Counting My Blessings One Friend At-A-Time ~ Part Three

Some friends come into our lives for a short time, others stay in our hearts and our lives forever.  Glenna (as I shall call her for the purpose of blogging) is a forever friend.  We have known each other for nearly forty years.  We met when we worked together in Omaha.   When the company transferred me to Denver, I brought her with me.  We became roommates and were together almost constantly.  Life was good.

On weekends, we would hear the mountains outside of Denver "calling" us and we'd pack a lunch and take a road trip - an all day trip - to somewhere different each time.  We would go up on one road and come home on another, listening to Willie Nelson singing "On the Road Again" on the car's cassette player.  We talked, we laughed, we stopped to sight see, we took pictures, and we made plans to go out again in two weeks.

Glenna lives in Nebraska now and I live in Arizona.  We haven't seen each other in many years, but we talk on the phone a few times a year.  We still laugh, we cry, we catch up on what our kids and grandkids are doing, we compare aches and pains like older women are apt to do.  I miss her terribly, and I know she misses me.  Life just doesn't seem fair sometimes, when good friends are separated by circumstances.

Blessings in the form of good friends are so precious.  I treasure each one.  As I write these Sunday Blessing blogs I am finding no shortage of "treasures" to tell you about.  It would bless me doubly if you'd tell me about one of your best friends in your comment.  We can then, be blessed together! 

Hugs & Happy Sunday!

My Cooking Is A Crock

Yesterday I made beef stew in my crock pot.  It is supposed to be a slow cooker, but someone didn't get the memo.  It cooks fast, very fast.  I could never start something in the morning and let it sloooowwwww cook all day - it would be dehydrated by supper time!  So, I started it right after lunch.  It was a simple no recipe stew.  Just a package of stew meat browned, carrots, onions, and potatoes cut up, a little water, some seasoning and two cans of stewed tomatoes. 

Our friend Lulu was staying for dinner, so I set the table with my new dishes (see previous post about Retail Therapy).  Then, I got out the bread machine and started some sour dough bread.  In about two hours, the aroma was taking over the house!  It was about that time that I discovered that I had used Italian Style stewed tomatoes, which have peppers as one of the ingredients.  Oops!  Lulu is deathly allergic to anything with any form of peppers - sliced, spiced, anything!  Now I really felt bad.  I had looked at the labels, but obviously, my aging eyes glanced right smack over the two important words - Italian Style

It took me a while, but I finally found a soup that didn't have any peppers, so (whew!) that saved the day!  (And, Lulu!)  Dinner was still good to go!  Before we ate, LuLu and I delivered a big bowl of the stew to my neighbor and friend, Pansy, who was in the doldrums with a bad toothache.  I was sure this would be the perfect cure!

Yes, of course there is a point to all this jabbering.  It is that after dinner I got to thinking about me and the kitchen.  I used to love to cook meals, especially for company and family gatherings.  Now, not so much.  There is no apparent reason.  The older I get, the lazier I get about certain things.  It felt good to cook that stew.  It felt even better to share it with friends.  Who cares if we have leftovers or not.  Isn't it more important to share what we have with others?

Is it just me, or do you find yourself taking the easy way to dinner, tossing something together at the last minute?  What have I become?  You know, I even dream of a large kitchen with a double oven, stainless steel appliances, a huge refrigerator, an island with its own sink for prepping foods.  Then, I dream of the ultimate outdoor kitchen, complete with a fireplace, refrigerator, sink, and drawers for dishes and utensils.  I could live here, I tell myself.  I would live here, I say again....if only...maybe someday...

But, that will most likely never happen, so I had a little chat with myself after dinner.  Learn to love the galley kitchen you have and make use of that cookbook collection that you love.  Create a meal, don't just throw one together!  Tempt the palate, tantalize those taste buds, perk up the presentation - you can do it!  Go forth and COOK!  And, I shall!

My Bladder Has Radar!

