I have been mostly retired for the past couple of years. A couple speech-language clients here, a short term speech subbing job there. I start a new one tomorrow. Seriously, only have to work 8 1/2 days…. I am looking forward to it but I thought I should put together a post because yes, it’s 8 1/2 days but seems like forever! Peculiar how one can forget the insanity, the rigor, of the 50+hour work week sustained for years upon years. But I love seeing the kids and it’s good to shake up the routine periodically.
Part of my routine has been lots of yoga, getting back to walking without a 130lb dog to reign in every 30 ft. Trying to look all around, not just down. Taking photos…lots of tree photos. You don’t want to see me doing yoga but here’s a recent tree. I love the way branches bend and coil all existing cozily together.
Much of my time has been writing my next novel. 1938…Glenwood Springs, CO…time travel. What a mix!
If you know the backstory of my novel, Whispers for Terra, you know several characters were found in my own meadow. Well, there’s a new girl in town…..can you see her?….I made it easy.
Lastly, there’s Miss Zoey….if she’s not following me from room to room, commanding said room, she’s sleeping. Here she is commanding. She doesn’t watch for North from the top of the steps every night anymore but many. Both Jon and I have heard North sounds…..
See you in 8 1/2 days or in forever, whichever comes first.
