It has been a long time Coming

I really have been a long time in doing this but finally I made the decision to retire. My last day of work was the 29th of October.... Since then I have been playing catch up, voluntiering at  Daybreak and the Adrian Senior Center.

Oh how nice to actually be able to sleep in a bit in the morning. Even the dogs have finally decided they no longer have to be up at 4:45 every day.

I did think I was going to have a year of 3 days with no one around so I could craft, play on the computer or just do what ever I wanted. That is until early December when George came home and said  "My last day is the 23rd." Oh well. His computer is in one end of the house and mine is in the other end. LOL

I  am so enjoying not getting up and the drive this winter on snow, ice or slush. Then trying to wade through a half plowed parking lot to get into work. It snows and I manage a nice cup of hot chocolate and a good book, curl up on the couch and watch the birds at the feeders and read to my hearts content.

I am looking forward to now really leaning this blog idea and working at it to really get it going. I have found so many wonderful blogs over the last few months and think to myself. Now I can do this. I have found wonderful projects and hope to share many of them over the months ahead. 

So bear with me as I learn how to really Blog.
