“She started this blog and she just stopped cooking!” I heard my husband say as I passed the door of his study.
“Think she likes blogging better,” my daughter responded.
Ah, the wisdom of youth! Yes, I do like writing better. In fact the list of things I like better than cooking is long. It includes: eating, sleeping, exercising and reading. I’d rather be spending time with friends, binge-watching The Crown, wine tasting in the valley, hanging out on the couch with my dogs or talking to my daughter on the phone.
It would be less than sincere to say that I like everything about aging, but it is absolutely true that I am happier now than I have ever been. One of the things I like most is that I have the time to do (or not) as I please. That is a blessing!
I’m sure I’ve become a bit more selfish with my time…but, the clock is ticking! NOW is such a good time! My daughter is happy, my husband is retired, my friends are inspiring, my home and my pink shed are beautiful and my health is good. I’m enjoying my 50’s.
Gotta go now. I’m taking my husband shopping in the prepared meals section at Whole Foods.
Have a great day!
