Hawaii: My neighbor’s orchids. (Photos by Gigi):
Don’t those pretty orchids perk you up? I love to look at beautiful things. They brighten my mood and make me smile.
Today is Saturday. David and I will be watching a college football game on TV at 8:00 am, Hawaii vs. Colorado, which is being played in Boulder. I hope our team wins, but it is predicted that it won’t. Alas! I realize it is just a game, but still… Anyway, I would love to see views of Boulder, because I have never been there.
Tonight, we will be attending my 50th high school class reunion. How time flies! I can’t believe fifty years have elapsed since I graduated from high school. I am looking forward to seeing my former classmates – such as my ex-boyfriend, whom I dated during my junior and senior years. He is a dentist, much shorter than my husband. You all know how I prefer tall men.
Yesterday, my grandkids came to my home for the day. It’s always nice to see them. I do think that I am a better grandmother than I was a mother. More patient, perhaps? Of course, it may be due to the fact that I don’t have to raise them on a daily basis. I see them occasionally. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Or so it seems.
My life is full, and I am very happy.