“Nature is calling.” How often do we find ourselves saying that lately? You know the feeling – the urgency, the rush to get to the bathroom once the brain gets the message. Well, I’m here to tell you that my bladder has radar! I am okay driving home, and still fine when I pull into the driveway. But, the second my foot steps into the house, the urgency hits and I must make a mad dash down the hall, hoping all the while that I will get before disaster strikes.

It’s another of the blessings of aging.   I’ve had many bosses who stressed a sense of “urgency” in the workplace…well, now we have stress urgency in the home place! We aren’t incontinent, but we leak when we laugh, or cough, or get up too quickly. We used to giggle at our grandparents when they tooted as they walked; now we are afraid to move lest we sound like a duck!   How did this happen to us?

There must be some help for this, if not a cure. My doctor prescribed some pills for me which only made the matter worse! They are still sitting in my medicine cabinet since I refused to take any more. That wasn’t the answer. Crossing my legs till they turn blue isn’t practical, so what am I to do? I drink more water because I have read that that helps, even though it sounds like it would make the situation worse. I head for the bathroom the minute I feel my bladder is full. I even resort to using the restrooms in stores if I must.

All this is probably more than you ever wanted to know about me, but listen…this is important! You younger ones can go ahead and laugh while you can…your day will come, too. Those of us of a certain age are no longer smiling. We are hesitant to walk across the room, afraid we will be mistaken for a whoopee cushion! I am hoping going to the gym three times a week will strengthen the necessary muscles in order to solve the problem. Do you have any suggestions? If so, post them here so we can give them a try!

And, if your bladder also has radar, I’d love to know I am not the only one!

    15 Tips To Get You Organized For Christmas

    Holiday time is a good time for lists.  Creating them keeps us on track for projects, and at this time of year, for getting ready for Christmas or your favorite holiday.  I usually have a mental list, but I do much better when I write things down. 

    Today, I thought I'd share my list with you and maybe give you a tip or two you might not have thought of:

    1.     Make a list of everyone you need to buy gifts for, including their sizes, things they would like and how much you can spend.

    2.     Make a list of everyone you want to send Christmas cards to - write the cards or at least address the envelopes. Keep a few cards with you to write during "waiting minutes" when you're at the doctor, picking the kids up from school or on a work break.

    3.     Finish sewing, knitting, crocheting, and/or craft projects now – don’t wait until the last minute.

    4.     Decide what cookies and candies you want to make. Set aside the recipes now.

    5.     Mix up the dough several weeks ahead and freeze. That way all you have to do later is bake them.

    6.     For cookies that you can't freeze, measure all the dry ingredients and put them in a plastic bag. You can even do this three months ahead. Be sure to label the bag so you remember what is in it!

    7.     Decide what you are going to serve for holiday dinners. Set aside the recipes.

    8.     Several months ahead of time, put a bag or container in the freezer and put in any unused slices of dry bread to use for your turkey dressing.

    9.     Deep clean the house.

    10.  Organize your gift wrap, make sure you have enough paper, ribbon, bows, tape,  etc for the gifts you will be wrapping.

    11.  Get out the tree and ornaments and decorate the house (outside, too, if you do that).

    12.  Mail Christmas cards

    13.  Listen to Christmas music – it will get you in the mood for all things holiday.

    14.  Bake cookies to be used for gifts and mailings, and get them delivered or on their way.

    15.  Make time to enjoy the season – window shop, take a drive to see the lighted houses, go caroling.

    Your list may be different from mine, but the point is, a list can be helpful during this busy, stress-filled time of the year.  Happy to-doing and a have the best holidays ever!

    It’s Wonderful – And I Am Stuck Here

    Yesterday HB (HoneyBunny) and I were invited to a friend’s home for dinner.  It was wonderful, and that is the problem.  Not the dinner, or the company, but that word…wonderful.  It was stuck in my head and it just kept popping out of my mouth every time I commented on something.  The worst of it was that I knew it was coming and I was helpless to stop it or change to a different word!  Everything was wonderful, just wonderful.

