This morning I'm sitting at my kitchen table before 7:30 a.m. watching the sunlight beam through the trees. I'm delighted to report that the heat and humidity is gone. Tuesday and Wednesday were a bit 'steamy' for me. My husband was delighted, he loves summer - the hotter the better. Oh hey - some good news! My husband is retiring effective mid-August.
The massive amounts of paperwork and busy work was sobering but we are down to one more phone call and one more form. Thank goodness. I lost two solid days to paperwork and two hour phone calls. Sadly my knitting and reading and having fun were minimal this week.
We have no big plans in retirement except to see our kids. I'm sure we will be planning something sometime somewhere. I have to confess, I'm used to the 'staycation' frame of mind and could easily keep this up.
We only walked twice this week due to the weather and schedules. The daisies are out and about! Any day now the day lilies will be blooming. I also heard the tree frogs for the first time during the day, what a welcomed sound.
I reached the sleeves of my sweater (yay!) and now I balance out the three skeins between the two sleeves. I'm cautiously optimistic with how far I got with one skein.
I continue to dabble in watercolor spending more time thinking about it instead of actually doing it. This is part of my creative process though. The thinking and thinking and mulling leads to creative habit eventually for me. I take comfort knowing my 'process'.
Miss Holly has been patrolling the side window every morning while I drink my coffee. She loves to watch the birds. I love to watch her watching the birds. She is a very content cat purring away. When we impulsively kept her 2 1/2 years ago, that was one of the best crazy decisions we ever made.
