so....the retirement step is still an issue... can't seem to decide who I am. I have had a mission(s) my whole life and to suddenly be without is just plain weird. I need to get to a place where I can be happy with just being me. Jean. :-)
I probably should go back to work because I am madly spending money trying to do nothing! I have taken up making hand made greeting cards and for a person who hardly ever sends one, that is really desperate. Turns out that I like it. Turning a piece of paper into a meaningful message is quite satisfying. Some day I will post a couple of pictures...or you can go to Queen B's. They let me put a rack of them in their shop and a couple of people actually bought some. go figure... :-)
I got the first item checked off my bucket list! I did! I did! I really did....NOT by myself though. Brother Robert and sis-in-law Julia worked their butts off for a whole week. I have been wanting to clear out the land between our house and this magnificent oak tree since we built our home in 1980. For 31 years I have looked at that treetop- you couldn't walk to it because of the under growth. Wow...isn't it just beautiful? I am still working...turns out the grandsons like earning $$ helping me.
I feel like such a big girl now....I can drive a tractor and have my own chain saw. Wahoo! just like my mom. :-) she is probably thinking 'bout damn time!
hmmm...kitchen might be a safer place after all!
