The Senior Center Saga Continues....

 We had a red sky this morning....

 but no storm warning.

 I squeezed in a short bike ride before class.

 Progress all around.

15 minutes after everyone left, my neighbor Bob S. arrived and we headed for the Chili Senior Center.  Met 4 others there.

 Loved the entrance.  Some of the seniors who go to Florida for the winter leave their plants here.

Below on the left, is Mary Ann Sears, the center director and human dynamo.  Next to her is Jean B., one of our committee members and an ex Town Supervisor for the Town of Sweden.

 We were given a tour and had a chance for some conversation.
 Picked up so many great ideas.
 Panara Bread donates to the center on every Friday.
 The kitchen was spotless.
 How's that for a big trip?
This was a very worthwhile trip.
Took a breather when I got home, then wrote a letter to the editor regarding our public meeting.

Chicken soup...
 and a Saint Tim favorite salad.  Spinach, grapes, apples, craisins and a little extra sharp cheddar cheese.  I can see him drooling now!
 Chores at 7.  It was almost dark.

Tucked in the girls and am watching "The Voice."  A local girl (Rochester) is supposed to be performing.  She and her local band did a photo shoot at the farm for a CD cover and Abbe was in the pictures.  Can't wait to see Amanda.
Night all.


  1. Wish I would have seen this post before the Voice. I would have paid more attention to Amanda. Was she chosen? (I did miss the first hour and 40 minutes.... we caught the last 20 minutes. No tivo and lots of kids' activities). The red sunrise is beautiful and I am so jealous of your green grass. All white at my house. In town it all melted, but here in the hills it is chilly enough to stick.

  2. Love the red sky shots. And love the photo of the colored pencil crayons. The Senior Center looks beautiful. We've just become involved with the retirement center in our SA home town. Grant's 85 yo mum has been in a flat for the past month while the builders complete a unit for her. Have a great day. Jo
