Positive Thoughts

It's been a wonderful Friday evening and Saturday so far. Hubby and I joined some very old (literally and figuratively) friends from the late 80's and most of the 90's at the Legion last night. Now just going into the Legion makes us old....especially because everyone in there is at least 60+.  I am quite sure that I was the youngest person in the room and probably one of about five of us who were not retired. We met my old Cub and Scout leaders there which we have been doing for the past fifteen or more years. We haven't always met at the Legion, but the last three or four years have been there. I'm sure it's because someone has a membership now that we/they are all old enough. But it was the third Friday in February which is officially Thinking Day in Scouting.....which is our annual Friday evening that we come together and share memories......but mostly we eat, drink and be merry. Hubby used to stay home, but it's been a couples night for awhile now and he always enjoys seeing all the friends as much as I do. We all spent an incredible lot of time together when our boys were Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and we all hold special places in our hearts for each other. The group is getting smaller and smaller.....which is really sad because most of the friends have passed away.....a few have moved away, but the majority have died. And our memories are just nearer and dearer. Yes, they really were "the good old days."  

I was up early this morning and managed to pick up all the toys and get a bit of paperwork done before Hubby arose around 8:30. It snowed/slushed during the night and it was dark and dismal for most of the morning.....but we managed to get some laundry done and some household chores complete before heading out to the bank and Costco. I feel bad for Grandson who had a lacrosse practice from 10 to 11 because it was so cold and wet, but then the sun has arrived and stuck around for most of the day. Hubby and I picked up Tim Hortons new turkey clubs for lunch (he had heard from his work friends that they are real turkey breast and they were right) and then we came home and watched a PVR'd TV movie from last week. We have caught up on all of our Valentine's Day movies but we still have 6 Christmas movies that I refuse to delete.  We both really like romantic comedies....they entertain us. And one day there will be nothing on, (which is pretty much every weekend) and we will have something on reserve. 

It's almost time for me to put the stuffed peppers into the oven that we picked up at Costco and go to Grandson's hockey game, so I will leave everyone with all this positivity on this sunny cold Saturday afternoon.
