Free Day

Today's weather forecast: sunny, 93 degrees. "A pleasant day," according to the radio announcer on KXJZ, the local NPR station....

It's also a free day, due to the fact that the local K-8 school didn't need me to substitute teach after all. So I did some exercise, listened to the radio, and even wrote a letter to my 90 year-old grandmother. I am convinced that I have the coolest grandmother in the world, and I haven't seen or talked to her since her big 90th birthday party back in April. Since I had the time, I wrote her a letter ... by hand, no less.

I also wrote a letter to Chris, who turns 16 this Saturday, although this one I did on the computer. I'm an introvert, and I get my thoughts across better in writing (that's why I blog, after all), so I wrote him a letter for his birthday. I hope he likes it.

I'm trying not to feel guilty for not doing much work. That's the hazard of having one's office in the house: the work is always there.

Now, my 8 year-old is home from school, and is excited to tell me about his day (how often does that happen? not often!), so that's it for today's post.

Don't feel guilty, my friend. Reading of your letter to your grandmother speaks to me of a "flow" given unto us by One Who recognizes it wasn't just meant to "work" in secular fashion. It's always a pleasure to drop by here and catch up on what's going on in your life. Peace, my friend......
