It’s 9:19 PM on this beautiful winter evening and I’m trying to decide if I should place myself in a place prepared to sleep.
Sleep was rough last night; the restlessness and frequent bathroom trips made for sloppy interrupted rest and although I wanted to return to bed after breakfast, however, I pushed on.
By 9:00 AM, I was hitting my fill out Hazel-mode, thoroughly cleaning the entire main floor while listening to presidential podcasts and ”Hamilton.” I did not stop until 3:00 PM.
Today, my Hoosier relatives gathered to celebrate and bid farewell to my cousin, Terry Richardson, who was taken by Covid and pneumonia.
I spent 90 minutes in London with Josh, Dave, Anne, and Phil as the boys took us on our virtual London Adventure, exploring The National Gallery, Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, and a cute tour through Mayfair. We had a grand time and I’m eager for Wednesday’s adventure.
By 8:15 PM, I finished another round of cleaning and purging unnecessary items.
I had five Amazon deliveries and several lovely, touching, and delicious gifts from students and former students.
I don’t think I could have commanded a lovelier and productive day.
Thank you to everyone who made the day so gratifying. Know you are loved…
