Good Morning Friends, I hope your week has been a good one! I got this picture from my daughter, of her youngest son and just had to share it with you. At a year and a half, this little guy is so active and quick; here he is in the bathroom yesterday. He figured out how to get up and into the sink in order to play with water. He just cracks me up! He is a handful to be sure; I love his personality. I know he will keep his family entertained and watchful for many years. I am so thankful for Life; for my beloved hubby-hard to believe we are approaching 36 yrs. together, for our daughters, sil's,and grands and for faith. Grandchildren have a way of making life so much richer.
Yesterday found me playing Pickleball and then walking afterwards. I had gone with the intention of "one last try", but am pleased to say that by wearing a rubber sleeve on my left knee, I'm not as sore today. I will continue to take each week as it comes because I really enjoy the sport, but I'm not willing to risk damage to my knees by playing. I am thankful that I am able to walk almost daily, to bike ride, to try new things like Pickleball.
I am thankful for this body I have and also the wisdom that comes with age-such as- I should have taken better care of it. I am thankful that hubby and I can play the same sport; I will say I'll stick with the beginners, while he plays with the very advanced players. Last night our sil took us to a semi-pro Hockey game; we've gone to two games before and while I never thought I'd enjoy it, I really do. Last night was such fun because we had two granddaughters with us; the past games we saw were very calm, but last night there were a few fights-I don't like that part of the game. My family keeps telling me that this is what hockey is all about. I am thankful for the chance to go again. Thankful that our sil invited us to go along. We have two of the worlds best sils!!! They rock!!! Today I will be taking Hunter for a walk with Kam and Lexie; I'm so thankful for Kam-she is such a wonderful friend. After we return and the air has warmed(side note-we are supposed to get up to 65 degrees today, then snow tomorrow), we will be going on our first bike ride this year. I am beginning to believe that biking is going to be my favorite type of exercise; I have also decided that if I have to stop Pickleball, I will get a stand for my bike-so I can ride inside all winter next year. Doesn't seem as fun but it beats being sedentary. We had some other good news this morning-we now have a future date that we will be moving to our new home. Yes!!! I hope your Thursday is filled with all that makes you smile and laugh. Hugs, Noreen
