TWITL – week sixteen – into a long weekend

TWITL – week sixteen – into a long weekend

It’s actually the last day of my three day weekend. I’m not sure why today was chosen as “spring recess” but I don’t mind it either as a day off from work is always a good thing. April 22, the Graduates of Distinction, class of 2022, spent the day at visiting the schools in the…

TWITL – week fifteen – anniversary

Happy Anniversary to us! We’ve been married twenty-eight years. It doesn’t feel that long and yet it’s almost three decades. We must really like each other to still be married and happy about it, eh? We have so many more good days than bad and for that, I am so grateful. We took this weekend…

TWITL – week fourteen – warm spring days

TWITL – week fourteen – warm spring days

The past week was warm, warmer than it should be considering it’s springtime. Why can’t the weather be a gradual change? It would be so much nicer. We had a lovely Saturday. We headed to the baseball fields to watch our little friend Addison play softball. It’s so cute watching kids play sometimes and lo,…

TWITL – week thirteen – end of spring break

TWITL – week thirteen – end of spring break

Here we are at the end of spring break. I will surely miss those long weekends I took though I might have wanted to work one more day than I did because I never fully caught up on my work. Ah well, lesson learned. Even though it sometimes takes me a little bit of time…

TWITL – week twelve – middle of spring break

TWITL – week twelve – middle of spring break

It’s the middle of spring break and I’m in the midst of a four day weekend. (This will probably post on Monday sometime, I think.) It’s raining outside but I can’t really hear it right now. I peeked out the window and I think I see little drops in the puddles. We hit the farmers…

TWITL – week eleven – spring break begins

TWITL – week eleven – spring break begins

Spring has begun! I remember when I used to long for spring, when it was my favorite season of all the seasons. Spring meant baseball, my birthday, days of sunshine and cool breezes. Nowadays, the actual feeling of spring doesn’t seem to last as long as I’d like. The cool breezes seem fleeting and the…

TWITL – week ten – the last breath

TWITL – week ten – the last breath

I never know what to say when someone dies. Different things swirl through my head– moments I might have shared, stories I might have heard, other people’s experiences. If I knew the person, however fleetingly, I hear their voice as an echo, a flicker of memory. When someone I know passes away, I always try…

TWITL – week nine – winter’s reminder

TWITL – week nine – winter’s reminder

It’s March now but the weather this past week was wintery (for here anyway). I didn’t mind at all since it meant wearing sweaters and such. Besides, it’s still technically winter and can we just enjoy the cooler weather for a bit longer, please? I’m in no hurry for springtime… Even though Saturday was a…
