Beautiful day here!  Bowling wasn't so good...I reverted to bad form!  Oh well, there's always next week!  I finally won more than $1.50 at bingo tonight. 

Nothing else was going on.

CanAm Day at the park

For the 2018 version of CanAm day, it was 88 degrees!  A nice breeze was blowing which helped keep us cool enough to sit outside.  There were about 67 of us today - great job  by our hosts!

I  was tired enough that I chose to stay home and not play cards tonight.  So I've been a recliner potato!

Beautiful Sunday

I know that I sound like a broken record, but it was gorgeous here again today!  We went to church, of course.  Instead of going out for breakfast, though, we came home because we had things we wanted to accomplish today!  Dave cleaned the oven up at the clubhouse while I did work for the board.  I typed the March newsletter and the calendar.  Plus I got the residents list up to date and typed all of the info into the Directory.  I'm still waiting on one street list for the directory and a couple of articles for the newsletter.  But I feel really good about my progress!  Why, I even got in a walk!!

Baby O was very alert today.  Cassie said she was following them with her eyes.

Another gorgeous day in the neighborhood!  This morning started out really foggy, but when it burned off it was beautiful!!  This is why we're here!

We started our day with breakfast at the clubhouse with a bunch of our friends.  It was great as usual!  When Dave got home after washing dishes, we took off for the Wagon Wheel where we were able to get several things that we wanted from there.  I rode my cart, which was great with the big crowd that was there today. 

After naps, we watched The Post - very good movie!

I didn't sleep last night.  I finally conked out about 5:30 this morning...so I slept in a bit.  Then we went with Bob & Ann to the Legion.  Ann had a doctor's appointment this morning.  She got released from the wheelchair and is able to walk now.  She's walking with a walker so she's excited.

It was beautiful out there today!  Dolphins up close to the tables!

No updates from Oaklyn today...The kids are going back there this weekend.  Kyle is out of vacation and he's out of family leave, so when he goes to Iowa City he takes his computer and works from there.  Poor kids.  Cassie still has a couple of weeks left on maternity leave before she has to go back to work. 

After Dave got back from lawn crew, I went to the chiropractor.  Yay.  Then this evening I went to Weight Watchers.  I'm down another 2.8#...yay again!!

We have been having gorgeous weather here.  Dave helped one of his widows do some painting today while I did nothing.  When he finally got home, we went for a bike ride.  Two laps around all of the streets of the park.  Then we ate supper and finally it was time to play cards..

At cards, I've been saying to Ann that one of the ladies always has more cards than I think she should have.  Well tonight I caught her.  We're supposed to have 13 cards in our hand and 11 in our foot.  She had 16 and 13.  Not only that she tried to cover it up.  The next hand she did the right amount and the third hand Ann told her she might want to recount her cards.  No wonder she's always winning!  I don't appreciate this at all.  I could just not figure out why she has this whole stack of cards all the time!
