Vacation Time!

I'm excited! Today I start a 3-1/2 week vacation. I think I deserve it too. On Monday I returned to work after a 2-week vacation and I worked darn hard to cram and get things organized at work so I could go on vacation again. It was a fast 4 days and I was an hour late getting out of there.

Tomorrow morning I'll drive to the cottage in New York state and the weather is supposed to be great for a change. Today is the real first summery day I think we've had from start to finish! I'm so looking forward to this.

Once I am able to transfer some pics this weekend (the cord is at the cottage) I'll show you where we're going next week on vacation.. yipee..

I do have these lovely roses to show that grow by the shed at the cottage.

and my lavender is doing nicely beside the hosta and rudenbeckia. Maybe this weekend its flowers will have opened.
Marc will be at a Golf Tournament closeby on Saturday and following that I join them for prize giveaways and dinner! It'll be fun. Maybe I'll galavant while he's golfing...hmmmmm..
Have a lovely weekend. Judi xoxo

Lucky you! How is it you get so much vacation time??

I only have about 26 hours worth right now. Won't have enough for a decent vacation until end of October. Waaaa.....

We really are lucky with our vacation. After a year with the College we are entitled to 15 days of vacation. I believe after 5 years is when they add on a day a year. I've been there fulltime for 24 years so I'm up to 29 days. Next year I'll be at the max which is 30 days.

I also take minutes at meetings and because they are after hours they accumulate as time and a half lieu time.

I always end up saving vacation time and then the new lot comes up so this year I had 29 days plus 11.5 days from last year and 3 lieu days.

Its hard to get back to work in the end though....
