Outdoors: We spent time today gathering up more fallen limbs and sticks and stacking them up for the yard trash collection tomorrow. I admit that I hauled out some much older logs that have been laying around, ones that fell sometime ago when there was no special yard trash collection to take them away. I have a lot of trees--I lose count when I count--but more than 20. This means a lot of falling branches, falling pine cones, falling leaves, and continuous maintenance. But I love my trees.
Indoors: While I was home for the hurricane days, I did not grade any papers. I brought them home, but they stayed in my bag. I don't know what the problem was. I just couldn't bring myself to look at them. So, last weekend I had to catch up. Essays are such a mountain for me. I love working on them when I am with the students, reading and helping them as they go, but when they all get stacked up in front of me--eh! I'd rather not.
What I did do, was work on finishing up my sweater. I had to do one sleeve over again because for some reason I thought I could do it while I watched TV. Ha! Of course, this thing isn't done yet and it is still all out of shape and wobbly. But! It is going to get done. I can see that now.
Indoors: Today, I made Rosh Hashanah honey cake, even though we really don't celebrate Rosh Hashanah. It made the house smell like cinnamon and honey and spice--so good!
Also! We scooted out to eat Korean food--one of my favorites, especially at this place that brings the hot coals to your table. So fun and delicious!
We'll see what this next week brings.
