Signs of My Times…

My times these days are filled with a variety of activities that I will share with the following signs.

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I show up at the Northshore Senior Center at 9:30 and exercise away with some great seniors who are determined to keep moving. This is something new that I just started in September and it really has been good for me. One of the gentlemen that comes to the class is 93!

I’ve been trying to use the library more and buying less books and DVD’s for our viewing and reading pleasure. This is my library of choice and just today I picked up a Doc Martin DVD to enjoy.

Our church that we’ve been attending for about 3 years now just changed it’s name to Northshore Community Church instead of Northshore Baptist Church. It was a good time for the change since one of the goals of our church is to support and help our community.

I shop at a variety of stores like Costco, Fred Meyer and a local fruit market but Safeway is probably the most convenient place for me to shop and I’m here at least once a week.

I am very proud of our son-in-law and his service in the Marines but this sign on my car also works real well in helping me find my car in a big parking lot with lots of cars that look just like mine.

On this past Monday night we were at the Sounders soccer game against F.C. Dallas and I’m happy to report we are moving on in the playoffs and have two more games in November against L.A. Galaxy. We were all given these signs to hold up after the National Anthem. Fun times.

One of my favorite things at our Sounder games is the singing of our National Anthem. Our Seattle crowd really belts it out and we have a great military branch presence that holds the flag while we sing.

Hope you didn’t get bored seeing the signs of my times. In the future I might post some more that involve my history.

We are experiencing a cold snap here in the Pacific Northwest and today I talked with our son and he had snow at his place in Eastern Washington. The leaves continue to fall and I continue to rake. Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

I’m linking up with signs, signs hosted by Lesley!

  1. What a neat post, Ellen! I wonder what the signs of MY times would look like and what story they would tell? This was neat to read!!!

    Stay warm! We have that same blustery cold going on here!

  2. It’s even cold in Arkansas this week. You are a busy lady, and I am ashamed to say that your Sr Center exercise group is probably a lot more active than me. What a great idea to have an exercise group at a Sr Center. laurie

  3. Lots of nice signs! It’s good to keep active and busy at any age. I have always loved my local library, but the ones here in Germany don’t have such a good supply of English books.

  4. I like the signs you chose for this post, Ellen, because I think they let us know about some things that are very important to you in your life. Your church, your son-in-law’s military service, your local library, etc. I think this would be a great thing for all of us to do; it makes us think about the things we participate in on a regular basis and what matters to us.

    Great post, Ellen! I hope you’re having a nice weekend and staying warm. 🙂

    Big hugs,
