Finally something I like that’s good for me too

Is there anything better than a brand new box of Crayola crayons? The big box with sharpener?

Have you seen the latest trend? Adult-themed coloring books.  Waste of time? I think not. It gives me something to do while watching Mom’s programs in the evening which is Turner Classic movies all the way. Nothing against classic movies and I’m sure learning a lot about and seeing a lot of old movies I’ve never seen before.  But I need something to do while I’m watching them.Since all my attempts to learn to knit have failed, this is perfect!  And coloring apparently has huge benefits, right up there with say yoga.  Cool!

And it’s low-cal, no mindless munching on chips or popcorn when your hands are busy! So, check out some of the new coloring books out there and go get yourself that brand new box of crayons (or colored pencils – the grown up crayons) and get coloring.

And you don’t have to stay in the lines – no ones watching!
