Fun, Family, Food and Football!

This last weekend was exactly that. Fun, family, food and football. Very busy but fullfilling. Thought I might just share with you all.

Late Friday our daughter Mary came from the South Bend area to spend the weekend with us. She went shopping and came back with all kinds of snacks for the football game and spent the rest of the time before the game fixing appetizers. They were delicious:

  • Sausages and Meatballs
  • Veggies – peppers of all colors
  • Celery, carrots and radishes
  • Dips and potato chips, tortilla chips and pretzels.

Daughter Kathy came to watch the game with her Dad. Oh I forgot to mention what game they were going to watch NOTRE DAME versus PURDUE. Husband graduated from Purdue but is a big big Notre Dame fan.

Son, Bill came over to see his sisters and visit for a while. Lots of talking , laughing among the siblings. He had to leave as they were going to have a September birthday celebration at his home. Makes good sense to celebrate September (any month’s birthday) as the families get older and everyone is so busy.

  • Monthly birthday parties, good idea.
  • Plan dates ahead
  • Family with the most birthdays in that month -host

Daughter Cindy and husband Dave stopped by so Cindy could help her father with a computer issue. We offered them food, but they were going on a date. A good idea after a hectic week.

  • Plan a date night with your spouse or significant other
  • Don’t just sit there if you go out to dinner. Take time to talk to each other and enjoy the company.

Sunday morning, grandaughter Josie and boyfriend Colin came for a late breakfast. Menu was scrambled eggs with cheese, fruit and coffee cake. They are trying to eat more healthy. Again we had a nice time and a good visit.

Granddaughter Mia and friend came to visit before heading back to college. Mia shaved her grandfather and that was fun to watch.

After all our visitor’s left you can be sure that we took a little snooze, watching football. Hope you all had a chance to relax and enjoy also.

Life in your home!

Written January 2020 Updated 9/14/21

   Sometimes poor is a state of mind and other times we just don’t know how to manage our money and lives. How to say no!  We slide from one mess to another instead of taking time to focus on cleaning up one mess, before getting into another one.  Some families give the appearance, as do their children of being very wealthy, when they are living off credit cards, owe everyone, are scared to death of what the next day is going to bring.

Remind your children, grandchildren, stepchildren,  what they have to be grateful about such as:

A family that stays together, even when the going gets so tough.

A chance to pray! Reflect! Meditate.

A roof over their heads.  Utilities that are paid so you have heat in the winter, and are able to be cool in the summer.

A chance to save if you have a job.  Get a savings plan started so you will feel rich when you see how it has grown. It is called savings, savings, and savings.

Food on the table.

Pets and more pets and then more pets.

Clothing, maybe not the most expensive, but why would you want expensive anyway, in a couple of months you will have grown and need new outfits.

Friends who are allowed to come to your house.

Love from parents and grandparents .Love can be defined in many ways. Love may not be visable at all times but it is there.

Exercise, ride bicycles, help with laundry, keep the house clean  or work in the yard. Don’t forget to shovel the snow when it arrives. Don’t wait to be asked.

Journal about the above, what works and why it worked.

One day at a time!
