Retirement at last.
Today is the first day of my retirement. It is a happy bitter sweet day. We did not do allot of work yesterday but at day's end when I said goodbye to some of the NB Power guys I have had the pleasure to work with over the years (10) it was sad to say goodbye and get big hugs form them. They wished me luck and to stay busy. I will miss getting up in the mornings and going to work with Dave. I will miss being with him the most. We always worked together and now he will have different partners to work with. I almost cried when we emptied the car of my coats, gloves, my hat and vests that I used. It will be different for awhile until I get use to this new way of life. It's been along time in coming.
I took Dave out to Swiss Chalet for supper last night to celebrate. We don't drink so we had root beer each. Dave usually has a large glass of milk and I have tea. The food and the service was good. We did manage to arrive and finish before the crowds started to show up. There was along line up when we left.
Well, I did get a surprise on Friday when we got home. I joined the tea cup exchange and there on my door step was my gift from Linda Shukri from Prince Edward Island. I must go and visit her if she is a mind to have me. We live so close to each other. Province wise that is. Here is what I got from my new sweet friend. I do so love everything she sent and I especially love the cup and saucer.
I was gifted with chocolates, some jam and some black tea with Melissa and Mint. I am going to try some as soon as I post this blog.
I have been knitting on scarves and have two on the go right now. I did another one and sent to my friend Reba in North Carolina. She was surprised and delighted with her gifts. I just told her I was sending a surprise envelope and she got it last week. I sent a parcel to Andrea in Greece and I hope she gets hers soon and lets me know how she liked her scarf. I do love making them and plan to make allot.
