Greetings friends,  How are you this wonderful Thursday?   It is a beautiful day here and started out with cool breezes which made our walking very pleasant this morning.  Right now it is a warm 82.8 degrees with highs predicted to be in the high 90's today; we've turned on our a/c early because we have friends coming for dinner later today and we want to the house to be cool.  Usually I don't turn it on until the late afternoon but today we decided earlier is better.  So I am thankful that we have a/c; this is the first home we've ever had it in and our ceiling fan in our master bedroom seems to be having issues-actually we think the motor is getting really tired.  In lieu of that, a/c comes in really handy because I don't think I could sleep without some sort of cool air blowing.  I am thankful we live in the area we do and for each day.  I am thankful that I see a hint of fall in the plants and feel it in the air.  I am thankful for our dear friends who first grandchild is due next week, a little boy.  What fun they will have; I'm thankful for the internet so that they can send up photos since we aren't there.  I am thankful that I can clean wood floors with vinegar and water and not fuss with expensive cleaners.  I am thankful I get to get a hair cut/color done today-it always makes me feel good.  I am so excited and thankful that we are meeting some friends for dinner Sat. that we knew when we had young children and haven't seen in 27 yrs; they moved to Colorado and live about an hour from us and this is the first time we've managed to get a date on the calendar.  We've got a lot of catching up to do.
Have a day filled with gratitude-for the little as well as the big things.
Blessings, Noreen

  6. It is so nice to have friends come to dinner!! We use to have friends come very often. Then we lost 2 of our friends in automobile accidents in the same year.
    Two other couples moved away. We still have Tom's sister and her husband come once a year at either Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve. Hope you had a wonderful time last night!!
