Not looking for pity here. Just telling it like it is for me at 73. In the warm seasons it is quite lovely out on this back road. But lonely too in the winter. Especially as I choose not to drive much in the winter or anytime really. I knew the best place for me would be in a village where I could walk to shops. Something like Orleans on Cape Cod with a bookstore and cafes and grocery stores all within walking distance of some of the in-town condos.
But as is my way I hesitated. The upside is I can provide a home for my son in this difficult rental market. The down side is I can go days and days seeing no one except my son and Maddie.
Believe me I have thought of just about every option and tried some and oh well, none seemed to manifest for me. So I'll have to renew my campaign to keep myself amused. But right now, its spring, the rhododendron is blossoming, I have a few tomato plants in the garden, I'm painting the kitchen wall and I walk 2.3 miles three days a week.
Hello to all of you I knew before when we all blogged and nice to meet you to all my new readers. Hope to show up here again soon. Love, Suki
