This evening I submitted my Intent to Retire letter. Feels a little like jumping off a high-dive board and trusting that the water will be deep enough where you are headed.
Today Doc went to school and I went to the Penny Palace.
The Landscapers continued to put in plants - including those Clivias from my neighbor and the irises from my mom. The waterfall was tested and fine-tuned.
The painters acid-washed the front garage to prepare it for the epoxy coating.
I painted, caulked, and cleaned.
The landscape crew left and by 4:30 I locked up the house. As I was leaving, Cabinet John arrived with the drawer he had modified. Now the drawer clears the gas regulator under the cooktop.
I dashed out to arrive at the post office 5 minutes before they closed. Needed to mail out our income tax packages.
It had been three days since I had shopped at Home Depot, so it was time. Got a few supplies, but no coins.
I was nearly home and realized I had no coins for today. I pulled into a closed car wash station. I uttered a desperate SingSong: “PLEASE Penny Angels won’t you come out to play?” I immediately found a penny, then a second one. At the other side of the station there were three more pennies in separate locations.
Five minutes ago I submitted my Letter of Intent to Retire. I will not be returning to CPP at the end of this Leave of Absence. The Penny Palace is keeping me way too busy to also hold a job. It insists upon my full-time attention!
Total: 5 Pennies
