Slowing down

I retired at the end of June Slice of Life logo

I worked part time until end of January

I finished a few meetings at the end of February

I am done, I am sitting, I am quiet, I am reflecting


It is the Spring Equinox

the middle

equal day and equal night

 we head into new beginning

    You are right. It does take some getting use to. I retired last June after 40 years in the classroom. It didn’t ‘t hit me until the new school year began in August. However, it didn’t take long to adjust to a new schedule.

    • Yes, the schedule is nice but there are still days when I wonder what lesson I should be planning. Not use to the open time but love the idea of being able to work in the garden if the snow would go away!

    Old habits and love die hard…but, you are beginning a new adventure.

  4. Time to think is a BEAUTIFUL thing! (I almost feel like I need to schedule time to day dream.)
