Weekly Round-Up

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.
