Three Tidbits :)

I have figured out why Ron and I still like each other...and why we have stayed together for so long...almost every night I hold his hand (or arm) so that he doesn't float away from me- hehe.

Encouragement for us all...

Life would be easy...if it weren't so hard- hehe

Life Without a Plan

Most days, now, I get up without a specific plan for the day. hehe
There are certain things that need to get done each week. There are some days that we have a particular appointment or other commitment to make. But most days...I just go with the flow. I have decided that my best plan, is to get up, take a shower, and get dressed. If I do that first, then the rest of the day, I am ready for "whatever". Did I already mention that most days there is no alarm clock set either. (The regular exception to that is Sundays. Occasionally there will be a day, here and there that require an alarm clock, but normally not)When I say, "get dressed" my normal attire is my sweat pants. I have actually been thinking that I might need a "dressy" pair of sweat pants (if that exists) ;) It used to be that I would never let myself be seen in public in my sweat pants. I have decided that some where along the way there is a particular age that we all reach- where we are willing to be seen in almost anything. I guess I crossed that point a while back. hehe We do try to plan our "trips to town" now, just to cut back on a little of the driving. Everything, besides Bandera is 30 miles away. (Honda to the south, Kerrville to the north, Boerne to the northeast, and Helotes to the east- all 30 miles.) Some days the internet connection is frustrating- then, by default,  I just leave the computer alone, on those days. Other days, Ron, mom, and I are perfectly happy to go to our separate rooms, and spend hours on the computer. I spend quite a bit of time each week planning a Sunday school lesson (Old Testament). Of course there is the usual cooking, cleaning, and laundry to do. And I still have certain things that need to be done for the store. Then after that...I'm like what should I do today?? Work outside, unpack a box, hang something on the wall, read a book, watch TV, exercise, work on a sewing project, create something, etc, etc. It's like I am living life without a plan. I guess that is what retirement and old age are. I have been wondering how I would manage that. hehe

Beige, Gray and RED

They came and installed some window blinds today. I now have 2 rooms that aren't just beige and gray- I went crazy with a little RED :) "Sangria" in the bunk room and "Red Pepper" in my office. I wanted to do red in Ron's office, but chickened out and went for brown instead. All of the bathrooms and my office have top down/ bottom up blinds- I love those. I still have some rooms downstairs, where I haven't decided what to do on the windows yet- but most of the upstairs is done. I also saved some cute little "Chinese stuff" for my office. I figured that was the only room where I would do "whatever" I wanted ;)
