I Remember This Day In 1973

32° when Hiker and I got up this morning. I slept in a little because I was fasting to go do my blood work and didn't have to make breakfast. The Kaiser doctors offices open at 8:30 am but the lab does not open until 9:00, then the tech doesn't get there to set up until right at 9:00 and she didn't start drawing blood until almost 9:15. There were 3 people ahead of me. I left Hiker in the house alone for a little over an hour. She is getting good at staying in the house and behaving herself. After I got home, I took Hiker out for a 1.5 mile walk. Cold and breezy out there. On this day in 1973, I met Ben for the first time at the home of some mutual friends. I was there to go to dinner with our friends and Ben just happened to stop by to show them the new car he had just bought that day. We did not have our first date until May 11, 1974. Little did I know on that December day 38 years ago that I had just met my soul mate.

After being so cold this morning, it actually got up into the low 70's this afternoon. Took Hiker out for a second walk (1 mile), so I'm getting some of my strength back from when I was sick. Started getting my blood work results back from Kaiser in my email. My blood sugar was lower than I thought it would be since I've been eating so much pasta. I love pastas and they are such a comfort food.


  1. Memories are precious,yet painful at times.

  2. I hope you and Hiker have a Great Christmas. Helen
