What is a Weekend?


I have had many people tell me that once retired, weekends are hard to distinguish from weekdays.

That may be true, but as I have just experienced my first true retired weekend I noticed one thing that sets it apart from weekdays: local activities. Yesterday, for instance, Chris and I found two artisan gatherings to visit and enjoy. These are weekend occurrences and I realized that I need to do a better job scouring the internet for local weekend activities. 

I have to admit, I am looking forward to playing golf during the week--which may also be a big difference from when I used to have to golf on weekends. Hopefully, before the end of January Chris and I will be on the golf course again smacking the little white, or brightly colored, balls around to either increase or decrease our frustration. 

And so, weekends still exist--just differently. At least that is my observation from week one of retirement.
