Staying Busy

(Avon Park, FL) Hi 81 Lo 59 –  This winter is going to be so different than last year. I’m BUSY! I’ve been getting up a little earlier on Fridays to get to the Happy Hookers. My vest is not looking good, so I was glad to go to the meeting today to see what’s happening to it. As you can see in the photo below the sides are curved, and they're supposed to be straight. I decided to start over. The nice thing about crocheting is, you can pull the whole thing out and start over. I’ll try again and if I don’t get it this time, I’ll take it back apart and try to make something else that’s easier.

Here’s the Happy Hookers group. There’s all kinds of things being made by crocheting, knitting and rug making.

The men do woodworking. They carry cases with all their tools. It’s amazing what they make. In March there will be a show where they’ll show off what they’ve made this year.

After lunch Kathleen and I walked our mile and while out we noticed how the lake looked like a mirror. There’s usually a breeze with ripples on the water, but not today.

Jim went to fuel up his truck. It's not good to let diesels sit long during the winter without a full tank, due to the possibility of condensation inside the tank getting into the fuel. He also went to the Avon Park Library for a while, and picked up a Christmas gift for one of our grand kids. While he was gone I worked on the kitchen floor, and while on my knees I noticed the cupboards needed some cleaning. I got it all done before he got back.

We went next door to Judy and Jim’s for happy hour. We stayed an hour or so then it was time to get dinner before going to the clubhouse to play cards. We both stayed busy today.

I should check into the carving. I don't think I have the patients for crocheting.

Happy Hookers? I thought maybe you were taking up either fishing or another "occupation" to supplement your retirement income! ;c)
