Slice of Life: From My Couch 20 of 31
"It's a little different," I conceded, "but life isn't bad from the couch."
They both laughed. "You know. I put my feed up and grab my coffee to watch the sunrise out the front window. I spend some time with the local newspaper and a bit of reading. I get up to get something done and then return...to my couch. I write for a bit, get up to do something, and then return...to my couch." I quipped enjoying the repetitive refrain of my couch quip.
Seriously, the first week of retirement has been energizing. I have set a no rules rule for my first week. No counting calories, no recording exercise, no requirements to get anything done. I've been doing what I want all week - and a lot of it has been from my couch. (Okay, I can't stop.) I'm sure this will change, but for the first time I feel like I own time. If I see something I want to do, I just do it.
Here are some of this week's highlights (and this is just week 1 in the middle of a pandemic):
- Herb shopping at the local nursery (and at time that wasn't busy).
- Drive-through coffee and a random drive, because why not?
- An Apple 30 minute course (that resulted in a nice clean-up of my address book, some correcting of that nasty cloud, and a plan for photo organization).
- A dentist appointment (haven't been since COVID and it was the perk of the week!).
- Read. Write. Read. Write. List. Write.
It's March and I'm diving back into the March Slice of Life Challenge! Buckle in! This will be my 8th year joining the community (though I must confess to a two year break). Yep, some of the writing will be messy. Honestly, most of it will be messy. Thanks for stopping by. I'm excited to dive back into the madness. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for hosting.
