Some times when everyone is talking about health issues, I feel truly blessed. I have some arthritis in my ankles and now getting into my fingers. Otherwise , I am very healthy. I will absolutely count that as a blessing.
Hope all of you had a wonderful fun weekend. I sure did. I went to the granddaughters' choir program on Saturday. Enjoyed that so very much. On Sunday, I went to brunch at my daughter Angie's. Then I helped her decorate her tree. With two of us, it went pretty fast and turned out nicely.
Today is mostly cloudy , if the sun pops out I will be smiling. :) Wishing you a nice day . XO

I could use some sunshine today. It motivates me. I had a good weekend too. I didn't get to Horton's though. Did you go to an all girls school or do you ladies deliberately exclude the guys (like we do from my Purdue lunch people!)ReplyDelete
Cindy, I saw a smidge of sunshine but that was all. I went into Horton's after my brunch. I did buy a plaid pail. Brought it home and added it to my decorations. We invite Jim the fellow in charge of all our reunion photos, once in awhile. It is usually just us women. We have form 8-12 show up each time. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Brunch with old friends sounds wonderful. So glad you had a nice weekend with your family. I have yet to put my tree up. But it doesn't take me long to decorate.ReplyDelete
Kathy, It is fun. We always love catching up. I hope you enjoy putting up your tree and decorating it. I like to enjoy mine for a month. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
It's so nice that you still get together. I live in a 55 plus community and people talk about their health a lot here. We are blessed my friend! Holiday hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, Some of our ladies have fought breast cancer, some have stents, one even had heart surgery. Two ladies have had knee replacements. Not from being over weight either. So I consider myself very fortunate. We have to count our blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
What fun that you can do that with your friends of many years. January will give you something to look forward to!ReplyDelete
I count myself as blessed, too, Susie. I have always been so healthy except for some inflammatory issues that come and go (also in my ankles). Good health is a real blessing. xo Diana
Diana, It is a fun time. I hate how the arthritis has slowed me down some...but oh my gosh, I am so much stronger than most of my classmates and all of my sisters. :) That is why I try to rake leaves, shovel snow(sensibly) walk stand, do the stairs...can run them like I want to. LOL. When people say they wish they had their perfect eye sight back...I would love to run again, like a I want. That is what I miss. Blessings for always having good health, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your friendship group looks so sweet. I bet you all have a wonderful time together. We are having about the same weather gloomy and rainfilled. A little freezing rain this morning but that seems to have stopped. I guess it could be worse with snow. So no complaining here.ReplyDelete
Kris, I say everyday without snow is a happy day for me. LOL. I did enjoy today. I went by Horton's and bought a red plaid pail. It has a teddy bear sitting on it now. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Looks like so much fun! I met up with a bunch of old classmates over the weekend. IT was a hoot!ReplyDelete
Sweet Japolina, I miss you blogging . I do enjoy just getting out with these ladies. There are only a couple of them that I have socialized with. But we all seem to enjoy our time together. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieReplyDelete
I can only keep up with classmates through Facebook! You are blessed to be able to do that. Brunches are always fun. Today started out cloudy and cold 43 here), but the sun came out and warmed up to about 69. Spent the day with friends at the Arboretum. Very good day.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, so glad you had a fun day with your friends too. Those are nice temperatures. Enjoy. oxoxo, SusieDelete
What a lovely week-end you had, and the fun just continued on to today! Take care, Susie! xo NellieReplyDelete
Nellie, Other than my stove every thing else is doing great. I am enjoying my season. xoxo,SusieDelete
Today was cold, but no rain. I was able to get around and do the things I wanted to. I am grateful -- so grateful -- for good health. A lot of conversations with friends are discussions of ailments and I am thankful I don't have much to share.ReplyDelete
Carol, I know what you mean too...if we can walk, we should...it's good for our health and helps to clear our thoughts too. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
We finally saw some sunshine today and it was wonderful! Sounds like you had a very nice weekend and it is a real blessing to have so many classmates living close enough that can get together. How fun!ReplyDelete
Cheryl , Time with old friends is always fun. I miss my very best friend from school days. She passed away last April. I will always hold her close in my heart. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
You are blessed! Not only in health but with such a good group of friends! Don't you love children's Christmas programs?? I just found out today that the quads will be in one! I had no idea they would have a CHRISTMAS program for 2 1/2 year olds!!! I'm sure it will be short but you better believe we will BE there!!!ReplyDelete
Linda, I adore kids concerts, plays and anything to hear and see them perform. I know you are going to love your grands in their preschool program... Let's keep our good health as long as we can...moving makes that possible. can sit around so much. Not that you and LD would know what that is like LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie, What a treasure to be in touch with those friends you've known for decades.ReplyDelete
I am still close(though out of state)with my best friend from high school. I don't get to see her as much as I'd like, but it is still fun when we get together.
Thanks for sharing-have a perfect day!
Noreen, come spring...you may have to just make time for your high school chum... It could be like a vacation. I like just getting to see everyone., My closest friend from school passed away last April. I miss her so much. xoxo,SusieDelete
So nice that there are so many of you and that you all get together..Fun!! Glad that you got to go to the concert..I remember those days..Happy TuesdayReplyDelete
Missy, It was a fun time. I always love kid programs. Especially in the afternoon.....as apposed to night time. I am not so into night driving any more. LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete
Looks like you had a great time. So much fun when friends gather together. Thanks for stopping over at my blog. Have a great rest of the week!ReplyDelete
Hi Sherry, Yes, I enjoy my pals from school. Most of us went through grade school together too. But my closest friend passed away last year. I miss her so much. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
How nice that you met with your classmates for brunch. Many of us still live in the same area too. I bet you had a lot of catching up to do.
Susie, there's a big storm coming in starting tomorrow. Say some prayers that it's not too bad. Thank you.
I don't live where I went to school, so for me, I think its so fun that you get to do this! Glad you had a great weekend. The weather could be worse, but its supposed to be a nice weekend. I am ready to do something outside!ReplyDelete
That looks so fun! I think it's wonderful you guys do this Susie!ReplyDelete
