The internet has really captured me. I started working with it because I like to write and now the ministry, that we participate in, has asked me to help with their blogs and websites. At sixty-nine years young, I thought that the task was overwhelming and then I got into it and found out that I was right. The good news is that I have found people to help me develop the web pages which are beginning to come together and look good. But, because of this activity my personal blogging has taken a back-seat and I really miss it. So – here goes!
Being retired isn’t just sitting in front of the television, traveling, and feeding, the birds. My life is full and busy. I still do the normal things of taking care of the house and yard. We visit my 95 year-old Mom and our kids. The ministry has monthly tent meetings and that has kept us engaged. My Usana business has suffered a bit. Visit me at http://www.encorenow.usana.com and help me out!
Pinterest is a pin-board that is a fun leisure time activity. Most interesting to me is that I can do it and not feel like ‘if only’ I had this or that. It is just a place to see pretty things, learn things, get tips, learn about products, and find humor. Yes, it can be a time-waster but I am learning just to do it for short bursts of time!
In addition to the normal part of my life, who would have thought that the very thing that I struggled with at work (the computer) would become a passion? So now the writing bug has me wrapped up in blogging and posting to web-pages. I am learning so much. I guess the book that I pondered will have to wait.
Here is one of the web sites that I have in process – http://www.fireinthestreets.com. The picture is what I am using as a header. Cool huh?
So what is keeping you engaged and happy in your retirement?
