I am celebrating several things this week:
1) Tuesday became my official first day of summer break. I loved my students and we learned so much together this year, but there is a joy that accompanies the flexibility of a summer schedule. Exercise when I want, including that 8:30 AM yoga class with the instructor I love. Going to Book Club in the middle of the afternoon. Breakfast with a friend. Time to do errands, make phone calls, schedule appointments. Time to sit on the screened porch and read.
2) My birthday present arrived this week, and is now on our screened porch. I love this loveseat, and all the promises it offers of friends gathering, great book reading and cozy nap taking.
3) I went Thursday night to one of the many premieres offered at our local theatre for The Fault in Our Stars. My youngest daughter pre-ordered our tickets, we munched happily on popcorn, and then got lost in the wonderful-ness of this movie, complete with buckets of tears.
