I enjoy my retirement, but I realize I've been retired for almost 10 years! I can't think of anything significant that I've accomplished during that decade ("decade"? It sounds so long!), but I'll use the excuse that my husband is still working. What I love is the opportunity to make crafting messes and leave them if I feel like it....and I can hop in the car and take a little drive in the country looking for subjects to photograph and then spend hours on the computer playing with the images. This image is from my recent follow-up appointment for my new hip and the "all clear" for a year. It's a 60-mile drive through farm and ranch lands bordered by the Elkhorn Mountains to the west and the Eagle Caps of the Wallowas to the east. On the trip back, the sun was lower in the west and there was a beautiful golden glow to the winter scene. Those snow-covered Wallowa Mountains are majestic any time of year. As a retiree, I realize that I can take this drive anytime I like.
