I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better day of teaching. The students were all energetic, eager and prepared. Toward the late afternoon I began feeling a bit ill, and I was grateful that several students had to cancel at the last minute. The slight nausea passed but some sluggishness remained.
Just as I stepped out onto the porch with all three dogs to go for an evening walk a rainshower broke loose. I ate a salad and waited out the rain, however, the dogs remained by the front door waiting for their walk. Within 20 minutes golden rays of sunshine were streaming through the windows spotlighting some beautiful sites around the neighborhood. It was a wonderful walk with all three dogs. Flyer, even in her declining health continues to enjoy these walks with great enthusiasm. You always seems rejuvenated and returns to the Flyer of healthier days.
Upon my return home I talked in the van with my camera and hurried Hills and Dales Metropark here in Kettering hoping to capture some of the beauty of the sun’s farewell. However, I was too late.
Since I missed out on that wonderful moment I decided that it was an even better treat to go to Awesome Yogurt. As I got out of the van I reaced for my wallet, as I typically do, and discovered that my wallet was not there. I had left it at home. Naturally by the time I returned home it was time for Awesome Yogurt to close. Now I am at Kroger grabbing some additional items for the week.
And as this fantastic day draws to a close I can say with satisfaction and great conviction: what a fine day it was!
