My wanderings of the past few days.
This past week went by so quickly, and I didn't get to write, or should say wasn't in the mood to write, and so probably will forget some things!! I am getting used to walking alone, and take my camera with me daily and take lots of pictures of the sunrise, ducks, and life in general. I like taking pictures, so it keeps me busy. Still volunteering at the senior center, there's excitement there, the 30Th anniversary is this week, and they have been painting, etc to get ready for the big event. I had my Antique club meeting, and did see my former walking partner, she looked good, so guess the freedom of not having schedules, etc has helped her. I told her I missed our morning talks as we walked. The antique meeting went well, our guest speaker gave a talk on lunch boxes. It was quite interesting, and the prices very surprising!!! Quite a big jump from the perhaps ten dollar original to the present day prices. She had around 500 lunch boxes, some that her Dad had left her when he passed. She said she usually bought two or three per year this days. She has a problem with storage. The food the hostesses prepared was good as usual and a good time was had by all. This weekend I went to the nursery that I just love, to get some sweet pea plants. Had been told in the summer that I should get them in Sept, so I got twenty four seedlings and got then planted today. Yea!!!!!! Hope to have lots of sweet pea bouquets this spring. I love there smell, and these are the old fashion kind that have the fragrance that I love. When I was getting the soil ready and adding some things to the soil, I dug up some daffodil bulbs, whoops!!! Now have to put them in a pot!!! Will to that tomorrow. I hope that they still bloom! My friend brought me some more roses from her garden today, and another friend, some tomatoes! So nice to have great friends. I was beat when I finished with planting and getting soil ready. It was a nice feeling of accomplishment though, so worth it!!
