This morning I went to the cardio exercise class of Silver Sneakers for the first time in over a year. I did pretty well – better, in fact, than I had expected. I could do almost all the exercises; those requiring raising my arms above shoulder level were the main ones that I couldn’t do. Several of the women in the class told me that they have noticed how well I’ve been doing; one of them even told me that I inspire her.
This afternoon Carl came to visit for a while. He did a little chore for me; he installed a new filter on my outdoor faucet. I had removed the old one last night and was planning to put on the new one today. However, when Carl called me to say that he would be here for a visit, I saved the job for him to do. It still is hard for me to get down on my knees and even harder to get back up, so I really appreciated his help.
After that chore was finished, we went to the Hunan Lion in the Brodie Oaks Shopping Center for dinner. It was very good. I brought home the leftovers from both our meals; so I’ll have probably two more meals.
