I missed my Saturday posting...and it's...what?  Wednesday?   Ah, the joys of retirement.  
I didn't promise to remember EXACTLY when it was Saturday.  
I guess I took RELAX a bit too seriously.

Makes me smile.

Five Things I Fantasized About Doing

These are things I once thought it might be fun to do. 
Once upon a time.  Maybe.
1. Renovate an old Victorian/Craftsman/schoolhouse/church/loft/warehouse for a living space.   Lots of space.
2. Live in a foreign country.  Work there. 
3. Go on a year long road trip around the US.
4. Write a novel with everyone who bugged me in my life being the evil ones.  And they would know exactly who they are.
5. Be a stay at home mom with lots of kids.  On a big piece of land on the coast.

My Favorite Passenger

He is my best and most favorite passenger.
Bar none.   A  great travelling buddy who loves it when Grammie sings.   Not with a CD.  Just me.

Where to Go From Here?

With so many media outlets to choose from
my question is...where do I put my efforts?
This topic has been discussed by others.
I am in the process of becoming more minimalist.  Even  in the art room.   Sorta'.
I have decided to post weekly to start.  I really mean it.  Every Saturday without fail.  If I remember what day is Saturday.

Beach Art and Some Numbers

Found some beach art as I contemplated numbers this morning:
62 is a fun age.
1 year officially retired today after 35 classroom years.
A 2 year old boy and his 32 year old dad who make me glad I retired.
40 years in the same house with the same phone number.
6 months into my yoga practice.
27 years as a long time married companion and stepmom.
And 1 more day of grace and blessings to enjoy!!!
