The difficulty is, when one gets older, so do all one's friends and we spend forever talking about health problems which really are self absorbing although not of such great interest to others. We have younger friends too who are beginning to get into the aches and pains part of life, distressing really. I suppose we shouldn't focus on them. There are at least a couple of women I have met bowling lately who are 94 and 82 and seem to be in the prime of life. The 94 yr. old, I am told by her daughters, bowls twice a week, goes line dancing and plays table tennis. Not sure I could cope with that at my age let alone 94. She is a tiny little woman too and yet fit, healthy and vibrantly alive. So if you are young and fit, beware of losing that healthiness and do everything you can to combat it, this does not necessarily include hours in the gym each week. Short and frequent exercising is better than a long session in the gym apparently. Less sitting on the couch watching TV, or in front of a computer (guilty).
Oops, I have just discovered pressing return in the wrong spot publishes one's blog. Will have to be careful.
On Thursday we are going on our Travel League Bowling, this is when members from different bowling alleys get together once a month at a different alley each time - we will be meeting a bunch of friends at The Crossroads restaurant for lunch before we bowl. We have been there once before for lunch although the others have been several times. If you'd like to read about the restaurant click here and you can see their menus and buffet offerings. It is all homestyle food and their home made baking is pretty well known in the area.
Friday I go for a refresher at Let It Heal which will be great. More and more people are going there on my recommendation. If you have pain, go for Bowen Treatment, I can highly recommend it.
The following recipe is one we have enjoyed several times over the years, so I am sharing it with you now.
