thoughts on living
last night we went to some friends home for dinner * all very nice * delicious food * great fun.. however he has just retired at age 53 and they are now facing their future into their older years...so they have started up what they call their portfolio and are busy buying properties for investments... I am not business minded at all but they kept urging me to keep an eye on dear Joe's plan for our twilight years..honestly I am not interested... I trust him that way... I guess I am a simple soul as I told them that all I wanted when I get older and Joe retires is to be looked after * a lovely comfy home, home made bread on the table, lavender plants growing, a small garden, some chickens & hand knitted cardis... sitting on verandah with my soul mate.. rocking with a crochet blanket on my knee and visited from time to time by family and friends...I told them of an old german man who walks past my gate daily and stops for a chat.. he was a builder, has retired and said the other day.. as long as I can walk and have my fresh bread, I am happy. I want to be like that
they thought I was absolute nuts. Am I ????
