Sheets of music notes, a clarinet, a piano…
My new retirement adventure for 2015 was
bringing back my childhood enthusiasm for playing music.
I have always loved music, although took a,
well, a many, many year hiatus from playing an instrument.
First came the piano, then came the clarinet.
It was very exciting to me that all of my knowledge,
tucked away for so many years came leaping out.
So, what will 2016 bring..
More music, knitting, sewing, gardening, and retirement adventures.
Happy New Year to You!

I have taken up knitting in my retirement, it is enjoyable, and there are so many types of yarn to pick and choose from. It is also mobile; I can take a bag of yarn and needles with me to a local cafe, or onto the back porch in the sun, or to the living room in front of the fire. Relax and enjoy.
Although, I continually find myself applying sewing to my knitting projects. So, I have given in and am sewing some fun Holiday projects. I find myself getting lost in the fabric stores, a fantasy land of colors and textures anxiously waiting to become a fun creation.
Yes, I have retired from the brick and mortar, although I can not retire my mind and the creativity in my heart and soul.

The fall weather rolling in, leaves are changing, thoughts spiral and spin in my head. Thinking of knitting by a cozy fire while the snow falls outside. I begin to wonder, what yarn to pick, what colors to pick; and hmmm… I wonder what it would be like to spin my own yarn?
