MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Is That Your Daughter?

Karly and I went shopping in Hamilton yesterday. Had a great time and she’s definitely a shopper. She knows her style and what she likes and looks good on her. I felt like a “wee granny”, however, walking beside her, she’s getting so tall. Plus I had a great complement from a clerk when she said “your daughter”. How cool was that!!! Stupid me, however, had to correct her – duh!!!

Nat was left at home, alone without a vehicle. He said he wasn’t too bored, as he had intended to take it easy that day. He had a golf game this past Monday and as it was pretty hot out there, he came home really exhausted, so I think he was getting caught up on just relaxing. Then he was out golfing again this afternoon, so I guess he’s back in the groove. Plus he’s playing in a tournament this Saturday!!

Managed to get some blueberry muffins baked this morning. Gave some to Darby, as she lost one of hers from Harvest Barn!!! Thinking she’s got a “Muffin Muncher” hiding in the house??? She’ll be thinking mine are kind of psychodelic, as the blueberries tend to bleed when I blend them in as carefully as I can. Going to have to research that one. Anyway, hope she enjoys them – there’s always more if she wants. I’m always giving cookies to the little ones, but sometimes the bigger “kids” miss out.

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
