Retired: My Day

Because I am retired, I have a lot of time on my hands.

When I first get up for the day, I make a healthy meal for myself. I either have eggs and sausage or cereal and fruit. I always drink milk for calcium.

After breakfast, I spend the morning reading. I love to read and it keeps my mind sharp. If I am not reading fictional books, I read books on science, math or art. I love learning new things. Right before lunch, I take an hour walk around my block. I meet up with my friend Mary so I have some company. We tend to see our neighbors as we walk so it is always nice to catch up with them.

For lunch, I usually make a meal with a reasonable amount of calories. After lunch, I go outside and tend to my garden. In my garden, I grow organic vegetables so I can eat healthy without having to spend so much money at the grocery store.

After the tending, I take a swim in my pool. It is always very relaxing to have the water sooth my sore body. But, at the same time, I am getting exercise.

After that, my grandkids come over off the bus. I babysit them until 5 pm when their father picks them up. We paint and do crafts together.
Sometimes we go to the grocery store to get food. Other times we watch animated movies that they bring over. The kids always keep me alert and happy.

After they get picked up, I watch the local news and make dinner. While I eat dinner, I watch the national news. After that, I read a book until it is time to go to bed.

I enjoy my life and enjoy being healthy and productive in retirement.

Retirement Pen Friend

Dear India Friend- My name is Diana, and I live in the USA. I live in the state of UTAH. I am a retired teacher of the blind and deaf-blind students. I have an adopted daughter and she is from India. Her name is Anandi. She was born in Calcutta.

I like to sew, make greeting cards, make crafts and I like to quilt. I especially like to write letters in the 'snail mail' fornat, as I like collecting the stamps. If you like to collect stamps, I have some stamps of the USA for the 1900's. They have not been canceled.
