In retrospect, I asked for that, and they certainly fit the description...

There is no such thing as too much time on one's hand...especially when one is having fun!

I thought it was about having more time for one's priorities!

Reducing the stress while doing it too .

The weather was PERFECT today, probably the best day of the year. Sunny without a cloud in the sky, cool, and pleasant.

And since I am retired, I didn't have to spend the whole day in a stuffy indoor cubicle with sealed windows! Spent all day either outside, or inside with the doors and windows open.

Ok, Life is good! Not FIRE'd yet, but enjoying life.

Spent most of Monday @ Como Zoo and Como Town with DW, DD, and DS.

Basic zoo with amusement rides and face painting. Packed a picnic to make it a full day.

Como Town Amusement Park :: Family Amusement Park - interactive rides, roller coasters, birthday parties, free zoo & More!

In true LBYMs fashion got a 2 for 1 coupon for the unlimited ride bands, so it was a fairly inexpensive full day before start of school for the kiddies.

Here too, sunny skies and cool breezes. Been out and about with DW most of the time. At home, AC turned off with all the windows open, perfect sleeping weather. Life is good...

Uplifting, yes. Dunno about the rest.
