Here I am seven weeks since my move to an independent living apartment and I have come to enjoy the freedom of no cooking (although I can) but their meals and salad bar are more than adequate and so I am keeping my stove nice and clean. There is weekly housekeeping which frees me from running my vacuum and mopping my floors. I have more time to enjoy life read exercise and make new acquaintances.
I was able to write my first column for our newsletter featuring Valentine’s Day and posing the question “what Is love”? I asked at random my fellow residents for their meaning of it and their comments were wonderful. The finished newsletter came to our mailboxes yesterday and it received rave reviews. Need I say how inspired I am and look forward to my next opportunity perhaps featuring spring and St. Patrick’s day.
Happy New Year to all of you. It has been a whirlwind for me since my last post. And I am finally settled (more or less) in my new residence. Although it is a big adjustment I am finding a peace of mind and a great feeling of comfort. I don’t have to cook or clean which is a treat after doing this for a very long time Their homemade soups and rolls are filling and delicious.
Tiffany is my weekly housekeeper and she is a whiz at keeping my place spiffy and so clean. My biggest hurdles have been the adjustment to having things done for me. I have so may hours to enjoy reading, chatting exercise and anything I want to do or try. Meeting men and women with years of life experiences will keep me interested as I meet and listen to their life story so to speak.
I know I will be sharing some of their stories with you, so please stay tuned.
Current Mood: Happy & Playful
