I can't believe it has been five days since I blogged. I guess I've been keeping myself busy! But looking back, I can't think of much that I've done.
I started doing some substitute work. It's fun! I come and go and accept or turn down jobs as I want to. It's like a dream job. I used to day dream about working hours like this, and now I'm living it. Wheee! Love it so far. I get to see students, some of my former co-workers, meet new ones... it's super duper.
The other day I putzed around at home, then decided to go out to a movie. I saw "Hereafter." It was interesting and OK, but not great.... however, Matt Damon is in it, and that makes it almost great, in my book. He is one of my faves. At first I thought I'd be getting a private showing of the movie, but then five other people joined me. Six people in a whole theater! Funny.
After the movie I went to a nearby restaurant. A few people wandered in for some take-out, and then there was me seated and eating in the dining room. The only customer! It was 3 p.m., so most people weren't eating at that weird time. I was having a late lunch. Sometimes my eating schedule gets very thrown off now that I'm retired.
I stayed and read for a while in the restaurant, then I left and was driving home in a lazy manner when my phone rang. It's lucky it did, because the call was about a meeting I was supposed to go to in a half hour. I had completely forgotten about it! I made it in plenty of time. No one knew I had almost blown it off!
As for sewing, I have been in a slump lately and not too interested. I did manage to make this bag. It's quilted and lined and has a pocket inside and the flap attaches with velcro. I plan to put it in the small quilt auction at my guild's show in February.
And that is the sum total of this retiree's ramblings. Can you handle the excitement??
