It’s been a while since my last post. I have ceased working for my employer of 39 years.
Here’s the card I got from some of the kids. I treasure their ‘comments.’
After my refusal to ‘work’ like the good daughter in Grimm’s Mother Holle tale of my last Blog, I’ve stopped and just got on with it .
Just like the golden-haired daughter, I’ve been doing what needs doing – ‘shaking the apple tree,’ and ‘stacking the fruit.’
Getting back to sustaining routines and some order in my life.
I’ve given away all the books I don’t need any more. Like the ugly sister who returns with no treasure, but covered in black stuff that sticks to her for the rest of her days, I’ve let “stuff” weigh me down, most of my working life – data … information …
So now I’m into celebrating simple experiences, like the perfect boiled egg,
Being home with myself “when the feathers fly” as I make the beds,
Keeping a weather-eye open for signs of change,
Cherishing my freedom,
Friends and fun
And wondering how it will be now … telling more stories …
and singing silly songs as I follow a new path.
