I got up early this morning to go swimming. It was glorious. Monday's are so crowded when the pool opens at mid-day, early morning is an especially good option.  Today there were very few people in the pool. It was lovely and quiet and focused.  It's truly a wonderful way to kick off the day.

This time last year, I was in a job funk.  I was finishing a project that I'd been on for more than a year. It was a flawed project and stressful.  I was glad it was over and ready to move on to something else.  Only it turned out, I would find out before the end of the month that there was nothing else, I was laid off.

Last night I looked at journal entries from July of last year and even before I got the news I was thinking of quitting.  The end of July was the end of the job.  I never really got serious about finding another job.  I set out to be retired.  It's been an interesting year. Not a really amazing year but, honestly, I've got zero to complain about.

I'm not sure what today will bring.  It's still such a luxury to have all the time I want to do whatever I want. I have knitting and reading and TiVo and, if it doesn't get too hot, I might even walk up the street to one of the new restaurants for lunch.  There's no more baseball until Friday.  Usually, I find the All Star break annoying but this year, I'm grateful for the break.

Right this minute, I think I'm going to finish my coffee over a mindless computer game.  Because I can.
