1. Dad pulled through! We witnessed a miracle. He is more alert and active than I've seen him in months.

2. We found a skilled nursing facility for him that we like much better. It is only 15 minutes from my sister's house!

3. It is good to be home. I walked over 4 miles this morning, went to aerobics and CrossFit classes and cleaned house!

1. I am spending time with Dad who is definitely in last stages of life, but shows no signs or symptoms of distress. The IV fluids are not working for him so that was discontinued along with antibiotics today.

2. Today 2 brothers joined my sister and me at the hospital. We laughed about some old funny memories we shared.

3. The boys at home are doing well "holding the fort".

1. We had nice walk at another local park this morning. Part of it on a boardwalk through a mangrove swamp (no bugs).

2. The tide was extra low again today so it made for great walking along the beach this afternoon.

3. I got up this morning just in time to see a beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic ocean...it was really stunning.

1. We took a fun walk on a boardwalk today that goes along one of the intercoastal waterways.

2. I did some serious swimsuit shopping today and found something that I liked. Since my breast surgery and losing 35 pounds in the past year, my old swimsuits looked horrible. The one I found has a very high neckline and looks flattering. Jim was very patient while I shopped.

3. I had a delicious dinner tonight eating out. Nothing fancy....just simple food very well prepared.

Good luck on buying a home. I hope you find something you really like. When does your lease end?

Today:

1. It was the best day yet for walking on the beach.

2. We walked almost 5 miles without even trying...it was so nice.

3. There were a lot of pretty shells on the beach due to a very low tide. We filled our pockets with them as we walked.

So happy for you, Kay!


1. Did an intense hour of aerobics class.

2. Got a lot done at home today, including baking two loaves of oatmeal bread.

3. I gave the landlord notice that I would not be renewing the lease at the end of May. Ken and I planned to buy a home by now and I plan to do just that. Kind of scary, but trusting God to help me in this endeavor.

1. I had a great gluten free home made macaroon today.....I don't eat many sweets so this was quite a treat.

2. We found some much needed batteries for my husband's hearing aid controller. It's an odd size.

3. Even though it was supposed to be rainy all day today, the sun came out and we had a great walk outdoors.

1. I really went into cleaning mode and scrubbed, organized, and made the whole kitchen shine!

2. Made a real good white corn chili... new recipe. Wonderful on this very cold day.

3. We had our community service healthy lifestyle program tonight. Everything came together well. Lots of people came and the food was great. The theme this month was "Eat more and Weigh Less".

It is 5 degrees here. You couldn't have picked a better time to be in FL. Thank you for painting such a nice word picture of sunshine, warmth and waves. I'm there with you in my mind :-)

1. The boys and I put up our bird feeder and stocked it well earlier this week.

2. We live in a very well insulated house and stay toasty while the temps drop.

3. I have a good supply of all kinds of herb tea; my favorite warm drink on cold days and nights.

I hope you enjoyed the movie outing. Wow....you are really getting in some heavy duty exercise!

1. Made a new juice today....cranberries, lemon, celery, apple, and romaine lettuce. It was pretty good and sort of festive for Christmas.

2. Went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast this morning and had a particularly good waitress who was extra helpful in getting gluten-free foods for me.

3. We have a special meal planned for tonight that I'm looking forward to.

For Monday:

1. Went to see a movie that a friend had asked me to see with her awhile back. After I accepted, I realized that it was mine and Ken's wedding anniversary date and we probably would have done the same thing.

2. Got the last of family gift shopping done.

3. Had a good workout at Cross Fit and walked 4 miles afterward.

For today:

1. Got hair colored, trimmed and styled.

2. Finished holiday grocery shopping.

3. Staying nice and dry at home this evening as the rain pours outside. Will do some cooking as I have family coming early tomorrow.

2. Enjoyed youngest son's school Christmas program this morning. He is in the final year of Life Skills class under the umbrella of the high school. It is for special needs kids.

3. Both of the "boys" still at home are on break for the rest of the month.

1. We made a last minute decision today to go on a cruise....tomorrow!

2. We got packed and drove to Macon, Ga safely this evening.

3. We only have about 4 more hours of driving to do to get to the port.

(I'll be gone either one or two weeks....if we are really enjoying ourselves, we may do back to back cruises.) They are only $130/person for 5 nights!

1. I did a little workout on the treadmill this morning.

2. I put out the Thanksgiving decorations and I'm happy with the way they look.

3. I was able to help a friend this morning who has just started chemo for breast cancer.
