Another School Year is Complete!
I can't believe it! I am still expecting to have to go into work tomorrow and whip up some delicious meals for my kidlets. But no, ~ it is Summer Vacation! That is one of the reasons that I just adore my job. I started working for the school district when my kids were in middle school, mainly so I could be home when they were home. I always said the best job I ever had was being a Mom and now I also get to be "Mom" to 160 high schoolers. It is a fantastic place to work and I hope I can do it, forever! Anyway, tearful good-byes were said yesterday and now I am "free" to do all the little things I can't fit in, the rest of the year. I earn my keep by painting and repairing, and taking care of all the yard work. (A perfect arrangement since I don't mind doing any of those things) I started my first day off with sleeping in, (heaven) a visit with my cat and then a leisurely breakfast while checking Facebook. Then out came the records! I just love musicals and I use the summer to re-listen to all my old vinyls. First up? Carnival! To those wonderful tunes one can do all the chores in a household with a big smile and in "record" time.....LOL Did some painting on a new door for our new garage and then off to see my youngest to start buying our flowers for our container gardens. We had a blast! So many plants, not enough room! Million Bells, Geraniums, Begonias, Marigolds and Zinnias. Lovely. Well, I am burning daylight as they say, so off I go. I think I can get at least one container filled before the sun sets. How about a mixture of impatiens, coleus, and begonias?
