I am now retired!

I had my last day of work yesterday. After 26 years in the field, I am now retired. Since I worked in schools, and have the summer off (without pay!) every year, it won't feel real til September 1, when I don't have to get up and go sit in boring meetings. And it'll be great when it's snowing or snow is in the the forecast, and I'm waiting for the text. And when it's raining and I just don't want to get out of bed. 

We went to Julianna's recital earlier this month! She was in 3 dances, and did a wonderful job! She's in the air right now with Heather, Ed and Eddie headed to Ft Myers to visit her other grandparents. 

 These guys are getting so big! Garrett wanted that cake so bad- right after the pic was taken he was yelling and reaching for it. He's pulling himself up on everything and standing. Amary is going to be 3 next month! 

I have so much that I want to do! The temperature afghan is now done except for weaving in ends and adding a border. The farm fair afghan is done and given to Barbara. But the project that I'll start tomorrow is cleaning and organizing the kitchen. I know there's a table under there somewhere!

And maybe I can post more often!

I'm still here!

 Here's one of the things keeping me busy. It will be a raffle item for the Burlington County Farm Fair.

 Andy my temperature afghan is still in progress! It'll go til the end of this month. 

I have 9 more work days to go, then I'm retired! Yay! 26 years in this job, and I'm done, done, done. And maybe then I'll have more time to blog! 

I read a really good book from the library. Troublemaker, by Linda Howard. It has a great dog character, a golden retriever named Tricks. It's a romantic suspense novel, and just came out. 

I haven't done any cross stitch or quilting, because the star afghan has a deadline, and I'm getting tired of the temp afghan, so I want to get it done!

And it's June!
