Not that I have that much – somehow I manage to stay pretty occupied. Not necessarily busy – but not just twiddling my thumbs either. Retirement was an adjustment – and then I had my painful health issue – so now I’m trying to settle in and be productive at least a little bit.
Think I’ve mentioned before that I have a small cross stitch design business. I’ll never be able to swim with the big boys, but it gives me something to focus on. I market them online at my own online shop, on Etsy and to a wholesale site. I won’t make big bucks, but it keeps me busy – AND, I enjoy it.
Sadly, I’m not the artist some of my ancestors were. I have some gorgeous paintings done my both my grandmother and my grandfather who were both very talented. A couple of my favorites.
