Funny how this cartoon seemed humorous before Christmas; now, not so much.
However this being January, and also being Monday I was motivated to at least get in a bit of exercise. I walked 4.5 km today. The weather was quite mild and it was good inspiration to get out and let the wind blow the dust off me and burn a few calories. Once again my mind turned to thoughts of others less fortunate than I who would give anything to be able to get out and walk and yet I regard it as a penance. I really need to focus on how fortunate I am to be able to walk in a safe environment, with fresh air, good nourishment, and relatively good health.
I have been working on a pillow for my Son In Law's birthday, and also trying to finish up a quilt for my Grandson. He turned 21 just 3 days after Christmas. TWENTY ONE! How in the word did that happen so fast? Hopeful I will have pics to show soon.
I had a few errands to do in town today and what a spectacular view I had from the grocery store parking lot...
The most vivid rainbow that showed both ends.
For awhile there were two rainbows quite visible, with just a hint of a third...beautiful at any time of the year, but almost unheard of in January in Northern New Brunswick Canada!
Just another reason to smile today...
Mr O and I need to find our groove. We seem to be aimlessly drifting through our day and we can't have that!
This retirement thing is taking a bit of adjusting on both our parts...it is hard to get some kind of schedule to the day. I almost never know what day of the week it is, and the time...well forget it! I am totally confused...we are getting up later than normal, staying up later...
It seems like every day is Saturday!
I have had my day completely to myself since the last of our children left the nest and that has been about 20 years, and now all of a sudden I am not alone in the house during the day. It seems I really don't have any time to quilt. It also seems I am constantly making a meal or cleaning up from it...I am not complaining, just sayin' it will take some getting used to.
The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off.
