This four-day weekend has come to an end.
I absolutely love my summer teaching schedule which is generally 12 to 13 hours each on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. It sounds grueling, but it is not. I get the teaching week over in three days, and then I have four days to devote to yardwork, writing, spending time with my dogs, traveling here and there, photographing to my heart’s delight, and if I so choose, relaxing. I can relax and take naps any time, but during the summer months, I hate wasting a minute inside.
Right now I am relaxing in my Adirondack chair on the deck, listening to the distant thunder, watching the skylight up, feeling a few drops of rain, and delighting in the instrumental chorus of two windchimes doing their thing.
It was such a beautiful weekend.
