Today I am sitting in my easy chair with my feet up, reading . I've sent Tim off to the golf course and I have the house to myself. Ahhh, the quiet! I didn't realize how relaxing quiet could be until I got it back if only for a few hours. I definitely miss my "quiet time" that I have in the mornings when Tim goes off to work. I will definitely appreciate it more when I am back in the retired ranks. It's time to stop and smell the roses (flowers)!
