Yesterday was a busy day. First, I dropped my husband off at work for one of his rare days in the office and one of his final days at work! He’s retiring.
Then I did my volunteer shift at the Museum of Flight. I left a bit early in order to attend the retirement ceremony for my former supervisor. It was good to see many former co-workers… I’ve been retired for 5 1/2 years already!
Once the ceremony and visiting was over, about 1600, I still had 2 more hours until my husband was ready to leave work. I former work place and his current one are the same, though we had very different jobs. We both worked for the VA Puget Sound (Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration).
I’d brought my sketch bag as I planned to sketch the new Healing Garden.
After I retired there was a major renovation of the Emergency Room area. A small outdoor space between buildings had always existed and the renovation included turning that area into a small garden. It was after sunset and the light was fading. It was also cold. But I managed to get a drawing done. It was a peaceful, meditative end to a busy day.
The medical building towers over it at the back.
