Profusion of blooms

around every corner.

Pinks, purples and blues

overwhelm all the senses

Pollinators flit about.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks Aiva. Sorry to hear about all your rain. We are living the life of a cool and sunny fall here. Up to +11 tomorrow and then the weather cools off. Snow by Tuesday next?? It has been a good fall. Thanks for reading. Allan

    1. The friends of Finnerty manage this garden and after seeing it, I think they do a fabulous job. Even past mid September, it was covered in blossoms. Thanks for reading Blanca. Hope all is well with you. Allan
