I am thinking that I need to just go and sit more often...to people watch, listen to the birds, and mostly just "Be." Why do I wait for "homework" to do? Within a 5 minute car ride of work, water beckons, as does this bench.
I am thankful for so much...this glorious weather, a chance to practice my photography skills, second hand books to savor, freshly brewed coffee, pansies and wild mint.
From the kitchen a sliver of delicious rich chocolate torte awaits; I'm going to savor every bit of it!
I am wearing jeans and a tshirt, my weekend warrior outfit.
I am creating something with my photos, and there's a deadline to be met.
I am going to my last photography class in a short bit; time to spend with Kara; time to share my photos and learn how I can make them better.
I am reading some light mystery novels, the kind that don't require much thought and that I can gobble up in an evening - sheer relaxation mode.
I am hoping that somehow I get to inhale salt air soon, laugh at the gulls, and eat some steamed clams.
I am hearing silence broken only by the tapping of these computer keys - some rare time alone.
Around the house, much waits to be done, and honestly, it can just wait. I'm in the mood to savor down time.
A few plans for the week - math tests to give and then correct, along with beginning all the paperwork that comes with the end of the year countdown. We have several weeks to go, but oh, that cruddy paperwork. Bleah! See why I'm savoring down time?
