June 27th

Day 179 — Day one of the holidays — and it was lovely.  Got up went for a nice long walk along a different path.  Not the usual 30 minute circuit Heather and I usually navigate when I’m working.  The air was warm, even though we’d had a helluva storm last night.  Lots of thunder and lightning, and, of course, rain.  But, other than a couple of slight showers that was supposed to be the end of the 40 days and 40 nights we’ve been enduring.

I did a lot of little things today — made pineapple marmalade, tidied the house, took care of small chores I’ve been putting off since forever.  I even found time to read my book outside on the deck a couple of times.  (In case you hadn’t figured it out, my deck is my favorite place to be in the summer time.)

For dinner I made crab cakes and salad with asparagus on the side.  Of course, I ate it outside.  Then I finished off a nice little glass of white zinfandel and read a few more pages of my book before going back out into the garden.

I love not working!

    I love the freedom of not working – for the first time since I was 12! 😀 Sounds like a sob story…I loved working part-time when I was a kid! And I enjoyed my career a lot. However, much to my surprise, I love retirement because everything I do (and I’m busy) I LOVE doing.

    That’s freedom.

      I fantasize all the time about being in a position to ‘retire’ early. Sadly, the lottery gods and money angels haven’t seen fit to visit me yet! One of these days though. . .
