Hat's Off To Those Not Retired

I take my hat off, to those of you that are not retired. I don't for the life of me how you can find time to produce such beautiful quilts and other items. I don't know how you can find time to post to your blogs, read, and respond to the blogs that you do. And you all with kids - well that is a whole nother story. Here I am retired and I cannot find the time to do but a small fraction of the things you all do. Each day in the morning I write down the things that I want to get done during the day. I do not load the list up either. When I write the list it really seems like I'll get the things done. What I don't get done, is carried over to the next day. I think I have created a monster. To make matters worse, my lists so far are only the fun things - quilting, wood carving and woodworking. If I start adding things to the list that I need to get done around the house, I may have to consider retiring from being retired.

For those of us with kids, full-time jobs, etc., sometimes it's the diversions that keep us sane!

When I worked, I knew I would put in an 8 to 10 hour day. Now, the days drift into nights and so on.

I make a list in the morning too, it must be our age! I give 2 hours to the house and planning dinner then it's all about sewing for the rest of the day-and some night too!

I sent all the ladies over here to look at the father/daughter doll clothes quilt. You have a lot of mommies of little girls drooling over that quilt!
