Dancing Makes Me Happy


I went to a small line dancing class on Wednesday and I must admit that I was enchanted. I am always looking for ways to stay fit and dancing is always my first choice. I love to dance and always have and if I say so myself, I can still move the old bones around. Zumba is my first love but anything that involves music and moving is good for me. No matter how bad I feel if I plug my iPod into the speaker and turn up the volume I dance and begin to feel better right away! So maybe I don’t move the way I did at 30 or 40 (you get the picture) but I don’t care. I’m still happy.

Turn on the music and give it a try! Happy Friday!!!

Can We Ever Feel Safe Again?


After the unspeakable horror that took place yesterday, I had to resist the urge to drive the four hours to my sons home to hug my grandchildren. I can’t imagine how the families feel. How do you accept the death of your kindergartener while they were in school?  One of the doctors on TV said that parents should tell their children that they are safe and that they have to go back to school on Monday. If my child refused I don’t think I would be forcing them. I realize that we can’t live our lives steeped in fear but I don’t think we can feel safe in the ways we used to.

I believe that we have to get rid of the guns. I know the rhetoric that says guns don’t kill, people do. I hear that but the reality is that without guns that young man probably wouldn’t have been able to kill twenty-six people. Most other methods would not have been as efficient. Yes he could have used a bomb or other explosive device but it just doesn’t seem as likely. I would like to get rid of the guns and then see where we are.

What do you think?

No Pool, No Fool


The pool is still shut down thanks to superstorm Sandy. My whole exercise routine is shot to heck. I haven’t replaced the activity and now I am so stiff. Ah middle age!! Anyway my challenge is to find things to do until we can swim again. Strength training, walking, Zumba other exercise/dance classes will help. I can’t let this derail me.

Defeat is always around the corner if you aren’t careful. I intend to be as careful as I can! More to follow.

Simple Things Are Still The Best


I don’t always have as much money as I want to spend but the basics are covered. I don’t always want to work but I generally have work to go to. I could always buy more yarn but I always have at least enough for the next project. I would like to hear from the kids and grandkids more often but I know that they are well. I have food in the fridge, a roof over my head and a running car. I’m blessed. Can’t do better than that.

I Can’t Prove It But I’m Fairly Sure That Day Time TV Rots Your Brain


Judges, doctors, game shows, Jerry Springer, nitwit morning show conversations. Need I say more.
