    Serenity - Peace - Tranquility

    Tranquility of nature is good for the wellbeing of your mind ...
    Allowing yourself to listen the sounds and silence of nature you can increase the positive effects of nature on you.
    People often say that it is silent (we mean totally silent) in nature. If you really are in nature there aren`t many sounds. However seldom there is a total silence in nature;

 WELCOME TO THE MONTH OF AUGUST ~

August is another transition month - it is seen as the last month of summer up north but of course in Orange Acres and Sarasota Florida, our summer continues for several more months. Remember when we were children or were raising children - August was the month that meant getting ready to go back to school, going shopping for school clothes and school supplies and trying to squeeze in the last summer activities before the first day of school. Of course some of the Moms were secretly smiling because they were looking forward to some quiet time! Well now we are retired and August is just another great month to enjoy.

jpegThe Orange Acres activities are still a little sparce, but we do have our final pancake breakfast before January on Tuesday, August 2 hosted by Audrey Young and the Flippers and our Pizza Party on Thursday, August 4 hosted by Jane Finley and Mary Lou Lira.

The Billiards group is picking up on Mondays at 1:00 p.m. in the Orange Acres "pool hall" and we also have Sequence on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. There is Bridge every Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. in the Library and Mixed Cards every Thursday at 1:00 p.m. also in the Library. And of course we have our Tuesday coffee meeting every Tuesday.

Thank you to my favorite brother Ed Marian for the beautiful photos.

Enjoy the month of August - remember to smile and just be nice - it costs nothing ~
