Thankful for family and friends

So much to learn about myself
Grateful to be working towards a better me
I am so lucky and I know that

Nice people helping each other tackle their health issues
Giving and taking, helping and listening.

Thank you Veterans!

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I would like to thank all of the Veterans for all they have given me. My freedoms means a lot to me and without your help and dedication I would not be able to enjoy my freedoms.
I would like to thank my brothers, father, step-father and my neighbors. Please take the time out of your Sunday to thank someone. God bless you. All active men and women, thank for for being out there protecting me now. God bless you too and hopefully you return home safely to your family and friends. emoticon

The best excercise.

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

All you Americans out there, don't forget, the best excercise you can do today is to "excercise" your right to vote.

    I voted a few weeks ago, and it's a relief! Bad weather predicted for today, but right now in my neck of the woods, the sky is blue and the sun is sunny!

Great excercise

Saturday, November 03, 2012

Today I picked up my rake for what I though was the last time for the season. I finished the front and started on the back. I should have never looked up. The neighbor has a huge maple that has only lost about 30% of its leaves. The tree is right on the property line so 50% of the leaves fall in my yard. Well I guess next week when I pull my rake out again, it may be for the last time. Or maybe not. emoticon emoticon

    Our neighbor thanked us when we cut down one that always blew leaves in their yard. At least you like to rake anyway, right?

    ha ha, the joke's on you! As long as it is a sunny, fairly warm day, isn't it a fun job??

NESARIAN 11/3/2012 5:58PM

    LOL Pat! Our neighbor has a magnificent maple tree. It takes a North wind to blow the leaves off. We live north of the tree so "share" all those wonderful leaves also. Granted our neighbor is sweet and asks permission to "take his leaves back." Always cracks me up. A good neighbor is priceless!

    As I was out in the yard tending "dog duty", I thought to myself..."hmmm, hubby should be able to mow 1 more time this year, lol!!!" I like to have a nice clean cut yard when spring appears... I cannot mow because of my back, but would have today if I was able. Hubby isn't home now for me to play dictator, emoticon .

    I guess if you look at it as exercise, it's not so bad. Plus if you have headphones and some rockin' tunes, it should go by fast. Happy raking!

Too much candy!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

I bought way too much candy
The kids did just not show
Could it have been the weather
The rain, the wind the snow
So, now what do I do with it
I really want to know
I don't want to consume it
My diet it would blow
So the next kid that rings my bell
Is in for a surprise
I will dump the whole bowl in and
He won't believe eyes
Next year when I buy candy
I have to have a plan
Who knew that storm called Sandy
Would be a hurricane

Boo!
emoticon

A poem by me!

I dropped something off at my niece's house today and she was so grateful that our town has postponed trick-or-treating until Sat night as she and her 3 daughters had eaten all the Halloween candy they bought last week whilst housebound for the storm.

    So cute! If you can resist dipping into that bowl of candy, you are a rock star! I am lucky I guess in that trick-or-treaters don't come to my neighborhood. So I don't have ANY Halloween candy sitting around.

    Very clever and funn! I bought zero candy this year. Good thing. Rain is expected any minute so i doubt the 10-12 kids we normally have, will even show!
I would love to see the look on the lucky kid's face when he gets the whole bowl!!!! You will be remembered for life!
