Yes indeedie I've been quiet. The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of report cards, awards assemblies, passing out the yearbook, going to retirement parties, and the final day of school. So now I've had 3 official days off and am working on some pictures for shows and posting in Etsy. It's great to have some time and not feel stressed about not having 'enough weekend' .
A friend wrote this morning and said she just retired. How did we get here? The 70's is not a distant memory to me and it's hard to believe that we're now at our albeit early retirements.
anyway summer is a tad like retirement and after we get more things put where they belong and organized, home will be more like home and time will be there for fun things.
On our list for the summer....
Carowinds water park. (can you say Lazy River?)
National Whitewater Center (rafting!)
Michigan for a month to see lots of old friends
The Gathering --with a booth to sell beads
Myrtle Beach in August (I hope!)
This is a summer to relax and play and we are so happy about it because the last three summers have been painting and packing and listing our house in Michigan, searching for a house here, getting ready for new jobs, learning about this area. It's great to finally be a a more comfortable summer. I'll bet it will fly by fast!
The flower bead above? I made it two days ago and posted it on Etsy yesterday.
