I love playing games, especially word games. I usually get beat but what the heck. Anyway on FaceBook there are several word games that I like to play with some of my friends. A couple of my favorites are Word Twist and Scramble. But my favorite now is Scrabble. I played four times over the last week. First time was really good. The other times were fun. One of the things I really like about the Scrabble game is that it is real-time. Now if they can just get Upwords as an online real-time game.

It's the first time my two cousins and I had ever sat down and spent an afternoon just talking and reminising. We should do it more often. Their other brother and sister and my two brothers really missed out on a fun afternoon. A memory was made today.

Today is the day. It is really warm out there. It's 48 degrees. That is warm compared to the temps of under 30 for highs and lows of single digits or teens for more than a month. The snow is really melting today. Probably be some flooding. The sun is shining so pretty. I think I should get out there and enjoy this beautiful day.
It's also good that we are having a nice day today because it is Christmas for our family. We are finally getting around to celebrating it. We've tried a couple other times but because of sickness and scheduling conflicts, we've had to postpone. The weather is much nicer today for it.
We are also celebrating February birthdays today. We have 3 in our family. I led off, Monday is Dad's, and the 17th is my niece's. How did any of us get to be as old as we are already. Time sure flies.
Most of my morning was spent down in my craft room making birthday cards. If my time was worth anything, those sure are expensive cards. LOL I had a great time doing them and that is what counts. I'm not 100% satisfied with them but I'm still a beginner at paper crafting. I'll get it one of these days. I think the key word is PRACTICE!
The morning is gone and I have not had breakfast. I got a little sidetracked. My tummy is letting me know.

What would I do without them? I don't even want to think about it. They make life so worthwhile.
For the last 2 weeks plus I have had a very good friend from NJ staying with me. What a great time we had -- movies, games, eating good food, shopping, talking and celebrating. She absolutely spoiled me on my birthday. It was one of my 4 best birthdays in my memory.
Birthdays are made special by friends and/or families. This year, friends are the ones who made it special. They remembered me with cards, emails, online messages, a special cake, lunches, a special home cooked dinner and gifts too! Being remembered is such a special treat.
I would like to thank my friends for making me feel so special, not only on my birthday but all year long. God has truly blessed me with several really good ones. You are all very special to me.
