Okay, I made it through Valentine’s Day without you, with lots of love from our circle of friends. and there’s another dinner event tonight, with two couples arriving at 6. Apps ready, entree? hmmm. I’m still considering revisions. Once the ice on the walkways and roads melts, as freezing temps rise into the 50’s, I’ll be free again to come and go to shop as I please, as I continually update my list on my iPhone. Ahhh love my tech!
Yesterday, after an torturous hour with Jon and my guitar, where nothing seemed to stick. My brain was a sieve after a day of great food and drink that seemed to leave my in hangover mode, I was dressed to take on the cold complete with my ear covers, gloves, lined boots- the works. But light snow was beginning to fall earlier than expected and in this deep freeze… I didn’t really need to refill my shelves so, I turned around and opted for a day indoors. Yes, I know you’re thinking- CRAZY!!!! But for 24 hours, 48… I can embrace my life as a couch potato, especially now with my Ellipse and all the toys I have around me to keep me content.
And the day was peaceful and productive. My brain kicked back into focus and with Andrea, in a Google Hangout, we jump-started our plan to make sense of our five years of PD collaboration. We hunted down our archived reflection documents, picked dates to interviewing groups of teachers who had been members of one or more of our projects. I can’t wait to meet up with teachers I got to know well in our small communities and back in their classrooms. What stuck with them? A new work plan at such a perfect time in my return to me.
I did grab up my guitar during the afternoon to try and figure out what I did with Jon during my lesson time. I did push to exercise on my Ellipse. I did read more about Lucy and her mom. I did get to write another letter to you yesterday. I did enjoy some of my food creations, tasting better as left overs. I did shut my eyes and dream of you.
It was a good day but I am looking forward to the melting. Yes, your influence is everywhere. Yes, you are pushing me off and out. Yes, I am starting to feel some of that cabin fever. I am a different Bonnie. Yes, I’m me and I’m you.
Almost time to start filling your suitcase…
Wish you were here, nudging me off this couch,
