A new week begun! This was my Monday to work for three hours at Rachel's school during the lunch hour. So I got the boys started on school and headed off to help in the kitchen. After getting my day's exercise cleaning tables and chairs and vacuuming with the heavy duty (heavy weighing) vacuum, I dashed out the door to keep my tea appointment with my neighbor.
Tea was a nice 50 minutes of calm for the day. We never choose regular, caffeinated tea, but for some reason that's what I opted for. Usually I come home from Rachel's school and lie down or rest for nearly an hour because of the physical toll it takes on me. Since I wasn't doing that today my reasoning was blurred and I chose the caffeine. That makes me talk, a lot!
I zipped out of my neighbor's and back down to school to pick up Rachel and take her to her music lessons where I had an hour to catch up on writing cards, calling/texting people and other various online tasks. On our way home, just as we came to the farm with the lighted star, Rachel spotted a huge, faint rainbow gracing the sky! What a rare treat for December!!
Fortunately there were leftovers for dinner because there were so many other things to do besides cook -- ironing, planning, sewing, etc.
One special treat I am enjoying is being part of a calligraphy exchange! I sent out 7 handmade, calligraphied cards and now I am receiving 7 in return! Three have arrived so far. They are just beautiful! At some point I'll have to post a picture of all of them. It is such a delight to be the recipient of all this art!
