Today I had to change my scale and HRM watch to 57. Funny, I don't feel 57. I remember my grandmother at that age and she seemed much older. Are we really staying younger longer or am I just in denial? Anyway, the first person to give me birthday greetings was Tillie(my Wii Fit balance board.) She was wearing a little birthday hat and told me that my age was actually 49. Then I checked my email and found that there were numerous facebook messages.

Tonight the girls are taking me to the casino. It won't be a very late night because we all have to work tomorrow - and I am subbing at the school after Mass.

I almost forgot that a friend is taking me to lunch today. That's because I didn't write it in my planner. What would I do without my planner? Ummmm, I guess we all know, don't we?

I have decided that I need to ration my computer time. I am spending way too much time parked in front of the monitor. I haven't accomplished even a smidgeon of what I had hoped to in semi-retirement. So I am limiting myself to three 20 minute sessions which doesn't count taxes or business.

My new favorite soap at the moment is lemongrass. I started a bar of it yesterday and I love it. I have room sprays to make as soon as my new shipment of bottles comes in.

I'm off to the other blog. Have a great day.

Word of the day:
Thursday of the Fifth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel
Mk 7:31-37

Jesus left the district of Tyre
and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee,
into the district of the Decapolis.
And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment
and begged him to lay his hand on him.
He took him off by himself away from the crowd.
He put his finger into the man's ears
and, spitting, touched his tongue;
then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him,
" Ephphatha!" (that is, "Be opened!")
And immediately the man's ears were opened,
his speech impediment was removed,
and he spoke plainly.
He ordered them not to tell anyone.
But the more he ordered them not to,
the more they proclaimed it.
They were exceedingly astonished and they said,
"He has done all things well.
He makes the deaf hear and the mute speak."


God bless our troops!
