Buttercup, A.K.A. #885



Here, you know me as Buttercup. When visiting Google+ I'm Carol Z. But if you are part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge in April, just call me #885. Blogging from A to Z is a very big -- I'm number 885 and the sign-up goes on until the end of March -- blog hop. Each day, excluding weekends, I'll blog about a different letter of the alphabet. Any one else joining in? I think it's a fun idea and a stretch for my sometimes rusty creativity.

I had a fun and relaxing Sunday. The usual laundry and grocery shopping figured in my day, but I also spent some time with my college roommate enjoying coffee and conversation. It was a great way to start the day. This evening I went to a program at the Jewish Community Center on volunteer opportunities for people 60+. The speakers were very interesting and they represented some wonderful organizations. I will probably sign up to volunteer at a local theater. They have a range of great arts activities and it's only a short walk from home. I'm starting to focus on what happens after the big "R" later this spring. More blogging definitely, but I also want to make sure I am involved in community activities. The last few years have focused around work and health issues, but that will change very shortly. Are there new activities that you took up post-retirement?

Eeks! Monday is just around the corner. I am hoping, hoping for a less intense week and a few minutes to stop and smell the proverbial roses. Wishing you those same few minutes and many more!
