Boat trip

we went on our boat trip yesterday and it was great fun. The kids all had fun anyway swimming and riding the lake I enjoyed it too and wished it could have been an all day thing  

Philosophy of Life

My sister-in-law sent me this in an email and it is so beautiful I must share it here   we never get what we want we never want what we get we never have what we like we never like what we have and still we live and love…………that’s life the best kind of friend…


it totally amazes me how when I have a day off, it flies by, but if I was working, it would drag on forever. My day off yesterday wasn’t that eventful. True I slept till seven forty-five then I took my bath so that put me at eight thirty. I did some cleaning, some rearranging…

I have been washing windows since six this morning. It is now almost nine am and I am almost finished. Just have eight more to go. It is a good feeling getting those out-of-the-way because I was really dreading doing them. But it is a pretty morning out there and the sun isn’t too unbearable,…
