Well last week we could barely stand the cold and the temp here this morning is 61 degrees!! Daffodils and Forsythia are blooming in my neighborhood. Let's go for a wade.
1. Well after I reported that Steel Magnolias is being re released in theaters, I see that Gone with The Wind is coming back to the big screen for a limited time as well. I love Gone with the Wind but I have seen it in the Big Theater twice so not sure that I will return for the showing. Four hours is a long time to sit for an old lady.:)
2.I have become addicted to cleaning videos on You Tube. There is something very calming about watching these young wives and mothers cleaning their houses. It is supposed to motivate me to clean and I have to admit, some days it does! I have found some new cleaning products thanks to these channels.
3. On the retirement front...we are still adjusting. Right now it seems we are on a continual weekend. We stay up late and sleep late. And while this has been nice I am a creature of habit and being off "schedule" has been hard for me. I tell myself we have worked all our lives to enjoy this season of life so just relax a bit.
4.I am seeing a lot of posts about Kon Mari. Basically getting rid of things that do not bring you joy. I read a little about Marie Kondo who started the craze and its seems she is almost obsessed by tidying. As a girl, she would become very anxious if she could not find something to tidy and toss. Sorry ladies but as an old nurse, when I read this I was troubled by her actions. It just seems that we are a world of extremes lately. Crazes come and go. Diets are the same way. Why don't we all just calm down and enjoy our lives?
5. We continue to sort through photographs. Ours and Marvin's parents photos. One of our Sunday School Friends said that they scanned their old photos and put them on a flash drive. That maybe an answer for us, allowing us to get rid of the paper copies without guilt.
6.One of my third cousins celebrated her birthday for the second time in one week. She has two birthdays. She was born at the end of January but her father did not get to the records office to record her birth until the following week, He put down her birthday as February 5th as that was the day he went to the registry. So she gets to celebrate twice, her real birthday and her legal birthday. Sounds like a win win to me.
Have a blessed day Friends.
