So, the 3 week class is more than 2/3 done now! Yay!
We have had an eventful weekend so far. Saturday was the McMinnville Triathalon. See my two triatheletes…
then Sunday, we went to canoe/kayak on the Duck River. We got caught in a downpour about 2/3 of the way to to take out and were SOAKED at the end. I also (thoughtlessly) put the towel bag in the vehicle at the put-in, so we drove over sopping wet. You just have to laugh, though. Every time we go to that part of the river we get soaked. 🙂
Today, DH has a 10K in Hendersonville and we are waiting for his return. He carpooled with his running buddies.
I am still working on my Dad’s socks (at gusset on second sock). He has been feeling down lately and I will be glad to get these to him. I am afraid that I am just like him – prone to sadness. Both of us are definitely not “talkers,” either, so it is difficult to share our feelings and our fears with others.
I finished the last Outlander book (Echo in the Bone, as an audiobook) and am eagerly waiting the next installment. I started listening to another book “Shopclass as Soulcraft” which reminds me of my days at Berea (Berea College), but also how I grew up – viewing work as beneficial and worthwhile. I am reminded again and again that most people in the world don’t think of work as I do – that all work has some value and that doing work gives us a feeling of accomplishment. I actually crave that feeling. I think that is a large part of why I craft – to have something tangible in the end.
It is Memorial Day here in the US; thank you to those who have sacrificed and ARE sacrificing for us.
