My 100th Post

The following post is in celebration of my time on WordPress — one hundred posts since January, 2013.  My husband has retired a bit early, which is another reason for celebration, and he’s regaining his health and color more every day — the best reason for celebrating that I can think of.  Here’s to life and health!

Things I love about my life …

  • Slowly waking up, falling asleep again, rolling over, finally letting my eyes stay open.
  • Talking in bed, then spacing off in front of my computer while sweetums makes coffee.
  • Soaking in the hot-tub and talking, talking, talking.
  • Enjoying whatever the cook is in the mood to make for breakfast.
  • Spending the morning in our jammies, writing at our computers, sending each other emails … me upstairs, him in his downstairs studio … “This is funny.”  “You’ll like this.”  “Incredible musician – watch this clip!”
  • Meeting in the kitchen for soup or sandwiches or salad or leftovers.  Or maybe hopping in the car and sharing lunch out somewhere.
  • Afternoons spent doing housework or yardwork – sweet feeling of accomplishment.
  • Going for walks together, racking up steps on my Fitbit.
  • Healthy dinners, cooked with love.  A glass of wine served with conversation.  Reading side by side, watching TV, falling asleep, drifting back to bed for snuggles and more conversation.
  • Slowly waking up …

    “Talking in bed, then spacing off in front of my computer while sweetums makes coffee.” Just did this exact thing this morning. Gotta love a man who makes coffee, can cook, and likes doing both!

    I have an aversion to the word ‘bliss’ because I feel it’s overused, but this sounds like bliss! Another wonderful post, Judy. Thank you for sharing.

      And it does feel that way, sweet girl. I’m fully aware that there are people who resent the happiness of others, but I paid a heavy price to get to this point in life so I don’t worry about that. I’m glad you liked this — I appreciate your comment and that’s an understatement.



Talk to me, I'm soooo lonely ...
