MIAGD: Make it a great day
It’s a cool 65° breeze blowing across the deck but I don’t mind as it is quite comfortable.￼￼
The five of us spent the night in the downstairs guest bedroom; the wind constantly made the curtains stand out away from the windows. I hate sleeping in air-conditioning or with fans on me, but I can never get enough of natural air coming through a window.￼￼
Today is my “first Friday.” In the summers I only teach Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, filling each day to the fullest so I can enjoy three days of writing, reading, relaxing, and hopefully, returning to Carillon Park and other favorite haunts.
I began my summer schedule, Sunday, June 7th, after ten days off. It was the most relaxing time spent reading, watching documentaries, resting, enjoying time on the deck, and doing absolutely nothing. I did have an agenda of household duties but I actually attended to about 10% or less. And I do not mind. I didn’t realize just how stressful March through May had been reorganizing my entire teaching world. While it all fit together nicely, there was still a fare amount of stress.
Right now, Chief is on the deck, close by me, while the three girls are in the yard sniffing for any signs of creatures that have left a scent while passing through.
It’s now, 9:02 AM. I’ve had my twenty minute FaceTime chat with my son and his partner in London. Breakfast is finished and I’m energized and ready to begin my day.
Make it a great day!
