I arose out of bed this morning at my usual “built in” alarm setting of around 5am. Being Saturday, I brought the laptop downstairs to read my email and the bloggers that I follow. Sitting here with my first cup of coffee, I realized that in just 2 weeks from today I will be officially Retired! After 39 years of employment, I imagine there’s going to be a little change in my life.
The guys at work, including my department boss have been kidding with me for several weeks now by asking me every time they see me, “How many days Fred?” . They all get a laugh when I answer with the amount of days before I’m gone. But who’s counting?
The coming weeks are going to be extremely busy for us. With the Christmas Holiday season upon us, Wilma has been very busy wrapping gifts, making sure no one is forgotten. We are counting the days before her brother Eddie and his wife Beth arrive from Kentucky to spend the holiday with us. There are plans already made between Wilma’s side of the family and mine, so we are both looking forward to a busy holiday season.
With the weather being so cold for the past week, even the TV weather men are guaranteeing a white Christmas. It hasn’t been above freezing in over a week, with several nights going down into the single digits. We only have a couple inches of snow, but with it being so cold it won’t be melting anytime soon. This is also when I make sure the bird feeder is always full. Wilma said the other day we had 6 squirrels along with the birds.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
