School’s out for summer!
Sing it Alice, sing it.
Just in case you’re wondering, that’s not me on the last day of school. That’s Alice Cooper, but even I admit the resemblance is uncanny.
Today I woke up and literally jumped for joy. My beloved husband said, “Does this mean you’re going to be in a good mood every day this summer?”
“Yes, Yes it does.”
(looking towards the heavens) “Thank you Jesus.”
My moods have been less than good lately. And summertime is just what the doctor ordered. I enjoy my job. I enjoy my students. I also enjoy my time off.
Plans for my summer consist of a whole lot of nothing. My dad used to say in reference to his retired life, “Everyday’s a Saturday.” Agreed, that is what my summer should be. I’m not a vacationer. I don’t care to travel. I hate to fly, and that big old world out there holds no intrigue for me. I’m a homebody, happy to sit in the yard and listen to the chickens cluck. They’re beginning to cluck now. They no longer peep. Their sounds are lovely, lovely to my ears.
During Summer two thousand eleven:
I’m going to work on my writing and my figure.
I’m going to start and complete household projects.
I’m going to cook supper at least four times a week.
I’m going to spend time with my niece.
I’m going to buy a pool.
I’m going to pray and draw closer to God.
I’m going to relish each day.
I leave you with a favorite quote of mine. I’ve posted it before but it’s double post worthy.
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water or watching the clouds float across the sky is by no means a waste of time.” Unknown
Happy summer friends.
