Myrtle Beach January 11, 2019


Cold morning, warm bed, loving partner and a great night’s sleep.  Sleeping has been the most significant change that retirement has brought.  Sleep from which you wake serene, drinking in those moments between waking and full consciousness – no more jumping from sleep to fully awake aware of the days worries.

Golden Slumbers 
by Thomas Dekker

Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

Dune grass


Care is heavy, therefore sleep you,
You are care, and care must keep you;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

The day dawned cold (below freezing) and so went out for breakfast and mall walking until mid day when we returned to the trailer for lunch/supper.

Waves on the beach

Full sunshine in areas protected from the wind was warm enough to comfortable sit out, so we picnicked, and began to pick apart the shirts  purchased at the thrift store to make quilt blocks out of.

We walked the beach this evening when the air was warm and comfortable.
