Friday Koffee Klatch
 
    
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.

Do you have any hobbies?

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

yes i write poetry and it keeps me busy sending out my work through the internet. i also play scrabble and enjoy games of different types. i also love to swim. used to love to "go for a drive" but can't afford that now. do still do a lot of local theater as a patron and absolutely love visual art. love music too and old movies plus i love to read. sometimes i enjoy embroidery and love to cook and bake bread and make special dishes for friends. like to send notes out in the snail mail too o and talking on the phone, of course.

Yes, I handcraft tile coasters using rubber stamps/felts/chalk/paint/paper - just a whole lot of different stuff. I am starting up my own online business to sell them, and my husband is making soap, so we'll sell that too.

I am starting to learn how to make jewelry as well as learning decorative painting. I don't have a lot of energy though, so my production levels are hit and miss. It's all fun though and that's what matters the most - it's an escape from the pain.

hugs,
