Getting active again

Until my foot problem, I was doing lots of things. My foot put a big crimp in all of my activities. Within the last few days however, I've begun resuming being active again.

I plan to play golf with friends. Also, I take golf lessons with a group from the local junior college at a nearby driving range. I have a good friend who has a golf simulator in his garage and I play simulated golf on his system about once each week. His simulator has golf courses from all over the United States in memory.

On my apartment patio, I am growing a bunch of flowering plants. They are all in bloom now. 

I've got a big tub on the balcony which is serving as a pond. There are several pond plants growing now. One of them is a flowering lily. No flowers yet from this lily, but several new leaves have sprouted! I have hopes for flowers from this lily plant.

I do nearly all of my shopping by driving on my electric bike to the market. I use a backpack to carry what I buy back to the apartment. Since I am not able to carry too much in that backpack, I go shopping nearly every day.

I workout at the YMCA about three times each week. Very important for me to exercise, since I have been diagnosed with osteoporosis. I am taking a lot of vitamins which is supposed to curb osteoporosis. Vitamin D3 and calcium in very large doses.

I am also beginning to do activities at a senior citizen center which is close to my apartment.
