Happy new year!

Wait - it's the end of January. Where have I been?

I've been adjusting - to being retired, and to so many things. So, so many.Change is a bitch.

I almost decided to abandon the blog altogether because - well - it wasn't quite the dividing line between two parts of my life, as I always thought it was.
Here I am, here I'll stay. 

To that which I have left behind, let me say adieu. I hope you are well, I hope you are happy, and I want you to know that being out of that particular gravitational force is the one thing about retirement that is a total win.

So what's new? Well, I have a different spinning wheel now. Gidget has moved to her new home, and I have a new friend, pictured above - a Louet Victoria whose name is Maud. She's as camera-shy as I am, so you may only catch glimpses of her, but she is a joy to have around. Trust me on that.

To be continued. Really.

Oh, I'm so glad to hear you are well. I was thinking about you yesterday and wondered how the retirement was going.

Maud is doing some good work, there. What beautiful yarn you two are making.

Transformation, it can be so beautiful.

You were thinking of closing the blog?! Nooooo!

Bridget said...

Glad you are sticking around! Congratulations on enjoying your retirement.

The spinning is beautiful. I hope the knitting becomes items of immense beauty and comfort.

This is a year of changes for me too and so far I'm adjusting. Enjoy all retirement has to offer for you. Change may be a bitch but it is much better than being stuck in the mud.
