Looks like I haven’t been posting much lately and I know I’ve not been doing my regular Sunday posts for a long time. I never really know what I’m going to do on this blog and never make promises or predictions of what I might do, but likely I’ll be changing things up a bit in the next few weeks. This will be the tenth year I’ve been doing this blog and a lot has changed since I started. I’m might change to a new WordPress theme as the one I’m using is no long supported, I might start posting different content – heck I might even put a new picture of me on the front page.
You never know. Retired life is busy but relaxed. This month has been party month. Both Heather and I have birthdays this month – a week a part so we often just have a long celebration week. Last Sunday was the big party:
I made the sign by printing out Scrabble letter titles from a website our son found and he ran streamers everywhere.
It’s been cold here so not much happening in the yard, but I’m still doing some scroll saw work. Current projects almost completed:
Just one more bird to cut out and then I’m done with that. The other things are just Christmas ornaments.
I do have a couple of projects left before I start moving on to shop and yard projects as the weather warms up:
The drawing is a thing Heather wants me to build. More on that as I get to work on that.
The other big projects here have been more in the legal and financial area. It’s that time to update our estate planning and I’m doing some major reshuffling of our retirement funds. That and tax time is just about here. I wouldn’t have thought retirement taxes would be this weird, but the government never wants to loosen its grip on your wallet. Sorry but no pictures on any of that – somethings you just don’t want photos of.
Well, time to take the party decorations down while I’m waiting for the account, lawyer and broker to call me back. If you need me – I’ll be on the ladder removing tape and streamers.
