Holidailies Intro

I signed up to do Holidailies this year. It's not like I am going away this month and Lord knows I have plenty of catching up to do, so it should force me to actually get some writing done. In practical terms, that means you can expect to see me yammer away every day this month.

It is somewhat traditional to do an intro post, so let me do so. I'm Miriam. I live in Vienna, Virginia. I'm in my early 60's. I retired from 35 years working for the same company, doing satellite systems engineering, in October. Some of the things I do include storytelling, genealogy, solving puzzles, various fiber and paper crafts (but I don't sew), reading, and (in normal times) theatre-going and traveling. I'm also interested in art history and architecture. The only sport I follow is baseball - I am an ardent Red Sox fan and believe the New York Yankees are the Source of All Evil in the Universe. I am a bit obsessed with celebrity deaths and play in a ghoul pool. In these abnormal times, I spend a lot more time playing board games on-line with a group of friends. I don't spend as much time on housework as I should.

I am still adjusting to retirement and realize that I need to establish more of a routine, e.g. getting up at more or less the same time every day, planning meals ahead of time, devoting regular chunks of time to decluttering, etc.

I think I have usually said that I will try to be more interesting the rest of the month. Feel free to help by ask ing questions and suggesting topics for me to write about. This entry was originally posted at https://fauxklore.dreamwidth.org/476786.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
