The advantage to being retired is no schedules. I am as likely to go to bed at 6 pm as I am at midnight. It varies on how I feel. The disadvantage is that you have to get old to get here. LOL

Anne,
The wife and I have taken to an hour nap around 10 PM after the farm and household animals have their food and meds, all dishes washed and dinner over. Tired from the rushing around after work.
It's great. At 11 we awake refreshed, light some candles for The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit and that's the only light in the great room and we find a good movie to enjoy. By 1:30, after prayers, we're fast asleep again but that nap is awesome!
Short naps enable a person to get a second wind. Sounds like you and your wife have a great marriage. Those who pray together stay together.

I do the same thing. I generally sleep no more than a couple of hours at a time, and I have often done household tasks in the wee hours of the morning. You're right. It's too bad one has to age in order to enjoy no schedules. I have been fortunate during my working life, however. Being self-employed for many years enabled me to set my own schedule on a day-to-day basis. I have been blessed in many ways. Now, like you, I enjoy simple things in life....watching wildlife, puttering in the barn, taking care of critter babies, and reading. I intend to savor life until the Good Lord calls me home.

Your home life sounds secure and wonderful! May God richly bless you and yours. On a daily basis I thank Him for the blessings.
Like you, that nap is awesome and I awaken refreshed.

I enjoy watching wildlife also! There's even a bench set out by the chicken yard to watch those crazy birds.. Lol. Recently I attended a retirement party in a subdivision and realized I've become a lot more country than I've been in years...however I held my tongue and didnt mention feeding my cats , dog, chickens, or pond fish lol. Guess I'm just the country cousin!!

Someone's nads are in a volatile state today, so you'd better approach them as though they're a firework about to go bang. It's highly likely that they've been brooding about something, which has made them feel resentful and aggrieved. You may not want to hear what they have to say, especially if it makes you uncomfortable, yet they need to get it out into the open.

I have been up and out since before daylight, stopping by this thread long enough to have fun with the other posters and judges. I live in a rather secluded area and don't communicate with other humans except when I go to the store or to church.

So as long as Topix provides this thread or a similar one and I am able, I will be on here posting my nonsense for my OWN entertainment reagardless of what others may do. And a Good Morning to you.

Sometimes I do get up early but you've got me beat. You seem to be pretty far out in the country and no neighbors. not a bad thing! Topix can be very entertaining..so keep up the "nonsense" AW!
This week I'm keeping the grandchildren and they have entered the "sleeping till noon" phase of their life. I'm thinking I can pull the old Tom Sawyer trick of getting them to paint on the fence, well chicken coop in my case.
