Thinking Warmer Thoughts

Mimi and Kristin

"My" beach at Dauphin Island, AL at least makes me think warmer thoughts. I am missing it even though I know full well it is cold there, too right now. The winds off the water make it feel much colder than it really is. But THIS picture was made in May when it was hot, hot, hot. Hope that spreads a little warmth your way, too.
Update on my niece's mother-in-law who had the gastric by-pass surgery and was having serious problems. It appears that she has turned the corner and recovering, thank God and all those who have been praying for her.
Today was a frigid day here with highs in the single digits. I was scheduled to be off but had to work to take care of a family I had met with earlier in the week. Funeral went as well as could be expected with a HUGE family, but we were late arriving at the cemetery and it was just so darn cold there. Fine folks, though, and I truly am sorry for the loss of their Dad and brother.
This was my day off the diet so I, of course, went to El Bracero. I hadn't been in months but am paying for it tonight with frequent trips to the bathroom. Not good! Next week I will do something kinder to myself, lol.
Off again so until tomorrow.......trotting.
