Again, three new Mary Lincoln day lilies were bouncing in the breeze as I scoured the front yard on this exceptionally beautiful morning.
My legs, upon wakening at 7:00 AM, and even two hours later during this writing, feel good, less tingly, and somewhat strong. I need to attend to the mowing of the entire yard before teaching and this is making me feel more confident in that awaiting task.
June is all but over. Despite this month always being a reminder of three significant family losses, Grandpa Leroy Barmes (June 3, 2004, Uncle Ron Barmes (June 8, 1987), and Grandma Donna Barmes (June 27, 1992), it is still my favorite month since it kicks off summer and tons of time on the deck. Mother liked this month least as she always commented, “I lost my original entire family all in the month of June.”
It’s off to the races for me as I attend to ordering my groceries, tidying up my study, cleaning the kitchen and feeding the dishwasher, the mowing, and teaching fourteen lessons from 4:00 PM until 11:00 PM.
This is the last month for eleven seniors who shall be moving on to college for musical theatre or music education. Each made the college of their choice and are eager to begin their new adventure. When July turns over, I shall have five new students putting the studio in the new balance for which I am aiming, capped at 42 students after the seniors have departed.
Make it a great day!
