Hello my friends, I have had a busy, productive and a very happy day. It was sunny and cool here today....all our snow is gone....for now.
I busied myself today defrosting the freezer, cleaning the fridge and though I have a self cleaning oven in my stove after it went through it's cycle I wiped out and polished it inside and out.....the appliances look brand new and the fridge looks empty.....grocery shopping will have to wait until next week though as I am going on a spiritual retreat this weekend with 3 of my best friends. I am not driving but Avanish is and it's about a 2 hour drive north west of here.....The four of us are staying in a log cabin. It's called the River Lodge and has walking paths through deep woods and for the very energetic there is a wonderful hiking path as well. It has outdoor fire pits and inside fireplaces. It has the bare necessities, well it does have a hot tub and a lady who gives massages but the main focus is to be on nature, walks, prayer and meditation.....all 4 of us practice different religions but that doesn't matter to any of us.....it will be a quiet,relaxing time that all us ladies will experience and enjoy together.
Oh I meant to tell you I saw the movie Amelia the other night.....now it didn't have me sitting on the edge of my seat or anything but I did find it very interesting. Hillary Swank played the part really well.....it must of been hard to be a woman back then, especially a shy yet aggressive one as she was. Here I am frightened to climb a ladder and this lady was very impressive with her courage. She had big dreams and she didn't let anything keep her from living them. I wouldn't pay to go to the theatre to see it again but I would rent it.
Have any of you seen the documentary "Alone in the Wilderness"....it's absolutely brilliant and I recommend it to everyone. I sat there and watched it in awe, I have ordered a copy of the DVD from Amazon as I could and have watched it over and over again. It was on one of our PBS channels.....Wanda I really feel you and Richard would enjoy this documentary very much.
My friend came over for supper tonight and for the second night in a row we enjoyed a bottle of wine as we watched the World Series.....Way to go Yankees....honestly I didn't relax until the last batter was out, I was really happy as I didn't want to see it go to a seventh game.
I am still having problems with blogger, but it has been better since yesterday, at least it is letting me open my own blog, now let's see if it let's me post.
Good Night and God Bless.........many, many hugs...:-)
