Never a Dull Moment

There is not much chance of me getting bored, even though I am spending a lot of time inside this winter. I just received another big project for my daughter, which she needs soon, so I have put aside the one I was working on and will spend some time on this. It is always nice to have something to do. Of course, I still plan to take time to watch my videos, read my books, do my jigsaw puzzles, and work in my colouring book. I have so many activities, I just have to choose what to do first. Seriously, I like having the projects from my daughter and I plan my day around the time I spend on them. It is snowing again here today, and very windy and cold. I have been having problems with Arthritis the last few days, so feel it is better not to go outside and walk. Will try and walk some around my apartment. Have a great day, everyone

Sometimes I just walk on the spot while watching TV.

That is a good idea. I often do some exercises while listening to one of my music CD's

That's great that you're getting so many projects from her, I know how much you enjoy doing them. Hopefully your arthritis will subside, I know that it can be weather related, take care.

Yes I am sure the weather affects it, it was really bad on the weekend when it was raining. But I refuse to take medication, just a tylenol if it gets too bad.

@AnneEJ I do not blame you, pain killers are all right for short term issues, but this is a life long ailment and taking too many pills will negatively affect your liver, and it will lower your pain tolerance level. I would imagine that all of the keyboarding that you do would be good for your fingers keeping arthritis out of your hands.

Sounds you kept quite busy Anne. Yes better to stay in so cold out. Arthritis is no fun. I have a touch of it, but not so bad yet. I hope the day is kind to you.

I don't have it all the time, but I think the rain on the weekend aggravated it. My hands and lower back are the worst. So typing helps to keep my fingers moving.

Walking should help ease your pain.

I remember the projects you do for your daughter, and know they keep you busy and help her. It's so nice that you can enjoy a variety of things to do. Hope your arthritis clears up soon. You can always stand and walk in place. I do it at times. It keeps the metabolism going and gives you a lift.

Projects are a great way to keep busy. Unfortunately I'm bad about having too many projects on the go all at once.

That's wonderful of your daughter to give you projects to work on.

Do not go out if the weather is cold, walk around inside the house, it's better than nothing.

Living alone can be an enjoyable experience when you know how to handle your time wisely, and you certainly know how to do that. Perhaps a heat bag or hot pad would ease that arthritis. Take care and keep warm.
