I wake up in the morning and my breakfast bowl says:
"What did you do yesterday after you left me?" and "What are you going to do today on your day off?" Well, I say, "yesterday I went to work...and at noontime I took a nice brisk walk."
As I stood waiting for a traffic light to change
I was spoken to by a teenage young man at a stop light:
"Hello Mam" he said, how are you today? "Fine" said I.
"School is OUT!" He said, very excited to let me know this, as he pounded repeatedly
on the button that tells the traffic light he wants to cross the street.
And then he continued to tell me that "...school was a complete waste,
that he only went there for friends!"
I had no doubt he had plenty!
I think I said something about trusting he probably learned a thing or two there,
as he rushed off across the street to catch a bus!
I enjoyed the nicely decorated cars parked on the street curbs.
But was rather daunted by the speed of the passing cars driven noisily by teens behind the wheel.
I dare say I cowered closer to the plants and buildings lest one might jump a curb and end my life too early...G-d forbid! I had taken a new route from my office this day and was seeing new flowers
smell the roses!
from a photo I took on my noontime walk the day before.
on my art studio sliding glass doors.
This will make sewing in summer more enjoyable!
I'll also be making labels for paintings and fiber art
that will go to the library tomorrow for hanging.
I think maybe, just maybe
DH will get home early from HIS LAST DAY of school
(and believe me he will be even happier than that young man from yesterday that
SCHOOL IS OUT!)
and he and I may go to Davis
for dinner and to the
2nd Friday of the month Art About!
I hope so. I'll let you know at breakfast tomorrow!
