My black bamboo is threatening to take over my yard. I spent about an hour cutting down shoots and trimming up the stand. It looks kinda OK now but it has managed to attract some climbing vine, of course. I sprayed all the vines surrounding my yard with RoundUp. It may not work. These are tough vines.
I cleaned out the pottery studio and have about a ton of dry clay. Must buy more. Must buy a pug mill. I also condensed my glaze recipes into one binder. Good grief, I have a bunch of recipes!
I wrote one grant and handled a bunch of things for work.

So for my first week of semi-retirement I have gotten up at the regular time BUT did not dress in my usual biz attire. Instead I slipped on my jeans and a tee shirt. I put in 5 hours grant writing and am done by 1 p.m.! Then for an hour I head out to my studio. I'm revamping it, getting rid of all the dry blocks of clay and duplicates of my glaze chemicals. I need room! It's a great break from the computer work. Then a visit with the beanies or work on one of my books. I can go to the store when it's empty, make phone calls without having them overheard, and concentrate without someone constantly needing something from me. So I'm loving it.
