OMG! I am having such fun selling eggs and Avon at the senior center. It seems that everyone wants a book. I think I might have an Avon party at my house. I don't know what all I will be serving but deviled eggs and lemon curd tarts [from my mayer lemon tree] will definitely be on the menu. Not to worry. I will not be sneaking worms from my worm farm into anything.

EXCELLENT idea for a thread.

Reasons to be happy:

1.) 771 days until my 65th birthday -- the FIRST opportunity to retire.
2.) 984 days until 27 years in the state pension. May take the early out - see #1.

Finally coming to a point in my work life where I can delegate, delegate, delegate. Before? It was all me.

I hope to skate to the end......


OOOPs... just thought of another:

3.) FOOTBALL IS BACK!! GO PACK GO!!

Thursday- arrived at beach
Friday- poured rain all day at beach
Saturday- Clearing and windy with fireworks at night
Sunday- Incredible
Monday/Today- Incredible
Tuesday- Return from beach

Having a place at the beach in retirement with time to enjoy- Priceless.

DH & I went online yesterday to book our favorite NM vacation rental for a fall 2017 stay. Their calendar showed it already booked. It's the only place we're sure we'd be comfortable for an entire month so without it the trip is a no-go.

Today we discovered that the booking is ours! Turns out when we sent a query awhile back about the current rates, the property mgr blocked out the month for us. She emailed us this morning to remind us to send the deposit. ~ doing a happy dance~
