What Am I . . .


Doing?
Working, typing a blog, thinking.

What exciting new idea did I have today?
Remember yesterday's blog when I told you about two historical novels I had planned? Got an idea for a title to the hobo one. Yeah!

Eaten today?
Do I have to tell all? Okay, here goes . . . drink my Reliv, drink a cup of coffee, ate about a cup of chicken soup, ate one slice of pizza, some carrot and cucumber slices, banana. And my water. So far . . . that's it. (Ha, you thought you'd catch me gorging on more, didn't you?)

Wearing?
Black skirt, peach/orange blouse, white sweater. (Boring!)

Who have I talked to? Hubby, pastor, phone people, store people. That's it!

How do I feel? Tired, stayed up too late last night. Excited about title idea. Looking forward to weekend, sort of.

Doing tonight? Hubby's ultimately over the youth groups in our district, so . . . attending a youth function tonight--possibly. If not, then tommorrow, for sure.


Words that impressed me today? Live like you were dying. Profound words!

Currently reading? Janice Thompson's "The Wedding Caper" published by Barbour's new cozy mystery division.

Scripture that helped me: Psalm 91:14 "Because he hath set his love upon me . . ." How wonderful to know He loves and cares for me!

Wishing for you today? Someone to love and love you back. Fulfillment of your dreams. Satisfying work.



Read on. If you feel sympathy, then you might be a senior! Grin!
An elderly Florida lady did her shopping then returned to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags, drew her handgun, proceeded to scream at the top of her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!"

The four men didn't wait for a second invitation. They got out and ran like mad.

Skaken, the lady loaded her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. But she couldn't get her key into the ignition. Then she noticed there was a football, and a Frisbee in the front seat.

A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces further down the parking lot. She loaded her bags in her own car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.


Moral of the story? If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it memorable.




More hints to help save your sanity:

If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something inside (as I so often do), place the envelope in the freezer for an hour or two. Voila! It unseals easily.

Love this one: Hate foggy windshields? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep it in the glove box of your car. Works better than a cloth.

Listen: Pin a small safety pin to the seam of your slip and you won't have a clingy skirt or dress.



"This says it all" quote:
Time passes. Life happens. Distance separates. Children grow up. Jobs come and go. Love waxes and wanes. Men don't do what they're supposed to do. Hearts break. Parents die. Colleagues forget favors. Careers end.

And as King Sol was so fond of saying: Vanity, vanity, all is vanity.

Now that's a nice discouraging note to end on today, isn't it?

But . . . "you're my friend--what a thing friendship is, world without end!" --Robert Browning


Blessings.
