Day Twenty-Two of the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Challenge. Tweet at #SOL15
Thanks to Tara, Dana, Anna, Betsy, Beth and Stacey.If you've remembered yesterday, Saturday, and I didn't have much that I had to do, but lots that I wanted to do, even cleaning, and I wrote that I've worked hard that past few weeks and weekends getting ready for new units with my students, writing evals and then conferences. So I ran a few errands, finished up with the minor grocery shopping and planned to go home before lunch and leisurely write and read. I didn't.
And the reason for the title is that my son, daughter-in-law and grandson have been in the mountains skiing with friends all week during their spring break. They live in Lubbock, Texas. I talked with them, but didn't expect to see them at all. They fly sometimes, but this time they caravanned with friends and drove up. Last night my son called to tell me they were having car trouble. This morning I didn't hear anything so thought they must have gone on home. They hadn't. The car was still in trouble and mechanics could not figure it out. So, they called me, I picked them up, we had lunch together, and then I drove them to the airport to pick up a rental car. I had the wonderful gift of seeing them for about three hours, not planned, serendipity, very fun. Unfortunately, they had to leave their car behind. And that's another story.
And the slice today tasted quite different, definitely a little bit saltier.
The whipped cream on top is to get to see my grandson, now taller than me. And then, to eat dinner with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters tonight, a day with family that I hadn't counted on.
