March 22, 2016 (Sept 8, 2016. I forgot to mail this. I have more to send next week.)
What a beautiful day! It is the first week of spring today. I am sitting at a picnic table outside in the cool (70*) fresh air. The wind is blowing so there is a cool breeze. The lawn is being mowed across the field and it's like a perfume to me! If every day were like today, I'd never go back inside!
Haley turned 20 ten days ago. Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday that she was 13. Maybe it's cuz I haven't physically seen her since she was 13. That could be it... At any rate, I am deeply proud of her, as I am Laura also. Haley lives at Job Corps and is studying phlebotomy and to become a C.M.A. (Laura is currently a C.N.A.). That's both girls in the medical field. I think it's wonderful they are in the same field. I believe she told me she was 70% finished with her studies but is going to sign up for more. That's excellent. I want her to be able to get a good job in her field so she will have a secure future.

Wow. Yesterday was fantastic (for being here of course!). I basically just hung out with my group of friends most of the day. I sleep until 10:00 and then went to lunch. The amount of food served was unbelievable. I'm a fairly large woman but who could have possibly eaten all that in one sitting?

I have come to the shocking conclusion that I may not be the best on keeping caught up on this blog. I've written in it telepathically hundreds of times, but unfortunately that method lacks much to be desired for the reader!
