I Think I Need a Posse

I have been lazy this week. No exercising, sleeping in. I come home tired, so I grab some dinner and spend a quiet evening with my book. I am content, but part of me wonders if I am becoming a shut-in.

I have July 4th plans with my bestie and her hubby. I have been out of town for the past two weekends. It is not like I am not living life, but I also know that the best way to make new friends is to go out and do things.

Granted the weather is soggy, so golf is on hold between weather and travel. I am not enamored with large MeetUp groups. They feel like too much work. I prefer smaller gatherings.

I need to push myself a bit. There is a book club coming up in two weeks, so I will try that. They limit the number of attendees to about 12-15. That’s my max.

I could take an exercise class of some form to at least meet some folks. Maybe there is a regular class I could take to challenge my brain. Hmmm. I don’t want to do much because I’m lazy these days. Perhaps here is some volunteer activity I can do. My mentoring is on hiatus for the summer. Once my mentee graduates next year, I think I will take a break. My Toastmasters group will soon be back to in-person, so I won’t be able to join them due to the distance.

All I need is 2-3 folks for my local posse. Surely I can meet a couple of like-minded people who want to hang out occasionally. Let me ponder this. Any ideas?

My kind of people – LOL

  1. Hmmm. It’s hard to meet people as you get older. The people I hang with locally are all friends for at least 25 years. My newish friends are the people from tea society and I see them either for tea tastings or book club, but I only see them then. My book club meets monthly but I only socialize with them once a month. I have a movie friend that I see movies with weekly. My book club and movie friend live in my building and we met because of shared interests.

    1. So true – I made friends thru my kids and their activities. I have my Toastmaster group but they are 70 miles away. My bestie who got me my job is a great friend. I still have a distant cousin who I am trying to connect with. Who knows, maybe some church? I’m not religious, but the right congregation might provide the social activities I am looking for.
