|Whatcom Falls last Saturday|
After a pretty miserable wet morning, with lots of time spent going from place to place on the bus, I was happy to get home, with a chance to dry off and settle in for the rest of the day. One of the things I did today, for the first time, was to attend a Zumba class at the Senior Center. This was billed as "Zumba Gold," which is especially tailored for seniors. It's a very popular class, and one of my good friends attends regularly.
There were at least twenty women in the class, and the instructor was quite good. She also teaches a regular Zumba class, and this was hard enough that I wondered what is different about the traditional class. It was fun, and I got a good workout, so you know I'll be going back to attend again. They also offer a yoga class twice a week so I signed up for one next Monday and will see how that goes. Little by little, I'm getting my exercise routine back on track. But I still want to join a regular yoga studio and will make my way there eventually.
After such an awful start to the day, I was completely taken by surprise when it not only stopped raining, but the sun is shining gloriously. It seems like it's been quite awhile since I've seen so much sunshine. The days are beginning to lengthen, and we have passed the halfway point between winter and spring on the calendar. I see fat buds on the trees, too.
I am staying away from the news, since that terrible earthquake in Turkey and Syria is taking up all the oxygen, and I can barely stand to see it happening. Often when I think my world is dire, all I have to do is think about the people suffering in such conditions. My heart goes out to them.
