Fun Day With Some Friends
When I've been walking Hiker, I've noticed all of the Christmas lights people have put up. Of course we are walking in the day time so they are not lit. I used to love to go out walking around the neighborhood in the dark close to Christmas so I could see all of the decorations, but this year, I do not feel like doing that. I hate hearing Christmas music at the stores. I remember Ben would sit in his chair at night and sing Christmas carols. He'd start out singing one carol and by the time he finished he was singing a totally different one. He'd also make up different words for the carols. He was always so much fun. He could tell a story and make it up as he told it. He never hesitated while telling it. He just rambled on and on and I'd sit and laugh until I'd be in tears. I miss his sense of humor. I had to go grocery shopping this morning so left early to head over to Wal-Mart before the Christmas shoppers get there. Seems like every time I go to my Wal-Mart, they are filming Wal-Mart commercials there. Makes it hard to get into certain isles. Came home and took Hiker for her walk. She was raring to go since I had not taken her earlier. While out walking I realized that I had forgotten to take my blood pressure pills this morning. I was in such a hurry to get my groceries, I just plain forgot. I took them when I got back from my walk. I met with several of my retired girlfriends today for lunch. We always have so much fun when we get together. Most of us have known each other for over 35 years. Hiker was excited again when I got home. My friend Judy had given me two toys for Hiker that her sister Ginny had made. One is a rope toy and the other is cloth, so she can play with them in the house. I gave them to her when I got home and she immediately started playing with both of them. Got up to 72° here today. Funny, we are so cold in the morning.
