Trying this blog entry from my cell phone–that’s risky! I am outside and just do not want to go INSIDE and log onto a computer…
What an odd day, a day mixed with joy and sadness. 630 AM—still dark—road closed ten seconds before the intersection where I turn to get to work and a truck started pouring hot tar in two lanes. Semi ahead of me kept knocking down tree branches (too big for the small amount of the lane still open) and construction cones. I had to get out of the car in the dark to move the cones, but finally a construction worker let me through.
11 hours of work (part time !) Some middle school kids on the college campus today. So cute. So loud. Sipping their pumpkin spice sugared drinks waiting for the presentation they were here for.
Some students asked if I could teach them next term.
Drove home in the dark.
Sad loved one’s health news.
Two more poetry rejections.
Glad I’m part time. This won’t happen often. To work in the dark. Home in the dark.
Glad for modern medicine which may help family member.
And frogs! I’m sitting outside in the dark with my trusty tennis racquet (you know… in case of critters) and with a spotlight hearing LOUD FROGS. It’s that warm now!?!??!! Wind blowing off so many remaining leaves.
Love hearing those frogs. Thought I’d not hear them for months, until spring.
Truly a changing season type of day.
(Picture taken with my little camera phone while sitting in the dark, soft rain… back flashlight light on the bush. I’m such an adventurer.)
Thanks for reading; may your seasonal changing days change well, with kindness and hope.
