The Birthday Celebrations continued, with the most delightful evening out, a yummy meal, at Bulls, and here we are. Thank you so much Jeanette, this was Hugh’s birthday present , but we all enjoyed it so very much.
Jeanette, Kaz, Ralph, Hugh , then I am on the very right. All prettied up!!! Look carefully, as you might not recognise me further down the page!!!
Jeanette left for home the next morning, a long 6 hour drive with extra time for stops along the way. It was so good to talk to her after she arrived safely back in Auckland. I am hoping she will have a short flight for her next visit and a longer stay down here.
Property maintenance was on the list, so out came the weed-eater, or weed-whacker, or whipper-snipper, depending where you live. Long grass in difficult places was quickly down to ground level, and all is looking great.Then the fence railings, a bit grimy, so out came the water-blaster. Hugh cannot manage to stand for very long, so I donned gloves and a hat, and started. I didn’t know he had the camera ready!!!
Next time, I will NEVER turn my back!!!
It looks so shiny and clean.
One of my blog friends, Joanne, has very interesting words today.
She found a blog a while ago called “ word365” when you choose a word to use through the year, to turn to, to use and to be guided by.
I gave my own choices much serious consideration, and after weighing up so many possibilities, decided on “ Keep”.
I will keep hope in my heart, keep family and friends close in my thoughts, and try so hard to keep only what I need, I will only keep positive thoughts, and keep on giving thanks for so much goodness and happiness in my life every day.
Finally, I thank each one of you who sent Hugh a birthday greeting . He was so thrilled and really appreciated and enjoyed every one. 80, there are so many good reasons to celebrate, to be thankful, and to keep on living each day as a bonus, never to be taken for granted.
And , finally, again, thank you all for loving and caring messages and words for me, I am keeping well, new tablets are working so far, and I am so happy to have my feet on the floor at home every morning.
Quotation of the day , from Omar Khayyam
“ Be happy for this moment .
This moment is your life”
Greetings from Jean.
