With the snow melting away and the sun beginning to peak back out from behind the clouds, spring is officially arriving in Michigan. And with the long-awaited warmer weather comes the opportunity to spend more time to take part in your favorite out- door activities, whether that is garden- ing, traveling, or whatever else you have in mind.
stool or chair to help lighten the load on your back and knees. Another option is to consider building vertical gardens or trellis beds so you can gar- den from a chair or even while stand- ing up. Be sure to also use longer tools that can help give you a better grip and more leverage without bending over. And of course, wear lightweight cloth- ing, gloves, sunscreen, and even a hat to protect you from the sun.

If you find yourself hitting the road this spring, it’s crucial to remember the importance of proper car care to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. Before any trip, remember to check and change your oil if necessary, make sure all of your lights are functioning properly and keep an eye on your car’s tire pressure. The last thing you want is to be stuck on the side of the highway, and doing all of this can help make sure that doesn’t happen.
If you have thoughts on how Michigan can better support our active seniors during the spring, I hope that you will reach out to me.

Seems like we just celebrated Christmas and here we are already thinking about Easter. Which also makes me think about dishes to serve at Easter brunch. The following break- fast casserole makes a great prep ahead Saturday morning meal at home too.
• 1 pound maple ground sausage • 1⁄2 medium onion, diced
• 1 teaspoon each Soy and
Brown sausage and onion in frying pan, drain, return to pan, and season with soy and Worcestershire sauces, and salt and pepper; set aside. Lightly grease a 13” by 9” casserole dish and spread the croutons on the bottom. Sprinkle with drained sausage. In large bowl, whisk together eggs and remain- ing ingredients. Pour over croutons and sausage, cover with foil, and refrigerate overnight. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 325 degrees, bake covered for 35 minutes, remove foil and continue to bake another 15-20 minutes or until golden on top. Serves 6-8 people.

If you’re staying closer to home, spending time in the garden can be a relaxing, even therapeutic, experience. But as we get older, some of the more strenuous tasks can become more tax- ing on the body. To avoid the constant stooping and squatting, try using a
