Thankful Thursday

This first week of January 2020 I am thank for:

(1)  Silver Sneakers--I signed up for free and got free membership at Planet Fitness and the Y.

(2)  The mild winter weather we are having. 

(3)   Lunch at Cracker Barrel with my husband.

(4)   Playing Cribbage and Pinochle again with new friends at the Parma Sr. Community Center.  I used to play Cribbage a long time ago with my mom and Pinochle a long time ago when I worked for Buckeye Union Insurance Company.

(5)  I broke a couple records this week:  Got an all-time high for me on the AARP Word Wipe game of 14,723.

(6)  After not shooting pool for a year or so, I cleared the table in just 16 shots breaking my old record of 17 set back in 1917!

(7)  I got my 15-yr.-old cat to play a new game with me using a balloon.  (see video in previous post)

(8)  My Anthem OTC card came in the mail that I can use for up to $70 worth of certain products free at Walmart or CVS each quarter!

(9)  Our investments are all at an all-time high as of the end of December!

(10)  Played Pickleball and won more games than I lost--usually I break even.

(11)  I enjoyed getting my husband to join me at the Sr. Center for dealer's choice day when he won Rummy and I won Cribbage and Crazy Eights.

(12)  Had fun playing chair volleyball at the Sr. Center for the first time.  Looking forward to being on a team when they start a new season beginning February.

I love being retired!  I have some fun every day now!

I dont look at my investments because it makes me nervous - but I've heard from many people that the year ended good for plans... that makes me happy.
I'm dying to play Pickelball - I'm a huge fan of tennis so I want to get my tennis playing niece to do it with me.
Good job on the free Planet fitness membership. I've been curious about their gym.
Thanks for linking up with me!

Lin: I know, it's wonderful having time to get everything I want to do done in a day, including most importantly, having some fun!
