My birthday was on June 7-turn 59. I spend my birthday in Arizona with my grandkids and they draw my own birthday cards. So, in their honor I want to share their creativity.
Are they talented? This grandma is proud to share their drawings and for this prompt it was perfect.

Sitting in my cozy chair I’m officially on vacation mode. Yesterday after goodbyes and tears from our 5th graders who are going next fall to middle school I felt relieved of another successful year. For the ones who doesn’t know me, I’m the cafeteria supervisor (for some people the lunch lady). I take care of feeding 300 students from K-5.
We’ve been selected the best kitchen staff in the school district. Plus, for the last two years, our Principal has been awarded as the best Principal from the state of North Dakota. I can’t complain. There is no question I was waiting anxiously for this day to come. However, I’ll miss the noisy breakfast and the lunch period.
For the next three months I’m going to enjoy every second of my time off, hoping to take care of myself in a better way. Recharging my strength and my mind and sitting on my cozy chair streaming my favorite shows.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “adverb.” Start your post with any adverb and just run with it. Have fun!
Finally, one more week of work and the beginning of my summer vacation. Someone at work asked if I was planning to find a summer job. I told her I don’t need a summer job since I’ve saved money for the nine months I’m been working. I felt she wasn’t to thrill and she made a remark on how much my husband likes to spoil me.
Last night I asked him if I should apply for a summer job. He says we have money saved and he actually likes the idea of me being home. We can go anyplace at any time without me requesting time off from a job. We both are careful with spending when and we go out for dinner twice a month. The only thing I love to spend money is in books, however I’m all set up. I got three Barnes and Nobles gift cards for Mother’s Day and I will visit my public library any time. So, I won’t miss any releases I want to read.
Finally, my husband bought my plane tickets to Arizona to pick up my granddaughters. They’re staying for a month. We are planning a trip to South Dakota in the middle of June and a quick trip to Florida to see my aunt. Who needs a summer job?
To my friend who made the remarks how spoiled I am. Yes, it’s true, I’m spoiled. However, after being married for 35 years we can spoil each other. I’ll enjoy my time with the grandkids, finish some projects, and take care of myself. It will be a great summer vacation.
