making a difference today

hello friends

I love it when there is an occasion that I can make a difference!!!!!
today I am doing something very nice for somebody I care about !!!!!!!!!

my sis in law , had to have foot surgery today . not a big surgery but she wont be able to stand or walk for 1 week....

so I decided to cook for her and family today . it's going to be a surprise cause if I told her , I know she would tell no , don't do it!!!!

I wish I could see her face but I cant go over to bring it , cause I have to work tonight .. so I am sending the food over with my niece .

I just love it when I can do something nice for somebody , cause the satisfaction I get from doing it , it's a big reward ..

I think everybody should help somebody if they can, or just do something nice for somebody ..

hope everyone is having a nice day!!!!!!!!

did something nice

I made my zucchini bread today . always makes 2 loafs . so I always share one with different people . today I gave it to my neighbor across street . he was very appreciative and thanked me . I gave him one before a while ago , I asked him if he liked it . he said yes very much .. glad he apprecciated it made me feel good .
my neighbors are not very friendly .. they just don't get into conversations .. they pretty much keep to themselves ..

I shared baked goods with different neighbors .. trying to make friends .. but they still don't talk much .. I wish I had friendly neighbors like everybody else I know!!!!!!

new hilarious movie ,coming out this friday

hello friends ,

do you go to the movies much ?????..

I like to go to the movies , I go every ounce in a while but not that often really . I love to watch comedies , so when there is a good new comedy coming out I have to go see it .

has anybody watched BRIDGET JONE'S diary ?????? yes it's an old movie .. I loved it and I don't even know how many times I watched it ..

now many years later , they are coming out with a sequence .. wonder why they waited sooo long ..

well Renee has been out of Hollywood for a while .. I guess she needed a brake ..

just saw her on Kelly's talk show this morning .. she did say she wanted to take a long brake from Hollywood and so she did . she is back now

the movie BRIDGET Jone's baby is coming out this Friday .. there is a lot of talk on tv right now about this movie .. this is the latest hilarious comedy to go see ..

I am hoping to go see it , this weekend .. saw a lot of previews .. it does look like my kind of movie .. hilarious !!!!!!!!! I love to LAUGH!!!!!!!!

have a great day everybody !!!!!!! CIAO!!!!!!!
