ARE YOU READY FOR THE WEEKEND?
I'm sure ready. It's been a rough week and I'm looking forward to having a couple -- make that three -- days off. I have so much time off this month it's ridiculous. But nice.
Yesterday was my late day and so I didn't get home until 8:30 p.m. At least I had slept in. In fact I slept in too much and slept right through my alarm. Oops! I was really tired when I got in and so Joe called out for dinner. I got a sour cream and chives baked potato that was very good except they forgot to put the chives on. So I guess I really just had a sour cream baked potato. Ha, ha.
Today, being Friday, it wasn't too bad at work. Most times Friday is our slowest day. Oh, we have little spurts of activity but nothing like a regular week day. Next week the kids go back to school and then we will be getting back into our regular schedule with after school programs and homework help. I'll be glad to see Tasha (our after school program coordinator) back. The city really does have a great program for the kids.
If you noticed, I've changed my retirement countdown at the bottom of the page. If I can get all of my paperwork together, I am planning on retiring on November 30. We'll see how that works out. I might have to stay a little longer until the end of the pay period on December 4. But the end is in sight. My health is deteriorating, I am working hard to help Joe with his sermons and the church bulletin, getting both of our studies together, and running around with doctor appointments for both of us. It will be tight money wise for a few months, but all will be well.
Friday is my early day so when I got home from work I changed the flowers in my outside pot and hung my autumn wreath on the front door. I changed the flowers on my fireplace stove from summer wild daisies to autumn sunflowers. I think they look nice. I will take better pictures of the outside tomorrow when the sun is shining.
We had honey ham steaks, green beans, and parsley mashed potatoes for dinner. And we had some ice cream for dessert.
Tomorrow I am planning on working on the kitchen. Hopefully I will get it finished and take some pictures of the fall decorations for you. I love getting my house all clean and decorated with golds, oranges, reds and browns. I think what I love most about fall is the fabulous colors I see. And yes, I know it's still summer. I'm just getting a jump start things because I know I won't have the time later.
So now it's time to wind down and get ready for bed and hopefully some sleep tonight. See everyone tomorrow.
