After I posted last Saturday, after doing a few errands, I took the first nap I've had in a long time. I needed it, it was the beginning of our winter break, and it started snowing that evening. I know those of you in the east and southeast don't want to hear about celebrating snow, but because I didn't have to "go" anywhere, it was heavenly.
I've been writing a poem a day for a challenge offered by a blogging friend, Laura Shovan, Author Amok, who sets a challenge each February because it's her birthday month. It's been wonderful to have the time to write without hurrying.
Ingrid had her promised sleepover with me Wednesday. We ate lunch at Noodles, went to the zoo which was so under-crowded that we rode the Merry-Go-Round all by ourselves (and took a selfie). Highlights were the lizards, the anemones, and the sweet penguins. Evening time was full of more pasta and ice cream, just a bit of playing, and bedtime books. It was a wonderfully warm and glorious day.
Despite the extra time on vacation, I still had a lot of school work to do, but even that time was nice and leisurely, going to school to clean out a few things, use the copier, make quiet decisions. I suspect you teachers know what I mean.
This is my 903rd post! It's been a journey of happiness and sorrow, celebration and regret, but I do love to write, and appreciate all those who have come along for the ride. I celebrate that I've been able to continue, and have the support that helps me do so.
The news about the All-Write Consortium is here. Is anyone planning to go? The line-up of VIPs is impressive, including Ruth Ayres and Mary Helen Gensch. I think I can just make it, after finishing the last evaluations, etc. for school. If you look carefully, you'll recognize nearly everyone in the picture! What a nice surprise!
Celebrating a good week! How about you?
