Just joined

Retired last year at age 70 due to covid; did not want to take a chance of catching covid so I retired. Last year was fun - shopping during senior hours, buying covid protective products and buying supplies to construct a raised garden that resulted in a few edibles. I enjoyed on line shopping from Amazon, Walmart, Macy's, Home Depot, and Publix. I still have items I purchased that I have not yet used but plan to do so very soon. Although I have had my covid shots, I continue to practice safety when I go out usually 2 times a week. I wear my gloves, mask, and face shield. I take my face mask with me when I go for my 2 mile outdoor walk. I have added to my indoor exercise equipment and will engage my exercise equipment at least 3 times a week. While gardening, exercising, reading, and baking are fun, human conversation and interaction is a basic need for staying grounded and mentally fit. Thus my reason for joining. I have a lot of time on my hands and will probably seek a stay a home job just to keep busy.
