Bake someone happy

My friend Emily Raymond, who is awesome, is putting together 100 care packages for homeless people in the Cambridge/Central Square area for Valentine's Day.  I'm going to bake chocolate chip cookies and bought a big bag of chocolate chips tonight at Costco.  #bakesomeonehappy #inevergetacart #ibuyonlywhaticancarry

It says SEEKING HUMAN KINDNESS.  I gave him a few dollars and wished him a good day.  #seekinghumankindness #iwanttogobackandtakehimtodinnerandtalktohim

The gym

I joined the YMCA a few weeks ago.  Then I bought work out pants.  Last week I went for the "get started" session.  #babysteps  I didn't have time to go home and change and I thought the trainer would be showing me around the place and telling me about the equipment.  She saw me and said, "you aren't dressed to work out?"  I told her I thought she'd be showing me around and she said, "that's a tour".  OK then.  Tonight I went back for my real "get started" session and it was great.  I am interested in doing weights so she showed me how all the machines work and I tried each of them out.  I think I'm going to like #workingoutatheY
