I would spend my time conducting Bible studies on a personal in home arrangement.  I have been doing this on a part-time volunteer basis for years but would love to do so on a full-time schedule.

Junk becomes Art in my perfect retirement

Your junk is my creativity...
I enjoy taking things that are thrown away or put in scrape books 
and turn them into artwork.  
One idea: 
Live aboards have library cards from the different ports they have visited...
take these cards and some other items they may have collected along the way,
then create a mobile/wind chime that can be displayed for their enjoyment. 
This idea can also be used with items from vacations.

I started scrapbooking when I retired seven years ago and love the creativity I'm able to put into my projects.  I've started a genealogy book that encourages me to contact other family members for pictures and information.  I also enjoying volunteering for local agencies in need of help.  My next adventure?  Quilting.  I've signed up for a class and looking forward to learning a new craft and meeting new friendsCool

My retirement dream is to write a novel (or several)...remember Tom Sellick in "Her Alibi?" His upstairs writer's den with the window looking out at the beautiful view is exactly how I picture it. My incredible wife and I would then take the proceeds from the book sales and donate to a number of charities.

I have so many hobbies already (knitting, spinning, reading, writing, gardening, hiking, travel) but would love more time for all of them.  Also more time to volunteer, which I used to do more often but as a parent working full time am running out of hours in the day.  I do some charity knitting for hospitals and also prayer shawls for my church.  Mostly I'm excited to have more time to learn things.

Volunteering.  I did it when I was working.  Now I have more time and I love giving back.
