Go for a walk.

Activity2004Administrator in reply to Miracle43

That's a great idea. How far do you go when it is snowing? :-)

Depends really. About 2-3 miles. Still in lockdown so can’t really go far.

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to Miracle43

Do you also walk around the house for exercise? :-)

Try too, currently working from home so walk around while on the phone ☺️

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to Miracle43

That's good to hear! I try to do the walking around up and down the steps here because I don't want to sit too long and I don't want to go out when the temps. are too cold. :-)

Sadly not far...through the fields in the village...cannot go further in lockdown

When it's a snow day, I do some reading and catching up on some e-mail messages. I also try to call/send messages to my friends to see how they're doing. :-)

Drink wine and watch movies. Come to think of, I do that when it does not snow as well.

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to Max225

What movies do you watch on snowy days and also when it's not snowing? :-) My favorite is Forrest Gump. :-)

I like all types.Older classics like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, musicals like Seven brides for seven brothers also modern romances like sleepless in Seattle or you've got mail and I like mamma mia and my big fat greek wedding.

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to Cavapoochonowner

I like those as well. Haven't seen them in a while, but I will have to go through my movie collection and see if I can find them. Great idea! :-)

The King and I and A Dogs Purpose are my two favourite films.

Yes, I like The King And I too but I haven't seen a Dogs Purpose.Hope it's not sad.Watched Hattchi A Dogs Tale and My Dog Skip before we got a dog, and cried like a baby.Don't think I could ever watch them again now we have our little dog.

Oh it's a beautiful film and a bit sad. I cry at the drop of a hat. My sister and I like Blood Brothers and the King and I on the stage but she gets embarrassed because I cry my way through both !

I know! I love dog films but cry, and then my eyes are swollen, and I get a headache and then I think why did I watch that movie again? when I knew I would end up with a headache?

We went to the pictures twice while on holiday a couple of years ago to see mama mia 2.I'd cried the first time when I knew Meryl Streep had died, then we went again because my daughter loved it so much.This time I was trying to control the crying almost from the beginning because I knew what was coming.I think what got me was the daughter going through having a baby without her mother there.Heartbreaking.I've not watched it since.

I think I may have seen The King and I a few years ago on TV, but I can't remember if it was during a snowy day. :-)

I agree and" breakfast at Tiffany's"

Yes, such a classic.Audrey Hepburn such an elegant lady, so stylish

I actually saw Forrest in a movie theater (Those were the days). I got rid of Netflix; got Criterion instead. So, I’m binging on classics and so-called “art cinema”. Some it’s good, many are mediocre. Like the 1980’s and forward Japanese and Korean movies. I see where Tarantino got the stuff.

Go for a walk - love the snow ❄️

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to LizzieAFib

How far do you go for the walks when it's snowing? :-)

Our usual daily walk, around the top of our village hill which is aprox 1hr, depending on the weather. Normally we would walk up the hill from the village, and then along the top and back down, through the village and home, but have got lung problem at the moment, so can’t do uphill and have to stay on fairly level ground.

We go to a nearby woodland area which is about 180 acres. I know it well so feel safe covering a fair distance without worrying what we are stepping into. Usually for about an hour in snow then home for a hot chocolate and a tripe stick. The tripe stick is for my dog!

Take our rescue dog for a walk as she adores the snow and I love it ahe it first snows. She is hilarious as she often loses her ball in deep snow a d sticks her hairy muzzle in the snow in an effort to reach her ball the snow sticks to it and she looks like she is a black dog but with a white beard.

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to rosewine

This sounds so cute! Thank you for saying this! She sounds like she really enjoys being outside even in the snow. Does she ever have you help her find the toy balls? :-)

If she can't find them she will run around trying to see where it has gone. She will suddenly stop a look at me intensely as though to say "help me Mom" and I will point to where I think it is hidden and she goes off in that direction to find it. We didn't take one today as it was very wet here and the park was muddy. Along came another one with a squeaky ball and she pinched it andcwme runnung back with it and put it at my feet to throw so fortunately I was able to give it back.

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to rosewine

Yes, sometimes, my cat goes and chases after her toys in the house and when she can't find something, she gets me or my parents to help then she expects to have that toy be thrown in her direction to go back to play. She's so funny sometimes! :-)

Try to get out for our walk as usual. Then batch cook for freezer.

Hello crazyfitness

Actually it does not feel to bad. Only thing that bothers me is I take forever to heal broken bones. Broke a leg and would not heal, I was 8 months in full leg cast. I did not have walker cast and in wheel chair. My heart goes out to anyone who has to spend much time in sling collapsible wheelchair.

I'm glad it doesn't feel too bad. Oh my goodness you do take a long time to heal. I agree, feel for those that are in a wheelchair.

Take care🙏

I will be in a wheelchair until I get my hip replaced on February 26 the pain is so bad I had to give up on the walker or cane. My surgeon says I have bursitis and that adds to the bad hip and my spine cannot support it because of 2 collapsed discs . Need prayer

Skylane2 in reply to Big_Dee

Ouch! that hurts to think about it

Big_Dee
Big_Dee in reply to Skylane2

Hello Skylane2

The wheelchair sling that one sits in, wraps around your hips and hurt worse than my broken leg. I would suggest a piece of plywood and cushion to put in sling to take load off your hips. My hips were so numb from sitting in wheel chair I use to drag myself out and sit on floor. Blessings.

