It’s a mischievous play by nature: at 10:40 AM, it’s only 77-degrees with humidity at 70%; however, it feels much like the 89-degrees that is anticipated for later today with humidity at 130%. There is a gentle breeze that makes the deck tolerable at spells. At least the clanging wind chimes make me believe so.
This is the time of year I begin bidding farewell to my seniors who are preparing to go to college in the upcoming weeks. Some students I’ve had since kindergarten or first grade and it’s been a delight watching them grow up and grow into fine musicians and thespians. I’ve seventeen seniors leaving for college, more in music education, performance, and composition than in musical theatre, the split being 10 in music and 7 in musical theatre. I wish them well, but oh, how I shall miss them.
The Quartet spends most of their lounging time in my air conditioned study while I teach. They don’t seem to mind our deck time as they just want to be nearby.
The only thing on today’s docket is a 1:00 PM rescheduled lesson. The mowing will just have to wait.
