Lazy Days

We awoke this morning after sleeping badly last night for reasons that escape both of us (but could have to do with visits from the cat at 4 AM, 6 AM and 8 AM). It dawned clear and cold (-15°). Those of you who read my other blog will know from this post that Sunshine had spring-like conditions  this past weekend, and now has re-frozen to some pretty firm conditions that take warm sun (or new snow) to repair. We have had neither, and today wasn't going to help.

So we rolled over. And awoke just before noon.

As I wrote here, one of the joys of retirement is you get to get up when you want, and today we didn't want. So it was a lazy day instead of a ski day. I spent most of the afternoon planning our next vacation (a month long road trip to the South Eastern US). KC spend the afternoon sewing. We watched/played with an incredible National Film Board interactive video on the life of Bear 71, who hung out in my neighborhood for the last 11 years.

Retirement rocks.

Now, if I could just get my cat into "retirement mode".

That was your funniest blogpost in a while! Your cat will get the idea one of these days, believe me!
