Response to Brainstormy (Original post)

30. Husband and I call it, "Going out into the world"

We're retired. He has things he does each week that get him out. I'm always grocery shopping or heading to the library. I meet up with a group of people who sew for a really long lunch about once a month. So we are out. But it's obvious that it's way less than in years past - even when we were retired.

We also have people come to mow, shovel snow and garden for us. They usually stop to say hello, get instructions or grab a cuppa. So we do see all kinds of people out of the house and here.

When we had our kitchen remodeled we had so many people coming and going that we started to keep track of the different guys. Turned out that we had over 30 different trades guys here as the job progressed. A banner year for interaction!
