MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Gooooaaaal!!!

Well so far my little plants are surviving.  I managed to get them all transplanted into individual little pots yesterday.  It was quite easy and they’re now sitting on the deep window ledge in our office.  Dear Martha would be proud!!  They’re actually quite beautiful, so I really do hope they survive – or I at least can keep them alive.  Time will tell.

Today is turning out to be a slow and lazy one.  I got up early and uploaded some more files – figured the servers would be relatively quiet on a Sunday morning!!  Assuming everyone is either away or at church!!  Whatever happened, my timing was perfect and I got 10 files uploaded without any being corrupted!!

Aside from the other usual chores, this morning Nat did his crosswords while I watched Sunday Morning.  He starts to get a little antsy by the afternoon, so it’s just as well there’s a couple of hockey games on.  It was raining pretty good at lunch time so we figured we’d be house bound for the rest of the day.  Of course, as I’m typing this the sun is trying to peek through – go figure!!!  A little late ‘ole mister sunshine!!!  I’ve got a pork tenderloin that needs to be cooked and we won’t be able to go anywhere now!!  Just as well, Nat’s well entrenched in his recliner and I just heard “Oh, what a goal!!” – only means one thing, the Canadian team scored!!!  Go Canada!!!!

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.
