I am 60. i have 2 adult children & between them I have 2 grandgirls & 1 grandson. I worked as a psych nurse in a hospital setting for over 25 yrs. It's great being retired! I love to read, take walks enjoying nature & going to movies! I currently live in Minnesota & am from Wisconsin originally. I am so sorry but i have enough connections to keep track of!! I do apologize as I would love to accept everyone! Thank you for visiting ♥ ♥ ♥

    done!! did some rearranging so old stuff isn't on the bottom! hubby did the grocery shopping today so this was timely!

    a low key day. overcast but I did take a walk. saw 9 wood ducks on the marsh!! they are so shy. when I got too close they would swim away! they are so pretty! I saw robins on the side of the trail & enjoyed listening to the red wing blackbirds! they have such a pretty call.

    I got a surprise today & was able to watch a muskrat eating on the marsh. I had read up on muskrats a while ago & learned that they eat on an eating platform that is away from their home. they are very tidy animals. he/she was on a bit of mud with dried cattail grasses covering it on the marsh just eating away!! his/her home was just behind them. I also saw my first chipmunk today!! so fun seeing spring awakening the wildlife!!

    I hope everyone can have an enjoyable & restful sunday!

    thank you Kris & Vivian for your nice encouragements! ♥ ♥

    I have a lot of chronic neck & shoulder pain related to arthritis & fibromyalgia. yrs ago when my father was dying, I couldn't turn my head to look over my shoulder when I was driving. I saw a chiropractor who basically told me to do stretching exercises which I have done pretty much daily ever since!!

    I checked at the vet's & the cat I am interested in got her vaccines yesterday after I had left. she may need her teeth cleaned & I will find out if I should leave her there until it's done or take her home & then take her for that appointment. we will see!! my husband is very excited & wanted me to bring her home yesterday!! I want to be sure everything is in order. the vet who knows her history & care was off today. hopefully Monday I will find out more! I got a 3rd litter box so we can keep her in a room with a litter box to help acclimate her to the house slowly. she is a very shy cat & overwhelmed at the clinic with all the noise, people & animals.

    I hope everyone has a nice wknd!!

    I love ginger! one of my favorite spices. rosemary is a close second!

    we had a super cloudy day today & drizzly rain by the end of the afternoon! more rain later! a great day for sleeping in!

    the flying squirrels have been back. it's so fun to put whole peanuts in their feeder & watch them come out to get them!

    I took my cat Oscar to the vet for his 3rd & final eye check up. good news, his ulceration has completely healed! no more eye drops!! yay!! the vet's office had a cat that an owner surrendered that we are considering giving a trial at our house to see if she works out. we really want to find a cat companion for Oscar. he seems lonely since his buddy Vinnie passed on.

      Yay! I am happy to hear that Oscar's eye has healed. Exciting news about the possibility of a new kitty. I don't think I have ever seen a flying squirrel before. I am sure they are interesting creatures.

    367 points for our pact Sarah!! thanks for pacting!! ♥

    I was just at my daughter's house after getting the grandkids after school. I brought my tater tot casserole & brownies. that pan of brownies was gone by the time my daughter got home late from work!! my grandson's dad got back from London where he goes for one week a month for his job. well, he brought my grandson several books that we read!! I think I read about 5 of them. fun to see tires spelled tyres & mom is mum!! the stores were great for a boy about dragons, dinosaurs, monsters (nice ones), pirates & cars!! that was fun!

    I guess in answer to my challenge I would have to say my grandkids & daughter for today!! my cat missed me & was meowing when I got home!! if I could say an animal too, my cat Oscar rates in there too!! ;-)

    my nephew is getting married in San Jose, California this upcoming June. I googled San Jose as I was curious where it was & learning a bit about the city! I am not sure if I will be able to attend but it was fun seeing where San Jose was on the map, that it is the center of silicon valley & is close to San Francisco! and it has over a million people living in it!!

    today we had an enjoyable afternoon with my daughter & the grandkids!! my grandson turned 5 & was so excited for cake & presents!! so fun!! my husband bought candles that relight when you blow them out. fortunately he had fun trying to blow them out numerous time!!

    day 2 Sarah ♥ ♥ of our pact!!

      I remember when I traveled with my step mother to Europe, I would stand in the back & exercise my legs going up on tip toe or stretching my calves, etc. the stewardesses would get annoyed with us in the back! we will have to see!!
