“The greatest thing about where my life is right now is it’s very relaxed and chill. I’m just hanging out, being myself and doing my job.” ~ Lucas Grabeel. Seems we have a lot in common because I feel exactly the same!
The midweek word-prompt over on Weekly Prompts is ‘Just Chillin’ and this week it was written by GC.
The original link over there was incorrect, rectified below, we apologise if you attempted to take part in the prompt.
This is my response to the prompt.
Since I retired my whole life is one big chill, well, if I don’t count the chores, but even they aren’t a hardship, there’s something immensely satisfying about looking back at what one has just accomplished.
I don’t read books very often these days, and that’s because I’m constantly aware there is some other task/chore waiting for my attention, and if I pick up a book with the intention of reading in bed, I can guarantee I’ll be asleep by the third page.
Strange how I never feel guilty when I sit down at my computer. Perhaps in the recesses of my mind, I think of the computer as work-related, which is hardly surprising seeing as computing and teaching was my life for a good number of years.
Creation is my pleasure; I adore experimenting with photographs, videos, artwork, and audio, finding out what can be achieved.
I enjoy walking by the lakeside, taking photographs of wildlife and simply enjoying the moment, I often become lost in my thoughts, though it does worry me that one of these days the conversations I have in my head will end up being said out loud!
Sitting upstairs on my balcony with a cup of morning coffee, afternoon tea or a glass of wine in the evening whilst watching the sheep with their lambs and cows with their calves is one of my most pleasant chill-out moments, providing, of course, it doesn’t rain, this is after all England!
I spend a lot of time in the company of my youngest two daughters, we enjoy days out together, often exploring the historical. I’m usually the driver, which means the journeys we make aren’t quite as relaxing for me as they are for my passengers.
Another of my pleasures is meeting up with my friends, which is something I do frequently, either for morning coffee or lunch in one of the nearby restaurants.
Finally, blogging needs to be added to the list. For me, it has become quite the happy little pastime, though I try not to publish too many in any one week, I have no wish to bombard your inbox to the extent where it becomes intrusive.
