I am loving retirement!! The best part is not having to set an alarm clock! On Monday morning, I volunteer at The Gathering Place, an organization that helps people who have been diagnosed with cancer. I went through a bout with endometrial cancer in 2010 and I am happy to say I’ve been free and clear since. My other volunteering is at Playhouse Square as a Redcoat, seating people for performances. It’s a great way to see shows for free!
My favorite past time is traveling. I have been fortunate enough to travel to Italy in 2011 and 2012. In 2011, I lived in Florence for over a month with Debbie Bratt and her sister. We also stayed a week in Paris. Last year I cruised Italy with my sister and her best friend. I’m so lucky!
Of course, winter in Cleveland sends me straight to my sisters in Deerfield Beach, Florida. I usually stay about two months. My sister and I are starting to plan our next adventure for summer 2014. We are thinking maybe an Alaskan cruise or Barcelona, Spain. Any suggestions?
I still enjoy flea markets, rummage and garage sales but I don’t go very often since I’m not buying toys for school anymore. I still get a little crafty now and then. I made a lot of yard art which consists of gluing old vases and plates together to make a statue. I also have been embellishing T-Shirts.
Best of all – I lie in my hammock and read a book. LIFE IS GOOD!!!
