Into retirement, which still does not feel like retirement! It feels like most of my summer breaks, although I am not on a roll trying to fit all the “fun” things into a very short time span, and am enjoying the lovely summer we are actually having in coastal Maine this year.
I am now into milking, cheesemaking, training pigeons, and spending as much time with our grandson as possible. We love to swim and go to the beach, so that’s been a lot of fun. I am trying to get myself into a productive schedule, but have not succeeded yet. That extra cup of coffee on the back steps, smelling the ocean air, is too powerful to resist. I have not gotten much done upstairs where I need to get going on organizing the fiber space. But I have been doing some spinning on a beautiful wool/mohair blend from Friends Folly Farm. My eczema got really bad toward the end of the schoolyear with all the stress, so I couldn’t handle fiber for awhile. But my hands are almost all better, and I am trying to get to a little fiber every day.
And so it goes. Delightful!
