I have signed up at the local YMCA, only about a mile from my house here, and I have started taking the beginner yoga classes. I am really enjoying it very much--four classes under my belt so far. Flexibility has never been my strength, but I can already feel a small difference and I am definitely more aware of my posture.
They say that yoga is good for blood pressure and insomnia. I really would be happy to find that to be true.
My other "keep busy" tactic is to find a volunteer opportunity while I am in Florida. I thought about the library since that is what I do at home, but then I found this place. I went to a volunteer orientation today. It is not far away although it is a little tricky to get there (Thank God for GPS!). It is a very cool place. I don't know what I will be asked to do. I know it is a little mean spirited, but I do kind of hope that they give the shovel-horse-manure jobs to those who are court ordered to do community service rather than to us do-gooder retirees.
I am hearing some rumbles of thunder. We have had a lot of rain for this being the "dry season." However, we have not had the kind of flooding rains that have occurred in eastern parts of the state. It was beautiful here all day and I got in both a walk and a short bike ride. My bone density test in December was mildly bothersome so I am recommitting to exercise.
