Rain, rain, rain, oh did I mention rain?

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Wow, I just lost my last blog, not sure why, but it didn't show up and no matter what I did, I couldn't get it back.

Well, I'd talked about how rainy it is today, and how cool it is outside. I guess we have to get used to the cold weather with winter coming soon, so I'll be switching to indoor exercises and walking.

Remember that smile, it's important not only to you, but to those around you, because once you smile you set into motion a whole series of smiles that can spread around the world.

Have a wonderful day, and keep going on, no matter what! emoticon


Rain, rain, rain, oh did I mention rain?

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Yet another day of rain, I wish it'd stop so I could get out there and walk again, yesterday was fine, but today it's raining harder, makes it hard to walk. Well I guess it's back to the videos again, but then I guess I have to since winter's coming.

Well I know the sun is shining somewhere and it's nice and warm (yep, reminds me of NC trip, and also flying above the clouds seeing how blue it was and sunny above the clouds.)

I hope you all enjoy this day, and remember to smile, it's important not only to your own welfare, but of those you meet. Have a great day, everyone! emoticon


Should have used yesterdays title for today.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

I went outside for my walk today, despite it being miserably cold and damp, it was raining, but I took my umbrella along, I wish I'd taken gloves, too and a hood.

Oh well, I made it through and am now back inside, trying to get warmed up again, and attempting to fix my mouse which stopped allowing the left click (I use it with my left hand, so that's the one that allows you to open other tabs, copy/paste, etc), and I can't figure it out. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it, I've set my computer back a few days to see if that helped, I think the next step is to open up my computer and see if that's the problem

Oh well, if I don't return tomorrow, you'll know why...I blew my computer. *LOL*

Have a great day, everyone, and smile! emoticon


Where there's a will...

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Well it's raining outside but I wasn't going to let that stop me, I went back to the exercise videos I used to do and did those, I guess I should be getting used to them because when the snow falls and it gets supercold, I'll be inside anyways.

I actually made it through them, I guess the walking outside is helping a lot, they seemed just a little easier than they used to be. Maybe I'll have to go to the next higher up level.

I'm still waiting for my DVD I won on the wheel, so I can try those exercises, I hope I'm able to keep up, and there's nothing that needs kneeling...I can't kneel my knees hurt like crazy in front when I kneel, I forgot what the doctor called it, but it's because of the 2 falls (directly on my knees) a couple years ago, one week after the other. Trust me, I tried kneeling for communion and decided no matter how much it hurt, I was staying kneeling. I mean if Christ can die for me on a cross, I can stand being on my knees long enough to take communion.

Well, back to the same ole, same ole, have a great day, everyone, and remember that smile, always! emoticon


Beautiful day at the Cemetery..

Monday, October 14, 2013

I stopped down at the cemetery like I've done nearly every time when I'm in town, and read to my Dad again, just like I promised. I'm about 3/4 the way through the book with probably over 300 or so pages to go. It was beautiful there, the sun was shining between the walls of the mauseolem (sp) and it actually was warm there. I like to think it was Dad giving me a hug, because on my way into town I passed the Agrace building and started tearing up remembering the last day I saw him, last time I spoke to him, last time I held his hand. Even now, sitting here typing this I'm tearing up, but I know my Dad is in a much better place and is waiting for the rest of us. At least I got to tell him, many, many times how I loved him, and how proud I was of him, and most of all, that he was/is the greatest Father there could ever be.

That was when I'd promised that I'd finish reading the book I'd started before he passed away, so he could hear the ending. He always loved "Lonesome Dove", the book, the movie, and he was starting it to read once again, so I had to do that for him. I'm lucky, the book is 960 pages long, and I think I started on page 20 or so before he passed, and continued reading and will until I'm done.

I guess it brings me more comfort to be there, reading to him, because it's like he's right there, and I believe he is, just not in a physical sense.

My Dad and I were best friends and I'm so glad I have his sense of humor, his love for life, his way of smiling to people. I miss him, but he is still with us. I love you, Dad.

I made flowers for his birthday last year, he loved sunflowers, and I just had to do something. My sweet niece helped me by picking out things she wanted in the bouquet, too. It was a team-work thing.
