For an amazing day and amazing friends with whom you can pick right up even though it’s been 2 years or more.
For the weirdness of making friends on flights, particularly when sharing the experience of delays. For a memory which still works from time to time, which led me to recognize the patents of a student I taught at my last brick and mortar school, in the Denver airport.
Shallowly, for a raise. More deeply, for a boss who trusts me to do my job responsibly and well. Personally, for time with someone special.
For good colleagues.
Was wobbly last night, after moving a ton (literally) of soil. Spent the morning taking it easy and wishing I had a load of terracotta tiles to do my patio edging with. Then I opened the front door and saw these beauties being chucked out across the street. I’m a little worried I’m getting obsessive about bricks, bit they’re gorgeous!
Had a very productive day of digging. Aiming to finish this big garden project by September 1st, so am pleased to note that it’s getting there-ish.
For being lucky enough to have great friends, a job that pays the bills, time and money for activities which keep me relatively healthy, both mentally and physically.
For having a good first day yesterday (if totally exhausting) and following through with something today that I never thought I’d actually do.
For finally being done with the last kid from the 12-13 school year, especially since the new one has been in progress for 3 weeks!
Got to borrow the in-laws’ camper van this weekend – boy, did that make unpacking easy. And the laundry basket is full of clothes with a slight wood smoke tinge. I really miss wood fires, and it was great to go to a campsite that permits them. I’m glad to be reminded this morning. Now, to go finish levelling this patio.
