Leon has been retired one year now. It seems like the time has just flown by in nothing flat.
His routine is about the same each day. He gets up early - somewhere between 5 and 6:30 - drinks his coffee and reads the Bible and the newspaper.
Then he goes to the garage or out in the yard - depending on the weather and the time of the year. He has been building different things with the landscape timber recently so he is spending alot of time in the garage. Now that warmer weather is just around the corner, he will be working in the yard or the vegetable garden.
Noon time - lunch - which is our main meal of the day.
Then most afternoons he naps for a while.
After nap time - sometimes he goes back out to piddle around. Other days, he watches television.
Night time - watch televsion - snooze in the recliner -snack. Then in bed by 10:00.
Now this schedule is not set in stone by any means. There are days he goes fishing, trips into Lowe's or what ever may take priority that particular day.
I can say with all my heart that I have enjoyed his being home very, very much. He has not got in my way of doing anything I wanted to do...if you know what I mean. There are times I drop what I am doing (never anything very important anyway) to go with him. We had spent so much time apart during the first 9 years of our marriage we certainly enjoy each others company!
I pray the Lord will grant us many more years to enjoy our retirement together!
