This year, I decided to be more active, both physically and socially. Despite the fact it's Winter, I'm, going to start walking more (even if it's in the hallway of my apt.). I plan to make sitting here on this computer more productive, by blogging more. That means I have to have something to say, right?
Well, let me start by saying this while I'm currently in somewhat decent health, I need to take advantage of it.
I'm finally on the home dialysis machine, and although it takes a lot of my evening and night time, it leaves me free during the day. And I do feel better.
This is the time I do most of my crocheting, and I'd like to first finish some of the projects started (yeah, everybody says that, right!)
I have a young Home Health Aide that's now coming 5 days (instead of 3) a week, to do some minor things around the apt. for 2hours in the afternoon. There really isn't that much for her to do. but she keeps me company, while it provides her with a stress free part time job. She's really a sweet girl, a native of Haiti, who's currently taking online classes for Nursing. When she's not listening to me talking her ear off, she spends a lot of time on her smartphone (well, she's 22 after all, OK!).
What I'd like to do meeting with other older Black Men Who Crochet here in Philly,. No, I don't mean we all get together in a group (we guys don't do that!). Just knowing a few guys, and maybe talk on the phone, meet at the yarn shops, or chat online, just shoot the breeze, with a crochet twist.
In my entire crochet career, I've only met 1 older Black Male Crocheter, and he likewise. He was at a Senior Center. We looked forward to seeing each other each week, until he passed away, leaving me with all his knit and crochet accessories. He knew I would put them to good use. ;-)
I know you guys are out there!!
I'd like to talk and share my thoughts and ideas with another 'Brother(s). from 'our' perspective.
Hope to hear from someone soon.
YO! DON'T LEAVE ME HANGIN', BRO!
