It's Official!

Last day of school was today! It is officially summer vacation and more official for me, my last day at work. Officially starting tomorrow, I now join the ranks of the happily retired!

Crank up your speakers!

Now for the next chapter in my life... a couple of weeks here then off to Nova Scotia for a month. I will definitely blog from that trip and post photos here. After that, the world is my oyster. Hmmm, maybe I need to start liking oysters!

It's a lovely Thursday in the neighborhood...

 Today I am...
  • Appreciating that I had an extra personal leave day I could take off to get a boatload of errands taken care of, including getting a new vacuum cleaner!
  • Excited to see the progress of our little straw bale vegetable garden and thankful that my husband put in the hard work to get it started.
  • Realizing that I need to clean out the fridge so I can plan my meals better.
  • Giddy at the prospect of being retired by the end of next week.
  • Getting excited about my upcoming trip to Nova Scotia.
  • Thinking how much I love the bedroom being so free of clutter and getting excited about decluttering the rest of the house.
  • Thinking about what I want this blog to become as my time is freed up in retirement.
  • Excited to go to Leslie's this weekend and do more art!
I saw this "Today I am... " idea on THIS blog and liked it so decided to make my own list! I look forward to having time when I retire to catch up on all the blogs I have added to Feedly and bookmarked... lots of interesting stuff happening out in the blogosphere that I have not been reading.

The heat is on!

It is going to be 100 degrees today... yikes! And it is only the middle of May!

On the up side... only 11 more working days until retirement! Yay!

And in the garden...
