Had a leisurely start to my day. Then went with a friend and her 98 yr. old Mother to a radiology place so her Mom could have an x-ray of her carotid arteries. Hope it all turns out ok for her. We then went for lunch at a place called The Cracker Barrel.I had a Reuben sandwich..ate half and brough the other half home for tomorrow night. I have a 5 pm choir rehersal tomorrow night and DH has a 6 pm council mtg, so we'll be responsible for feeding ourselves!
Didn't do much of anything when I came home. I'll do laundry tomorrow and change our sheets after I come back from Curves in the am.
We honored our Veterans in church yesterday and had a special Patriotic Medly played on the sax by someone. He had a good CD-backup that he and is wife had arranged when he was playing professionally.
Elayne from Florida in the Eastern Time Zone. " My goal is to live the truly religious life, and express it in my music. If you live it, when you play, there's no problem because the music is part of the whole thing. To be a musician is really something. It goes very,very deep. My music is the spiritual expression of what I am--my faith, my knowledge, my being." by John Coltrane
My kids are off from school, so this morning was a lazy one. Didn't get out of bed until almost 8:30 (usually up and out by 6:00). Was just reading away!! now, I have to get my feet pounding on the pavement: it's run day for me!! Probably take the kids to lunch and possibly, a movie when DH leaves work early!!
Rememberance Day was yesterday - I listened to some music and meditated for a while. It was also my uncle's 80th birthday celebration, so I went to that. I have no family members that served in the Canadian army, though I do have a friend who is enlisted and I think about him on Rememberance Day.
Today its back to normal.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's learning to dance in the rain.
I do appreciate all the Veteran's and what they did for us. All my uncles were in WWII and my brother was in the Navy. I have lots of friends that served in the military and some of their sons.
As for celebrations. my youngest daughter turned 39 (today) , so we celebrated Friday lunch and Sunday lunch and it was GREAT!! I will also have them all over on Wednesday for lunch again. We believe in celebrating special days and lots of family time.
