Retired and Bored

After working behind a desk for 33 years, I retired!

That will be one year ago this October 1st. I sure do like not having to get out of bed early and going to work everyday. But, during this past year, I have become reacquainted with boredom. Boredom is that well known companion of our childhood and teen years. I have piddled around th
e house, doing this and that - the necessary cleaning, cooking, working puzzles, a little crafting, a lot of the HGTV channel, day dreaming, occasional day of fishing, seasonal yard sells, and watching the birds at the feeders. I also have an occasional uninvited visiter - depression. Unwanted visitors are hard to get rid of. My "little" sister (compared to me she really is little) who has never worked since she has been married, is always busy doing just all kinds of things. I think she is trying to help me get rid of my unwanted companion and visitor. She has her own blog and has introduced me to blogging. With her insistance and encouragement, I thought, why not give it a try? So, this is the beginning. Hopefully, it will become improved over time.

My retirement cake.
And they had it decorated
in fall colors!

How nice!

Hi Sis,

I bet that retirement cake was good. Keep up the good writing. And you're right, I am always busy doing something. Too busy sometimes, but I guess it keeps me out of trouble.
See ya!
