One Day at a Time, Sweet Jesus

Hey, Y'all,
Last evening I was not sleepy at midnight, so I stayed up a while longer, into today. I decided to do some filing of papers that had been occupying my worktable in my "daily room". My daily room is where I am sitting right now, and where I spend a great deal of my time. When I open mail, it either goes on my kitchen table where I pay the bills, and then the part to be filed goes in here on my computer desk or my worktable, and waits to be filed away, or it comes directly in here to be opened and either filed away or tossed into file 13. I had at least two months worth of papers that needed a decision made as to where to put them, and then to put them there. That took about 45 minutes or so, and then I was ready to go to bed.

Then on to bed, and watch a little more tevee from my bed till I was sleepy. Up then at around 7 a.m. and figuring out what to do with this day that has been given to me to use however is best.

I still haven't removed the Christmas decorations (that should take about 20 minutes at most, ha), and I have been working on a project concerning my fireplace, which I will describe later (with pictures). I need to go to Hobby Lobby to get materials to be used for that project and hopefully today will be a good day for it. No rain today, and cloudy but with high temperature of 75 degrees. I am hoping to go to Carol and Daryl's home to day to watch a bowl game with University of Tennessee playing. Daryl and I are both graduates of University of TN and are definite supporters of the team.

I also need to visit the grocery store some time soon, since I am out of a few staples, and (no not metal, just food staples. ha ha). No, I am not starving,, which you can see from looking at my pictures. I still have eggs and bread and butter and cheese, and all of that kind of thing.

That is how I am taking my days, and learning to live alone again. It is not so bad, because I have almost always been happy being me, and enjoying just living and taking life one day at a time. I thank the Lord that He is so good to me, even though I don't deserve it.

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today, and waiting to see what the day has in store for me. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now. More later.

You are so wise, Ruby. All of your blog posts makes me think. Treasuring each day and making the most of the gift is a wonderful way to live our lives.

I wish you and your family a happy and healthy new year.

I just feel like hugging you my friend.
There is a peace that's found when you know your days are ordained by the Lord. Maybe not always a happiness, but a peace.

Glad you have family nearby. And hit the grocery store soon before the New Year's Eve party planners attack and clears out all of the munchie items.

All we have been promised is today. No one has tomorrow promised so you are wise to take just one day at a time.

Happy New Year Grammy. I am so sorry to hear the passing of Gramps. It must have happened right after I took the blogging break because I was here reading about your experiences at the hospital. Thank you for visiting me, I was heading to you but you beat me and I was so glad and happy to see you.

From God we all come, and to Him we shall all return. Time heals, no question about that, so taking one day at a time is the way to go. Happy New Year again Grammy, God-willing I shall return regularly for a visit :)
