So it is a dreary, rainy, Saturday afternoon. The weather forecasters said the rain was to have cleared out by now, but they were wrong. I have numerous activities and outdoor chores I wanted to work on today, but the weather is not cooperating. Both stations on TV that carry westerns are playing The Big Valley, which is not one of my favorite western shows, no offense meant to anyone, I loved it as a kid, but my preferences have changed over time.
Since I could not get outside to complete what I needed to do, I posted my classroom podcast, read part of a library eBook, enjoyed some espresso with frothed Half and Half from United Dairy Farms, played with Charli, our puppy, did some prep work for my Honors US II Summer Reading Project, and decided I needed a break.
My daughter started working on her blog again and asked about mine. I had to admit I do not write to this space much anymore with my podcast and the PAECT Pod taking up time, along with many life commitments. Due to my regret, embarrassment, or shame of not using this site, I thought what better way to take a break than to ramble on here.
We all need down days such as today. I have many activities and chores to complete outside, but sometimes we just need to take time to relax. Writing is one of the ways I relax, however, I have not made enough time to do so for a number of years now. I hope to get back into the practice soon. This is the first step. Now, time to turn off all electronics and spend some time with the family and hopefully see the end of the rain soon.
