It's just been 6 days since I retired and it's amazing how much I've gotten done around the yard and in the house.

Today I put the final 3 bags of mulch in the aviary. It makes a big difference in the area. As I was digging up the peppermint I put some in 5 pots and have them next to the bee hives. I'm going to bury them in the ground so they don't need so much water. I've had to water them every morning.

I moved another bush out from around the pond. It should be much happier where it was moved to - more sun and not crowded by other plants. 3 more plants to move and then I can mulch that area.

Today's cardio was mowing and trimming the lawn.

I totally forgot that today was the day before a holiday and went to the grocery store. All I needed was eggs and to stock up on the cat food I'll need while I'm away. Once I got there and saw all the cars, people, and lack of shopping carts I remembered. So I put my "Be Patient and Smile" hat on and got my few items. Only took 45 minutes!

Good news! DD got the job she interviewed for. She starts next week and will make an additional $8.35 per hour. That's huge!

    WooHooOOOoooOOOoooOOOoooooooo... ... ...!! EXCELLENT NEWS for your DD!!
    You are my heroine, Ms Jocy. I *love* how you're checking off your days since you retired with things you want to get done. Yep, I mowed another 2.5 acres, on top of vacuuming/dusting, dishes, cleaning one of two bathrooms, and a bit of wall/window washing yesterday.

    This morning, I've already thrown 2-rack of ribs in the oven (before they're grilled for BBQ) and I'm getting ready to whip up some deviled eggs. Have a GREAT weekend!!
