This is a totally daughter dependent blog today. I took the mitts and hats to DD's house after church this morning, but she had just awakened and it didn't seem fair to make her model my goods at that time. We visited, I got lots of grandkids time and then I left, forgetting my camera. Poor Chrissie lugged my goods and my camera and her kids and husband, he came - wasn't lugged, to our retirement party tonight, so that I could get a picture of her in my - goods. She's such a good girl. She took also pictures of her own and posted them on her blog here.
We became officially retired at 5:30 tonight, exactly when our party started at Silver Peak Brewery. Together Ian and I have 40 years of combined library experience. I cannot think of a greater retirement present than to be with these wonderful people this evening, both retired and still working. We have made some rich friendships, lo these many years. I cannot believe how many people came out to celebrate our passage, accomplishment, retirement - whatever. We have crossed over to the other side.
I did hem my towels today and am planning a warp that I'll need to dye. That's how I plan to kick off my first official day of retirement - dyeing a warp and weft. Move over work life. Your time is up.
