I've begun my days with whining and laughing children, a mad dash to my workplace, cramming last minute for an exam or presentation, furious exercise, and numerous other endeavors both fun and sexy, seemingly critical at the time. But NOW...retired and with the luxury of doing pretty much as I please, most of my days begin as I choose.
Days beginning with partnership activities still occur, whether fixing breakfast, bag lunches, conversation and other stuff...:)...but most mornings begin singularly for me. I'm still up early...still choose to feed and water the dogs as soon as my feet hit the floor. Coffee is on before I have my eyes completely open...and then it happens. I think...what next? Oh my gosh...what luxury! Shall I paint a little...photograph the beautiful snowfall, work on images already taken that need some 'Photoshop' magic, swim a few laps at the local community center, EAT OUT...my all-time favorite meal to venture out for...and the list goes on. This morning is no exception. (Next week starts my online classes so I have a little more required structure to my life then) but for this morning...it's my choice! And I choose to...
Blog...really? Is that what I wanted to do this morning? Yes! Why? Who cares? I've started another wonderful day of retirement (I know, am I really retired when I'm teaching online part-time?) YES! I'm still doing something of my choosing...something I love to do, with the luxury of not doing it tomorrow if that's my choice. You can't beat that, right?
Retirement years...are they really golden? They have been for me...
