We’re in the New York Times!

On August 23, I read this call for comments:

What Are Your ‘Non-Negotiables?’

A daily walk? Meditation? Or something sweet at 2 p.m.? The Times wants to know what you prioritize each day — and why.

Read the rest of the callout here.

I wrote about what Jonathan and I do every day, just for fun. It was used in the article that appeared on Saturday. This is the excerpt about us:

At 6 p.m. every day, my husband of 39 years makes popcorn, I make tea, and then we sit down and play gin rummy, five hands, so there has to be a winner. Our competition is fierce, we play avidly to the last moment. The winner gloats and cheers. Five minutes later, neither of us can remember who won.

— Winifred Creamer, Eureka, Calif.

I’m happy we could share our moment of fun. The photo was taken one afternoon when Jonathan wanted to sit outside and I thought it was a bit chilly. I overdressed just a bit.

Here is the entire article.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.

  1. What a great ritual you two have! Of course the NYT included it in their article. You two are an inspiration for how to keep your life vibrant and fun. 💕
