Ahhhh.... Retirement....!









I've been "retired" for a week now. I'm slowly getting used to it. I keep forgetting that I don't have to go to work! I still find myself getting that "rushing around" feeling - like I have to hurry up and get things done before I go to work - or after I get home. Then I remember... I can sloooowww down - LOL! Here is how my husband and I spent the day. We went to Great Falls and just stood above them and watched the rushing water and felt the cooling breeze. We even saw Great Blue Herons flying around. Some of the younger ones were down near the water - sitting on little rocks - trying to catch the fish as they splashed by! I was going to try and get a picture of them - but since the herons were almost the same color as the rocks and the water, I don't think they would have shown up. But it was fun to watch them! We walked around a bit more (we've been to Great Falls many times over our years of living here), so it was just refreshing our memories.... And then we stopped for lunch. And then we dropped by B & N so I could pick up some books I ordered. Now, I need a nap!

That sounds like a great day!! I have never been there or even heard of this. I want to go next time I am there.

As time passes you will get used to not having to go to work and the days will adventually run together. Pure Joy!!
