Football. Sweaters. Fires in the fireplace. A nice bowl of chili. A good book.
After the hectic activity of Spring and Summer, Fall offers an opportunity for respite, cocooning, and connecting over activities and events that occur indoors.
This first full week of October is Great Books Week, so it’s the perfect time to launch or rekindle (no pun intended!) your community Book Club, perhaps with one of these titles, written by and about Boomers:
We may not be sure how to dress for the weather each day: it’s chilly when we wake up, sweater-weather as we run errands, then downright sweltering after lunch.
But if there’s one thing we do know how to do well in Georgia, it’s celebrate Fall with flair!
It’s the month of Oktoberfest, with festivities across the state. And if you’d prefer to stay closer to home, check out these ghost tours and corn mazes!

You know you’re living your best life when you hear its World Gratitude Day (September 21) and you think, “Hmmm… I’m grateful to be living my best life in my dream home where I have some truly great neighbors.” And then – lo and behold – exactly one week later you hear its National Good Neighbor Day (September 28) and you think, “Cool! Those neighbors I was grateful for last week have a day to remind me just how good they are!”
Peak time for leaf-peeping in North Georgia is still a few weeks away, but with the first official day of Autumn on September 22 (and that hint of chill in the air we’ve enjoyed this past week), Fall Festivals are in full swing, providing a plethora of opportunities to enjoy time outdoors (and maybe a funnel cake!)
We never stop learning, never cease to find innovative ways to improve our health, our homes, our happiness. Since September is Self-Improvement Month, there’s no better time to take action on the habits that will help us become our best selves and enjoy our best lives.
A Windsong Original poem
Fresh-brewed coffee in a great big mug
Its scent envelops me like an aromatic hug
The sunrise through the windows gives my heart a tug
I have so many reasons to smile.

At our hearts, we are all visionaries – those who plan for their futures with a combination of imagination and wisdom acquired through a variety of life experiences.
But it’s hard to live the life you’ve envisioned when your eyesight is blurry. You’ve imagined your future, made wise decisions, bought the home of your dreams. But maybe it’s a little harder to read that novel for book club; it’s frustrating to travel, especially at night; or to see the stage at a concert or focus on the screen at a theater.
We use our eyes daily, so it’s no wonder they wear out a bit over time. But keeping regular appointments with your eyecare professional is essential to maintaining your visionary status throughout your lifetime.
Every generation has its share of trends. We’ve had trends in music, cars, fashion, movie themes. Even our palates seem to enjoy trends, with certain styles of restaurants, recipes, and diets coming into and out of vogue.
A trend is defined as a general direction in which something is developing or changing. Often, we see trends become classics (an item or experience judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality or most outstanding of its kind).
It stands to reason that some trends would become classics. (Coca-Cola® comes to mind. The original is now classic.)
In home-buying, trends are set by a variety of things, including entertainment, magazines, and “reality” television programs, to name a few. And many of these trends, in turn, have the staying power to become classics.
It’s hot. And then we seem to have a pop-up thunderstorm in the region every night. Welcome to August!
Thankfully, as we wind down the Dog Days of Summer, there’s relief in sight, in the form of the Perseid Meteor Showers (peak viewing is this weekend.
Watching stars is just one way to prepare for National Relaxation Day (August 15). And since embracing the Active Adult Lifestyle is sometimes harder than you think it will be, here are some more suggestions:
