Thanksgiving
Monday, November 16, 2009      7 comments

I will be going to my son's for Thanksgiving. My daughter-in-law is a good cook and chooses healthy recipes. I'm fortunate that I will have many wonderful choices. The challenge will be in portion control. However, I am getting better at it (as ... Read more
Museums
Sunday, November 15, 2009      5 comments

In the winter, I enjoy going to museums. Six weeks ago, I made plans to go to the art museum today with friends. At the time, I thought it would be cold outside. However, I plan to still go. We are fortunate to have many museums in the Cleveland... Read more
Phone calls
Saturday, November 14, 2009      3 comments

Today I called my children and got updates as to what was happening in their lives, their spouses and the grandchildren. This is part of what I do every Saturday. With all my children employed plus raising families, they are too busy to keep in ... Read more
Weather

The weather has been balmy for November. I was out raking leaves again today in 60 degree weather. I am enjoying the sunny days and the outdoor activity. I'll be ready for bed tonight. Tomorrow is supposed to be even warmer!... Read more
Sleep
Thursday, November 12, 2009      5 comments

I was 'burning the candle at both ends' for a few days. It caught up to me yesterday and I went to bed early. I didn't even get on the computer (no spark, e-mail, anything). After sleeping 12 hours, I got up. Fortunately, today I have off fro... Read more
Restaurant
Tuesday, November 10, 2009      7 comments

I went out to eat with a group of friends and did not 'pig out'. I brought 2/3rds of the meal home and skipped dessert completely. I drank water with a little lemon and ate all my salad. I did 'overdo' on the rolls though. They were piping hot a... Read more
Work
Monday, November 09, 2009      3 comments

Today started off a little frustrating at work as I could not get in as the person who normally opens was in Chicago and forgot about my coming in early. Thus, paperwork didn't get finished today and will have to be added to tomorrow's things to... Read more
Leaves
Sunday, November 08, 2009      4 comments

I've spent time the past two days raking leaves. It is an enjoyable pastime on a warm autumn day. The pile on my curb lawn is now higher than my knees. However, there are still leaves falling and many more on the trees to still come down. Hopefu... Read more
Indian Summer
Friday, November 06, 2009      4 comments

We're supposed to have a few days coming that are in the 60's. It will give me a chance to get the leaves raked. This is a multi-day task as there are several trees in my yard. Hopefully, the wind that we are to have tomorrow will be blowing in ... Read more
H1N1
Thursday, November 05, 2009      5 comments

Getting the H1N1 vaccine takes thoughtful consideration. I felt it was right for me as I am a health care worker with underlying medical conditions. I received the injection last night. I was about 40 min early for the clinic and was through wit... Read more

I have been remenencing a lot about the good times Tim and I had. Last night there was a church service remembering those who passed away during the past year. It brought tears to my eyes. It was beautifully done. Everyone who lost a love one wa... Read more
Tim's Grave
Sunday, November 01, 2009      16 comments

I will be going with Tim's brother and sister-in-law to visit Tim's grave today. I have flowers to leave there. It's been a little over 5 months since his death but I still miss him. The holidays will be a bit lonelier as we went to Christmas an... Read more
Halloween
Saturday, October 31, 2009      3 comments

Today my grandchildren are trick-or-treating. They are dressing as everything from a Chinese war lord to a cat. How I wish they didn't look forward to the junk they'll receive in their bags. How I wish more people would give coins, trinkets or s... Read more
Funeral

My sister-in-law has lost another sister to cancer. I was at calling hours today. The funeral is tomorrow but I have to work. It is very hard on my sister-in-law as her parents are also gone. We shared hugs.... Read more
