Silver Liningness Sunday

This was a good week - moreso in introspection and revelation than in actual quantifiable events. But I'll take good over bad anytime, and I'm left feeling rather energized, bold, and vibrant. I'll leave that at that. Esoteric enough?

As for the measurable stuff...

Work has been goodly busy. I've got that one grad class I started last weekend, then the high school class starts this coming week, and a handful of tutees. Friendly students, flexible hours, and a paycheck. Good things come in three's.

Speaking of flexible hours, I got a call to go help out with school pics at the elementary school on Friday. That is fun volunteer duty. Little kids all dressed up for their annual photos, from kindergarten to 5th grade. We got them all through in record time and only had to deal with one high-maintenance mom!

Despite the busyness, I still find time to play with my art toys. The internet helps. What did we do before the internet?

Weather's been nice, which allows for lots of outside time, but we could use some rain. Anyone know a rain dance?

Good for you!

I'm also encouraged by with the new school year.

I liked the acrobat drawing; I've always had trouble just drawing people. Portraits weren't too bad, but people as a whole are a little tougher for me.

Glad to hear you had a good week!

I never got a call on the part time job so I was a bit bummed about that but oh well...I'll live vicariously through your stories of pleasant class/tutoring sessions!

I am volunteering in the library twice a month, and my first shift is this week, so that should be fun.
