    Default Another first Monday post...

    Just have to tell you all that because this is the first Monday of June that means that I'm now on part time work! I'm to get my first SS check the 19th of this month so from now on I will be only working 4 days a week and in January I'll be going to 3 days a week! Maybe someday I can actually retire full time !

    Hope you all have a great day!

    Enjoy that extra day off! Spend it doing whatever you makes you smile

    Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859

    Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didnít come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.

    How great! Interesting to be winding down this way. Sure will make the transition to full retirement easier. My sis just retired and was really worried about how she'd fill her time. She seems to be managing quite well so far. I just wish she had a hobby like us. Her passion is books, old movies and antiques. She's studied art and is quite talented but doesn't seem to have any interest in creating art. She has some basket quilt blocks she started many, many year ago. I've encouraged her to get busy working on them again, and I'd quilt the top for her once she has it together. She actually pulled it out. We'll see if she gets interested again. I inherited my love of sewing from all the women on both sides of our family. Don't know why she didn't get that gene. She claims it's because she's a leftie and it's a rightie world. I have told her that's not the case in sewing anymore. After all, look at Liz Fons. She's a leftie and she's a big star in the quilting world. (Okay, she's ambidextrous but she's mostly a leftie.)

    I know you won't have any trouble filling your time. Congratulations on your forward journey toward full retirement. As my sis says, "Everyone I know who is retired always has a big smile on their faces!"
