A look back . . .

. . . at a great week.  Linking up with Susanne this Friday for a little gratitude check.

1.  Our water aerobics class has moved outside for the summer. It's a wonderful way to start the day. Even better, the water was warmer than any of us expected, so we were like kids wanting to play.  I love this group of ladies, and the few guys, that I meet up with three mornings a week.  We work out to music from 'our time' -- 70s and 80s -- and have a ball.

2.  I'm so grateful for my amazing podiatrist.  He's been working with me for the past three months to heal an annoying case of plantar fasciitis.  He's a real miracle worker.

3.  Tomorrow morning I'm going to a baby shower.  The dad-to-be is a young man I've known most of his life -- his mom and I are good friends.  Such a happy occasion.

4. Have I mentioned what great neighbors we have?  They are just the kindest, friendliest people. We are loving our new home.

5.  It's the season for thunderstorms.  Thankfully (fingers crossed), we've been spared the hailstorms that have done some pretty heavy damage in our area.  The clouds that build are magnificent.  I'll leave you with this photo, taken in our backyard
.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful picture of the clouds! It is a time to rejoice when we see the our children and their generation moving on to be moms and dads! :) (I can't wait to be grandma myself).
Water aerobics sounds like great fun. I wish I had some place near to participate! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Gorgeous cloud pic! We've had predictions of thunderstorms but thankfully only had one that wasn't too bad.

Good neighbors are a great blessing.

Glad you've got a good podiatrist and your foot is feeling better.

What a great picture of the clouds! Perfect timing on that picture. Your water aerobics class sounds like so much fun and I'm so glad you are enjoying your new home as I know moving can be stressful. :) Hope you have a great weekend.

That cloud is totally scary beautiful. And I can see a definite face in it. :) Outside in a pool already? Wow, it's still too chilly here. Our one outdoor pool is closed this summer for a complete overhaul. It's going to be missed that's for sure. Good neighbors are definitely a blessing.

Sounds like a good week.

Enjoy the shower. Congrats the the
new parents to be.

I think the storms from your part of the world head to my part of the world. We have had some interesting clouds too.

Are those angels in the clouds??

Water aerobics sounds like a fun activity--wish there was a class around here.

I've always wanted to do water aerobics but there is no place close enough that I could work it in my schedule.

I love that cloud photo!
