Finally got some work this week. It actually feels good. It gives me some structure and purpose. As much as I hated being chained to a desk in an office for years, the complete freedom of retirement is not quite as wonderful as it promised to be. I'm not complaining, really, but I think it would be different if I had money to burn. Spending three or four months in a warm climate is possible if one has both the freedom and the cash, unless of course, one lives in a warm climate.
But we are planning a trip before winter is over. It won't be to a warmer climate, maybe slightly milder, but not warm. More on that latter.
For now, a few grant applications and a report will keep me busy for a week.
