Many friends have told me that I will be busier in retirement than I ever was while teaching.
I’m not sure that’s possible, but I already know after two months that I’m going to be busy doing things that I WANT to do, and not as many as I don’t want to do. That’s progress.
In the last ten days, I have been very busy being “retired.” You can judge for yourself.
I sat with a friend who was in the hospital and took photos of her flowers, playing with some of the new camera apps I’ve downloaded to my iPhone.
I went to the bakery and bought a beautiful loaf of multi-grain bread, which we devoured; it was going to spoil quickly anyway, right? While there, I couldn’t help taking photos of these delicious desserts.
We went to Ravinia Festival twice over three days, and as usual, I got some interesting photos.
If this is what being too busy in retirement means, I don’t want to be less busy. So far, I’m having a fabulous time.
