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.

The Cabinet for Embroidery Floss and More
I like to have antiques that I know the history of. Most of the things that I own are just that. So many are things that were from my own family and others from people that I once knew..
Mr. Cardinal is out on the feeder right now. I just filled it with the sunflower seeds that he loves. There's a suet block in the corner. No one has touched it yet. It'll not be long before many birds are here.I hope to see the squirrel too. After seeing what we thought was a hawk, up in the squirrel nest, we are looking for him.
No plans for today...we have no therapy appt. I guess I'll have to entertain myself here today. The house could use a good cleaning, but my shoulder is giving me fits this morning. I did a lot of chores yesterday that involved my right arm...and now I'm paying for it. Early this morning, I remembered a gift from my daughter-in-law...a wrap that holds three bags of rice. Once the bags are warmed in the microwave....I put them in the little pockets of the fleece holder...and lay this across my shoulders. It has a fragrance of lavender. As I did this today...I closed my eyes and I could imagine myself at a spa.I know that by working it out today, my shoulder will come around, but a little TLC is called for first.
I have to get used to something as simple as household chores playing havoc with my joints and muscles.This arthritis is a tough thing to deal with sometimes. No one knows, unless she is experiencing the same things...how very painful it can be. We just need to keep on moving. I'm finding it true that "Old Age Ain't For Sissies."