    Have you ever gotten stuck on a word and repeated it over and over until you wanted to slap some tape over your mouth to stop it?  The older I get, the more often this seems to happen.  I have been around some elderly people (that would be anyone more than a few years older than me) who have done this, but mostly they were unaware of it.  They just kept on with their stories and didn’t miss a beat, never realizing that they were saying the same word in every sentence.

    So, why should I be concerned?  Well, because.  (Sigh!)  Because it makes me conscious of my aging and it scares me that I may one day slip into dementia and never be the wiser.  I worry for those who will take care of me in later years.  They will be the ones who hear me retelling the same stories and using one word to extremes.  They will listen, and smile, and suffer and I will be unaware of the effect I am having on them.  I know firsthand how that feels and it isn’t a good thing.  Both of my parents were diagnosed with and died from complications of Alzheimer’s disease.  It is harder on the family than on the person with the dementia.  I don’t want that to happen to me – or my children, but I doubt I will have much say in the matter.

    With that in mind, I would like to let my children know, and those who will one day take care of me, that I appreciate all of the energy, patience, hugs, smiles, and caring that they will give me.  I know the guilt they will feel (oh, yes, sorry to say that is also a part of the process) and the toll it may take on their health and family.  I love them for it now (because I may not be able to express myself so well one day).

    For now, though, my life is wonderful, just wonderful!

    Counting My Blessings One Friend At-A-Time - Part Two

    Friends are like a bouquet of blessings.  Each has their own gifts to share.  This is the second in a series of Sunday Blessings – Friends Who Bless just by being.

    LuLu (as I shall refer to her in my blog) and I met a few years ago when we were both involved in our local Relay For Life event.  I was a team captain and she was a fellow cancer survivor.  We had a mutual friend and through that friend we came to know each other.  It was obvious from the beginning that LuLu had come into my life for a reason and it was no coincidence.  I don’t believe in coincidences.  It was a God thing.  There were and are things I needed to learn and she was going to be one of my teachers, though I doubt if even she realized that at the time.

    Of course, I didn’t know that part until later, but right from the start I noticed her humbleness, a quirky sense of humor and a heart for God.  The most important lesson I am learning from her is how to be a servant – to do for others and care for others in any situation - without grumbling.  I was already doing and caring, but this lesson is taking me to another level.  I am forever grateful to her for that.

    She became my "right arm" as we both took on the responsibilities of Chairs of the Relay For Life for two years.  Our personalities and abilities created a wonderful team as what one of us didn't think of , the other usually did.  We planned, we organized, we laughed, we struggled, we prayed...and the events came together like never before.  We both know this was not our doing, but God's. 
    LuLu is teaching me by example how to pray out loud.  This may sound silly.   I can think the words, but when anyone else is around, the words just will not come out of my mouth.  Her prayers are straight from the heart and that is how I want mine to be.  One day I will surprise us both by spouting out a prayer of my own – aloud – and probably give us both a start!  In the meantime, I continue to speak with Him silently and thank Him for adding so many blessings to my life, especially my friends.

    Book Review: The Next Thing I Knew (Heavenly)

    Book Review: The Next Thing I Knew (Heavenly)
    by John Corwin

    Kindle Edition
    Published July 12th 2011
    A good read, easy to follow, and well-written, this work of fiction was very enjoyable, even though I am not usually a fan of the paranormal.   The story begins with a group of high school acquaintances apparently dead, in a type of afterlife, along with everyone else in their town.  It doesn’t take them long to figure out that all human life appears to have been extinguished by some mysterious force. 
    This group of teens soon sets out to discover the truth behind the deaths and how they can save the world from being taken over.  With a lot of help from the nerdy friends in the group, they find ways to accomplish tasks and maneuvers that previously would have been thought of as magic, if not totally impossible for the human mind to comprehend.
    The characters were likeable (well, most of them) and the interaction between them was very much as one would expect of teenagers.  The story had a bit of romance, jealousy, mystery, a lot of adventure as one might expect - and a touch of sexual content that in my opinion did not need to be there.  When I began reading I thought a couple of my grandchildren might enjoy the reading, but as I read further, I have to say I could not in good conscience recommend it for young adults – at least not mine.  That’s just me, however, and each reader should make their own call on that issue.

