My African Violet is blooming once again.
When I used to travel much more than I do now, the plant would survive for two to three months, but there would be no blooms. I'm home now, checking the soil every day and, and of course, talking very nicely to her. She pays me back with beautiful blooms.
I have more house plants in a large basket that need to be separated. I'm looking forward to a warm day so that I can do the re-potting outside on the patio where I can more easily sweep up the mess I will surely make. Buried in that big basket is another African Violet. I have no idea what color it is so I look forward to solving that mystery. ;)
Ah, yes, flowers!

OK, more food again. ;) We haven't changed much at all after retirement.
That's Catherine, the grillmeister when it comes to turkey on the grill.

Now that we're retired, we can decide when we want to go out and where we want to go.
Last weekend, however, we went out driving around in the rain so we could go to our Labrador Retriever luncheon at Belterra Casino.
The club picked a great place for the annual dinner to see friends and where the food was yummy and the slots paid me to be there. ;)

Last weekend was a chilly one in Cincinnati. Penny sleeps on our bed and likes to be covered so I often put an extra sheet over her when she is sleeping at the bottom of the bed.
Penny is a sweet old soul. She'll be 12 at the end of this month; that's 84 in human years.
There is nothing like the love of such a sweet old dog.

Here we are in the middle of January and there are already signs of Spring.
We will be home to see the Iris bloom this year!

Last night we enjoyed the perfect winter dinner.
Catherine made potato soup and I made fresh bread. We ate soup by the cup full with hunks of bread as we watched TV together.
Ah, yes, retirement is good.
