|Warm Pumpkin muffins for breakfast - I do enjoy Fall!|
Hubby and I are in our late 50's. That puts all of our closest friends in their 50's as well. Some are younger and others are not. This weekend another friend joined the ranks of "50!"so his loving wife put on a great BBQ/party for him. The sun came out, the temps went up and we partied welcoming him into the unique club of 50 year olds.
Now that I am in this club it's funny to me that 50 does not feel so old. Oh, there are days when my hands hurt and my back is sore and some parts of me creak every once in a while, but for the most part, I don't think about my age until I see it on something like a doctor's report. How about it out there - do you feel your age?
I remember thinking that my grandmothers were old, looked old, dressed old, walked old, talked old - but I don't think that at all about me. Hmmmm! Maybe it's just that I hang around with old folks and we are all doing the same thing. Must be the company I keep.
Sunday, after a really good worship service, we got to play with our beautiful and smart grand- daughters who keep us moving, keep us on our toes and keep us young. I love our time with them and I am always impressed by the wonderful job our daughter and son-in-law are doing raising such great girls.
As for my personal challenge, I was able to get in 53 miles this week, which I was very happy about since I had an asthma attack that put me down for a bit. I did go to work but I was very tired and had to take my time getting anything done. So I'm up to a total of 2360, that leaves just 40 miles. If my lungs hold out and the weather stays cool, I'm hoping this is the week I reach my goal!
I hope that you all had a great weekend as well and are ready to be your best this week.
