A Day in the Life of a Retiree
All I can say is, "HA!"
Yesterday morning I got up before 8, as now that I'm retired I find I can't sleep past 8! Whoever get up first unloads the dishwasher from the night before and feeds the cat - feeds the cat first, as a matter of fact, for else!
Then Raf makes his coffee, and I get our water. We need to have water by us all the time. I learned this when Mother was older. Drink Water!
At 8 I made a new coffee cake recipe. I baked bacon, and when it was done, we had breakfast.
After breakfast I began a pot of soup for supper, cutting up vegetables, glazing meat, and in general, making a stock for a good pot of soup.
I then bathed, and together with the cat who always sits with me when I read my Bible, I read a few chapters of Jeremiah. I am slowly reading my way through the Bible, as I have never done that. The Apocryphal books, included.
Following Jeremiah, I put a load of clothes on to wash.
Then I came into my office to write the next chapter of my new book, Murder on Dodson Prairie, and then I put up a short blog and wrote some about genealogy.
I did some genealogical research for my grandson, and then I did some writing for DAR.
I dried the clothes and prepared for supper.
Yes, I choose to do these things, but as my friend Margaret told me long ago, you are busier after you retire than before.
Rest in peace, Margaret!