    Over all, the book held my interest throughout, entertained me, and I was not able to guess what would happen next, which made it all the more exciting to read.  I found it difficult to put down.  I would definitely read other books by this author and recommend his works to others.

    Stand UP For Fall Prevention

    Did you know that Fall is the time of year assigned to Fall Prevention awareness?  I didn’t.  But what a great tie-in to a serious issue for seniors.  Take it from someone (me) who has taken an unexpected tumble or two – it is humbling and it hurts to lose your balance or trip over something silly and come crashing down all all fours.  <<<Ouch>>>  Studies show that more than 30 percent of falls result in hip or head injuries.  Let’s face it, neither of these is a good thing!

    Here are some of the facts:

    ·       In 2008, 82% of fall deaths were among people age 65 years or older

    ·       In 2008, more than 19,700 older adults died from unintentional fall injuries

    ·       Fall-related fractures occur more than twice the rate for older women than for older men

    ·       More than 90% of hip fractures are caused by falls.  And, white women have significantly higher hip fracture rates than black women

    ·       Direct medical costs of falls equaled @28.2 billion last year alone

    (Source: Sierra Vista Herald, October 18, 2011 issue.)

    This issue of falling has become a problem throughout our nation – and is for the most part, avoidable.  For instance, getting rid of those pesky throw rugs is a big help!  Moving obstructing furniture is another.  Eliminate of any sort of tripping hazard now while you are thinking about it.  Install grab bars in your bathrooms.  Make sure your lighting is as good as it gets!  Brighter is better as we age.

    However, don’t let a fear of falling stop you from doing things you love to do.  Instead, exercise regularly to regain and maintain your balance and steadiness on your feet.  Go slowly with the workouts, and it is always a good idea to check with your doctor before starting a new regimen.  Aim for balance and strength activities such as Tai Chi, for example.  Also important is scheduling regular eye checkups. You may even want to consider an extra pair of glasses with single vision distance lenses for when you take Spot for a walk around the neighborhood.

    So…STAND UP for fall prevention!  The next fall may be your own.  Oh, Goodness!   I don’t even want to think about that!

    Retail Therapy, Step One

    The last few days I have had the blahs, and, well...sorta felt like a slug.  There was no energy, just a mental list of things that needed to be done nagging at me - like buying groceries because my creative self was running out of ideas with the cupboards almost empty.  My friend, Pansy tried to cheer me up with a funny story, I tried napping and reading, but I was doomed to feeling yucky.

    Today I took matters into my own hands and went shopping for some tableware and new dishes that we had needed for some time.  This was step one.  Step two will be to get some seasonal decorations for the center of the table so that candle doesn't feel too lonely.  Replacing our faded glasses is on the list, too.

    After reading DIY Natural blog, I bought cloth napkins instead of paper.  After reading Tablescapes by Diane blog I had the itch to mix and match my dinnerware and work on a centerpiece.

    Target was my store of choice.  There I found almost everything I was looking for right away.  The dinnerware is melamine, and square is new for us.  The napkins are a similarpattern in similar colors, the tablecloth is brown.  I also purchased a green tablecloth with matching napkins.  Placemats were on my list, but there were none that "grabbed" me.  I'll keep looking.

    Retail therapy works.  I feel better.  My bank account is feeling a little sickly, but that will pass.  Even HB (HoneyBunny) perked up when I started pulling all these items out of the bags.  Our redneck table is now a bit dressier and just a smidge more elegant. was a good afternoon!

    Has retail therapy helped you out of the doldrums?  Want to share with us?  Awww, come on...we'd love to hear about it!

