Today was not a busy day, by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a nice day, not a hard day, and a couple of positive things happened.
I got to my 8 o’clock class at 8 o’clock on the dot, but my student is almost always late, by about 10 minutes or so. I rang the bell, but wasn’t surprised there was no one in the office yet. I waited fifteen minutes, then sent him a message. So far, that’s pretty much our routine, and he usually texts right back to say he’s stuck in traffic and he’ll be there shortly.
But he didn’t, so I went for a walk, it was a lovely morning, not cold at all, or actually raining at the moment, (I would still have to teach his colleague at 9 o’clock), got a couple of donuts, and then he texted. So I had the lesson after all, but we agreed that, starting next week, we’re going to move the start time back to 8:30, which is great for me because it means I can drop off Isabel at school and still make it on time easily.
Came home, went through my e-mail, browsed facebook for a bit, took a nap for an hour, got up and reheated some mashed potatoes for lunch, with ham and eggs, then added a couple of poems to my poems about paintings page. One I wrote about 3 weeks ago but never heard back from the artist so, what I do in that case is to try and find the same subject matter done by some famous and, most importantly, dead artist. Sue me. While looking for that, I found a poem I’d written around the same time which wasn’t inspired by a painting at all but, any waterfall would do for an illustration, so that one was easy.
By this time it was already 3:30 and I finally got down to the proofreading I was supposed to be doing. I can’t say I did a lot, but did discover I’m further along with it than I thought, and we should finish the book by tomorrow with any luck.
All for tonight. Pleasant dreams to all.
