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.
