Good afternoon!

Busy day. I stopped to relax. I'm making a chicken and quinoa casserole for a potluck tomorrow after church. Tonight we going to friends home for lasagna and a movie. Ugh! I'll have a protein shake before we go tonight, then I plan to have a very small serving of lasagna. Foodwise, this is a difficult weekend! But it will be fun!

Oh, my!! All the hassle of getting here has now faded.

I am just bursting with endorphins and feelings of love! Truly paradise with all my loved ones!! Ahh, 70+° right now. Finishing Starbucks before we hit the beach and watch the sunrise. DH and I walked down the beach and felt the cold ocean on our feet last night before turning in. Celebrating DD 's birthday today. I can't put into words how WONDERFUL I feel!!

Thanks for all the well wishes--they have come to fruition

Aloha!

Morning everyone and a big thank you to you Maree for storing us this morning. I think we should call you Old Faithful or better yet Young Faithful! I obviously need to go and catch up on a few posts from yesterday. It sounds like Sunny is back in her home. Absolutely wonderful news. We need the comfort of our own home.
Nell good news that things were straightened out at your Moms home. That should never happen again. I think I remember that your Mom wouldn’t eat with the other residents at her other home and now she is. That is definitely a positive for her new residence.

Kelli, have a wonderful day. Such happiness for us when our children marry. I hope your hubby makes it.
Just a note our city finally got Uber. Can you imagine a city as large as Vancouver never had this convenience before. Our taxi industry is way too powerful.
NamcyAnne I love black pearls too. What a thoughtful gift.
Toni this will be a lovely trip for you too with the extra bonus of family time.
Nothing special planned for the day other than a few hours with my cleaning lady. That is my Valentine gift. Haha
Have a great day everyone...,

Good morning, it's a cold one today! We've had such a mild winter that temps in the teens really feel cold, though it's the norm overnight for winter in other years.

I got to Mom's yesterday, she was dressed and eating breakfast with her friend next door, had forgotten the problem of an hour before. I guess there is an advantage to memory problems. The day shift had finally arrived so they were staffed. Mom had always told me that she dressed herself in the mornings, I now know that isn't true. She can't dress unless someone hands her each piece of clothing, she doesn't know the order of putting on clothes.

Enjoy Hawaii, Maree! And I hope the wedding goes off as planned NancyAnne! You spend all that time planning, then it's over in one day. Enjoy!

Aloha Maree!

I'm up early to grab an Uber into the city for my daughter's wedding. I'm very emotional! SHOCKING!

DH's doctor called in prednisone for him yesterday. He appears slightly better this morning. He's going to try to come for the ceremony this afternoon. Fingers crossed.

I will catch up with everyone over the next couple days.

Aloha, Maree. Thanks for leaving us our early morning start here. I lift my cup of coffee to you. Is that ocean waves I hear? Palms swaying?

Toni - I can feel the energy as you count down the minutes to take-off. And yes, dear heart. We did enjoy that dinner. Lots of laughter and letting our minds wander everywhere as we touched on past pleasures and future plans.

Sunny - great news about the house. I'll bet the place is gorgeous. Isn't it wonderful to be close enough to share even minor holidays with all your loved ones?

Donna - Congratulations on getting in so many double workouts. How wonderful to keep your strength building through the winter, when it's so easy to succumb to couch potato-ism

NancyAnne - how sweet that your DH knows your favorite stone. My favorite is a garnet. That rich red just speaks to me.

Econlady - I too am curious about how you transport cookies - I'm presuming you'll fly. Will you carry them on. And good for your doctor for finding the best and safest sources for OTC meds. I hope the CBD continues to help you sleep

Nell - that story about the home is horrific. Thank goodness your son was there! Lordy I hope they get their staffing organized. You sure do deserve a week in Hawaii. Any way you could wangle that? Have a step child come stay with your DH?

Jamirblaze - absolutely - here's to a restful weekend

Young-at-Heart, Bea - hope y'all had sweet Valentine's days too

Kellie - haste to the wedding. Blessings on the couple. Health to your DH.

WE did get some sunshine yesterday - more promised for today and maybe not quite so cold. It's been a fairly mild winter - but I am tired of it. If we aren't going to get any snow I'd as soon have spring now. DH has boat fever and is planning a trip to the eastern shore to see another sailboat. He's so funny - he's always saying that THIS is the boat that will make me want to go cruising with him. It isn't, but the new swim ladder he finally found and put on his boat will certainly get me out there more often. I think a boat is merely a conveyance to get you to a swimming hole.

I'm feeling a bit weighed down after last night's heavy dinner. To think we used to eat such rich food every night! Well - panta rhei - as Hericlitus would say - All things flow.

Good morning and aloha to Maree!

I slept restlessly last night, pre-travel anxt, I'm guessing. Excited to be on our way. I'm all packed and ready for Colorado.

Nell - wow, not the call you want from a nursing home. Having your son's eyes on your mom was a very good thing. Inexplicable neglect on the part of the home.

I hope everyone had some loving moments yesterday, and hopefully, everyday, right? In general I like celebrating every little thing. It's very Sparky too, is it not? NSV's and all.

Kellie, So glad you are well and up to having a good time at the wedding! And so unfortunate your DH is still under the weather.

Sunny, exciting news about your house!!

Donna, I hope you slept well after your double workout. Earned!!

Econ, I'm beginning to hear all kinds of stories about CBD helping out in various ways. Let us know how it works overtime?

NancyAnne, I had to smile thinking of your DH going to your daughter for jewelry--remembering your daughter's fiancee's choice and the firestorm that ensued. I trust this transaction was much smoother! Pearls are so beautiful.

Bess, did you enjoy that dinner?

Hi to Jamir and Young at Heart!

Now let's launch the weekend, shall we?
