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!!

Well, last week was rather surprising, my walking partner of five and a half years, made an announcement that she no longer was coming to the senior center to volunteer or walk on any type of schedule. We walked around the lake Monday morning, and she didn't even mention it to me in private. Just told everyone else. I was rather hurt at first, but then, I got over it as I know she has been under a great strain with her older daughter having stage four cancer, another daughter getting married, and the youngest having a lot of problems with her health!!! I hope that being home and having a much lighter load will help. I do miss her companionship, but I will still do my walking. Who knows, perhaps another person will want to walk early as well. If not so be it. I also went to the garden club meeting. I like all the different people I have met in that group, and have learned new things about gardening. I will continue to attend the meetings, and tours as they come along. Looking forward to an outing this Thursday, and then there's the monthly birthday party for the seniors birthdays of September. That is fun to help with and see all the people who are in their eighties and nineties. I think it is wonderful that they are still participating in the groups, classes, etc. I hope I am when I reach that age!!!!
I had a great three day holiday. Did you? We had company on Sunday, then a very quiet Monday. I always enjoy having my daughter and family for a visit. Today, as usual my son and his daughter come for dinner. Gives him a break from cooking, and a day for us to visit. Works out great. It has been like fall this week. Not my favorite time of the year, although I love the colors of fall. The pumpkins are coming!!! I love to visit the pumpkin patch, no little ones to take, but I like taking pictures of the "patch". Till next time. Antique Rose
