Hello. I’m Hazel. I’d just like to give you an example of a day in my life. This morning I woke up at 5:30. I worked around the house until seven and then I went for a walk for almost two hours. I didn’t intend for it to be that long, but it was an hour and 50 minutes actually. I came home, ate breakfast, got in the bathtub and got dressed to go to see the opera. Now, somebody may not realize this, but the opera from the Metropolitan Opera Company is streamed live in the AMC theaters all around the country and it’s just like being at the Met except it’s even better as far as I’m concerned, because you can see what’s going on behind the scenes as there’s changing scenes and they bring the stars out and interview them. The conductor of the orchestra, the singers, the head leading roles and all kinds of other things.
One of the things today was taking us down to the catacombs, they called it, to the costume area and all of the people who had sung this part, the name of the opera was Aida by Verdi and Verdi’s operas are usually about four hours long, and it has been filmed many times and shown many times at the Met. Since 1908, I think she started, and various different divas have sung the role, and they talked about that, all of which was very educational.
I didn’t get out of there until 3:00 and I had been invited to a 60 year wedding anniversary party from two to four, so I rushed quickly over there to that and a bunch of people were leaving just as I got there. I thought oh, it’s almost over. It was a little after three when I got there, but I got inside and there were more people than I have ever seen in that room before. It was a den of people. I saw people I haven’t seen in years and years and many people that I didn’t even know, but remembered me because you know, young people remember older people. They remember how they look. So it was really like a homecoming party. It was great.
I got home from that a little after four and I have been working around the house since then, opening my mail and going out to my garden. When it starts getting cool, you have to pull your rhubarb, because it just goes limp on the cool days. So I pulled all the rhubarb and cut the green leaves off and I brought it in and now I’m getting ready to make something with it or put it in the freezer. I have quite a bit. So that’s my day so far. And it is now 5:30 and I’m not finished. I’ll be doing all kinds of other things until nine or 9:30.
That’s a sample of my day.
So if you want to say like, “I’m Hazel, if you’d like to talk to me about how I stay so active and how I’m able to do all these things, contact me, visit my website now.”
Should I say that now?
If you’d like to find out how I have enough energy to do all of this, I’d love to tell you about it, because I take whole food nutrition and that is the thing that keeps me going. I’m 88 years old. I take no medication, everything works and nothing hurts. And I decided I’d rather eat my vegetables than to become one. I have absolutely no aches and pains and my days start usually 5:30, six, somewhere around there. And I go until 9:00 at night and sleep all night. If you’d like to know more about that, give me a call at (720) 810-6161.
