Last day of classroom work (sans students) for the year was Monday. Tuesday I had a meeting all day. Wednesday I was a "prisoner" to caution tape as SolarCity installed eighteen solar panels to my rooftop. (THAT feels good!)
Yesterday felt like my first day of summer break. My mom felt well enough to join her quilt club friends (over 35 years with the same group of wonderful, talented women) for the first leg of the annual Southern California Quilt Run. I drove and my sister-in-law went with us. We hit four shops, then had a lovely Chinese food lunch in Woodland Hills. After we got back to Simi Valley we hit our favorite restaurant - Red's BBQ and Grillery - for a shared brownie sundae. Later Mom and I returned to the same restaurant (our second home, second family) for dinner.
Seemed like the perfect Saturday.
Today I hit the garden at 9:00 am and kept at it for seven hours. Took short breaks for water and food and checking in on facebook to cool off, but for the most part I was busy pulling weeds (I LOVE to pull spring grass and there was plenty of it), repairing fence and cleaning a space that hadn't been completely cleaned for a couple of years, I think.
I finally hit the areas that needed to be watered before I could continue so I turned on the system and rested. After a shower I meditated for fifteen to my favorite guided meditation tape, did cross stitch for an hour or so and now am deciding whether to start the second stitchery piece or just go to bed early. Hmmm...
Want to share my new gadget.
So, my birthday is Sunday and I bought myself this gadget. Hard boils up to ten eggs at a time. I did three this morning to try it out and they were perfect! Peeled easily and sunny yellow centers.
Overall a perfect Sunday.
Except it's not Sunday. On and off today I felt the familiar "work tomorrow" energy starting to kick in and had my annual delight of realizing NO WORK TOMORROW. Because it's not Sunday, it's Friday. And even if it were Sunday, still NO WORK TOMORROW because it's summer break.
Gonna be a great one!
