Now to catch up from last Saturday.
Sunday: Up early and at church again at 8:00 a.m. for choir practice. It really feels good to sing in the choir again. After church we came home for lunch before going to Scottsdale with Rick and Sharon for a little antiquing.
Monday: Our bike group met at 9:00 a.m. for our weekly ride to brunch. This past Monday we rode 15 miles. Our leader, Bob, keeps extending the miles. Who knows what it will be next week. The funny part is,neither o f us are sore when we get back. In fact it is really fun.
Monday afternoon, Ann and I headed for the wood shop for a wooden pen making class. We will finish them on the 15h. This was an experience for me as I have never done anything with wood before. The first lessons we learned was how to use the equipment. Then we practiced on the lathe with a dummy piece of wood. WOW was that an experience. I have never used a lathe before. When we return to class on the 15th we will be turning our pens. I am not sure how it will turn out. I would like to make some bowls next year, I am hoping I will enjoy working with wood.
Tuesday: We headed up to the ballroom to preview the shows the park will be bringing to Paradise in 2013. After that we took our walk around the park, and got our mail.
Last night we picked walked over to get Ann and Gary and headed to the ballroom for the "Paradise players in "Bull in a China Shop". It was opening night and it was hilarious. The cast forgot their lines which made it even funnier. The ad libs were to funny. I am sure tonight we be even better and tomorrow night even better than that.
Wednesday Today we woke up to a chilly Sun City. The temps dropped 20 degrees since yesterday. The wind made it even cooler. Our hopes were the weather would not hinder our plans to go to the Phoenix Zoo with Chelle and Jacob. Since it was lunch time we decided to stop at Subway. The zoo was a lot of fun, especially since we were with the kids. It reminded me of the times the 4 of us have had when the kids were growing up. What a special day!!
