I ordered this off of Amazon to do floor exercises. It will also be a twin bed cover on our downstairs twin bed. We had to throw away the top mattress because cats peed on it. I was determined to get the smell out but hubby won to throw it away. I give in a lot post stroke time. lol So it is killing two birds with one stone, two functions so it saved us money. 🙂
It’s comfy. It does lay out flat and still comfy.
I want to get my arms and wrists flexible. It’s like being 90 years old when getting up. Really sucks. Nothing like going from 40s to 90s in warp speed.
I want to get into learning yoga. I feel it is a super soft yoga mat too. 🙂
One thing my butt has changed to being boney from being fat and cushy.
It definitely has been big changes in my life, I don’t wish it on anyone. Hopefully people will learn to take care of themselves from my experience. I’m lucky I have a wonderful hubby and great kids helping. My daughter and I have grown closer thru this.
We have been watching the granddaughter since mid-August because mommy is doing the army thing. It’s been fun but also tiring. I’ll miss her but be glad to get back to being grandparents and seeing her on an occasional weekend. I will really like seeing the daughter again and being able to text her. She is my bestest friend as her daughter likes to say. lol
I see why grandparents are not parents, couldn’t keep up with youngsters. I should have taken better care of myself. Listen young people so you will have better older years. 🙂
We made many fort blankets. Loved doing those as a kid.
She doesn’t eat well, so it was a challenge every day. She got fed interesting meals. Can’t wait till she is older. Her mom was a picky eater but a better eater and now she loves vegetables that I don’t. That makes me happy.
She does have quite the imagination and loves to sing her own lyrics.
We did the best we could to teach her to pick up. She has the bad habit of leaving a mess and I will be glad to have the house back to normal. Only picking up after hubby. lol
We didn’t do anything special since hubby works and I’m still recovering from my stroke. Still tired from that. Maybe next summer, I hope, but not four weeks straight. 🙂
I’ve been blogging for over 2 years now and it is no secret that I am addicted to blogging. What started off as a safe space for me to vent during the first lockdown has now become a passion that I can’t imagine ever giving up. I’ve met some wonderful bloggers from around the globe…
Hey, lovelies! I know, I know, it’s such a big list, however, you may know by now, that some of the books on this list, will at some point, have their own article. Historical-fiction, that is based on a true-story, as I typically read based on a true-story, inspired by true events, about 98% of […]
“Brad, since you can’t seem to remember” He growled.
“Nice to have a name with the face. Sorry I don’t remember you. I was a teenager with many dramas going on back then.” pg. 22
‘I wish I had my phone to call my best friend, Dorie, she was there. She is at college now. She was disappointed when I didn’t follow her to college. It was always the plan to go together since we were in Jr. High. I am just so glad we stay in touch. ‘ pg. 22
“It was July 1999. I came to help my father’s longtime friend, Carl Wilson, on his farm. You came out one day with a friend, young blonde, your age, about your height.” pg. 23
“I am the young age of thirty-five. I am not old and I know you are twenty-five.” pg. 23
“I had blonde hair back then from being outdoors all the time. I am now an accountant so no more outdoors more like hello cubicle. And thanks to contacts, I no longer wear glasses.” pg. 23
“OH. Wow. I um…do remember you. I am now genuinely embarrassed.” I turned away from him. Oh crap. He was my rebound from Damian. I began to pace.’ pg. 24
“You don’t have to be embarrassed. Crap happens. It was only two weeks’ time, not a lifetime like your old lover boy.” pg. 24
‘I am pretty sure he was a rebound from Damien and I feel even more ashamed. I should have given myself time to heal. Damien was the love of my life gone sour after two years of dating. It seemed like a lifetime to a teenage girl. We dated from eleventh grade through my graduation, and then caught him with another girl. He broke my heart, and it still hasn’t healed in ten years.’ pg. 24
“The job was done. I had to head back to my hometown to help my dad on his farm. I was going to come back the following summer, but I decided to enroll in college. I picked a career in accounting, worked for a big firm for the last five years. Carl called and mentioned he needed some more help, and I thought why not. I quit my boring job and headed on down here. I have been here about a month. I am going to open my accounting business and then help Carl in the evenings and weekends. He is getting to where he can’t do all the work and has no other family to help.” pg. 25
‘I walked over to one wall and grabbed some blankets. No pillows, but we can use a blanket for a pillow, plenty of those. Brad found a couple kerosene lamps, and thankfully some matches next to them. Everything was on the shelves and there were no batteries or flashlights. The supplies seem to be from decades ago and more the old camping way.’ pg. 26
“I love knowledge. Knowledge is good. Caves happen to be rather interesting to me. I wouldn’t have the courage to explore an unknown cave but one that has already is great. My goal is to explore a cave in each state. Bucket list you know.” I replied irritably crossing my arms over my chest. pg. 16
“I’m not real sure. I only began exploring it recently. I bought the cottage a month ago. I discovered the entrance when I tried to move the box and found it was bolted down. I removed the bolts and was surprised when the box came up without the bottom. I then had to pry the bottom part up, it was stuck by heavier bolts. I was shocked to see the tunnel and the first room. I decided to keep the box there until I could find out information on it. After all, someone went through a lot of trouble to hide that passageway. Who would have thought a box was hiding a secret place?” He chuckled, pg. 17
“My grandpa once said there were tunnels built under part of the town but thought they had been caved in.” “He will be surprised when I tell him they do exist.” I said pg. 18
“I have two older brothers that loved to treat me like one of them. They were always picking on me. I sometimes wondered if they forgot I was a girl. Most of my girlfriends lived out on farms until we were in Jr. High, so I had to play with the boys in the neighborhood. My grandmother was always complaining saying it didn’t look proper for me to hang with the boys, but there wasn’t anyone else. I would even save up my allowance to go buy Hot Wheels cars.” pg. 19
“Oh, my, look at that. I have never seen a more beautiful sight.” Mystery man exclaimed.
I peeked around him to see what he was looking at. Wow just like in the photography books. pg. 20
