Usually on Wednesday there is a Wednesday Hodgepodge from Joyce over at "From This Side of the Pond." Joyce is taking some well deserved time off. You know letting life happen and being able to enjoy it and be present for it. I'm so happy for her and proud that she recognizes that she needs to take time off.
It gives me an opporunity to play cahch up with all of you.
We are enjoying retirement and being able to make plans, change plans and do other stuff instead without feeling one bit upset about that. We nap when we want to, eat when and what we want to, and play at whatever we want to. God is so good, allowing us this time together.
My health holds steady. I'm on a new treatment that has "Death" listed as a possible side effect which was a bit scary at first, but 5 weeks into the new treatment, I'm still standing and feeling good. There are heavy steroids involved which stay in my body for 36 hours so I have a "steroid high" for a solid day and half. I'll take that over Death, any day!! I still have good days and bad days but thanks to God, I've been blessed with more good days. I feel so many prayers going up to God on our behalf. To say that this treatment is a breeze would not be true, however, I'm holding up pretty well compared to others who are on this same regimen.
Our grandgirls are a blast to be around! They makes us feel both young and tired at the same time. Our daughter and son-in-law are fantastic parents and have raised great girls. We love having them around and are so happy that we get to watch them. It both helps out our daughter and son-in-law with work schedules and allows us to play with them for a few hours a week.
Our Littles are still little and one of them, Divine, loves this summer heat -which we are having a lot of - while August is like Hubby and looking for cool spots to wait this heat out. AC is his best friend at the moment.
We are having a heat/rain wave. It seams that it is either really hot or really wet! We've had several days of downpours (glad we live on a mountain) and then it's just hot and muggy. I love it but no one else seems to. Winter is long and cold up here in New Hampshire so when summer finally shows up, I take full pleasure in it.
Well, I guess that's me in a nut shell. We are here, we are blessed, we are happy and happily retired.
How are you doing?
