Thursday and Friday both felt like Saturday; Saturday felt like Sunday but without the late afternoon through late night teaching schedule.
A productive day on many levels but I also enjoyed the down time.
I am finishing up Linda Monk’s THE BILL OF RIGHTS: A USER’S GUIDE and I think I am liking this book ahead of the previous audiobooks I’ve enjoyed. The explanations and history behind each of the Bill of Rights is fascinating.
This evening, my bonus sister, Laura, picked me up and we dined on Mexican cuisine before heading to Northmont High School to see my student, Sophie, in the lead of THE DROWSY CHAPERONE with Vandalia Youth Theatre. Sophie was excellent and VYT, known as a strong production company for many years, did not disappoint. Bravo!
What a fun time spent with Laura which is not unusual.
Tomorrow evening resumes the teaching schedule and I am eager to work with the students this week. Band camps will be gearing up this week and the temperatures are forecast for the high 80s.
Since it would have been my Aunt Joyce’s 88th birthday I am closing off this blog entry with two of my favorite family photos.
The first is from 1945. My great-grandfather is holding my mother as a baby. The photographer, which was probably my great-great grandfather, kept telling my Aunt Joyce to stop making a face. They quickly discovered Mother was pulling Aunt Joyce’s hair.
The second photograph is of Aunt Joyce and Mother, the last time they were to be together. Mother left a few months later on August 5, 2019, and Aunt Joyce passed away December 11, 2020.
