Is My Smile Too Big?

At the end of the day on Thursday, I'll be officially
R E T I R E D!

Oh, boy oh boy, do I have plans!

That other lady is a little worried that I'll have lots of extra
time on my hands to make more projects than her...
not that we're competitive or anything. Look what she made for me----

SO SWEET!

Beth Strand said...

Congratulations! Of course, my mom retired at sixty-five and began working at her local library as a volunteer. 8 years later, they hired her and she's been with them four days a week ever since! At 81, she may be the oldest person working for the City of San Diego but she is doing something she loves! I get a glimpse of retirement every Fall when the kids go back to school...can't wait for the real thing someday! Enjoy!

Absolutely wonderful!! I love being retired and find that I'm as busy as ever. Looks like you'll have a leg-up on MS with all your 'retired time'!! lol (Note the pun 'leg-up' since you used a dog as a mascot!)

Quilt n Queen said...

Congratulations Carol!!! Retirement is sEw exciting....I've been retired since moving to the US in 2002...and I'm now busier then I was when I worked full time....but back then I wasn't quilting. I started quilting just before we moved to Tennessee. Wishing you a long and happy retirement...you are going to love it!! hugs Pauline

Linda J said...

Congratulations on the retirement, Carol! You will be purely amazed how busy your schedule will be especially if you sew and now have time for quilt groups, quilt classes etc etc. You may have even more items for the blog hops than you do now!! I have been retired for 16 yrs now and I am so rarely bored or without something to keep me busy.

I've missed a few posts as I have been nose to the grindstone to get my items done for HO HO HO--in the homestretch on binding!
