Family Visit

It is a beautiful sunny day today.  It is 55 degrees already and that is really something compared to the weather we have been having so far this year.  We have been running way below normal and began to wonder if Spring is going to skip us this year.  I am going to go visit some classmates today.  Then, I will go visit my sister and her dog, Daisy.  Daisy always gets so excited to see me.  She's a neat dog.  If I have enough time on my way home I would like to stop and see a sister-in-law in a nursing home who is 92.  Her 89 year old sister just died about a month ago.  She also has another sister who is 94 in Dallas.  Lots of longevity in their family.

Wall Street

Have you been watching the news?  I do not remember the stock market being so high.  They say it has been, but I do not remember it.  Anyway, being over 14,000 is really something to me.  I am sure a great many retirement plans have really recovered from the big losses they had.  I was just listening to the news last night and they said it was the way to go and not buy gold.  Gold has been losing value and people have lost a great deal of money investing in gold and silver.  I thought I heard him say one billionaire wasn't a billionaire anymore due to all his purchases of silver.  Something to think about.

Windy and Wet

April has turned out to be a rough month weatherwise.  We have had all kinds of snow.  Now we are getting lots of rain.  The wind will blow you away.  Had to wear raincoat this morning with hood and boots to go out to get the paper.  Still got wet.  My gloves were soaked.  Good day to stay in and look out the window.

Bus Trip

We are to go on a one day bus trip this week.  It sounds like the place where we are going is going to have 6 inches of snow.  They also said that driving was not advised and would be almost impossible.  I am wondering if they will cancel the trip.  I think they should if this materializes.  Seems there have been many bus accidents already this year with a great many injuries.  Guess we will see in a few days what the weather brings.

Children and Easter

We all know we celebrate Easter because Jesus died for us, rose again and is in Heaven interceding for us.  However, we also combine hunting for Easter eggs for the great grandchildren.  They get very excited.  We had a wonderful service at church and then a great dinner after.  Then the kids looked for the eggs.  Hid them in plain sight in the house.  It was a sunny day but too wet and cold outside to hide them outside.  The kids had a great time, as did we all.
