Saturday was a funny day. I really expected to be busier. It started off that way - I had to rush out the door to have coffee with a friend (another one where we see each other sporadically, but it's like we talk on a daily basis. This guy is one of the reasons I decided not to teach: I will never be able to match the enthusiasm he has for his profession and his students. Students deserve a teacher like him). Then, (I thought*) I had to rush out the door to my great-aunt's 90th Birthday. Since the temperature dropped about 15 degrees in 24 hours, and we got a few inches of snow, I knew I'd be cozy in warm in a wool skirt, worn with boots and slouched socks for lattes, with ballet flats and a cardigan for tea.
*I totally forgot that since I was going I was going with my sister, it wouldn't be so rushed, as she runs on "Debbie Time." I hung a new organizer for our winter scarves/toques/mitts, tidied up our storage closet, caught up on the horrible games I plan on the iPad, and read a few blogs before she called to say she was on her way.
Sunday, we went to my niece's first birthday party. For a kid that doesn't like cake, she's pretty sweet, so it was a lot of fun. I made her a set of dress up clothes - tutus, aprons, animal ears, capes. I think her cousins were closer to the age to use them, but she'll always get older!
So that was my weekend! This week, I'm meeting with a hiring agency, having an all-day playdate with my niece, and maybe even having friends over this weekend. What are you up to?
