ON ANOTHER NOTE:

Today I will be getting some housework finished up!

I will be getting back into the Craft Room later today!

I have missed being there, but the trip to RI was a priority.

I enjoyed my time there!

Now, I need to get back into retirement mode!

Hah! Fat Chance! I’m doing more now than when I was working!

I don’t understand how I worked 40 hours

(sometimes more, if offered Overtime hours!)

How did I do that, and maintain my house and all I do now?

It seems like I do more now than I did then!

Oh Well, such is life! I am alive to do it!

Amen!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings to you ALL!
