Indulging our affections
Mary Muncil in her wonderful blog http://whitefeatherfarm.wordpress.com/ used the phrase "indulging our affections" and it struck a chord with me. Sometimes I feel guilty when spending time just playing with the cats or when I just can't stop my quilting. Well, no more--I am indulging my affections. DH is helping me indulge my rose affection/addiction; he is making a new rose bed for me. We have the new Edmunds Rose catalog http://www.edmundsroses.com/ and how easy it is to indulge my affections there!! Another affection to indulge is bird watching; Thanksgiving week we are going birding down the Texas Gulf Coast to Corpus Christi and on down to Brownsville. What a wonderful indulgence. I think that is what I am enjoying so much about retirement--I have time to indulge my affections.
