What to do? What to do!?
I retired a couple of years ago and it’s exhausting! There are so many things to do with your free time! I’m a genuine homebody. I’d rather be at home than anywhere else. Which is good, because I’ve always worked from home. But now … yikes!
I like to sew … a lot! It’s just fun and I end up with things to give as gifts. I have one whole corner of my den devoted to the “sewing area” and it can go from neat-as-a-pin to oh-my-goodnes-what-happened-here? in under three minutes.
I like to knit, crochet, paint, and do anything with a hot glue gun. I’m a DIY fanatic and can’t watch enough YouTube videos on new ways to deploy a wire coat hanger or an empty plastic bottle. Those don’t all work, by the way.
I love to bake! I have to control that one, though. I don’t need to get any rounder. But what fun! And with three grandchildren, if I time it right, I can bake a batch of goodies and pass them along for consumption. They’re gone in under three minutes!
I love being retired. Spending my days doing just what I want when I want. But sometimes I long for the days when all I had to do was work for eight hours.
‘Bye! I have to go sew something.
