Late this afternoon, I completed my final assignments for Personality Theory class and now have a 4 day break before the new term begins. Man! That class was difficult! I’ve never written so much in my life, but I’m happy to say that I have a 4 point and my professor just recommended I publish my last paper, so I’m pretty pleased that all my hard work is paying off.
Tomorrow, I shall turn off my computer and put my phone away and hit the road for a couple of days of sweet R&R!
My daughter, Sarah and I are going to take 4 yr. old Ingrid to Seattle for 2 of those 4 days, in order to see Maya, my 17 year old granddaughter, shown here at Seattle’s famous Pike’s Market, fiercely armed with a pineapple!
We’ll be leaving in the morning. She is so psyched about this, and so are we! On Friday night, we’re going to have a “slumber party” at one of my best friend’s beautiful house. Sheryl, (shown here with our mutual friend, George, who now lives in Mexico) and I have known one another since we both lived in Texas….20 years? Something like that. She and her partner, Dylan, are metal artists. Sheryl specializes in patinas. Dylan welds. They both do amazing work!
Sheryl and Dylan, have created the coziest, most fabulous living space. Their house is full of plants and art and is …well, just perfect, really… Comfortable, beautiful and with much character. It is in a remote-ish area and there is plenty of time to spread out and relax while we bask in the pleasure of one another’s company. This is Dylan with their now-deceased boxer, Buddha.
Sheryl and Dylan now have two beautiful black boxers, Ella and Able. Our little Beatrix will be no match for these two big guys. I’m planning to keep them apart. These two dogs are like thoroughbred racehorses, and every bit as graceful. They’re both brilliant, too, and have no idea that they are dogs.
It has been a long time since I’ve had the time to just hang out and have fun. Maya is bringing a friend, and we’re just going to relax, eat pizza, play cards, watch movies and have a good time. I SO look forward to spending this time with my family there!!
The coming school term is going to be difficult. Two complex classes, lots of writing and much time and energy will be expended. This will give me time to relax and unwind a little…to recharge, as it were. My daughter Sarah needs this, too. It will be good.
Can you see the smile on my face?? Can’t wait!
