I am so blessed to have my best friend Terry close by. She was unable to make it through the snow storm today but will be in next week. Keep those good thoughts coming my friend, I can feel everyone's prayers and good thoughts always.....:-) Hugs
