|Two baby cantaloupes that surprised me. May they ripen!|
So I had a LOT of schoolwork to do over my four-day break. I dreamt about it three out of four nights. I did none of it. Instead, I hunkered down and began sorting out my kitchen. And organizing the garage. And getting my weaving stuff in order. And bringing in the plants from the deck for the winter. And reading a book (that nothing to do with teaching). And enjoyed evenings of TV and cooking and relaxing.
This afternoon, as I continued on with my garage-cleaning, a car pulled into the driveway. It was Becky -- my beloved but not often seen daughter! We had such a lovely time -- even though we see each other so infrequently, when we're together, we just go on like no time has passed. That is love. I'm so very happy that she came. :)
Tonight I'm getting my teacher hat on again and have lesson plans down and report card grades are next. It all will get done. And the universe will continue on its course.
