June 25: Thunderstormy Saturday AM

Andy is off to pick up our rental mini-van so we can take Silas to Portland in relative comfort. We HAVE a hike planned for this am (my favorite North Ridge of Cadillac) but at the moment, the rain we had this a.m. has turned into a bit of a thunderstorm and downpour number, so we'll see. I *do* cling to Gram's adage of "Rain before 7, stop before 11", and it's worked before, EVEN when I really, really wanted it to (like Field Day Friday this year!), so I won't give up.

However, in this quietly gloomy house, I need to clean up for Alissa, our wonderful cleaning person, so I need to spring into action--or maybe glide into action. More coffee, then cleaning up, I think!

That's the downside to all those lovely snow days I wrote about. . . TWO Saturday school days and then in school till Wed. WOW.

But I am done correcting and nearly done my little "gotta dos" and big ones like interviewing English candidates and the like. And I feel like I am refinding myself, slowly, slowly.

I am thinking about cooking and baking.

I am thinking about making fancy drinks.

I am thinking about going out to dinner with my beloved husband in Bar Harbor, all dressed up.

I am thinking about spending pretty much a whole day reading for fun.

I am NOT thinking about taking Silas to Portland to drop him off to go to Denmark forever.

I am thinking about knitting more, soon: finishing Andy's second sock (I'm on the foot already!) and then the sleeves for MY nimbus from Julie.

I am thinking about summer vacation, and that's. pretty. good.
