The weather’s hot, the grass is growing, and teachers around the city are beginning to relax.
Yesterday was my last day of school for the year. Hooray! I have approximately 10 weeks to sleep late, go to the bathroom any time I want/need (without waiting for passing periods), eat when I’m hungry (rather than only at 12 noon), and do those things I’ve been putting off.
So maybe you’ll see more blog posts from me. Things have been happening on the homestead — animals born, others butchered, progress on the house-building, fruit ripening. But I also have a lot to do this summer. I agreed to develop an orientation program for new teachers at our school, and I need to write curriculum for the second year of my two-year honors class. There are home chores — cleaning the chicken coop and the rabbit barn, putting a cover on the pool and taking down the fence, reorganizing the guest room closet. I picked the first strawberries today, and there will be raspberries and blackberries ripening soon. There are little green cherries and little green peaches on our trees. Then the rest of the garden will start to be ready to harvest.
I want to write, knit, and draw up plans for a tree house / writing studio.
There is a lot of stuff to cram into 10 weeks.
I hope to make the most of the time.
