A Grateful Season     
Posted on Oct 2nd, 2022
     In astronomical terms, we have passed the mid-point between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox, also known as a cross-quarter day. Although we hope to have some warm days ahead, the sun is ever-so-slightly beginning to distance itself from our hemisphere and fall lower in the sky. Apropos, our Four Seasons at Elm Tree residents are rethinking their activities, such as trading the saltwater pool’s water aerobics for indoor exercising and yoga sessions together or in the Workout Room. Our grandchildren are back to school, so we have more time for each other now, although there may be the seasonal soccer games and sports’ activities to enjoy!
     Our many committees’ volunteers continue to exert themselves to lighten our worries and lessen any load of household and property concerns we may have had before moving here. We try to be involved and updated through HOA meetings and newsletter or email information. Meaningful communication is the aim and result of our leadership. Life in this over-55 community has given us permission to relax more and worry less!
     Being near such extensive countryside, we take advantage of harvested produce now, perhaps freezing or canning corn and tomato sauce for healthy winter meals. The ovens will warm our homes once again! Meanwhile, we might plant chrysanthemums, dry herbs, paint or make repairs before seasons change. So much is done for us here, we have more time to enjoy our own hobbies and pleasures! As Goethe wrote, one ought, every day, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if possible, to speak a few kind words.
