When you are in education, most folks think you get the summer “off.” It’s not quite like that, at least when you are in administration. Summer break is a time to get things done that are hard to do when the campus is filled with students and teachers. So I look forward to a more relaxed schedule and checking things off my To Do list.
I am also feeling the need to make stuff so starting the summer break with a quilt retreat is perfect. I mucked around with one idea for part of yesterday, moved on to sewing triangle blocks, and finished the evening with some knitting. I am also begging to sketch a bit. I did this one a week ago but there are some beautiful wild flowers and trees outside so I think I will venture out and make some more marks today.
I am also working on cultivating a habit of gratitude this summer so today there will be coffee, a bit of time on my mat, and catching up with my quilting friends.
