ten things tuesday

Ten things random things:

1) From my wishlist--Bedphones.

2) I am digging my manicure. It's bright green with some texture on my thumbs and ring fingers.

3) Lately, I've been knitting dishcloths. Lots of dishcloths. Mindless knitting.

4) I did not talk to my Virginia sister yesterday and it's weird. We communicate every day! Until yesterday. Must remedy. (Aha--she's at a conference!)

5) My landlord is going to redo my bathroom. After 23-ish years, it needs a redo. I wish I knew when it was all going to happen. I get a vague "in the next couple of weeks."

6) I think I've finished my lesson plans for the rest of the school year. 18 days (not counting weekends).

7) The trees are greening. I keep thinking of Robert Frost's:
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

8) My dad's 81st birthday is this week. I'm getting him a fire pit for his back yard. He picked it out but I'll get it for him.

9) I love my job. I love my students. But I can't wait to hang out and read over the summer.

10) A chef would be fun. Or a housekeeper like Alice from the Brady Bunch--cooking and cleaning up.
