Old friends – I ran into an old friend this week. We worked together 20+ years ago. After I left the job we’d get together occasionally but lost contact in the past few years. Not even a Christmas card. She is considerably older than me and I always worry that there is an illness or even death when I don’t get that Christmas card. We are having lunch in January. She is healthy enough to get around. As you get older you always those aches and pains and other things that aren’t too limiting. She looks pretty fabulous for her 80’s. #bestgiftever!
Speaking of no card – Many years ago, I didn’t get a Christmas card from one of my childhood best friends. She lives in another state so I hadn’t seen her in a few years. I didn’t think much of it until I saw her obituary the following March. She had been ill for some time. #nocardequalspanic
Hot, hot, hot –Recently I was at a favorite Mexican restaurant with some friends. We tried a new special and unanimously decided that it needed to be served with a hot sauce. I put some on the leftovers at home and it kicked it up a notch. Lately I’ve been eating my foods spicier. I rarely eat a sandwich without horseradish AND hot peppers. Surprisingly, I have less indigestion issues. #gofigure
Things that go bump in the night – I heard a thump. I have cats so I don’t react to noise. However, the covers went flying off. I do react to cold! The beloved husband was on the floor. He took the covers with him. I asked what happened and he wasn’t sure. One minute he was sleeping with vivid dreams and the next he was on the floor with a pile of blankets. #thinkingofchildguards
Songs to love – I love Christmas carols but some radio stations take this opportunity to play the worst trash camouflaged as a Christmas song. The Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie is one of my favorites! #realcarols
So how was your week?
