Speaking of Best Days Ever

Autumn is made for perfect days. I have had two days that fall into the "perfect days" category and today looks to be doing the same.

I had better revel in it now, because the real work begins tomorrow.

  • 4th graders (they have a lot of energy but that's better than having a bunch of apathy. I am of course referring to the 8th graders I taught this winter)
  • 65 degrees, sunny, breezy
  • Driving through the pretty part of Manchester,
  • Groceries and looking at (and wishing I had the money to buy) white asparagus and graffiti eggplant and peaches
  • Bavaria (those of you who visited in the spring might remember me saying that I really wanted to try this restaurant. It was great. Pretty intense-lots of meat)
  • Watching Tootsie
  • Tom Salleck's mustache in The Killers (this movie is the worst I have see in a long time and that includes the Twilight movies. If you know me, you know that is saying a lot).
  • Sleeping in
  • Going to the Hillsboro County Agricultural Fair in New Boston
  • Gorgeous weather
  • Bunnies
  • Sheep
  • Goats (including dwarf breeds and babies!)
  • Baby Donkey
  • Chickens
  • Gelato
  • Square Dancing
  • Pizza
  • Looking at Apple Pie winners
  • Going down the giant slide. Twice.
  • The Drive to New Boston
  • Early bed
  • Church
  • Cloudy
  • Rain
  • Rest
  • Hoodie
  • Buttercup Squash
  • Italian Sausage
  • Whoopie pie
Like I said, though, the real work starts tomorrow.

It's strange and kind of scary to think that I only have 40 days left here. That's 5 and 1/2 weeks. Just over a month. I only have 4 and 1/2 weeks left of fall programs. I will be home soon whether it be on a plane or via road trip.

I'm not ready. I don't have anything to do. I have no plan. I don't know when I will have a plan. But the important thing is how much I have learned about myself, my ideals, what's important, and the life in general since I have been out here.

It's too early for the big end-of-the-internship reflection so I will stop with that.

I hope the end of everyone's summer is going great.
