where ya been?

One rather sharp regular reader to my blog noticed my shorter than usual posts..... you know who you are ..............Patsi!

So why is that?

Retirement keeping me so busy?
Gallivanting with the Red Hats?
My many hobbies?
Vacation from vacation?
Gardening?
Nope none of those , can you guess?
Here is a clue.

Yes you are right I have been working again...........as a casual, only due to circumstances ( one full time off with illness and one let go) I am working more than I expected......full time!
I had agreed to working as a casual when I retired and for the first 10 months heard nothing then this June some requests for my services came at first rather slowly then before I knew it August is a full month........
Am I liking it?
Yes, it is great to see everyone again, catch up on all the news.. the social aspect ...I am much more relaxed , " Hey, I am just a casual" .... the bank account is loving this mad money........... Hummmmmmmmm, more card making supplies in my future....... a few speciality plants for the garden ........ finding some new touches for the house........... always something the money can come in handy for.......... weekend shopping trip............the list is endless...........of course.
I appreicate my freedom from the day to day grind all the more for this little spurt of work.....
