It was a productive day and by avoiding riding the bus to Town & Country, I managed to build 6,418 steps to my day.
Erma was energetic for some of this morning and by Noon, she appeared to be slipping fast. The lethargy was heavy and there were moments I thought she might breathe her last. However, at the 4:00 PM feeding, she hurried into the kitchen, eagerly ate all her food, drank some water, and moved out to the backyard for potty time. A former student and neighbor boy now in middle school, stopped by as I was taking out recyclables and he came in to see The Quartet. Erma acted as though nothing was wrong.
She was all over the place: energetic and playing the ambassador and on over to listless. As one of my students was preparing to leave, I had a ten-minute break. We leashed up Erma and took her outside where she became a healthy, vibrant old girl.
Tonight was just a fun, great night of teaching. I was finishing up with one of my female sophomore students from Beavercreek and I pulled my former student, Katie, in to sing a duet with the song on which my sophomore was working. It was a nice moment.
I finished with Kate at 10:15 PM and hit the last three students, ending the teaching day at 11:45 PM. It was a fine day.
Tomorrow, I have the morning free before spending the afternoon at The Park.
And with that, it is time to retire to my bedroom.
