WEds missing... Thurs. busy day

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Bush day... started at 9am when I got down to the Meals on Wheels and helped cook a Ham and Corn Chowder for 19 people....Then met with the lady to discuss being a Nursery School volunteer and got some of the paperwork started.

Then I had 3 things to choose from for my 2pm timeframe. I decided I would go to book club quickly to say Hi, but I hadn't read the book because I didn't like it, and neither did anyone else. Left after half and hour and went to our church's games day. I sat at a table with women trying to put together a 1000 piece puzzle... not my thing to do, and we didn't get much sorted....

Came home and went for a 1 hr. walk with my neighbor in mist and mild rain. Tired.....

    FIRST OFF, I LIVE IN A 55+ COMMUNITY. MANY PEOPLE HERE HAVE MEALS ON WHEELS AND I SAY - GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOUR WORK. I AM STILL ABLE TO DO MY OWN COOKING BUT JUST BARELY. SECOND, MAY I MAKE A SUGGESTION? WE TOO HAD A BOOK CLUB WHERE WE ALL READ THE SAME BOOK AND FOUND THAT MANY LOST INTEREST OR DIDN'T LIKE THE BOOK. SO WE SWITCHED TO READING WHAT WE WANT AND WE EACH HAVE 5 MINUTES TO TALK ABOUT OUR BOOK. THEN THE PRESIDENT WRITES UP A LIST OF THE BOOKS READ AND PRINTS IT OUT FOR ALL THE MEMBERS. THAT WAY WE CAN TRY SOMETHING THAT WE MAY HAVE OVERLOOKED BEFORE. WE HAVE NOW GONE FROM 6 TO 23 MEMBERS IN 6 MONTHS. AND I MAY BE NUTS, BUT I LOVE WALKING IN THE RAIN - ARTHRITIS AND ALL. OR BETTER YET - DOING IT IN THE SNOW!
