There is certainly nothing wrong with ordinary. Some days, ordinary is quite the welcome visitor.
Aside from teaching, there is not much on the docket for this week save my endocrinology appointment, a doctor’s appointment for my quarterly check-up, and an eagerly awaited visit this Friday evening with a friend who is currently in college. That visit will surely be the highlight of my week.
My next door neighbor boy, Kelley, a high school junior, has been laying the remainder of the crushed marble around the shed. He’s such a good worker, and a really nice young man. Even in middle school, during the summers, he would make additional pancakes to share with my sons.
The deck is absolutely splendid this morning. The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a tree, and an old loud cicada is buzzin’ at me… The Kids are lounging near my chair. Since the sun is taking a respite behind some clouds, my writing time on the deck might be extended – around 10:30-11:00AM, the sun becomes too bright, despite the umbrella’s shade, to see the monitor.
Additional studio business has been completed, and I am ready to open up some writing projects.
