October 22 – December 31, 2015, Apache Junction, AZ
We are settling into our new house and getting things organized the way we want them.
Rex is keeping busing with handyman work – the residents of Golden Sun, where we used to stay, are keeping him very busy. He also continues playing guitar with his friend, Gunther. They performed in a number of “coffee shops” at Golden Sun. He also played and sang again in the Valentine’s Day Program and the pizza party at Golden Sun.
We are continuing with Tai Chi classes at Golden Sun – Rex taught the class until our instructor, Gene, came in January. In December, Rex was asked to teach a Tai Chi class in Meridian Manor. So we go to our class at Golden Sun at 7 am and then to the class at Meridian Manor at 8 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Nancy is enjoying retirement again – water aerobics, tai chi, bocce ball, hiking and learning pickle ball. She enjoys the monthly women’s lunch and meeting more of our neighbors.
We enjoyed attending the Arizona Lecture Series again this year and hearing talks about Arizona – history, environment, animals, etc. We also enjoyed attending some of the musical entertainment provided by Meridian Manor.
We celebrated Christmas in our new house - Rex made our tree from driftwood collected on Vancouver Island. Cody and Camille thought the tree skirt was a new blanket for them! This is the first Christmas tree we have had since we sold the house in Colorado.
On Christmas Eve we took a full moon and sunset hike. The weather was beautiful and the scenery fantastic. We hiked to some rocks where we climbed to the top and could watch the beautiful sunset and then turn around and watch the moon rise – what a great way to spend Christmas Eve.
