|Texas Primroses blooming on the deck|
Earlier this week I told a friend that I'm trying to get the hang of
NOT doing chores every day
NOT creating a to do list
and NOT feeling like a bum if I just choose to read a book.
I can't say that I'm really good at this, but I am improving. I am trying for that free-flowing summer...
|Biking on the Monon Trail|
One morning this week at breakfast I proposed biking on the Monon Trail. So we biked 15 miles riding from Broad Ripple to Carmel and back to Broad Ripple.
|Lunch at Matt the Miller's|
We enjoyed a great lunch outdoors at Matt the Miller's, a neat little restaurant in Carmel.
|Alice enjoying the porch|
Monday night we enjoyed a great evening with my niece Diane, her husband Andrew and their cute daughter Alice. All of us reveled in a beautiful evening on the porch, especially Alice who loves the outdoors!
|Drum machine which Mike repaired|
And last night Mike, Chuck and Mel enjoyed a fun band night at our house. The recent flea market find drum machine was a hit (no pun intended).
And so you don't think I'm a total slug, I erected a little "rabbit prevention" fence for my squash plants.
|Newly found lawn art|
Ok, I kind of hate to admit the following...
Learning from Mikie about the "finds" on trash day, I came across this lovely concrete statue on my neighborhood walk this morning. Unable to carry it because it weighs about 20 pounds, I hid it behind a fire hydrant so the trash guys wouldn't pick it up. Later I carted it home in my car.
Exciting at finding a great lawn statue for free? YES!
And there was still time this week to finish one book, start another and take a walk with a friend!
So maybe I am getting the hang of this retirement stuff after all. It's been a great week and not a lot of chores. Can't beat it!
Hope you have a great weekend.
