I taught from 8:30 AM – 1:45 PM and had the entire afternoon off due to student vacations and band camps.
I took full advantage of running errands to the vegetable stand near the Marshall and Stroop roads intersection. Sadly, they were already out of sweet corn, but I did get small potatoes, several tomatoes, zucchini, and squash. At Kroger I found two nice steaks and some packaged sweet corn (mistake). Supper was a delicious fare of steak (which I rarely eat), roasted potatoes, sweet corn, and a baked medley of zucchini, squash, tomatoes, and onions.
I detest cooking. I seldom complete one of my own meals, my soups being the exception, where I am terrifically delighted with the results. Tonight, I was one happy chef.
I was on the bus to Riverscape by 7:00 PM. The weather was absolutely perfect.
And then it happened: three wonderful surprises!
Donna Barlett, Jinnie Wilkins, and Diane Householder all visited me at Riverscape!
Donna and Jinnie are those angels who work with special needs and I got to know them when teaching saxophone lessons at Ankeney Middle School. Diane taught at Van Buren Middle School and had several of my sons in class, and tutored one son.
Donna, Jinnie and I sat on the swing, snapping river shots as we chatted. Diane and I visited the fountains for some close-up photos.
I dearly loved seeing these three fantastic women!
The late evening on the deck is the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae. I will finish my letter to Mother so that I can get it into the mail, tomorrow, and then call it a night.
