It's that time of the year....

Use it or lose it theory…
Remember yesterday when I spoke about the advice my sister’s doctor gave to her. I have heard that statement many times through the years. I thought it would be fun to Google ‘use it or lose it’, so I did. Try it, you will be amazed at what you see. That is the theory that I try to apply to my life. I am not a spring chicken but I refuse to believe that I am an old hen. When you start thinking old you begin to feel old and that is the beginning of the end.
We can either sit on our bottom ends 24/7 or we can get up and move around and keep going. That is what I choose to do. Listen to the song I have playing, it is a song from the 70s sung by Charlie Rich. Never heard of him you say, well that is OK, just turn on your speakers and take minute to listen to the song. “I ain’t never growing old, I’ll keep on rollin’ with the flow.” If we keep this thought fixed firmly in our minds we can keep on going, even when the going gets very tough. I have faced tough challenges many times in my life, never more so than I have in the last years.
I picked myself up and kept moving forward and you all can do that too.
Now, to get back to mundane things, which one reader told me once that no one was interested in, the weather. The weather interests me very much as does your weather. Now for my weather, for the second day in a row the sun is shining brightly and it is not as cold as yesterday, checking in at 12 degrees so the wind chill is not bad.
Our Sears store here is closing in March and today is the first day of the clearance sales. I am going there with my daughter this morning. I have in mind to buy a sewing machine. I have been thinking about this since I moved here. I have hemmed two sets of curtains by hand and that is getting old. Even if I use it only for that type of thing I think it would come in handy. I used to sew a lot when the children were small.
Gotta run now. I hope today is one of the best days in your life. For my friends in Australia, you remain always in my thoughts and prayers.
