It's rather lovely to find just the words for this Saturday Celebration. I didn't write them, but sure wish I had.

and it is good, a way of letting life
out of the box, uncapping the bottle
to let the effervescence gush
through the narrow, usually constricted neck.
The week flew, ending today with an absolutely wonderful thing, meeting Penny Parker Klostermann this morning IN PERSON, and helping her celebrate her book at a local favorite bookstore, The Bookies. She is a blogger friend and I've loved reading her blog, wrote a guest post with Ingrid recently that was lots of fun to create. You can find the post here.
The week began with a mountain hike, looking for the golden views of aspen, Ingrid and Imi
loving the challenges of rock-climbing. That evening we sat at a nearby park to watch that spectacular super/blood/moon with a full lunar eclipse. I wouldn't have missed watching no matter the time.
I'm proud of myself for finally finally signing up again with Curves. There is one very near, and I just haven't taken the time to do so. I did this exercising before I moved, and loved it. It will be great for me in addition to walking. And, Monday morning I'll be meeting with the volunteer coordinator at a nearby favorite used bookstore to see what times are available for me to volunteer my time to them. Now if I can only refrain from purchasing!!
There was an offer from the alternative teaching program with whom I am working (mentoring the new young teacher-to-be at my school) to participate in a mentoring/coaching institute, which I did on Thursday and Friday. It was a joy to meet and talk with so many interesting teachers, coaches, principals, and museum educators in this group. I took a class in cognitive coaching a few years ago, but it was long enough ago that I felt this would be a great refresher, and it was!
It felt like a full week, and I'm looking forward to another, and my brother, sister-in-law and niece will be here a week from today, to spend a long weekend and to help me celebrate my birthday.
I'm anticipating a sweet October! And I hope all of you are, too!
