Paul Neyron rose 2

Friday so far

I was on the computer until midnight, chatting with J.-PA.  That was bad.  I stayed up until around 1:30 a.m., reading well into folder 5 of the Affinity!Verse.  I got up at 11:00 a.m., when I should have gotten up at 10:00 a.m.

I looked at the Free Fridays Nook Book.  It was a thriller with an assassin.  It sounded too gory for my tastes.  I got some of the books listed as free in the comments.  Jules recommended a series offered on BookBub, but I hadn't gotten that e-mail yet.

Slightly later: I got the e-mail.  I got a couple of the free books.

Tonight is the Friday Night Friends group.  It's a night in.  We'll be making pizza and exploring classes at the Y.

Later: Friday Night Friends was fun.  It started out with "Spin Cycle," which was a stationary bicycle class.  I have "runner's knee" -- patella something, in which my kneecap's a little out of joint, in my left knee, and arthritis in my right knee.  I lasted a minute or so.  Most of the women in the group quickly switched to sitting on exercise balls and exercising that way.  Then we went to the gym and threw a large cloth(?) Frisbee kind of thing around.  I can't catch things, and didn't want to go out into the main area of the gym where several boys were playing basketball, because I don't duck well, either.  We switched to the usual big room where we do activities, and T., the volunteer, helped us make little pizzas from English muffins.  We colored eggs.  T. had filled plastic eggs with various small objects and written up a quiz with little hints.  I would have been a ringer, so I sat it out.  T. did a ticket drawing for who would win a bunny with a T-shirt and snacks inside.  I won, but said to let someone else have a try.  They drew YMCA-J.'s ticket.  He was happy.  I know it sounds like they weren't fun activities for me, but it was nice socializing with everyone.

Later still: I chatted with Codeman for a bit.
