About Me

Hi, my name is Laura Smith.  aka athelenerose; aka Tutu

I’ve been blogging for about a year and spent 2017 on a journey of rediscovery to find out how I wanted to spend my spare time in my retirement years. I learned my interests are varied and many. I am looking forward to spending more time with family and friends, writing, hiking, taking pictures, volunteering, and, a surprise to me, cooking and being a homemaker. I also enjoy gardening, and another surprise, bird watching. As an active 65-year-old woman, I have no intention of sitting on the porch swing watching the world go by. As I step from one life into another, one thing I know for sure, I won’t be bored.
