RETIREMENT - Nine Years Later!

Greetings, Friends!

Today represents the end of nine years of my retirement from the workforce.  Wow!  Did that go by quickly!  Today, though, represents the celebration of when it actually feels like I'm retired since these past years have been jam packed with too much work!  It is so easy for someone like me to take on too much - volunteer work, gardening, household maintenance - everything in every way.  Well, we just sold our house after a year on the market [Maintaining two houses was awful!]; I am coming to an end of much of my volunteer work; we are now in a lower maintenance home that I love; and I am now, for the first time, in a position to completely enjoy each and every day of my NEW retirement.

To celebrate the day I'm having lunch with a friend, going to a lecture on British history (London in the late 1800's), going to a movie ("The Glass Castle" based on Jeannette Walls book), then coming home to a new pet cat - Mau Mau - arriving all the way from Hong Kong!  

So, I better get on with it!  No time to spare!

Seven years ago I started this blog.   As you can tell, I only post periodically; but I didn't want this occasion to pass without sharing something with you.   So... time for more FOODIE FUNNIES!!!!

TINY KITCHEN - Macaroni and Cheese

We are just back from a delightful Christmas - New Years trip to England. Now to make up for eating all of those "chips" by going on a diet! Perhaps if I can limit my food intake to this recipe I will be successful. Check it out!
