December 2011 Archives
still retired, but so busy doing what i want that i can't believe how busy i am. the latest activity that i have going is a writing group that i began on a whim and it's unbelievable how it has evolved. we get together the second and fourth mondays and discuss different writing techniques and entries as well as experiences that we draw writing from.
walking has become an intregal part of my life. when i had the cafe, i walked around and around and most nights, i felt that i must have walked miles. this new walking is faster and always with a great group of women, chatting and laughing, stopping often to catch our breath. the sagamore resort is the preferred destination because it is so beautiful there.
our little tourist town is very quiet this time of year. no ice on the lake yet so no ice fishing and no snowmobiles. on winter sundays a group of dog owners take the pets to a park where they run around and get much needed exercise while the people visit and enjoy the day.
my housemate and i actually ate lunch on our porch today, basking in the warm december sun and appreciating the beauty all around. we have finished shopping and are relishing in the season. happy holidays.
