Some days I feel like the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 69 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (FIFTY TWO YEARS!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
(So sad to add that my dear younger son, Patrick, 50, father of my three grands, died in November 2020 after battling colon cancer for four years.)
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlings.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    Thanks for dropping by. Yes, I was filling up my days to keep my mood up, but my foot sent me the right message!

    I saw my DH on the iPad screen today. He had the operation on Wednesday. I’ll see him on Tuesday. He looked tired. I hope he will get stronger soon.

    I hope all is well with you and you have good weekend!

    Kitties and moving furniture:

    According to the vet staff, kitties can be stressed by changes in their environment. And the "inflamation" can be stress induced. I moved his favorite chair. Now that it's back in its original corner he's taken up residence!

    I had also vocalized that Carl is coming to visit (next Sunday). And we had that nasty cold spell, which interfered with his routine. And a strange cat was hanging out on the deck... which is his personal property, don't you know?

    Bottom line, stress in humans is cumulative, I imagine it is in cats, too. Poor Prisoner.

    But he's a sterling patient... has been taking his meds fine (based on 2 days worth). And I've seen no evidence of leaks in the past 24 hours. I've seen him eat and drink. And the litter box was used last night, but that's not proof it was him, as the two of them both use the same litter boxes.
