MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Ho Hum!

Leave a comment

An extremely quiet day today.  The usual crap – cleaning and mucking about.  Nat’s feeling better since yesterday and has been working away in the garage.  He’s now starting to finish taping the drywall and then he’ll give it a coat of paint.  Must say, it’s looking so much better, and I can only imagine he’s starting to chomp at the bit to get his workshop set up.  We’ve got Felicia’s Grade 8 Graduation ceremony tonight at Sir Winston Churchill in St. Catharines.  It’s hard to believe she’ll be the second grandchild in high school this Fall.  Karly will be in Grade 10, Felicia in Grade 9 and I’ll be plucking grey hairs and asking where the time went!!  We’re looking forward to going to the ceremonies, as it will give us a chance to get dressed up.  That’s something we don’t do a whole lot of anymore – but I must admit we clean up well!!!!

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.
