2019 Life Logs, Day 156: Newcomers Dining-in Group June Dinner
Date: Wednesday, June 5, 2019
Weather: Mostly Cloudy; High 69, Low 64 degrees
Location: At Home in the Cottage, East Falmouth, MA
Tonight, my Newcomers Dining-in group had our June gathering at Peter and Karen Baranowski’s home. It was a fantastic dinner, but the greatest thing about these ‘almost’ monthly gatherings is that we are together, sharing ideas and supporting one another. Olivia White brought me a copy of the 2019-2020 Chamber of Commerce Falmouth Official Guide as it as a photo from a Camp Oma activity last summer. I took the Goldpebbles to the Falmouth Museums on the Green activity where the boys got to play games from colonial America. A small photo of Sam rolling a wooden hoop with me looking on is on the page sponsored by the Museums in the Official Guide. Thank you, Olivia, for pointing this out to me and bringing me a copy of the guide. Otherwise, I might not have ever seen it. It is this kind of thing those of us in this dining-in group do for each other and I feel blessed to be part of it. One couple in the group had a death in their immediate family just a few days ago, but they came tonight because I think they feel like me. It feels good to be surrounded by friends that you know you can depend on, especially in times of need.
I spent almost three hours of my morning organizing the 12 pages of usernames and passwords that have accumulated over the years. Mark always kept track of this list, and I have been meaning to do a reorganization ever since his death in 2016. I have worked on it a couple of times and even after the three hours this morning, I still have work to do. But I made progress and that is a good thing. Probably half of those passwords will never be used again, but somehow, I feel like I should keep them on the list . . . just in case. Then I headed to the gym to get in my 30 minutes on the stationary bike. I made a stop at the grocery store, came home and had a late lunch, and then spent some time in the kitchen. I had hoped to spend time gardening, but that didn’t get done. It is supposed to rain tomorrow, but I’m still hoping to get a few things planted. I guess it will depend on just how hard it rains.
