Walk, puzzles, painting and baking

To keep myself busy & have a positive attitude I go for walks on Main Street on my days off from work. I am big into puzzles so I spend a majority of my time listening to music and doing puzzles.

Recently I just started painting wine bottles; surprisingly I still don’t drink! I also am painting rocks and scattering them around town. The other night I baked chocolate chocolate chip muffins, red velvet cupcakes, cookies (in the shape of hedgehogs) and made some brownies. I’m not a baker so I had to be supervised! Everything came out really good. Since I don’t eat what I bake, I had my neighbors test out the goodies!

Don’t worry, I left them on the doorsteps and made sure I was 6 feet away. I like to put smiles on people’s faces, even more now than usual!
