God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Drinking Water and New Clothes
Well, enough of this problem talking....on to today. We had snow last night. It was in the 40's yesterday and today it is 10 degrees. That up and down roller coaster is the weather this winter. The sun is just coming out and the wind is blowing. Several closings near the Galena area, because of drifting.
Yesterday I got a box from UPS with new clothes that I ordered online. I took a look at the clothes I wear each day and thought to myself...why do I always wear the same clothes? Week after week...things that are a little worn and faded.I was starting to feel rather frumpy. I have a class reunion-75th birthday party for our class coming up in June. I had been looking for a outfit to buy. It is going to be very casual...not dressy at all.I went to a favorite website and I found exactly what I wanted and then started checking out other clothes. I found some things that I wanted and clicked that button....and in no time at all...the box was here on the porch. Today, I am going to get in my closet and dresser and weed out the things that are old. Maybe I'll regret this, but I really want to look nicer when I'm at home.I think that sometimes older people loose their interest in fashion. The old clothes are broken in and comfy...we don't have to spend time wondering what we are going to wear. We may have nice clothes for social events and Church, but we come home and take them off and put them away and then back to the old clothes. Well, at 75, I'm still interested in fashion. I receive lots of catalogs, but seldom order from them. I like to browse through and see what new things are available...what accessories they put with things. I'm interested in seeing what they wear on TV and the movies, So, yesterday when I opened the box....yes it only contained new sweats, a couple of pairs of pants for Church etc, and some cropped pants for summer, and a navy and white striped shirt....nothing very exciting, but new looking. Now all I need is a new straw summer purse. So, this morning I'll be drinking water and finding room for my new clothes. What fun on a cold and snowy day.