    Louise Hay

    This is a little reminder to myself that I need to be open to new ideas, new ways of doing things, new looks at old stuff.  I do need reminding, especially as I grow older.  Getting set in my ways was never one of my goals in life.  I want always to be learning something new - everyday.

    So, today, as I go about my errands and chores, I will strive to keep this thought at the forefront and to see what I can learn.  How about you?  I'd love to hear what's "new" in your life today!

    Counting My Blessings...One Friend At-A-Time

    Everyone should have a friend like my neighbor, whom I'll call Pansy in my writings, to open our eyes to the world of the handicapped – or maybe just to the world in general.  Pansy has MS.  Her legs are wheels (a motorized wheel chair).  Her view of the world, by necessity is different than mine.  She sees blockades where I see speed bumps.  She lives with dust balls on her ceiling fans until a friend can wipe them clean for her.  A dog toy or a spilled planter can trap her in her living room.  She has to schedule appointments around friends who will drive her.  She can’t reach the top shelves of closets or cupboards in the kitchen. 

    More important, though are her observations that I miss completely most days…the view from her windows, or her patio.  She notices the seasonal changes, the wind moving the trees.  She photographs the birds and critters that venture into her yard.  She monitors daily changes in the moods or health of her greyhound pets.  I miss those sights most days because I don’t take the time.
    Photos by "Pansy"

    Pansy is a child of God, who daily studies the Bible and really, I mean really tries to understand every word.  And, she lives her life faithfully.  She inspires me, and without even knowing it, she pushes me to be a better Christian.  I love her for that.

    Her attitude towards life is almost always upbeat and forward looking.  Yes, she gets disgusted with her situation, but no, she doesn’t whine and moan about it.  She goes about her daily routine, she interacts with friends, she volunteers for the MS help line, giving advice and answering questions other MS folks need.  She adopts rescued greyhounds - she has three right now.  She is a blessing to everyone whose life she touches, and she is blessed in return.

    We laugh a lot, too.  Sometimes it is at something one of us says, sometimes it is at something we have done or are about to do.  We’ve laughed until tears rolled down our cheeks.  It’s good to have a friend to laugh with you, especially when your life isn’t particularly humorous at the time. 

    If you don’t have a friend like Pansy, I highly recommend that you find one, and nurture that friendship, hold it close.  You will grow, your heart will grow, and your life will be enriched.  Friends like Pansy are special, to be cherished!

    Who Am I Calling Again?

    This morning my phone rang and the caller ID told me it was a good friend that I hadn’t talked with for a long time.  I was so happy to hear from her and asked her what was up.  There was a pause, and a wary voice asked who I was.  It seems she had not put her glasses on before dialing.   Ha!  How many times have I dialed the phone, gotten distracted and then didn’t know who I was calling?  I could relate! 

    After I explained (laughingly) who I was, we settled in to a wonderful, newsy conversation.  It was so nice to catch up on what she had been doing, and how she was doing.  When we finally hung up so she could make the call she originally intended to make, I was still giggling about it all.

    HB (HoneyBunny) has made many cell phone calls from his hip pocket.  Now that we have touch screens, he is even more dangerous with his dialing!  The slightest touch can cause the phone to call whoever happens to be in the line of “fire.”  The last one was a call to a Facebook contact, a Pastor who lives in Phoenix, who was actually on a family vacation in Scotland at the time – on a golf course, to be exact.  Bless him, he chatted with HB awhile and prayed for him (probably asking the Lord to add special controls to HB’s phone).  Believe me, it didn’t take me long to figure out how to get rid of the Facebook contacts that were in our phone’s address books! 

    There have been a few “oops” calls in the middle of the night when HB is attempting to set the alarm on his phone.  (Did I mention that technology is getting more challenging for him as the years go by?)  Fortunately, most of those calls went to a local doctor and the office was, of course, closed.  Whew!   

    What silly or embarrassing experience have you had with your phantom phone calls?
