Good morning to you. I’m glad you stopped by. I just put the coffee on – it’ll be ready shortly. I like these regular meet ups we have. I really missed them over the past few weeks. Thanks for being understanding.
Did you enjoy the burger post I promised? There are some good comments you might be interested in.
I even managed to write about the book I’m currently reading this week. Well, reading in addition to Jerusalem. That book’s interesting, but there’s only so much of it I can read at one time. It’s not gruesome or anything, but it’s more in the style of James Joyce, and so you’ve just got to take time to sit and think.
School has been interesting this week with my seniors gone on their senior trip. Reality is setting in that we only have two weeks left of school; one really, since the last week is exam week. Unfortunately, this also means some students have set their brains to summer mode already.
I chaperoned a field trip to a dairy farm & creamery this week. After years of being away from cows I quite enjoyed the trip with its accompanying bovine smells. The students were enchanted with the calves and the dairy products (ice cream! chocolate milk!) and not so much with the smell.
That ice cream is a scoop of coffee toffee and a scoop of cookie dough. Yum!
This week my car decided to start acting up when it refused to start even though everything looked good. Somehow I had a security malfunction, which is apparently common in my specific kind of older car. 10 minutes after diagnosis I was back on the road.
You know, it’s good to have a best friend. I haven’t seen my best friend (apart from Krystal, that is) in over 9 years but we still try to keep in touch. The other morning I woke up to discover we’d been texting – in English and in German – and had had quite the pleasant conversation. I wish our schedules would work out that we could meet up.
Last night Krystal and I attended a community theatre production of Sweeney Todd as (a) it’s one of our favorite musicals, though Krystal likes it better than I do, and (b) we had friends in it.
It was good all things considered. The chief sponsor has foam stress balls with their name on it to hand out – stress balls in the shape of body parts! Krystal found a heart and I picked out a foot. How apropos.
The most disturbing part of the whole affair was the lack of an Oxford comma on the playbill.
When we’re done here I’ve got to go check on some laundry and later on I’m helping family move a piano. Not that I have experience in that or anything. hahahah
So, what have you been up to? Any plans?
