One Of Those Days

One of those good days.

Friday, when I don't have to be on campus. I have lots of essays to grade --I don't assign many essays, because it's science. But also because I hate grading them. It's physically painful after a while.

So, I got quite a few of them graded, but in between ---

I washed and dried the sheets so I get to climb into a clean bed tonight.

I put a turkey breast to slow cook in the crockpot.

I cooked a sweet potato, and mashed it up with butter, salt, and pepper, and had it for lunch.

I walked around the (chilly) garden to check the progress of the spring flowers.

I had a catnap with Cinnamon in my lap.

I visited Facebook.

I had extra alone time because Rob picked Emma and a friend up after school and took them to a used record store that is a 45 minute drive away.

I started a mixed media page in my art journal.

And I felted some random swirls onto some scrap fabric to get the hang of felting before I start a real project.

Now that is an excellent Friday.
Gratuitous Flower Photo :-)
I hope everyone else's weekend is off to a good start!


  1. That is an excellent Friday. Are your Crocuses blooming, or is this photo from last year?

    1. They are blooming! But these are close to the house.

  2. That does sound (and look like!) a beautiful day.
    I packed up and drove 90 minutes to a scrapbooking retreat on Friday. The views on a sunny day were worth the nagging foot pain and I was able to accomplish quite a bit over the weekend.
    I'd like to hear more about your art journal.

  3. Sounds like a great day! Your Crocuses are stunning! They're so beautiful with the oblique spring light shining through them. :)

  4. That is a good day! My goodness, the colors in that photo are so vibrant the flowers seemed to pop right off the screen as I scrolled down- so beautiful!

  5. Any day spent doing things that make you happy is a good day. :o)
