The Simplest Things

"I find relaxation, enjoyment, and healing in the simplest things in life."

Sometimes life just feels right and you need to share.

Highlights of my week:

~I have been using our kitchen table as my desk area for way too long. I have had a vision of what I wanted for my workspace, but haven't done much to make it happen. I knew I wanted to find something used and found the above desk and chair on Craigslist yesterday for a great price. Steve and Alexander picked it up for me today. I LOVE it.

~Sophia was fitted for two different costumes on Friday night. This is her first play. Trying on costumes felt so exciting. I am glad I was included. I am beginning to think I am as excited about this play as she is. What I value most from our experience so far with this theatre group is how supportive the kids and adults are to each other. I am glad Sophia is in this environment.

~I started a new class on Thursday morning. I have 12 woman and one man. About 3/4 of the students were in my lower level classes so I felt comfortable the first day. It will be a fun quad. Also, since my evening class was cut, I have all my evenings free for the first time in nine years!

~I met three of my students at Starbucks Saturday morning for what they called our "social time" together. They are a blast. In May they will graduate from our ESL program, but I hope we continue our monthly get togethers.

~Physically I didn't feel too bad. My knee, hand, and feet are still feeling some pain, but overall, not too bad. I was able to get out and do some more walking this week which I enjoyed and the coming week promises warm temperatures.

~Life is good for Cateepoo.
