You Got Mail!

Newest Roses from Daughter #1 "just because"
I don't know why all the roses, but I sure have been blessed!

The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.

I'm still quite busy. Got the outside done how I wanted it. Now I am working on getting the inside done before I go back up north. Right now dau#1 is emptying a kitchen cabinet I am going to clean, and put new shelving paper on. I would not have gotten done if she didn't give that extra little push by cleaning out the cabinet!

The flowers around here are finally in full bloom! Jasmine, gardenia-how sweet the smell! Bird of Paradise, Amaryllis- O MY can they get any prettier! WE may have had a harsher than normal winter, but the flowers are making up for not blooming earlier.

I have been going out to the beach in the evening with a friend and watching the sun set. You should see the sky. WHEW pretty spectacular. Last eve was really something, a sailboat was in the foreground. Then a bit later a couple of dolphin were swimming about! I do love it here. I have always wanted to be near the beach so I could take in some of Gods wonder whenever I felt like it!

awake @ 5

more pretty flowers I have received Just suddenly awake in a cold sweat-whats up with that. All is right in the world.

the dream

I had been running and pushing a cart thru a mall I had never been to before. The cart was filled with clothes that had been washed. So many weird elements to this dream! I was meeting up with my family@ a restaurant. Many of the things fell out along the way and I had to pick them up. I had had a hat on, yes me. It fell off and my hair was indescribable. I met old school friends along the way. I'd chat with them & give hugs. All I knew was, I had to go potty really bad! I get to the restaurant and all my family were gone, but the bathroom thankfully was still open. That's when I awoke! you guessed it I had to go potty.

All you dream people give a go at it. All I know is I had to go potty, I want a hug and I miss the big guy. OR it could be I worked too hard on my place yesterday as I cleaned up the carport, and washed the walls on the outside, yes soap & water.Just overtired? Maybe the meds I am taking for the knee? Or it doesn't mean anything.

Have a great day in the Lord and have a great day.,Whatever it may bring.

Dreams that do come true can be as unsettling as those that don't.
Brett Butler, 'Knee Deep in Paradise'

He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.
Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001), "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950

Just another day in Beautiful Florida

Received these edible posies for my birthday Nice Eating!

I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson: to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power that can move the world.
- Mahatma Gandhi
Well finally went and got the ole Taxes done, this is the latest I have ever done that! AND to my chagrin I had to pay, but owell that's life. Seems as though they are taking enough out of my pension. Will have to care of that right away! I could stand up and scream and shout, but what good would that do?? Just pay it and be done with it!
Went to the orthopedist, my knee has been giving me fits. I was supposed to have knee replacement about 10 years ago, but with babying it, have been ok. I told the doc I like my cute dimpled knees and just not ready, yet. See what we can do to avoid it. He said he would. So its pain meds, bracing, heat, and whatever. He did inject it and it is a bit better, but not perfect!
Yesterday, I went to the beach with a friend! WOW was it nice. It was about 85 degrees and gentle breezes blowing. Was to a little Island around here. We walked around it a couple of times-I need to exercise the knee! We talked, and just sat there and watched the gulf, so peaceful and calm. What a great day being retired! I made a picnic lunch. I slathered on sunscreen and still got pretty pink/red, but no problem it is good today. O I did walk IN the water- it was about 70 degrees, there were plenty of folk swimming, but not me yet, too cool.
Hope all my blogger friends are well and blessed!

Just a Quick One

I have been missing doing my blog, but I never seem to have time for it. I haven't even had time for sleep for the past week or so. So I sat myself down and said, Get soemthign written! So the blog friends will know I am ok
SOOOO I am ok, just been busy
Had a wonderful Easter-much time spent there with being in the choir and the many services I have attended.
Sunrise service was indescribable! The sun came up on the horizon as the last song was sung. Was a bit chilly as the wind was blowing off of the bay. But I survived, and me wearing a dress!
I have been trying to go to the pool frequently, am working on my tan, want the folks up north to know I live in FLorida ya know, when I go back up!
Been spending much time over my gf home- another friend is here from the east coast, and FAR too much wine!
