Not bad.
Mind is at ease.
Couldn't sleep in cause my internal clock has not yet adjusted.
Lots of little projects to do.
Can't believe the junk that is on TV this early in the morning.

It'* raining outside and 50F (10C)

Haven't got on the wifes nerves yet.

Think I'll go tinker in the garage........

Man, even form work I am usually on the wife'* nerves by now. You're not trying hard enough.

Seriously, I hope you enjoy your time. There is usually a fairly good amount of activity here during the day for your entertainment pleasure.

My retirement home is the one I've been living in for the last 20 years.

Nice view of the Pacific ocean to watch the whales and cruise ships go by with snow capped mountains on the horizon. Out front are 150 foot Fir trees with eagles nests to watch baby eagles grow every year.
Out back is my garage and my new tool shed.
Can't get too much better than that.

Now I have to get busy and paint the bathroom, after that will come a major house re-org.

Very soon you will wonder how you even had time to go to work. Sounds like you already have a plan for the future.

Ask Archon about retirement. He is probably busier now than before IIRC the conversation correctly.

Just not enough time to do everything I had planned to do today.

I forgot to turn the alarm clock off and it woke me up at 6:00 am

The wife went to bed a hour ago and I am still catching up on posts.

Got to start painting tomorrow.

So far I'm really liking this life of leisure.

......going for another Margarita night cap.
