2017 was a rocky year for me - though only in First World terms. It marked the huge change from workin' grl to Laidy of Leeeezure. Yes. I retired in September (like, duh, who hasn't heard me'n'TheBrains yammer on about that ad nausea). Getting to retire was a gift. Being retired is a joy. But getting to retirement was a hard struggle and I wonder if I made it harder than it had to be. Oh well. The good news. I got there At Goal! Yippee.

2018 will be a year of reflection and regrouping for me. I am sure goals will arise. I am sure new pathways will tempt, new horizons will inspire. But what they'll be ... not so sure. I had a spate of medical check-ups in Dec. and Jan and it turns out I am a good bit shorter than I was. 1.25 inches in fact. I am thinking of dropping my goal weight down a few pounds. I want to become a better artist. I do want to take a fancy schmancy vacation. But mostly I am just going to savor this first time without a schedule or a boss since I was 5 years old. Feels durn good.

    So happy to vicariously usher out autumn and winter through your eyes. We are at least a month away from a hint of anything green or floral paying us a visit. Sure a glorious sight when it does, sigh. Today sounds delightful, enjoy it. More squeezes for you...

    There is no such thing as an idle thought. Every thought is affecting not only every cell in our bodies, but also every part of our lives. Dr. Henry Grayson

    That's what retirement is all about. Spoiling ourselves. (AND grandchildren, too!)
