After a long boring winter, spring has me up and moving! I'm spending lots of time at the vineyard. I've been planting flowers, preparing for planting a large organic vegetable garden, and providing food when we have an event. We are making box lunches on weekends, and this last Saturday and Sunday, we had the veranda full of people enjoying the wine, the food and the beautiful weather!
If you come out Saturday afternoon, plan on going to Paola afterwards. The 7 Somerset Ridge Painters will be participating in the Art Crawl from 5 to 9pm. We will be exhibiting our work at Molly's Table. It is a fun evening with Somerset Ridge wines and Molly's food....the art work is pretty special, too!
Now, here is a funny story....
It seems I have a dear friend or family member who feels I need to read a magazine called Women’s Health. I have received 3 issues in the last week and a half. I can guarantee you, I would not order this magazine for myself…. I am on the ugly side of 60; I have never thought of exercise as something I should try.
I remember back in 1988 or 89, my daughter was teaching a 6am aerobic class for the City of Overland Park. Cindy said to me “come on Mom, it will make you feel wonderful!” Then she followed up with “Just think, by 7am, the worst part of your day will be over!” I think I whined, pouted, possibly even begged for me to be “excused”, but there was simply no way Cindy would accept that. Next thing I knew, I was in sweats, headed to the Community Center for an Aerobics class. Good Grief, how do I get myself into these things?
Upon arrival, Cindy, in her cute little multi-colored spandex outfit and her little headset with microphone, told me (I was wearing a not-so-little and definitely not cute, baggy navy blue sweats) to take my borrowed workout pad to the back row. My immediate thought was “Thank God, no one will see me suffering!”
The music (not Glen Miller or Frank Sinatra) began making the gym walls throb with the beat. The 20 or so "fellow classmates" began following Cindy in their morning workout. They obviously had been there before.
What a nice way to end the evening! Think I'll head into the kitchen......
