One of the nice things about retirement is that you don't have to do anything constructive if you don't want to. Today I didn't want to.
My daughter and granddaughter stopped in to see me this morning. Nicki is excited about her trip. She has some sort of a heart shaped sticker on her leg. She will remove it when she gets home so she can see just how much of a tan she gets in the Florida sunshine. She makes me laugh!
My daughter likes to shop in my pantry now and then. She made off with canned beef, potatoes, carrots and peas and a jar of tomatoes that will all be put together and made into a beef stew. Canned peaches and pears also found their way into the box that held the stew fixings. I am glad that my kids want to eat what I have canned. But then, Moms always like to feed their kids, no matter how old they get!
It has just been sort of a lazy day otherwise, with a good deal of it spent curled up with a cup of coffee and my Kindle. I did venture outside for a while. The temperature here is close to 50 degrees. I have opened some windows a bit. It is so nice to be able to do that, and the fresh air flowing into the apartment is wonderful.
That's about all that's going on here today, and it is enough for me. I will probably find some ambition tomorrow and get back to doing the things that usually occupy my time and energy. But for now, I will refill my cup and read another chapter. And love every minute of it.
