Wednesday Ramble

Life is best enjoyed when time periods are evenly divided between
labor, sleep, and recreation. . . all people should spend one-third
of their time in recreation which is rebuilding,
voluntary activity, never idleness.

Brigham Young

 Good morning, everyone.  We've had some very nasty weather here.  Walking has been treacherous.  You know it has to be bad for me to miss my art class, but I'm sure they didn't have it yesterday anyway.  We're all seniors, you know. Thankfully it is going to warm up today.  I'm going stir crazy staying in.  At least this year I have a computer, though.  I remember last year I not only couldn't get out to see my friends, but couldn't even talk to my online friends. I was very depressed at this time last year.

Speaking of art.  Finally learned how to draw a banana. LOL!!!  Don't laugh.  It turned out to be a lot harder than I thought.  Boy, do I have a ways to go.

I've got to head out to Pathmark for my refills this morning.  Just took the last of my BP pills, and I learned my lesson about going without them.   Maybe I will head on over to the old center since they are only a block away, but I haven't made up my mind.  Haven't been there in over a week now, and maybe it is time to make a clean break.  But then again, I really like this one couple I usually eat with.  

I was doing some online research, and I found a place that offers classes in herbalism, It is $30 a class, a bit too steep for me, but I see they offer senior citizen discounts so now I am waiting for a call. They also offer several other interesting classes.  I also discovered that Kingsborough College offers free classes for seniors.  The only cost is an $80 registration fee.  Can't beat that.  College credits are thousands of dollars.  Who knows, as good as I am feeling since I started losing weight I might even be able to return to some part time work.  Of course, summer is a ways down the road, and by then I may be questioning whether or not I want to get into homework and papers again.

Well, that's about it for today.  When one stays in, there isn't much to talk about.  I'm off for breakfast and a shower.  Have a good one. 


  1. Glad you're feeling better Mary! You are a very busy retired woman! :)

  2. Seriously, that is one helluva banana! You're right, bananas are surprising hard to draw but you've got that banana's number!

  3. Wow, you did a wonderful job drawing that banana!!

  4. I'm glad you're feeling so well this winter Mary! That's wonderful! Big hug! And I think your banana is fabulous. I mean it!
