Yesterday ...

Yesterday was a lovely day here in Long Island, NY. We woke up around 10am and leisurely got ready for an outing together. We planned to dine out around 2 pm down the street at our neighborhood pizza place. Ours is called Franks and this gentleman makes the best New York style pizza in the state. The pastas and salads are equally awesome. (yay Frank!) My gentleman friend and I enjoyed a slow and enjoyable dinner then strolled home. Later that day after working on our respective computers we watched the last Big Brother of the season. He calls it one of our ''guilty pleasures"; although strangely enough I don't feel the first part of the phrase at all.

All of this brings me to the point of my post...that each day brings such a variety of events that I have begun to wonder how people can possibly be bored with life no matter what their age. I mean if someone like me with limited physical ability can find things to enjoy how on earth can people with all their abilities at hand be bored. Despite all the things the media can find "wrong" with the world, there are a bounty of wonderful things that are right, good and amazing with our world and in our lives!

I honestly feel grateful for my two wonderful daughters, my son, three lovely granddaughters, my nieces and nephews, my sisters, and all their respective spouses. The only regret I have is that I am not as emotionally close to some of them as I wish. I love, enjoy, and am blessed with an abundance of friends online and in person. On another level I am also very grateful for my 2 lovely cats, and my dog. Their day to day follies are a constant delight to both of us. I
enjoy my music, reading, writing, walking, crafts, cooking, and collecting as well.

My greatest wish is that everyone that I know and love are happy and have as few moments of boredom as possible!
