Hope you all had a great Sunday.  I didn't make it to Church this morning.  Just didn't get up.  Sleep patterns have changed a bit and for some reason I'm just staying up late.  Seem to have a boost of energy beginning around 5 or 6 pm and I get busy doing stuff.  Kind of odd for me.  It's not a bad thing, I sure get a bunch of things done.  Had church anyway.  Just me and my Chiweenie "Wendy".  Walked our mile and a half, prayed and sang.  It was good.  I'd take a picture of her but she's belly up on the couch sleeping all wrapped up in a throw.

One of the things I'm learning about from reading stuff about aging is to keep busy, keep learning, keep interested.  So, that's what I'm doing.  Funny thing is I keep learning more about myself.  You'd think at 72 I'd know myself by now but it just isn't so.  Surprises me.  Interesting too.  Like I didn't know that I would push myself like I'm doing.  I just get up out of my recliner and go do something. Usually something I don't want to do.  Like the dishes or straightening up the living room or going outside and straightening up out there.  I don't plan to do it, I just get up and go for it.  I have to ask myself what I did with Judy.  Where'd I put her.

The thing is, I like it!  I like it alot!!!  When I first realized I was retired (that's another story), I just sat down.  Didn't go much, except what was necessary.  Didn't do much either.  That lasted a pretty long while.

Glad that's over.  Don't think I've been happier in a very very long time than I am now.  Life is still life for sure and every week has it's challenges.  Some are pretty rough and sometimes a little scary.
There is a huge difference now that I wasn't aware of before.  And it's amazing to me.

I'll have to finish this next time cuz I've run out of room.  Tomorrow is Monday and lots of opportunities ahead.  Blessings and come back tomorrow for the rest....   Judy
