Yesterday found me playing Pickleball and then walking afterwards. I had gone with the intention of "one last try", but am pleased to say that by wearing a rubber sleeve on my left knee, I'm not as sore today. I will continue to take each week as it comes because I really enjoy the sport, but I'm not willing to risk damage to my knees by playing. I am thankful that I am able to walk almost daily, to bike ride, to try new things like Pickleball.
I am thankful for this body I have and also the wisdom that comes with age-such as- I should have taken better care of it. I am thankful that hubby and I can play the same sport; I will say I'll stick with the beginners, while he plays with the very advanced players.
Last night our sil took us to a semi-pro Hockey game; we've gone to two games before and while I never thought I'd enjoy it, I really do. Last night was such fun because we had two granddaughters with us; the past games we saw were very calm, but last night there were a few fights-I don't like that part of the game. My family keeps telling me that this is what hockey is all about. I am thankful for the chance to go again. Thankful that our sil invited us to go along. We have two of the worlds best sils!!! They rock!!!
Today I will be taking Hunter for a walk with Kam and Lexie; I'm so thankful for Kam-she is such a wonderful friend. After we return and the air has warmed(side note-we are supposed to get up to 65 degrees today, then snow tomorrow), we will be going on our first bike ride this year. I am beginning to believe that biking is going to be my favorite type of exercise; I have also decided that if I have to stop Pickleball, I will get a stand for my bike-so I can ride inside all winter next year. Doesn't seem as fun but it beats being sedentary.
We had some other good news this morning-we now have a future date that we will be moving to our new home. Yes!!!
I hope your Thursday is filled with all that makes you smile and laugh.
