There is a liberation associated with not have to work anymore. If I were fired today we'd be just fine. With our health issues recently it is cheaper (and easier) to keep employment insurance, so I continue working. But I don't need to work.

Hopefully what others have said about "don't know how I had time for a job" after they retire will apply to me. So far it isn't, but we do have our health issues (resolving), and the pandemic, so it likely isn't representative of the future.

In about another month it will cool off enough that I can do some outside projects (like finishing electrifying the pergola, and refinishing the front door). But that list is finite. Certainly not enough to fill 20 or 30 more years.
