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

Thank you!

Bless you all for the kind thoughts, prayers, well wishes and emails, the telephone calls and the snail mail.  I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful group of blogging friends.

I am feeling better.  I have lab tomorrow morning and on Wednesday an appointment with my Kidney/BP specialist.  I am finally getting used to the BP meds so my blood pressure has evened out somewhat.

In between all of this I have to face the fact that my birthday is right around the corner on Tuesday.  Twin (Carole) and I share the same birthday.  The older I get the more surprised I am to see that I am making it to another birthday.  lol

It was in the 30s here this morning and I turned the furnace on.  I can’t believe how quickly September has passed.  Soon it will be Halloween and then Thanksgiving  and Christmas just fly by.

My computer crashed last weekend and I ended up having to buy a new computer.  I finally got it yesterday.  Because of this I had plenty of time to rest and do nothing.

I hope you all are having a peaceful day.  Me, I am thanking God for just being here.

I will be around to visit as many of you as I can.  If I don’t catch you today I will do some more tomorrow.

Stay safe and be happy!!



  1. I am so happy Sis that you are doing better, sorry about the computer though. Hope the new one works well for you. Hope you have something wonderful planned for your special birthday. XXOO always..

  2. Wow, love that red tree at the top of the page! FALL is finally here! So glad you are feeling better and getting those meds under control. Time really does seem to fly by these days. My son, Max, is already a Junior and it's still hard to believe that he's THAT old. One more year and he'll be off to college. But when I dream about him, he's almost always still a little boy (8 or 9 years old!). Enjoy this "cool" season and get ready for the snows! Oh, and do something really special for your upcoming birthday---mine isn't far off either!

  3. congrats on the new computer! and even better, that you are feeling better again. :)

  4. Glad you are beginning to feel better, have fun with the new computer.

  5. Hi Beth,

    Good to see you on here and feeling better and rested.

    Hope you have a fantastic birthday, however I know what you mean about birthdays. I have what they call a significant birthday next month and I am finding it somewhat difficult to face up to that.

    Take Care, Hugs - Nita

    I hope you like the new computer!

  12. I am so glad you are feeling better. How terrible though for your computer to die.
    At least a new one is much better and faster. I hope that your doctors appointment is okay and they get every thing fixed. I hope you have a really nice birthday too.

  13. I am glad you are feeling better and getting things under control where your health is concerned.

  14. How exciting to read your post today, Beth! You have certainly been in my thoughts and prayers this week! Too bad about the computer issues. I would lose all my blogging info if this one crashed.:( That would not be good.:(

    Enjoy this wonderful Fall Sunday!

  15. Wow, another year older. My birthday was a week ago last Saturday. It's another year older for me as well.

  16. Glad you're feeling better. If you could send some of that 30 degree weather our way, I'd appreciate it:) Happy Birthday. Enjoy the beginning of fall:)

  17. I am very happy to read your post AND Carole's with my sis!
    A very happy birthday with Tuesday I hope you like the new computer.

  18. So thankful you are feeling some better. I pray your appointments go well and I especially wish you a blessed birthday on Tuesday. We recently had to get a new computer, too. It is always so stressful learning a new one! Sending you my love and keeping you in my prayers. Mildred

  19. It sure is good to see you here. And it sounds like you're getting better, so glad. It's nice to have a new computer, especially after you learn it. We're supposed to have 39F here tonight unless it's been changed since this morning.
    I'm curious about your tree as I wait for sun in Kassey's room.

  20. Hi Beth,I am happy for you that you feeling better! One day at a time is what I say. I hope you are liking the new computer. Blessings, Anna

  24. So happy to hear that you are feeling a bit better and hope things continue to improve for you. Nice to see you posting again. : )
    It was in the 40's again here and just perfect for my morning walks.
    Happy Birthday!!

  25. I guess I echo all the other comments made here. I'm very happy you're feeling better and I'm happy you're back here. Funny you should mention a new computer. I have been having some problems with my computer and the thought has crossed my mind.
    Oh and Happy Birthday!
    Missed you Beth!

  26. Glad to hear you're doing better! Hoping and praying things continue to go better and you adjust to the new medication. And Happy "almost" birthday!

  28. Happy Birthday dear dear Twin. Many more and we both will have a wonderful day I know. xoxoxoxox

  29. Happy Birthday Beth hope you have a Lovely Day
    Hugs Sheila xx ENJOY

  30. Have a wonderful birthday Beth, it's nice to see you back here blogging again, look after yourself, and keep the furnace going. Hugs {{{0}}}

  31. Very happy to find you posting again on a new computer no less. They do select the worst times to give up. Will your twin sister and you get together on your birthdays? That sounds odd...wonder if it is the correct way to say it. "Your shared birthday" perhaps. Goodness it is cold in your corner. Stay warm and well.

  32. oooohhhhh what happy news, i am so glad you are feeling better.

    i recently celebrated my 54th birthday and the hubs bought me an ipad. i can't tell you how much i love it. but seriously, how many devices do i really need. i have a notebook (pc), an iphone, an ipod and now an ipad. it's a little bit much, don't you think??

  33. Praying for you to feel better soon. Hope the doctors appointments go well. Not sure if you meant this Tuesday is your birthday or next Tuesday, but either way. Have a happy birthday when it rolls around. Will keep praying for you.

  34. That means that today is your birthday! Happy, happy birthday!

    Glad you are doing better ... hope you continue to do better each and every day!

    You really didn't think we'd forget you, did you? ;-)

  35. Glad to see you back Beth and most importantly I am glad you are feeling better. B

  36. Happy Birthday in advance if my computer crashes or some other unexpected things happen. B

  37. Happy Birthday! so glad you are feeling better. My Computer is again acting up and if it weren't for my blog I think I may have thrown it out the window by now! Have fun with the new computer!
    Blessings, Joanne

  38. I have slowed down some on my blog reading and commenting due to a very busy schedule, but I was sure glad to see you back and posting again! You have been in my thoughts, so I am very glad that you are feeling better. Have a wonderful birthday!

  39. How do you expect me to remember your birthday, when you never look any older?

    1. You know something Beth, I recall a good poem that was once sent to me and I would like to share it with you:
      Never Blame A Day In Your Life.
      Good Days Give You Happiness.
      Bad Days Give You Experience.
      Both Are Essential In Life...All Are Gods Blesses!
      Start each say with a smile Beth, it looks good on you!

  40. Terry and I were just talking about you the other day and was wondering how you were and hoping that you were ok. Glad to hear your feeling better and I hope you stay that way for a long long time. I'm worried that my laptop is going to crap out on me, it's been acting strange lately. I sure hope not.
    Well you take good care and don't over do it.
    Hugs xoxox

  41. BLESSINGS....
    glad you are feeling better, missed your dailies......
