Games to play someday

It's been two days of feeling pretty yucky here, and the weather is not cooperating at all !, Lots of cool, grey humid days have made for a bumper crop of mushrooms on the lawns and mold spores in the air. Damp weather is heck on my arthritis, so any exercise this week has been done in a very half hearted fashion.

Meanwhile, we have been enjoying green monster smoothies for our afternoon snacks, and I have been being productive puttering around the house and creating materials for next years homeschool. It is really nice to be able to do this at my own pace, making leisurly decisions about the year to come.Son has been watching coverage of E3- sort of the Superbowl of electronic games. Many new products have been announced, ad a few have found their way to my wish list. One is Wii Shape- a combination of the Wii motion fitness games with the Playstation Eyetoy for a mote total movement game. It sets up a routine for you, makes fitness assessments and more. Another is Personal Trainer Walking for the Nintendo DS . It seems to me that the electronic game industry has gotten pretty intelegent in the last couple of years. Sometime next year they will release Wii Vitality Sensor -sort of a very handy biofeedback tool for relaxation. I am really curious to see what games they come up with for this !

Hopefully the affects of the mold will pass through me by tomorrow , and it will be a more active kind of day.
