Our lives have been chaos lately with bad things coming in threes x 3 (so, 9 bad things happening) in just three weeks. Couple that with winter finally showing up with about 5 cm (2 inches) of snow and feels like temps of -30C (22 F below).
Today, the snow had stopped, the sun was shining and the sky was blue. We were lured in, thinking “How cold could it be”?
Lets just say it was chilly with the sun at our backs, but hey, there were no mosquitoes and very few walkers on the paths.
After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement.
I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ 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 wanted me to do has been rewarding.
While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us.
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 not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.
