Well, temp. went up today and Buddy and I got out for our "dam" walk... first time in well over a week... I can't believe how fast endurance and pace can go down. I was 1 hr. 25 min. walk and only did 5.5 km...and I was really dragging my butt... supposed to be a couple days of warmer weather, I better get out there and take advantage of it.
Had nice coffee date with a friend from book club, phone call with my neighbor and went out for a drive with my niece, and a little bit of shopping.... busy day.... then a long call to my mother....
Thank you for ideas on mice.... we have a trap out, but my niece also told me she knows someone with kitties..... hmmm? yes, litter boxes and medical bills, and as dh says, they also destroy furniture, so sounds like they will have to find a home elsewhere.
Did anyone see the show (available at www.cbc.ca/fifth) on the Sextortion of Amanda Todd. She was a 12 y.o. teen who committed suicide in B.C. after on-line bullying etc.... very eye-opening.... and educational, not to mention, what an excellent job of research the reporter put into it.... A "must-see" for anyone with kids or grandkids or if you are in the school system..... PLEASE WATCH!
Happy Thanksgiving to American friends....
Thought: Harvard happiness expert Daniel Gilbert explains it:
We are happy when we have family, we are happy when we have friends and almost all the other things we think make us happy are actually just ways of getting more family and friends.
