  3. Listen to an audiobook. While knitting.
    Audio all the light  Audio cabin pressure  Audio amazing adventures
    My most recent listens. The middle one, Cabin Pressure, is a delightful BBC radio programme.

  4. Knit on the deck.

  5. Lie abed in the mornings with my iPad — check my email, catch up on Twitter, do a few jigsaw puzzles, ditto a few crosswords. Play iPad Boggle with Smokey when he wakes up.

    Very, very little.

 

* As a retiree, I find that pretty much every day/week/month is a staycation. So these are my regular fun activities.

    Lucky you! Great ideas, too.

    I think you’ve perfected staycation/retirement activities. I love your deck knitting spot and heartily concur with Cabin Pressure. I resisted listening to the series finale for a long time, but finally gave in and thought it was done perfectly. John Finnemore is a comic genius!

    Im so glad you mentioned that retirement is a stay cation. That sums up my wonderful life right now!
    I want to work or volunteer with tourism I think.
    I heard all the light you cannot see is very long…is it good?

    So, if you want to knit the first Odd One — where do you get the face?

    Hear! hear! I’m retired too …and it’s so much fun to enjoy a daily “staycation!” And I enjoyed yours; thx for sharing!
    Cheers~

    *sigh* Retirement is so very, very far away. Your eternal staycation sounds pretty awesome.
