I am entering the holiday season in a good mood, with few stressful plans (e.g. not cooking Thanksgiving dinner for a crowd & no long distance travel), and looking forward to what we do have planned. We are going to Friendsgiving at my son and DIL's on Saturday, a holiday concert with dinner after with local friends on Sunday, a December book club holiday gathering, women's club December luncheon, the Rose Parade and brunch at my son and DIL's. Our other son and family will be down for the Rose Parade.
There are other things possible - perhaps a another concert or a holiday artists' market, a staycation in Pasadena for a few days while son and DIL are gone for Christmas at her parents, driving around to see the holiday lights. It is feeling perfect to me right now.
- My little immediate family and even our little dog are all well & happy,
- We are settled for now in a home that works for us in a lovely location,
- We have adjusted (mostly) to being retired with new friends, activities and interests.
- Our retirement financial situation allows us to do what is important to us plus add in some pleasures.
Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving weekend if you are in the US and otherwise are doing well.
And by the way, pumpkin pie makes a delicious breakfast!
