MY DAY: Monday sliding out

It was an odd day, all around.

Time at the park was delightful and there were folks from Canada, Australia, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri (four sets), Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia. I love meeting all the folks from all over the country, and the world. Who would have thought folks from Australia or other parts of the world would be in Dayton, Ohio to visit Carillon Historical Park?

The day seemed off. Just in little ways, but just not on an even keel.

Last night I had a break between lessons and ordered Mcdonald’s from Grubhub. I had ordered two cheeseburgers, a chicken sandwich, and two pies. What arrived, and only arrived, was a large diet Coke in a very large paper sack! Ugh. Today, I ordered Captain D’s which was to arrive at 2:40 PM. Finally, at 4:07 PM, my food arrived, cold and even after warming it up, it just tasted unedible. I did contact Grubhub and they sent a $10 coupon to be deducted from future orders. I am not sure if I will order anything else through Grubhub. Two back-to-back experiences that were just not good.

Lessons are going remarkably well this summer. It is nice to be back in the swing of things with in-person lessons as the students absorb so much more.

My last lessons for the evening were on vacation or marching band camp so my teaching evening ended on an early note. I got my research notes typed up and entered them into the master plot and caught up on a bit more research. I feel as though I have had an accomplished day.

Now, as it reaches 10:30 PM, I am retiring to the bedroom to read up some more on the magic of electricity and electric starters and ignitions. Talk about some “fun” reading. LOL! I am such a dolt about science and the basics of engineering; however, I was once ignorant on flight and early airplanes!

Rain has moved into The Miami Valley and several more small cells are in line behind this current one. The air is cooler and the refreshing sweet smell of rain wafts through the house. How peaceful.