Activity2004
Activity2004Administrator in reply to crazyfitness

Doing exercise indoors on snowy/bad weather days is a great idea. I walk up and down the steps during the day regularly, but I do more of the up and down the steps during snowy days the most since I don't want to get too cramped up from sitting too long. I also don't want to go out and fall. With bad/no depth perception, I don't know how far I am from an icy patch.

crazyfitness
crazyfitnessAmbassador in reply to Activity2004

Oh walking up and down the stairs is one of the best exercises. Sitting for too long isn't good for you, we need to keep the joints going as much as possible.👍👍

I saw a feature on TV where a man used his blow torch to clean his driveway and melt the snow,( not recommended )

We do not have a lot of snow, normally 2-4 times a year. We had two snow storms back to back this year. Totaling about 10 inches. I don't mind shoveling the snow. :)

For my senior neighbors that don't have love ones close by .This is a volunteer service that I share every 1st and 3rd Fridays ,anytime of the year Before Covid it became a popular neighborhood activity, however I continue to bake for 2 lovely seniors on my street .They are so sweet !

Thanks to them for giving us there best ,to allow us into Their hearts ,to share, have patience ,hope and love ,I presently volunteer for Behavioral Challenged Children ,sending to you and family ,peace ,patience ,and joy !

Some hours seem to be much better than others. In a sort of limbo at the moment. Trying to keep my head above the waterline.

I don't like change AT ALL, regardless of the specific situation. I share this unit with my sister. I'm her full-time caregiver. The unit we have lived in (for almost 17 years) is a DUMP. However, with credit in the sub-basement, renting in a secure apartment community, or anywhere else for that matter, will be a huge challenge to attempt to overcome.

Thanks so much for asking. Much appreciated.

I'm never OK, but I'm a survivor and have a measure of 'fight' left within me.

BTW, you may want to take a look at Eric Hoffer's four books, one of which is titled, "The Ordeal of Change". Extremely worthwhile.

Rbeth
RbethReading Rabbits in reply to Activity2004

Thanks for responding. I just finished “The Night Portrait “, a novel of WW2 and Da Vinci’s Italy by Laura Morelli. I loved it! “The Woman in the Window “ a stunning novel with twists in the plot. By A. J. Finn. I enjoyed it. I belong to a book club. My neighbor put together a club for the ladies on our street eleven years ago. There are about 15 of us and we meet every 4-6 weeks. Some women have moved, but continue to come to the meetings- zoom meetings for now. It’s a wonderful way to know your neighbors and keep in touch with old neighbors and meet new ones. I treasure my book club.

As for knitting, I had to look up what a snood was. I knit winter headbands, hats, and blankets for my couch and to give to special friends. Also baby blankets.

What books do you read?

I live in Rochester New York. The snow has been flying. I also enjoy watching the birds that come to my suet bird feeders. We have lots of woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jays, and more.

Thanks again. Reenie

Yes, the Night Portrait” book was a page turner. Read it in three days. What books do you recommend? I bought a pompom maker. Made a bunch from leftover yarns. Fun. Don’t know what I’ll do with them. Maybe a funny necklace for my 97 year old cousin in the nursing home. As for knitting, I think I’ll make a lap blanket for the car. Where do you live?We will have snow until the end of April. They keep the streets clean, so it is easy to get around.

Won’t get my covid vaccine until the end of March. Still trying to get a closer time. I am 70 and have metastatic breast cancer, so I stay home and work from home.

Have a relaxing day.

Hi. I am 3/4 the way through A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson about the Appalachians. It's great, makes me want to do some part of it at some time. My previous book was The Whistler by John Grisham - unputdownable! he gets better with every book. I live in Norwich, Norfolk but our good snow didn't last long then it became ice. Had my jab yesterday it was fine, no problems, long queue though but chatted to a nice man next in line so that made the wait more bearable. To be honest, I don't mind this lockdown I have got so many things done and am enjoying reading my book stash and getting into my wool stash.

She has written over 30 books, I think, and there's always a type of mystery involved. An accomplished writer, she's especially talented and also does meticulous research. The majority of her books are page turners. I can hardly put them down. Read the synopsis carefully, so you know that you're choosing a book you'll really enjoy.

Have you heard of abesbooks.com? I love to build my library so I often order from abesbooks. You will find the majority of books ranging from $2.98 to maybe, not very often, $4.50. All the books I've ordered are in excellent condition even if the seller reports that the book is in fair condition.

Thank yo for the info.

My daughter works at our local library and she gets me A LOT of their mystery discards but I will Look up the author and the web site.

Thanks again.

Non in particular ,. Except I hate silly films.Back in the 1930's they seemed rather good at silly films, every other one.

1950 to 1960 some the comedy films are classics.

Do you like reading? When I have a stressful day/week, I get a book that I want to read and just sit on a couch/recliner and block out the rest of the world. The reading helps to relax and calm me down. Makes me forget what is bothering me. I also try to listen to music and talk to my friends. :-)

Go for walk with my camera

Where do you usually go for walks? :-) How far? :-)

Solitaire!🙄🙃😗

I am not much of a reader. I like watching YouTube videos on my phone. It keeps my mind occupied and sometimes if I watch funny things it will lift up my mood.

Nice!😀👍🌈

Trying to be the best I can be. It's 4:05am on Sunday morning and I'm totally wiped out. I don't take well to any change....at all. The author, Eric Hoffer, wrote four books...all jewels...one is titled "The Ordeal of Change". This little book describes so much, if not all of the feelings I'm experiencing.So very kind of you to ask if I'm OK!!!! So very appreciated.

You have my very best wishes to enjoy a relaxing, safe Sunday!!! I live in south Jersey...it's FREEZING!!!!!!!! Hope it's warmer where you live!!

Take good care of yourself!!
