Just under the wire

Early last autumn I commenced making something that really had no major timeline (in the foreseeable future at that time) but had been a concept in my head for about 3 years.

I’d work a way a bit and then set it aside. Then one day it all went to hell in a Continue reading

Canada Day 151

Construction season leaves little time for blogging or Canada Day and we didn’t really get a rain delay like I’d hoped. After yesterday’s marathon 14 hours we could have used a break. So, armed with new work gloves, a jacket and a swig of Continue reading

32 weeks

The title makes it sound like I’ve started a pregnancy blog. Heaven forbid at my age! I’m counting down rather than up so it’s an update on my retirement calendar. Although it may actually be 34 weeks and not 32 but more info is required before the initial decision maybe be changed.

Here is the two part why. Ron believes he read somewhere that the best date is the end of your birthday month. On my list of things to do in June is contact the retirement section of human resources and get the low down. The other aspect of the date is that a certain someone in my life will be in Vegas at the King Memorial Soccer tournament. Bad luck that the Friday after my 60th birthday happens to be that weekend. SO if I want my man around for my ultimate TGIF I may have to delay it a week. So then what is two weeks.

I did learn a few things this last two weeks that I have been on holidays. In no particular order and because I love lists.

  • I will miss the people but I won’t miss the grind of daily work or getting lunches organized and up on time.
  • I will be busy; my days won’t be boring or empty of things to do
  • I will need some structure so I don’t fritter away time
  • I will need to establish a sleep/wake up routine so I don’t become a total night owl
  • I need at least 2 days per week where I don’t run to the city.

The things I’m so looking forward to, like gran time and creative time, will be done without sacrificing other things. I’m hoping for more friend time and more me time.

The pictures of this post have no bearing on the words. Just some shots that filled my heart with joy today so felt like sharing them.

Thanks for stopping in to read. It’s always nice to connect.

The Lost Saga

There seems to be a pattern here that’s been established over the years. That’s reassuring because it helps me know it’s not senility setting in just a brain on overload. It always seems worse or is it just more obvious at Continue reading
