Happy Thursday to you! For those who work outside the home, you have only one day left until a long weekend-yippee! My post is a bit late today because I'm a bit tired and not feeling quite as perky as normal. Our oldest and her family left for a weeks vacation this morning and my dear man got up around 3:30am to drive them to the airport. I also got up and made sure hubby was up and ready for them. After he got back he kicked back for a bit and then we took our daughter's van to their house and picked up their little dog. She will be at the kennel for the week; I'd keep her but our dear Reggie doesn't tolerate her energy level very well. I took her on a walk with my friend and her Aussie and then we let them play in our back yard; I'm hoping that she was worn out when she got to the kennel. So this morning, I am very thankful that I am retired and can rest when I'm exhausted. I am thankful we live near our daughters and their families and can help out when they need it. I am thankful that Lilly, our daughters dog, loves to be here with us and is so very social-both with dogs and people. Tomorrow I have that "big" test that most 50 yr olds have and it means staying home today to do all the prep-drinking all sort of liquids and not eating. I am thankful that I don't work and have to worry about doing all the prep while at a job. I've put this test off for nine years now but finally giving in to the doctor and am having it done. I am thankful for those faithful friends and loved ones who are lifting me up-for grace to get this done. I am thankful for great friends and time spent together.
I am thankful for connecting with you, my blogging friends. For more TT posts please visit Iris at http://www.eph2810.com/ Since I will be tied up tomorrow with the test, I won't be posting until the weekend.
Be blessed today. Noreen
