Just put ham and bean on to slow cook in the oven. If I didn't have to work, I could do so much with my time and energy. Retirement...I await you with bated breath.
As if I something else on which to spend my time, the offspring turned me on to Pinterest over the holidays. While I think it is an interesting site on which to save ideas for future reference, I find the dichotomy of dessert recipes, and the commitment to healthier lifestyles and exercise programs very concerning. What are these young women wanting? Organized lives, with soft sugar cookies, and skinny jeans...I think, anyway!
My boards? A camera poster, a knitting comic strip, and a wooden spool wreath...and candles made with Epsom salts. Yep, an old lady's pinterest. (I am beckyperryirons, by the by..)
In other news, I have spent approximately six weeks now learning my new smarty pants phone. I upgraded to a Droid shortly before Thanksgiving...or maybe shortly after. Who knows...Christmas has happened since, but I digress. I am loving being able to play Scrabble at work! You know...on my lunch hour! I have found that Amazon offers a free app/day. Lately they have mostly been games, but I have scored a couple of good other types, like a doc app, and an organizer one. Good news is that it hasn't beaten me. Downside is I have had to learn something new...again...and there is still more to master and keep track of and integrate.
Life is tough in the modern world.
One more day off, before the work a day world returns.
