It's approaching fast. Age 60 is closing in on me. And it sounds SO OLD
Fortunately Mike is about 5 weeks older than me, and he is my inspiration on staying young after 60!
|Mom giving Mike a noogie? It's a long story!|
|Antique shopping with Mike is always crazy!|
|As is grocery shopping with him at Easter...|
|Another day...another antique mall!|
|And his new Irish look...|
And so my new aspiration for age 60?
|hellraiser. And I plan to be the best one around! (Thanks to sister Angie for the inspiration).|
So I decided to start getting in the groove BEFORE my 60th...

Of course there can be the down side to turning 60. I may be the new poster child for the commercial "Help. I've fallen and I can't get up." Last week I got out of the car with my hands full of stuff. My shoe lodged in a crack between the driveway and sidewalk, and down I went. Really! I couldn't make this stuff up. Mike was still in the car, and he said I just disappeared from view.
I lay there for awhile trying to assess everything that hurt. Shoulder, hip, knee and hand were all vying for my attention. Fortunately I don't have any broken bones, but I do have some nice bruises to commemorate this little spill. So the moral of the story? Take your time and make multiple trips between the car and the house. Don't be a Diane! OK, maybe I should take this hellraiser thing slowly!!!

And in addition to contemplating turning 60, I've been keeping busy with jewelry class. I am taking classes two days a week, and it's a blast. Oops, maybe that's not the right choice of words given that we are working with torches...
Here is what I'm working on:
|Hollow silver ring with flower petals.|
|Mike, Diane, Angie & Eric at Bru Burger on Mass Ave.|
And there's been some great family time this past week. My sister Angie and her family stayed with us a couple of days while they made several college visits. We enjoyed hanging out with them and taking in the city...
|Nephews Dane and Adam grooving with the Dancing Lady |
|Dane biked 8 miles with me like it was nothing. Holy cow!|
As usual, I'll end with the sights and sounds around me. Make no mistake. It's definitely an interesting life!
|Layers of clouds.|
|Pretty in pink.|

And don't worry. I'm being VERY CAREFUL as 60 races at me. Keep your feet out of cracks I say!
Take care and have a great week!
