What To Do Now

This retirement thing is becoming quite monotonous. I have to admit that I spent the month of May housecleaning and it was long overdue. I also got my outside containers filled and arranged just how I like it (although I still rearrange them at least once a week) and I had a good visit with Mom and Debbie in Yorkton. There was also a shopping trip to Medicine Hat, our retirement party (which I really should post some pictures and tell you all about it), the Oasis Players barbeque, the KBSTS field trip (retired teachers still like to take those June field trips)and numerous golf games. But what to do when it rains? And we have had more rain this spring than the last 3 or 4 years combined. You can only read so many books, watch so many movies and sweep the kitchen floor so many times and then you find that you are bored. OOPS! Did I say that out loud? It looks like I am going to have to find some new hobbies for the rainy days or start sorting and cleaning in the lower basement. That's where all the boxes I brought home from the school are stacked and waiting for someone to sort through. I really had planned to do that when there was snow on the ground but it looks like I will get an early start to that job. Unless someone can suggest something I should really surf the net looking for or (don't let the farmers hear me say this) we have a long hot dry spell!
