Happy Birthday, S! & New Year's Eve...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about how I worked out in the pool at the YMCA/YWCA (Y), and why I do this.

Afterwards, I went to visit my real estate partner/friend C, at the rehab place where he is currently staying.  Hopefully, it is God's will to heal him, but it looks like it will be a slow process.  Thank you to those who have been praying for C; may God bless you, richly.  Please continue...

Arriving at home, I had work to do.  Not work for real estate, but work nonetheless.

Knowing that I was having company for New Year's Day dinner, I needed to get moving and begin preparing for the meal.  Okay, to some maybe it was to be more than a meal, a feast, perhaps.  In any case, I had work to do!

Eventually, I made my way to my daughter P's home.  After all, December 31st is my grandson S's birthday!

As per normal when it comes to family birthdays, I made a birthday cake!  Here's S with his cake, after he had blown out all the candles.  My camera didn't take the pic when I needed it to, so I took this photo, afterwards:

Happy Birthday, S!

Of course, after taking this pic, S put the first cut into the cake and we each enjoyed celebrating his birthday, with a slice of chocolate cake and chocolate icing!

Being New Year's Eve, normally I would have gone home and spent the rest of the evening with my husband, Gordon.  But, since he's dead that's not possible. 

For the last couple of years, I spent New Year's Eve with a friend.  But, this year is different.

Recently I received an e-mail from the contact person for our coffee singles' group, who used to meet once monthly at a Tim Horton's coffee shop.  This e-mail invited each recipient to attend a New Year's Eve celebration at a small church in the core area of Windsor.

That's where I headed!  Tomorrow, I'll write more about this.

Until next time...
