Retirement redefines the calendar.
Once our lives were a steady rhythm of weekday responsibilities and weekends of cherished free time…
I remember the melancholy of Sunday night when going to sleep meant relinquishing control back to the demands of the work week.
Now we generally explore the world during the weekdays when recreation areas are abandoned.
Except when we go to spend time with our adult kids and families…still deeply immersed in the work/school stage of life.
The weekend becomes the window of time when we can relax and enjoy each other’s company all together.
Time for golfing, hiking…
winery visits, a leisurely game of disc golf,
antique store exploring, a geocache or two…. early dinner, camp fire
and evening conversation.
