Joy in the Morning

I have been so excited to get up in the morning to get my day started!  I have fun projects to work on and I feel better too. I am finishing a quilt sometime next week and it has taken 1 1/2 years, About time!  I am also doing family history.  Its a little slow, but very exciting. In the afternoon I rest by watching Hallmark movies. I m enjoying my retirement!  I appreciate all of my blessings that make each day better than ever!  We completed our income taxes, so we celebrated by having steaks for dinner. We watched some old movies and then they delivered the Girl Scout cookies that Frank sold.  He sold 372 boxes this year. Fun evening!

I am so lucky to have a new laptop to work with.  It's going to take time to get use to this keyboard, but I'm eager to progress.  I have been quilting, cleaning, and spending time with my sweetheart.  That is happiness!  I am trying to keep up with my New Year's resolution to improve each day.  I gained some inspiration to read scriptures in a different way and I'm so excited to do it.  I also have been excited because I have redone my closet and I love it. I hope to finish a quilt next week and that will be a big accomplishment for me. Day by day I gain happiness!

I was able to spend the morning with Frank.  He went on his work calls and then we went to a viewing for Norma Stuehser.  She and her husband Al were camp hosts at the Spruces for many years.  We also saw many of the other Hosts that we have made friends with in the past few years.  When we got home I went to the  store for medications and other necessities.  We had Hawaiian Haystacks for lunch and then I watched a Hallmark movie.  I rested.  Frank was at the Church in the evening, so I watched another Hallmark movie.
I am so blessed and full of gratitude.  Monday was busy and successful.  We had our Family Home Evening for the Single Seniors.  We had 29 in attendance and enjoyed Hawaiian Haystacks for lunch.  Patriarch Bawden gave a lovely lesson.  I was able to rest a little in the afternoon, and then prepared for the Mills brothers for a family dinner.  It was a lovely evening.  These in-laws of mine are fabulous!
