I know most of you started the day off like myself thanking God for giving me three amazing children. Not a day goes by that I don't give thanks for you my friends and my family.
Yes it has been a long dry spell between post again. I keep thinking and hoping that these droughts of my not writing are over but a promise I can not seem to keep.
Don't think for a minute though that you not in my thoughts and prayers. Not a day goes by that I wonder how you are and what your doing. Being on a tractor from morning til night gives this ole grandma plenty of time for thinking.
I over did it with the mowing about two weeks ago and ended up in the emergency room for the day. I promised myself that since our temps are already in the high 80's on most days that I would stop around 2pm and not go out again until 5 pm and mow until dark. Not being in the heat during 2 and 5 should help keep from any more emergency room visits.
Many of you over the years have expressed your wishes for me to hook up with the cowboy that once lived here or just get out and meet someone. Years ago I decided dating at my age was too stressful and not for me. WELL you will be happy to know I gave it one more chance.
Yes I had a date! My long time friend Sharon husband found out that I was not seeing anyone and he asked me to meet a good friend of his who had lost his wife several years ago. I only agreed because Lew mentioned that his friend was becoming a hermit and since I totally get the hermit lifestyle I said Okay.
The four of us went out to dinner last Saturday night. Lew was right he was a very nice man. Well known and respected in our small town. I had heard of him but never met him.
I have to tell you that your crazy friend totally drove herself and others crazy days before the date. Nervous was not the word for it. It felt like I was sixteen again and scared out of my mind. Even had a breakout on my face just like a teenager.
You ask why would a ole woman let herself get this way. Good question? All I know is never again. ha ha
When I met him I realized that the near nervous breakdown was totally for no reason. It helped that Lew and him were such good friends because they kept the conversations going. Sharon and myself were just there.
Probably should not say this because I could be really wrong but at times I felt he was only concerned of Lew having a good time. ha ha
He called me a few days later and told me that he had a wonderful time and that if the three of us ever wanted to do that again to be sure and give him a call. Even Lew looked at me funny when I passed this on to him. In the old days I never called a guy for a date can not see that happening now.
Honestly I have let to many years pass since dating anyone. I am too set in my ways and expect maybe a little too much from a man. How could I be so picky you might ask when I am no young chick? In fact another year has passed because Tuesday is my Birthday!
Christi has made plans for us to have massages and lunch that day. Really sweet of her. I could use a good massage and will let you know how that turns out. We both have Fibromyalgia so that has kept me from getting massages in the past. I think explaining to them not to be to rough on me will be the best bet for not paying for it days later.
It seems I have gone on and on about myself so let me say good night before you fall a sleep on me.
Know I think of you often and pray that you are well. Sending you much love and I hope this week brings you nothing but joy. Hopefully most of you are enjoying warmer temps and beautiful flowers by now.
Sweet Dreams and Love to All,
