Day 5 of Thankfulness

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

I am thankful that I am healthy. I have asthma and high blood pressure but both are controlled with medication. I know of so many people now who are dealing with serious health issue. I am so thankful that I am doing well and able to stay active.

Last night was just one of those nights when I couldn't get to sleep. Last time I looked at the clock it was almost 2am. Then at 6:15am the phone rang. It was a wrong number! Grrr!!! I had just gotten back sound asleep when a friend of my husbands who lives in Missouri called. He had forgotten the DH works evenings and we are night owls. It also slipped his mind that there is a 2 hour time difference between here & there. Oh well, since I got up early maybe I will have no problems falling to sleep tonight.

I really enjoyed getting out & walking the trails at the state park yesterday. My DH enjoyed his time metal detecting. I even made a new friend. I came upon a man and his dog on one of the trails. I thought I would just pass him and go on but he quickened his pace and joined me. He was very nice & we had a nice chat as we walked. I know when we had finished our walk and returned to the cars DH wondered who I was with. I sure am glad my DH is not jealous. Then again DH knows I know just what a sweetie I have and would be hard pressed to find another a good as him. My new friend invited us to join the square dance club he & his wife belong to and he also gave us some new ideas of where to camp and mushroom hunt.

Today the weather is cool & damp so I am going to exercise inside where it is warm. I wish everyone a wonderful week!
