Back to Work
Even worked outside, pickaxing the dried-up ground around the perennials, transplanting poorly growing flowers to new spots in the yard. The dogs got more attention, walking and grooming, and the cats got held and petted much more often. It was glorious.
I learned to not be afraid of the 100+ degree days here in Virginia. Keep following the shade and wear a big hat. If you have to go to the store park far away in the shade at the edges of the parking lots.
Write lots of letters and postcards to friends, they love it and sometimes even write you back. Give stuff away. Think about what I can do better at school next year. Vow to not let technology take first place in the list of priorities.
Hope everyone has a good school year--2012-2013. We start back next Tuesday. Eeek!
