I’m going out of town on vacation to a beautiful Bed & Breakfast I looked up online. I love the whole experience of these places, much more so than any hotel. The owners are extremely nice and actually cook you real food versus the hotels who serve you microwaved food. Also, these places have a more interesting history to them, like the Lizzie Borden B&B, which I plan to visit next.
I told my friend that she and her husband could stay at my place while I’m gone, but it’s mostly to watch my pets. They told me they’d like to have a get together with their friends outside, so I already rolled out my Black & Decker EM 1500 electric lawn mower and got right to work. It is a breeze to use and I’m so glad I don’t have to smell gas anymore. It’s slightly more work to use with the cord, but I just use the cord reel to reel it back in when I’m done.
It feels good that I have the yard looking nice for my friend to host her party. And I’m also thankful that my mower is so very easy to use and fast, so I can have more time to pack. She refused to take money, so I’m going to stock the refrigerator and tell them to help themselves to whatever they want. It’s the least I can do, to return the favor to her. I trust them completely with my house and I’ve met most of their friends, so I’m confident they will take care of things properly.
Just two more days and I’m off! I can’t wait to have a nice relaxing vacation from the tedious work I do almost 50 hours a week. I think people shouldn’t have to work more than 30 hours a week because life is too short for that. I’m looking forward to my retirement in a few years!
