Susie, that struck me as well - we all do lots of creative things. I just always need to be busy with my hands and I love the joy of creating things, whether it's cards, a beautiful flower garden, vegetables to pick and cook, or a knitted sweater.

I have friends who are still working because they don't know what they'd do if they retired - whereas I retired as soon as I could because there was so much I wanted to do other than work. It's very sad to think of those people who have nothing in their loves except work.

And just a nice thing to consider for those who havenít retired yet, you wonít believe how rich your time with get when you have more hours in your week to create. Itís a wonderful time of life.
