The White Cottage

MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Oh, But It’s So Beautiful

Nat and I woke up this morning, along with millions of others, to a huge white winterland outside. Our roadways had been well plowed already, so Nat headed out to do his second round of the driveway. He also took time to clear off the back patio (once he was able to get to it through snow up to his knees). The snow had drifted and built up so much against the patio doors that we would have struggled to get out in an emergency, plus we were worried once it started to melt and where the excess moisture might seep to. We also had a huge build-up around the satellite dish and he took the time to knock that down. We have enough trouble with satellite signals during storms, we didn’t need the dish being plugged up!!

I took advantage of the “snow-bound” day by doing the last of the laundry and a real good house cleaning. Felt good to get that major chore done and now I’ve got the rest of the week to do what I want.

Near the end of the afternoon we settled in and watched the last of a golf tournament we had picked up on Saturday afternoon. Nat’s now anxious to get out on the practice range and get loosened up for his golf games that start in four weeks. He’s so ready to get out on the golf course, it’s not funny!!!!

We’ll try and escape the house on Monday. We’ve been house bound for almost three days now and even I’m chomping at the bit to get out. I’ve been sitting around so much that my lower back is getting kinky and that’s not a good thing!!! Like Nat with his golf, I’m now anxious to get on my bicycle and head down some of the local trails around us, and that IS a good thing!!!

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.
