Bad weather is not always so bad - offers a good excuse to do those kind of enjoyable things that, for whatever reason, we seem to think we can't do any other time At times I can't wait til winter really hits but I also know I will live to regret this thought (about 1/2/10).

Agreed! When I was working I hated having bad weather on the weekends...it seemed so unfair to have to be stuck inside the house after being stuck inside an office all week. But now that I'm retired it just doesn't really matter so much. There's always tomorrow!

Just one of the many true joys of retirement. Friends and family questioned our decision to move 2,000 miles because we'd experience four seasons, one of them being true winter. As we explained, that was one of the lures. We missed the seasons and besides, if the weather is bad at times, being retired we don't have to go out in it.

Actually was pretty nice weather here for Friday the 13th. Sunny and typical fall high 40s. Went for a walk, did laundry, thought about cleaning out some closets. May do that tomorrow - It's fun to read what others are doing. Been planning a short trip. First thought we'd go to NYC or DC but now it seems the season has past for it to be warm enough for that. Guess now we'll think about further south.

Lovely weather here today, high about 70 with clear blue skies. Got up early and took the dog for a walk on the beach.

My wife and I went over to Wendy's today, and had M&M Twisted Frosty's for lunch. Came home and put some fertilizer around the trees and bushes, since they are calling for pretty heavy rains tonight.

Nice being retired!

Nothing much done today...sat outside in the sun this morning for a little suntan on top of the tan I got yesterday on top of the tan the day before...guess I will have the same routine tomorrow.

Am in Baja below the border and it's been in the 70's lately.

Getting a little tired...think I'll have a one hr nap before fixing dinner.

Let's see. I'm getting ready for our trip this weekend to our place in central florida. Since the bf wants to bring so many toys (motorcycle and jet boat and RV) we're going to be caravaning down with each of us driving a vehicle. I'm driving his chevy packed to the gills with things I've thinned out from here and towing the boat, and he's driving his old RV with the motorcycle behind it. I told his middle aged son he couldn't come this year as I can't stand his temper tantrums so I'll be having long days driving. We'll probably take Rt 81 down towards the Atlanta area and either switch over to 95 or go down the middle of fla staying at truck stops. Hoping everyone on CD who's along the way will come out and wave so we can see you and say hello, you won't be able to miss us.

Spent the day forwarding the mail, notifying Mcard of travel plans, paid the bills, packed small things into car, last minute laundry, picked up things I need at the dollar store I won't be able to find as cheaply there, did the supper thing while watching the Lpga, and need to do dreaded filing tonight. Also tried to set up a bluetooth plug-in for vehicle communications but every time I called from the car he hung up on me as he didn't want to use minutes, so I have no idea if the darned thing works or not.
