Wind down Wednesday

Wednesday is usually my busiest day with 2 yoga classes and 2 water aerobics classes, then a 2-hour “Wine Wednesday” chat with other women in the community lounge. I was all geared up for them all, with the pick-up truck packed for all events. I was quite energerized after the morning yoga classes, but no one showed up for swimming. I guess it was too cold——68! And, for some reason, no one appeared for Wine Wednesday. So I spent time getting acquainted with my new device – a Samsung Galaxy android. I still miss my old iPad, but I’m sure I will get used to this.

I also practiced the seven songs I will play at the community Christmas sing-along. The event was publicized in our community announcements….

This will be an evening in the clubhouse of Christmas cheer and fellowship beginning at 7:00 pm on 12/10. Please coThanksgivingme to wish all friends and neighbors of Retama a “Very Merry Texas Christmas” through song as we celebrate the season and enjoy the decorations in the clubhouse with song, fun, cookies, and punch. The songs will be lead by Joe Massey and Karmen Reid will be the accompanist.

Please plan to attend.

It was quite good.

And, for lunch I made a broccoli slaw salad which called for some of the slivered almonds left over from the Thanksgiving green beans.

We are watching Christmas shows on CBS, since that is the only TV station we get in the house. I had forgotten the famous, old stars whose voices narrated the shows…..Jimmy Durante in “Frosty the Snowman” and Burl Ives in “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer:
