      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Summer's over - now what?

3 posts in this topic

Ok, summer is over for many of us, and w/ it swimming (outdoors), boating, etc. So what do you do for fun (and maybe exercise) now? Head for a indoor swimming pool? Spend more time walking/hiking and enjoying fall foliage? Turning more of your attention to hobbies you can enjoy indoors, such as knitting, painting, etc? Or ??

Sep/Oct is our finest weather of the year here by the Bay...that said, my sub job end today (I hope!) so next week I should be back home all day getting back to my purging & cleaning...so very much purging & cleaning...

When I take the time, I swim/run at an indoor pool. My neighborhood is flat, so I should walk. 

I've already started making Christmas presents...I'm crocheting "mermaids" for the 3 grandgirlies...cocoon style afghans with a tail fin. 3 different yarns, some variety of pink/purple.

Our summer is only getting started now and it’s pretty hot so I get up early to water everything and slap on heaps of suntan lotion plus a hat even then. After that I try my best to stay indoors. It’s just too hot to do anything outside.
