Years wrinkle the skin. But to lose enthusiasm in life wrinkles the soul. 


Good morning everyone on this warm November morn. No class today. Got the call yesterday that our Spanish teacher won't be in today. Lots of disappointment here. Spanish, along with Holistic Healing, are my two favorite classes, and the semester is winding down. That's one less lesson, but I understand that she wants to be with her sister during surgery.

I've decided not to go back to Tai Chi. To be honest, I am not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Oh, in the beginning it was fun, but now it has worn out its newness. Not only are there too many moves to remember, but I can't even finish the hour without sitting because my back starts aching. I know it is good for you but I feel like I am getting nothing out of it.

My union offers chair yoga for us retirees at the same time on Fridays. I 'd like to give it a shot.Called the union yesterday and am now going to check out their courses. In December when Short Story ends, they have Qi Gong on Mondays so I'm going to give that a try as well. Not going this Friday, though. Desperate need for a haircut, and my girl is in on Fridays. I was going to go to class first, but time to take care of myself.

Since I am off today I am headed out to do my big grocery shopping rather than wait until Saturday. Already started buying the staples for Thanksgiving. Can't believe it is right around the corner.

Before I forget, I had a quiet night last night. I realize now that after these early morning bouts, my upstairs neighbor disappears fora few days which makes me think he might be packing a suitcase? But at that hour? And, if so, why not do it while people are still up instead of pacing back and forth in the living room for hours.

Well, have a good one.
