SNOW IN SUNNY FLORIDA


Hello my Dear Friends,

Well, snow is on the way to sunny Florida.  The next 3 days will be a hard freeze so guess what, my bottom is staying inside except to build my snowman .  I am so excited.  I have been away for awhile with my Blog as my mind is just that, blogged.  Lol, did I say that right.  Sometimes things just happen in life that can sure throw you for a loop but slowly making my way back.

Wishing you a great day, I'll be back soon.

HELLO FROM CHILLY FLORIDA


It's me wishing you a nice Wednesday afternoon.  Begining to get really cold here again, our low tonight 25 so burrrrr that is cold.  We have such pretty days that I feel as if Spring is almost here then look out, ole man winter decides to return once again.  

I have been sorta down lately and just not feeling up to doing my Blog.  My mind is so overloaded with , what is that word, "STRESS" that I can't think of what to post.  Don't want to load all my troubles on ya.  

Maybe by the weekend I will feel more up to doing this so until then, stay warm and smile.

A FUNNY FOR THE DAY

Aging Gracefully
Just before the funeral services, the undertaker
came up to the very elderly widow and asked,
"How old was your husband?" "98," she replied.
"Two years older than me"
"So you're 96," the undertaker commented.
She responded, "Hardly worth going home, is it? 
I've sure gotten old!
I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement,
new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes
I'm half blind,
can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine,
take 40 different medications that
make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts.
Have bouts with dementia.
Have poor circulation;
hardly feel my hands and feet anymore.
Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92.
Have lost all my friends. But, thank God,
I still have my driver's license.
My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.
Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.

Know how to prevent sagging?
Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.

It's scary when you start making the same noises
as your coffee maker. 


These days about half the stuff
in my shopping cart says,
"For fast relief."


THE SENILITY PRAYER :
Grant me the senility to forget the people
I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and
the eyesight to tell the difference.

Always Remember This:
You don't stop laughing because you grow old,
You grow old because you stop laughing.


So cold here in sunny Florida, Everyone, stay warm, safe and enjoy your day.

"He who marvels at the beauty
 of the world in summer 
will find equal cause for wonder
 and admiration in winter.... 
In winter the stars seem to
 have rekindled their fires, 
the moon achieves a fuller triumph, 
and the heavens wear a look 
of a more exalted simplicity."

 ~John Burroughs, 
"The Snow-Walkers," 1866
