And Now the 7 "Things About Me"

1. I am old enough to remember when my siblings and I paid 50 cents for general admission seats at Yankee Stadium on "Ladies Day".
2. I was an "athlete wannabe" when I was a child, and this syndrome has recently reared it's head again. I am now playing over 60 basketball, and participated in this event at the 2009 New Jersey Senior Olympics.
3. I started learning to play piano a year ago. Although my grown children flee to another room when I play, I'm enjoying myself immensely, and my grandchildren don't seem to mind hearing me play.
4. My two favorite places are the coast of Maine, and Hawaii.
5. I taught sunday school (or CCD to us Catholics) for 13 years.
6. I received an award at the very first art show that I participated in - and it was the Grumbacher Silver Medal.
7. I love to paint flowers - possibly because I can't seem to grow them without killing them.

Michelle, I am glad you taking piano lesson. It is never too late. I myself reconnect with the piano lesson too this year after several years apart from it. So now you will get to do great watercolor and playing wonderful music.

What a beautiful list. I bet you could create a similar weekly list, and for the rest your life, never run out of things to say. As we go along, many of us can have a tendency to forgot 'all' that we trully are. It's always great to see folks keeping the reminder going.
