I hope everyone had a happy memorial day and was able to reflect on the people who have served in the armed forces to protect our freedom. I had plenty of time to think about it today since I stayed home alone. I can remember many memorial days when I didn't even give the true meaning a thought....it was just a day off and usually with a picnic. Maybe it's because I am older now and tend to be more thoughtful of things but I am appreciative of all those who have served and especially overwhelmed that some gave their lives so I could have the freedom that I do.
I haven't blogged in almost a year. No real reason just didn't have much to write about. Life is about the same for me. My knee is so much better. I only have a little stiffness if I sit too long....but I am able to walk without pain! (For someone reading this that didn't know I had a total knee replacement and was recovering when I last wrote. )
I am still doing the Foster Grandparent program. This year I was in a kindergarten class and just loved it. Last winter I realized one day that hardly any children had neck scarves....I felt bad for them because it was so cold so I asked if they wanted me to make them one. Of course they all wanted on so I had quite a job to get them all done. Here is a picture of them with their scarves
Altogether I made 19 scarves....several children were absent the day of the picture.
We sure had a good time this year. I can't believe that all these children now know how to read
and also some are great writers. Just this last month I started teaching them how to play chess...some have caught on quite well.
If you notice I have a new profile picture. My hair has changed....don't know for sure if I will keep it like this (blonde) but I will try it out for this summer.
I have also joined a fitness center and am trying to get in shape...it sure is difficult as we get older!
That's about all for now. Be back soon.
