Warm winter wishes to you on this Friday~well it is now official, winter is not yet over, at least here in Colorado despite the wishes of many of us. Snow started to fall, in earnest, last evening and hasn't stopped since. Our youngest daughter called this morning to make sure our Valentine's Day party that had been postponed wasn't canceled and I replied "of course not, I don't have to drive". So today at lunch all nine grands will arrive for our much awaited party. All the kiddos are now healthy and so we are finally able to get together. I'll be making some sugar cookies for them, have a couple of simple art projects and we will share lunch. Of course, I've got Conversation hearts for them as well as another little heart candy-such fun.
I wanted to tell you about our first time playing pickle ball on Wednesday. Firstly, I don't think it is slower than badminton and I ran just as much. It is fun to play but what an aerobic workout; that is a good thing because my holistic doctor said he wanted me have lots of aerobics this winter. Although the group is a senior group I felt like the oldest there~didn't really know to much strategy and everyone else has been playing a long time. Beginner group-uh huh. It is a cross between tennis and ping pong with large plastic balls and racquets the size of ping pong racquets. As I watched the ladies warm up, it definitely reminded me of ping pong but when the play started it was more like tennis. We didn't stay the entire two hours but hope to go back next week for another try. I am still participating in the Strong Women class as well so hopefully by the time spring arrives I will be in better shape.
So for those of my friends who live in the land of winter, with snow and inclement weather, how do you stay fit during the long months when you can't necessarily be outside? I could bundle up and walk but can't find anyone who would brave the cold with me. I want to try WII with our daughter but I'll have to go to her house.
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend dear ones~don't forget to thank the One who gives us life.
