I finished work on Thursday, June 9th. Packed up my kitchen, took my toys and magnets home and bid adieu till the end of August. It feels great! I love now having my own time to do what I want and when I want to. Like sleeping in. No more setting the alarm. Ahhh, that is such a lovely pleasure. Friday, I slept till 9am and then my hubby took me to breakfast to celebrate.
I celebrated turning 61, at the end of May and my family threw me a Finding Dory party! I am a sucker for anything Disney and my youngest did a great job planning my party. Lots of wonderful and thoughtful gifts and this year I chose my main gift myself. I have wanted to convert my old VHS home movies to DVD for so many years, and have never wanted to send them out. I couldn't bear the thought of them being lost. So we bought me a VHS to DVD dubber! It works great, and I have spent many hours happily revisiting my little ones. Now my memories will be safely on DVD format to last for many years. And I can make copies for my girls. :)
So now, I am looking forward to working in my gardens. I bought my flowers for all my patio pots last week. Youngest and I had a fabulous time at the Pink Grizzly Nursery. So many plants and too many choices....LOL I am going with pink Geraniums, yellow Marigolds and purple Lobelia. I will have other pots throughout the yard too, with Begonias, Cosmos, Moss Roses, and Impatiens and Zinnias! That will be my happy "chore" tomorrow morning. I put my tunes on (I have outdoor speakers) and start creating my pots. I think that means the start of vacation the most to me. Well, I am off to watch an Indy car race, and eat some chicken. And sit with my feet up and maybe even stay up late. Cause I am on vacation. :) Always, Kit
