My Saturday!

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Today marked one year since my oldest sister Jessie passed away. Some sad thoughts but a lot of happy memories of her. We five sisters got together every year for each of our birthdays, for a lunch, and a lot of talking and laughter filled the air. Now we are down to three of us.

My sister Jessie

Rolly and I went for supper out of town tonight with another of my sisters and her husband and then we went for a nice long drive. Something the four of us love . . . car rides!! We're really like four kids, lol.

I had pasta with a plain tomato sauce and a salad for supper and I had coffee with no sugar . . . no sweetener either, a first for me! Truth, the coffee tasted just fine! Rode my exercise bike today also. Came home from our supper and Rolly wanted to make us tea, he has desserts on the table! It was not difficult at all for me to say 'no' and I feel so good about that! I also rode my exercise bicycle. I consider today another great day.

My bird, Sunny Boy, after he had his bath this morning!

One of my healthy stir fry suppers I had this week.

    What a lovely picture of your sister. Will keep you in my prayers for God to comfort you.
I am so glad that you had a nice dinner and visit with your other sister. It sounds like a wonderful evening.

    Gloria, you are doing great. Glad that you had a good time out with your Sister and DH, and sorry about losing your one Sister a year ago. It will be a year May 1st that I lost DH. Geo. Jr is taking me up to the Veteran's cemetary to his grave on May 1st. In some ways it seems like a year, and other ways it seems like yesterday. I look at pictures and still cannot believe that he won't be coming through the door. It has been hard this past couple of weeks when I think back and how Hospice was so great taking care of him in our home.

Hugs and prayers

    Happy memories are good to celebrate. Congratulations on kicking the sugar habit. That is one habit that hangs on as long as possible. Good choices. Have a sweet Sunday.

    Your sister Jessie was a beautiful lady. I'm glad that you and another sister got together today and had a nice dinner and ride with your husbands!
Doesn't it feel good to know we are taking good care of ourselves? I rode my exercise bicycle today too! We should be very proud of ourselves! emoticon

Hope your Sunday is just as nice as today was for you!

    I know you miss your two sisters. They continue to have a special place in your memories. We always have the memories to reflect on. Glad you could be out today. The air may be chilly, but it is refreshing. Today is our youngest Son, Phil's Birthday.
We are glad to have him here in the States. Did Sunny enjoy some sun today? emoticon
