Random Musings on the First Day of Summer Vacation

Well, it’s Saturday which would be a day off anyway; however yesterday was THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL, which makes today the first day of summer vacation. It is every teacher’s goal to make it through the year to this particular nirvana.

Garage Sales were pathetic today. Last week The Goddess of Garage Sales and the Diva of Thrift Stores rewarded my sacrifice of the Library Lock In and sent wonderful finds my way. This weekend they took them all back. I came home 3 books and some books for school. Hopefully the Goddess and the Diva noted that I spent $10 on 12 books for the library and will reward me next weekend. Garage sale shoppers are perpetual optimists.

It rained all over the state of Texas today, including here and in Dallas which was hosting a major golf tournament. The commentators on the Golf Channel can blather on for 30 minutes on the arcane topic of water in the bunkers. Who knew it was a topic of such fascination? Yawn

I dusted off my blog & cleaned up my Blog Roll. Deleted inert blogs. Wrote some posts. Caught up and commented on some of my favorites. Need to find some more favorites. Productive

Cooked a real dinner! Oven roasted potatoes, carrots and onions with fresh rosemary, sausage and blueberry muffins. Yum.

Sold some books. In fact; I sold a record number of books this week. That’s a good thing – there is a wedding in daughter #2’s future. $$$$$

Of course that means I get to spend tomorrow packing up said books. Boring.

Best of all, for the next 60 days I don’t have to pack a lunch! Celebration!

Tut, tut, tut. The Colonial, played this past weekend, is in Fort Worth, not Dallas. Dallas has its own tournament called the Byron Nelson.

As always, I love your blog.
