Year Three, Day 46: Nice People!

What a lovely day I am having so far!




I managed to wake up early enough to go next door to the running track. I walked 1.5 laps and ran .5 laps. Then I came home and had a good hoop workout!

I am working on engaging my abs when I hoop. I can really feel a difference.  This is Day 12.  I do so love progress! :)




And to add to  my pleasure, I stepped on the scale and did a happy dance! I am back down to 187.  I have been gaining and losing the same 3 pounds for several weeks now.

Let's just keep going down from here, I say!



I had a lovely bite of a gluten free cobbler my lovely roommate had made and told me I could sample. It was delish!  Then I set out for my 2 minute walk to my church office job. In the parking lot, I ran into one of the older men who heads and AA group at our church. He is very kind and friendly. We chat every week. He likes to sew as stress relief. He has made a purse for me, my mother and a wallet for my father!  This morning, he popped out of his car and handed me rose from his wife's garden.  I put it in a little vase by my Jesus sign in the office. Every time I look at it, I smile.

I sure do like nice people!


Speaking of which, "R" popped in a bit ago. I had not seen him for several weeks. I was missing him!

He had a big smile on his face. We chatted for a bit. He told me I looked very nice and trim! (Blush!)

Then he said, he had been thinking about me. He asked himself why he had not asked Zita out on a date yet. But then, he told himself she would probably say no because of the "age thing".  (He is 43, I am 55). But, he told me that he thinks I look much younger than my age (blush!)

So I told him that I was just going to give him my phone number. No harm in a bit of texting, said I. And I would certainly not say no to coffee!

There! Easy as pie! A nice, friendly, attractive young man.  Asked me in a very sweet way for my number. If only life was always this easy!

After he left, I must confess, I ran to the full length mirror to see if I did indeed look good today!

I think I do! (But it is probably all that blushing and smiling!)




I think I am just going to end right here!  On a happy note!


I wish you a happy Tuesday!  Full of kindness, joy and laughter!

Talk to you tomorrow...

Love,

Zita :)

Year Three, Day 134: The Charmed Life of a Commuting Grandma

I just discovered that the Starbucks at Cascades Station stays open until 10:00 p.m. every night.

Just when I was wanting to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Being a commuting grandma really is not that difficult. Actually, my life pretty much rocks right now!

Today has been a very good day. And I had maybe 3 hours of solid sleep last night. The Burrito has decided she likes to sleep cuddled in the arms of her Great Grandma Blanche or Grandma Zita during the day. Or snuggled safe in her infant seat while her mom, grandma and great grandma go out to lunch, do laundry and go shopping.

I warned my daughter that the
Baby Burrito needed some awake time yesterday. Or else we would pay for it in the evening. But getting so much done with a snoozing baby in tow was so freeing. Especially since Baby Burrito's dad is elk hunting all weekend.

We finally roused her for a bath, diaper change and piano lesson early afternoon.

Baby Burrito had a fantastic first piano lesson. At…

Year Two, Day 288: I Found a Place!

This is truly amazing.

God is so good.

All the time!

I posted on Facebook my housing plight yesterday afternoon. And so many of my wonderful friends had helpful suggestions. Several offers for roommates came in.  But most of them so far from my work.

Then, I was heading home after teaching and just felt the need to sit and think.  Of course sitting and thinking go so much better with a cheeseburger on a rice cake, and what do you know...there I was getting off the bus in from of a McDonald's!

So I ordered a quarter pounder with cheese, ditched the bun and plopped it down between two rice cakes (I always carry emergency rice cakes in my bags these days).

I opened up Facebook and found a message from the pastor at my church job. She and her family have a room in their basement that they have been wanting to rent. But they were hesitant to put up an ad. They preferred knowing the person.

And here I am!  This is a blessing in so many ways! I will help them by paying rent and being a p…

Year Three, Day 156: Thank God for COPD and 120 Days of Daily Hooping

10:00 a.m.

Today has been a very good day so far.

I am here at my daughter and son-in-law's church.


I have Baby Gracie duty. It is a pleasure! I had not seen her in four days. Such a difference those days made! I arrived at their trailer before church. I went straight to her crib and said,"Hi Gracie, your grandma is here!"

I scooped her up and noticed her looking intently up at my face. Like she was studying me. I continued talking to her and her face lit up with recognition!

My heart leapt for joy!

I danced with her around the living room, softly singing our theme song ("The Bunny Hop"). When I got to the "hop, hop, hop" part she would grin.




Earlier, I took the Max to Cascades Station. Had a cup of Earl Grey tea and a gluten free breakfast sandwich at Starbucks. It was such a beautiful morning. Clear, crisp and chilly. Sun shining brightly.

I love this time of year!  I did cough quite a bit last night. The Prednisone has taken the edge off, but does …
