Here are 3 statements and a question for Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun
I am trying hard to learn how to not complain and whine. Gossip makes me think thatwe are not as nice as we think we are.
When you try too hard you will always be disappointed. Can you really sleep like a baby when you are an adult?
And celebrating the small things
I love to see flowers in bloom on my balcony.
Usually by this time I have done my planting and enjoying the colorful blooms.
But for some reason I didn’t get any plants until today.
My balcony has looked so forlorn and lonely.
It has made me sort of sad seeing the empty pots and planters.
I am so looking forward to tomorrow; digging in the dirt.
There is something soul-satisfying about getting your hands in the soil
and seeing the fruits of your labor looking bright and beautiful.
I am celebrating the nurture of nature.
I am not much concerned with fashion. As long as I don’t look foolish or frumpy I am okay.
Once I wanted to weigh 120 pounds now I want to weigh 120 pounds but from the other side of the scale.
There is a fine line between being confident and being a bore.
Did you ever dream you couldn’t sleep and then woke to the alarm and felt you hadn’t slept?
And the Small Things I Celebrate this week
This week was an easy work week. Not a lot of “extra” stuff and no problems. I rarely have a “bad” day at work. My boss is easy to work for…he has his moment but don’t we all. My co-workers are just that co-workers no one is better than anyone else and everyone helps where and when needed.
And surprise, surprise, surprise! I have had two nights of seven hours of un-interrupted sleep. Amazing what that feels like.
1. Being old(er) is better than I thought it would be.
2. Do you ever wonder if everyone is crazy or is it just you?
3. When I relax I am alone because I only really relax when I am by myself.
4. The food I only eat at a restaurant is anything that has more than 5 ingredients
and takes more than 15 minutes to make because I am lazy
and don’t find the kitchen a fun place to be .
I celebrate my age…
which is not really a small thing it is a larger number. Still far from 3 digits though!
When I was doing the Friday Fill-In for this week I got to thinking about age. I am of an age that was once considered old but these days it is thought of as just being older. Partly because we don’t look as old as people my age used to look and because we don’t act as old. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that there are so many of us boomers and we just keep on rockin’
Because of my life-style when I was young there were those who thought I would be lucky if I lived to be forty. Surprise! Here I am more than a little over 40, still alive, still rockin’, and still a bit ditzy.
And I celebrate old friends and making new friends.
Most of the friends I have these days are of the younger than me variety. Usually, but not all of them, younger by 20 years or more! I love it. They are fun and eager for life, still ready for new and untried things. They help to keep me young with their enthusiasm and laughter. Why is it so many old(er) people are bored and rarely laugh? It’s sad. Anyway, I am going shopping with a new young friend tomorrow…what fun!
