A few quick things before I head off to graduation at the school where I teach.
(I always think of Grandpa G. at graduation because Grandma G. graciously and generous gave me his doctoral robes. It was such a kind gesture and I’ve always been grateful to feel that in some small way I’m carrying on the work he did in education.)
…. Belovedest had a 30-mile, 45+ minute detour on gravel roads Thursday in order to get to work. Lots of flooding in our area. I’m grateful that none of it is in our basement.
… I finished grading!
… Thursday I did voice over work in Omaha, plus had lunch with my dear friend Anne M., PLUS surprised Conner at his President Wax Museum school project. Remember the Abraham Lincoln tie I made? I got to see it in action.
…. Dropped off some metal recycling. I made $8.23, in part because of 45 pounds worth of office furniture that I intercepted from the trash. It’s not a lot of money, but I also know whatever I bring is getting recycled instead of ending up in the landfill.
… We did LOTS of gardening stuff! Here are some tomato seedlings that are coming up. We’ll be posting soon on decorating rain barrels, doing soil tests, and making tomato cages.
