It's Wednesday and that means the HP with Joyce and her thought provoking questions.
Oh, no, it was definitely not deliberate! Hubby and I headed to The Villages, Florida two years ago this past Feb. We had planned this trip months in advance and thought it would be great to go to sunshine and warmth during our winter. Well, might you know that ice and snow followed us almost the entire way causing us to have to take back roads that we didn't even know existed. Interstate was closed and we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere several times. Thankfully once we arrived at The Villages, the sun was shining and it was warm and we had found our way out of nowhere.
I am in charge of making dessert for my study group that meets tomorrow. There will be just enough present that I will need to have two desserts. So, I made one yesterday and I will be making the other one today. Plus, I am in charge of the program and I'll be putting the finishing touches on that today as well. So, yes, I am in the middle of something today.
For me, I'm pretty sure I'm past middle age at almost 64 years old but I'm not sure when "it" really begins. Does that even make sense? I suppose being somewhere between early adulthood and a more "mature" adult is what middle aged means. I rarely think about age,but more about how I feel and am very fortunate that I'm still pretty energetic and very healthly.
I am not crazy about any on the list but deviled eggs would be my choice. I think a Reese Cup would be a favorite of mine not on the list. There's not much better than chocolate and peanut butter.
Definitely, I can look back at difficulties that gave me opportunities for change in a positive way and also I can see times when I did not take the opportunity that difficulty presented me. I think it's sort of like taking lemons and making lemonade. And, facing difficulties can show us and others what we are really made of, good or bad.
Oh, there were soooo many wonderful songs in my middle school years, but the first one I thought of was Stop! In The Name of Love by the Supremes. I loved it and still love it and know it word for word!
Don't guess I will celebrate as I do not have a relative near enough to go see. But, I did just go to Virginia last month and see lots of relatives on my maternal side of the family. It was a wonderful time and a lot of precious memories were made.
