Vacation Over

Catherine and I goofing around

Well, that’s it then,

today is my last day of vacation.

It flew by, I had lots of fun.

Got lots of fresh air,

did lots of reading,

ate some delicious food,

spent quality time with friends.

Went to the movies, museum,

botanical garden, a mini road trip,

baseball game,

hung out,

Spent extra time with,

the woman I love.


petted George even more,

than usual.

Listened to music,

drank coffee,

disactivated social media,

for 9 days,

didn’t wear a watch,

for the better part of a week.

Experienced heat, and chilliness.


I watched tennis and golf,

I caught up on Painting with John.

I planned my Fall schedule.

I booked doctor’s appointments,

fourth doses, blood tests,


I smoked a little pot,

with a friend,

I never smoke pot,

but it was fun.

I signed up for a few,

online classes.

I mourned a friend.


I have loved my time,

for me.

On my schedule, on my time table,

eating when I am hungry,

rising when my body feels,

it has slept enough.

I wish there was more,

but…we all have work to do,

work is an important part,

of our lives.

I do work I like,

work that means something to me.

Still, I have been looking ahead,

to retirement,

you need to think about it,

plan it, at least a little.

It’s September,

my favourite month.

A busy month,

a month full of memories,

a month to remember,

to plan for the coming of,

Fall and Winter.

It’s a cool Labour Day Monday,

and I am feeling good.

Have a wonderful day

Later girls,
