What do I anticipate?

 auntyuta  DiaryLife in AustraliaOld Age  March 17, 2013 1 Minute


Here’s our Buddha. He seems to be happy enough in this wilderness area near our house. Being the 5th Sunday of Lent today, I should have attended Mass. However so far I didn’t go out at all yet. This afternoon we’re off to neighbouring Warrawong to watch Steven Spielberg’s Movie about LINCOLN.

So far so good. I am very happy that I am very much pain-free today. Tomorrow I’ll have to see the doctor about the test results. I anticipate the blood-test is going to show that I am okay.

What else do I anticipate? Well, I anticipate that I’ll probably live for another five or ten years. I also anticipate that I might perhaps even be able to venture on another overseas trip when I am in my eighties!

For next month I anticipate that we’re going to see the family over Easter and that Peter and I are going to enjoy our planned trip to Victoria. The beautiful warm summer weather will be gone by then. However I am looking forward to see a bit of the country side and then be spending a few days with family in Melbourne.

Auntie, Sister. Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Mother and Wife of German Descent I’ve lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com View all posts by auntyuta

  1. likeitiz EditGlad to hear you are out and about. Feel badly about the pain though. I hope you’ll enjoy “Lincoln.” My hubby and I found it quite powerful. Stay well!Reply
    1. auntyuta EditWell, we all have to suffer a bit of pain from time to time. I’m glad I feel better now. I am sure “Lincoln” will be worth watching. Thanks for commenting, Mary-Ann.Reply
      1. auntyuta EditWe’re back from seeing “Lincoln”. This was a movie with heart and soul and a great history lesson. What Lincoln had to say was very significant, even for modern times. I’d like to hear it all over again.
  2. berlioz1935 EditI hope you anticipate that I’m with you all the way. It is important that old people are not lonely. In today’s societies the elderly are often left to their own devices.I’m looking forward to our trip to Mildura and Melbourne. We will see our son and Granddaughter. I did do the same trip more than fifty years ago. What do I anticipate? Change !Reply
    1. auntyuta EditA trip to Mildura after a fifty year absence, Peter? For sure a lot of things will have changed. But maybe some things haven’t changed.?.And don’t forget we are also going to see our son’s extended family in Melbourne. I am so looking forward to seeing our great-granddaughters again. We didn’t see them for one whole year!. And it’s even been longer since we’ve seen the granddaughter who’s coming for a visit to Melbourne at the same time that we’re going to be there. Judging by the pictures she puts always on your face-book, she’s already very grown up and beautiful! When we were in Melbourne more than a year ago we were able to see both our granddaughters there, the daughters of our son. They’re both so very beautiful! And our grandson, the son of our son, he has such a beautiful family. We love them!Our son we haven’t seen for eight months. He came to stay with us for a week when Gaby died. Took the week off work, hired a big enough car to cart the whole family around on frequent trips to Sydney while the memorial for Gaby had to be organized. It will be good to see our son again, who’s birthday is on the 8th of April.Reply
  3. catterel EditNice positive post, Uta – a long and healthy life to you both. I’ve been missing my family back in switzerland – but that’s only a 2-hour flight away! So you have put things into perspective for me, distance is all relative! Thank you.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThank you, Cat.Reply
  4. Robert M. Weiss EditUta, good luck with your health, and I hope you achieve your long-range plans. Having positive thoughts, and walking on a daily basis, never hurts.Reply
  5. auntyuta EditThanks, Robert, I’ll keep it in mind!Reply
  6. Three Well Beings EditI certainly hope you’re in excellent health, Uta. Your list of anticipations is wonderful. You have an excellent outlook on life and that should keep you around for a very long time yet! Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThank you, Debra, thank you very much! Reply
  7. Island Traveler EditI’m glad you are pain free. I do believe the test results will be okay as well. I hope and pray for your good health my friend and that of your family. Happiness lives in your heart always.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThanks for your prayers and good wishes, dear IT.
      I am very lucky that I have a good dentist and good doctors to look after my health. I feel I have a very good life and am very grateful for this.Reply
  8. aussieian2011 EditTravel while you can Auntyuta, there is still much to see in our beautiful country, hope you get a chance to see our beautiful Murray river up here in Mildura, the weather is quite mild these days now, Autumn will be on us soon.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditOh yes, Aussieian, I anticipate Peter and I are going to have a wonderful day at your beautiful Murray river. Really looking forward to this! Yesterday we travelled to the western suburbs of Sydney. It felt like a hot summer day!Reply
  9. eof737 EditHe looks serene. Reply
  10. auntyuta EditYes, always, Eliz.Reply
  11. auntyuta EditReblogged this on AuntyUta and commented:This post I published more than six years ago. I anticipated to live probably for another five to ten years. Ah well, I just celebrated my 85th birthday. Now I anticipate that maybe I am going to live four another four or five years! Reply
  12. aussieian2011 EditTravel while you can Uta, it keeps the heart young, maybe a visit to the beautiful mountain country of Healesville and Marysville will lure you, not far from Melbourne, up in the hills, pristine mountain waters rippling over mountain streams, crisp air invigorating for the lungs and superb rural countryside vista, wherever you go, enjoy.Reply
  13. auntyuta EditIt is 2022 now. In less than three months I am going to be 88.
    Am I going to make it to 90? – And maybe a bit past ninety?
    Who knows! It is possible that old age won’t let me live much longer.
    It might be better for me to die pretty soon before I become too incapacitated. . . .Reply

    “I hope you anticipate that I’m with you all the way. It is important that old people are not lonely. In today’s societies the elderly are often left to their own devices.”

    “I’m looking forward to our trip to Mildura and Melbourne. We will see our son and Granddaughter. I did do the same trip more than fifty years ago. What do I anticipate? Change!”

    So, this is what Peter, my husband wrote more than nine years ago. He was born in May 1935 and in December 2020 he passed away, aged 85 and 1/2.

    I think, what Peter said about old people seems to me to be very true. I am one of those lonely people now! 🙂
