Today I'm 55! Was pondering a little last night...how did I get to this age so quickly? What practises in my life are beneficial to me and what do I need to change or work harder on? I think it's always good to do some evaluations a long the way of life.
Had a beautiful day yesterday. Went to second service and then went on our adventure. Drove around the countryside for 2 hours north. Mom enjoyed the countryside drive. Had made reservations at Cafe Veranda in Jackson Center Ohio. They had been featured recently in the Newspaper. It exceeded my expectations. It was a wonderful Victorian type restaurant with a Tuscan decor with cloth napkins and crystal goblets. A nice atmosphere. They even had seating on the Verandah...and it was very nice for those who were outside. We had chosen to eat inside. They had a wonderful buffet. Salads, french toast casserole, chicken, beef tenderloin, stir fried vegetables etc etc. and wonderful mini desserts and chocolate covered strawberries and fresh fruit. The food really had a nice taste. Just a lovely day. Then we drove around Indian Lake. Saw several sets of Momma ducks with babies at various stages. Thought they'd be about the same sizes but there was a definite difference in duckling ages. Mom really enjoyed the ride through the countryside. Somehow I got myself commited to taking her shopping to get myself something tonight for my birthday. I thoughgt I committed to taking her sometime this week and not tonight. Oh well...I'm not a big shopper. Not sure if we are taking me to get something or taking her to go shopping but we will get through it. I also need to get over there and plant flowers we bought her for mother's day! I grumble about my mother in law and yet she gave me a beautiful Birthday card. She says such nice things about me to others. I need to clean up my act...was pondering that last night when I was doing some thinking. I need to be more thankful and grumble less.
Co-workers taking me to lunch today for my Birthday. Our boss pays for us to go out for lunch on our B-days. I grumble about him and yet he does nice things for us.
Sounds like I need to check the words coming out of my mouth more. I grumble about others instead of keeping my mouth shut. Realize I need to work on that!
Off to make it a great day!
