More Celebrations!

You may/may not be aware that Blogger had a problem Thursday; not only was I not able to publish this entry on time, but my entry from Wednesday I was somehow lost and I had to rewrite and republish it.  Please accept my apologies for the interruption; this was totally out of my control.  Thank you.  Blessings...

In Wednesday's entry, I mentioned I might head to bed, early. Well, I did.

Just after 10:00 pm, I crawled into bed, hurting from head to toe, totally wiped out. Exhausted, doesn't even describe how I felt.

God blessed me with a wonderful sleep! Thank You, Lord!

Even though my alarm was set to wake me at normal time, I awoke earlier than I had planned. No matter how hard I tried to go back asleep, I just couldn't. So, after about a half (1/2) hour of lying in bed awake, I finally got up. It was 6:15 am!

Oh well. So much for trying to catch up on missed sleep and trying to allow my body to recuperate from being over used. Truly, I cannot complain. It was a restful seven and a half (7 1/2) hours sleep! Again, thank You, Lord!

In addition to exercising as I normally do, I have increased intensity. This may be one contributing factor to my body hurting. Of course, I am Rheumatoid Arthritic. Duh! Even so, I am hurting more than I normally do.

Nevertheless, I will not give up! I'm not that kind of person. So, I did what I always do during the week. I went to work out at my friend M's!

On the way home, I stopped to get milk and a couple of things. Today, wasn't meant to be a shopping day, but I knew that if I wanted to make mashed potatoes for tonight's dinner, I had to buy milk.

Milk is something I don't normally keep in my home, anymore. Gordon used to love to drink milk and believe me when I say, he drank a lot of milk!

However, since Gordon's death, I rarely have milk in my home.

I've never been a milk drinker. Even as a child I didn't like milk. My parents told me that even as a toddler, I didn't want to drink it.  I think it's kind of funny really, because my Dad was a milkman for many years!

An exception to the norm is when I am expecting company, as I am this evening.

My neighbour/friend K will be one guest. She told me yesterday that she's going to be moving to another unit in our building. I knew that in K's heart, she truly wanted to live on the east side of the building. How did I know this? Well, whenever she would come to visit me, she'd make sure to let me know how much she loved my view!

K won't be moving to the new unit, until September. I know, she'll still be in the building, but it won't be the same once she moves, for she will be living on another floor. Gone will be the days when we open our doors and hand over plates of food, while clad only in our housecoats, or whatever.

In any case, K will be one of my guests, tonight. My friend/co-worker C, whose birthday is in a few days will be joining us. He's picking up two (2) friends who live downtown and bringing them with him. Both L (who is a widow) and B are Christian Singles' Cafe friends. B will be having a birthday in a few days, also. L worships with me.

I'm looking forward to having a great time of fun and fellowship this evening. And hopefully, a great roast beef dinner, too! I'll keep you posted.

Until next time...
