Like anything else, I think retirement requires some practice to get it right, so a I took a vacation day today and thought I’d give it a go. I started the day by heading up to the gym for a good swim. I love to swim, but between work and all the other activities I’m involved with, I haven’t been nearly disciplined enough in getting to the pool on a regular basis. Today’s swim was very refreshing and I feel as if I’ve stretched my muscles out nicely.
There was a shopping list waiting for me by the computer this morning, so after swimming I did a little shopping, then came home to shovel the snow. It’s still snowing, but not that hard. I might have to do one more light shovel later. I wouldn’t call this a winter storm exactly, but since we haven’t had a whole lot of winter this season, maybe this is as good as we’re going to get.
It isn’t really cold out today, but still, I wouldn’t want to be a cowboy out in this….
….or a lumberjack for that matter….
