Summertime Part I

Summer is a magical time for a teacher,

perhaps the most magical time of the year. 

A time to renew and recover, 

to reflect and plan for the future, 

a time to travel and surround oneself with beauty and bliss, 

a time for family and home projects

Time. While there never seems to be enough of it during the school year, it hangs around a little longer during these warm summer days. 

Life is complex, but I have so appreciated the sweet simplicity of summer.

I took my car in to get some work done, and it's always exhausting after any car maintenance day.  It wasn't the simple kind of work, like an oil change, it was the engine kind of work, and very expensive.  I tried calling three other places to get a lower price on the part I needed, and finally found someone who would take care of it for less.  That was the only good thing about the day.....and taking some pictures of pretty things while I waited.  This took about three hours, and another day was scheduled to do the repair work.
A nice lady let me take pictures of her cute dog
while we waited.
She's getting sleepy,
and sleepier,
and fell asleep.
This pretty much sums up my
car maintenance day.

Maybe Tomorrow

I had a conversation with a blog friend recently through e-mail.  We went back and forth several times and talked about many things.  She is lovely and compassionate and good, and a beautiful woman here in blog land.  This is a song that she is fond of, so you can listen to it while I share some Summer photos.

peace and good, brotherhood........
and sisterhood.  ; )
