A post on Nancy’s blog AND events the last couple weeks and those over the last few years have me thinking about how I want to spend my time, where I want to travel, and what unfinished business I have. I don’t have a list … but it’s something I need to give more thought to. We’ve had a number of deaths in the family/extended family in the last 4 years and most of them in our age group – give or take a few years. After each one, we talk about how valuable our remaining time is and that we shouldn’t waste it and then we seem to slip back into our routine and think we have all the time in the world left.
My health this year prevented me from doing some of the things I wanted, I didn’t quilt as much or travel as much as I like to but we did sell our Big Canoe condo knowing it would give us more flexibility in the future. That was a big step forward and we were able to keep our plans to be here in Maine. I’ve got my will rewritten … it’s not perfect – I used an online site to do it and eventually I’d like to tweak it some but it’s updated and way better than the old outdated version and I just need to get it printed and signed when I get home and we’ll use the same format to update Keith’s.
Mom and Kevin left this morning and I was thrilled to have them here for a visit. The drive wasn’t particularly easy for them, the quirky cottage a bit of a challenge, and she’s not a fan of cold weather (40’s and 50’s are cold for her!) but she’s always wanted to visit New England and I think she had a great time!
Yesterday, we went on a harbor cruise and then had dinner on the water. I’m so glad we had this time together.
