Saturday in the Swamp

Not quite so slothy today, I managed to clean the kitchen and finish my afghan.  No more big projects of any kind for a while.  I have a book of one skein projects and I think I'll do something from it instead.
I enjoyed my slow day yesterday.  That's the best part of being retired, no commitments and nothing you really have to do,  just check yourself into Chez Couch and relax, it's so nice.
Just finished another Joe Slider mystery Dead End by Cynthia Harrods Eagles.  She writes the Morland family saga I'm reading---starting in the 1400's no less--and one set during the First World War.  Both of those are very serious and I enjoy them tremendously.  The Bill Slider mysteries, while still being quite serious, have added dashes of humor that I'm really enjoying.
Off to exercise.

  1. I love those days too when you can hunker down with a good book and forget the world. Retirement is great isn't it :). B x

  4. Lovely blanket with lovely colors. The book you're reading sounds interesting. We have some of your humidity down here in SoCal this week. I know how you feel with not wanting to do anything. Enjoy your Sunday. Pat xx

  7. By coincidence I saw a kit called 'How to make your own hanging sloth' today in the toy section of a large local garden centre which is much more than just a garden centre. It is lovely to be able to relax and take it easy without any commitments:)

  8. Retirement? what's that? I have been retired from teaching for over thirty years and I have filled every minute - life is one long rush - and I prefer it that way.

  16. My co-worker recently announced her retirement (she has six months to go). Her list? Reading and re-reading all the Jack Reacher books. I'm jealous...I've got at least 10 more years to retirement.
