Yesterday nearly reached 60 degrees and it was such a reprieve from the long harsh winter. Unfortunately living this far north, and we don't even live in The County (I can't imagine), we are expecting s n o w this weekend. Yep, you read that correctly...snow. I am going to take it as a sign to sit back and take it slow, taking a sign from Mother Nature as Spring is taking her time getting here.
I don't talk much about work on my blog but it has been a stressful few weeks; although I have had some serious ups in between my downs; one of which I can talk about. I have had the great opportunity to speak at several community groups over the past year, on the prevention of elder financial exploitation. This week I spoke to a Rotary Club and I am tickled that one of the members has asked me to speak to one of his senior groups. He said that usually there are about sixty seniors that come to their monthly meeting. This will be three times the size of groups I have presented to and it will be seniors themselves, not just community leaders and advocates. This does make me happy as this is a subject I am very passionate about and feel fortunate that I work with a team of co-workers that are diligent in this fight as well. It is unfortunate that we see too many of these types of cases, but we are persistent in the fight by providing education and awareness to preventing and identifying financial exploitation. There Is No Excuse For Elder Abuse!
Oh and one more UP for the week...
a group of us from work went to a Paint and Sip.
This was my first time, some of the others have been to a couple.
I really enjoyed it and everyone did a great job!
I have been rotating my hand work and have made progress on all three of my projects;
And my granny squares are stacking up.
Wishing everyone a splendid Spring and a Happy Easter.
