A Week Goes By

Monday was a cleaning day after all the rains, and Linda had her Beading Club.  She’s turning out some great projects, and learning a lot from the group.  I just ran some errands, restocked the food, and did some small projects.

On Tuesday we went on a long bike ride, which is a first for me after my hip surgery.  It was fun riding along the golf course and the adjacent housing development, Arizona Traditions.  And after the ride my hip felt OK.

Wednesday was pizza and a movie day with our friends.  We went to the local UltraStar Cinema.  We saw It’s Complicated, starring Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, and Alec Baldwin.  It was a light and funny.  It’s more of chick flick, but it was Senior day and we even got free popcorn.  After the movie, we stopped at Papa Murphy’s for some take and bake pizzas.  Ron & Ethyl were nice to let us use their oven and house for the dinner.  It’s always fun when we get together.

Thursday was laundry day.  I also went to the driving range to hit a bucket of balls.  I haven’t tried golf since I injured my hip so I thought I would get back into it.  As you can expect, I didn’t hit the ball well, but it was fun to try the game again.  My hip did OK, but I could tell I was doing some unusual twisting.  My plan is to try the range a couple of times a week to check how the hip does, and to see if I can start to hit the ball better, or at least off the ground.

Friday was Happy Hour at Bob & Maggies, and then dinner at the local Chinese restaurant.  To much food, and to much good conversation and laughter.  It’s tough over here at Happy Trails.  We hope everyone else is having a good time also.
