Aaaaaahhh...Monday morning. Finally!
So it's nice to wake up Monday morning, pour a cup of coffee, and just listen to the quiet for a while. I am done "hosting" now for the season, other than a small family dinner on Christmas Day, not much more than any other Sunday. I am officially "winding down." It's a lovely feeling!
I got up today at 6:30am to give Bryan a good breakfast and a loving send-off to the college this morning. It is the first day of "Finals Week" there, and he is taking three exams today. It is his biggest exam day of the week. He has tests tomorrow and Wednesday, too; then he'll work (he's a student assistant for one of his professors) on Thursday (no tests to take, just helping to grade tests this time), and on Friday he has a luncheon and evaluation time for his role as a Student Ambassador at the college. Then he'll be on vacation! So we figure that by Wednesday, when the last exam question is answered, he'll be "winding down."
Nathan has a normal school week with the exception of a final exam on Wednesday for the Calculus course he takes at the college. He also takes a computer programming course there, but I believe they did a "final project" this last week, rather than an exam, so I think that's done. Like Bryan, after the exam on Wednesday, he will be "winding down."
The only thing that isn't yet winding down is the knife sharpening business. That old phone is still ringing (it just rang now, in fact!) so I'll need to rouse myself to start returning the weekend's worth of email and phone inquiries, and set up appointments for customers. Thanksgiving was really busy, with everyone cooking so much, but we seem to be pretty steady even now with calls. That's a blessing for Bryan's future farm...cuz it's going to take a lot of cash to get that started!
I wish you peace and joy this Monday morning, my friends!
Leave a note...I love to hear from you!
