I have come down with a cold. I hung in there today to help C. with decorating the house. Then I met my engine maintenance instructor at the boat because he wanted to see her. And after that I went rowing with the team.
The latter probably wasn't too smart, but it felt good to pull on the oars and to be with this group of people that I haven't seen in nearly two months due to my Wednesday night class. Everyone is looking forward to the Christmas parade of boats in which we will be rowing the pilot gigs. Saturday morning we will spend a few hours decorating the boats for the evening parade. I hope that I am feeling better to do all of that.
I have done all that I can for today. It has been another full day. Tonight one of the rowers asked if I wondered how I ever worked at a job with all the things that I do. I wonder that myself. I am definitely staying busy. Not much time to laze around for sure. Tomorrow promises to be another busy day.
It is truly amazing how there is so much to occupy my time, when I was worried that I would not feel fulfilled being retired. I am more than fulfilled. I am not just in recovery, but I am in discovery of all that life has to offer. That is really an astounding thing.
