Friday Chuckle

I thought I would share a Friday chuckle with you.  My daughter and son-in-law are going to Mexico for a week and my hubby and I will be living in their home while they are away.  Busy and fun times ahead with a 10 and 13 year old.  I will try to get to my blog throughout the week.

Have a fabulous weekend.

I thought of myself when I read this joke, not because of the false teeth. I am blessed to still have my own teeth, although my hubby tells me I can be a chatter box.  ha ha   ;)


A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes.

The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes.

The following Sunday, he talks for 2 hours and 48 minutes.
The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they asked him what happened.

The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn’t talk for more than 8 minutes.

The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes.

But, the third Sunday, he put his Wife’s’ teeth in by mistake and he couldn’t shut up..

I KNOW you are smiling.




A Beautiful Thing

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~Mother Teresa

Smiling requires 17 muscles.

Smiles are the language of love.

Laughter is healthful.

Smile more.

Share some laughter throughout your day.

Laughter releases stress.

Remember to laugh at yourself from time to time.

An Act of Kindness

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”  ~Princess Diana 


Happy World Kindness Day.

I took this photo while on my run early this morning. It was cold and sunny here in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada.

Snow is slowly starting to appear on the peaks of the beautiful mountains.

While on my run I thought about today being, “Kindness Day.”

I believe in being kind every single day, as kindness is appreciated universally.

Practice kindness and pass it on.

Give someone a smile.

A hug.

Open the door for someone.

Buy a coffee for a stranger.

Just be kind and it will come back to you.

“When it comes to KINDNESS,  nothing is ever SMALL.” ~Dodinsky


The determination that takes you up a mountain will take you through life.

My hubby  tells me he admires my determination to get to the gym as often as I do.

I am there at 6 in the morning three times a week.

The endorphin rush I get when I am done take me through the rest of my day.

As a baby boomer it is important for me to stay as active as I am able.

It helps to keep the squeaks and creaks out of my bones.    :)

Twice a week I like to go for a run, and if the weather is too miserable there are always home workouts to do.

Take good care of yourself.

Be determined~

Tell yourself

You are strong

You can do this.

I got this~

My hubby is amazed with my consistency at the gym at such an early hour.

It is one of my passions.

The clock is ticking and ready to spring me out of bed with its loud ringing.

Not this girl!  I am awake before the alarm and at the gym door by 6.

Mornings are my best time.

Being an active baby boomer I only hope to inspire others to take care of their body.

Believe in yourself!
