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.
Picture above from a mural outside a new store I visited recently and thought most appropriate.

Tax Day

Heading up the coast to get taxes done.
On a Thursday morning.  
Love the retired time frame for life's chores.

Working on "Less Is More"

Have you seen these around?
They are an easy way to recycle old clothing and shoes.
No appointment necessary.   Your schedule.

New computer.   Seems to be working.
Not a techno person but willing to try and learn.

Hearts of Stone

I don't have a heart of stone...
but I do like finding  stone hearts!
 At the beach in Ventura, of course.
This is a small sampling of my collection.

Thursday Thoughts on 2013 Theme

This year's theme for me is...."Less Is More".

Less stuff for sure... by less shopping in general.

Cleaning and decluttering. 

Letting go.   Thoughtful gift giving.

Perfect for this time in my life.

Colorful Ventura Houses

And there are more.
For another day. 
Retirement is fun.   Get there ASAP!

Fun Friday Art

It's been ever so long since I've done my art...
but 7 months of decompression and rest 
has finally opened me up once again. 

See progression above.

Wednesday Wanderings

Found this birdie down by the beach in my morning meanderings.

"Do I want to TRAVEL?"  I am often asked. usually my answer...many places...someday...

but I live in Ventura and am often able to find the exotic and interesting right here !!!

Monday Musings on Grammiehood

He can't say my name...but knows "G" is for Grammie.

He squeals when coming up the hill to the house.

He follows me around and throws himself at my kneecaps.

How can I not be totally smitten?

HAPPY 2013!!!

This coming year isn't about a theme word as in years past.
Or the prefix "RE" from 2012.
It's more about an attitude.
Less stuff...less hassle...less stress.
More Owen...more friends...more art.
