There it is. Just in the offing. Holidaaaaaaaaaays…
Sorry. Tomorrow is Friday. THE Friday. The Friday before Christmas Holidays. I’m a little happy about that.
Oh, and the beach photo? I don’t know. It just seemed appropriate. We’re not going away to some place sunny. It’s just that I’ve got that “happy-sunset-on-a-beach” feeling with the holidays coming up.
So, here is some surf. It’s a shot I took in Oregon this summer. I took whole bunch of shots along the beach so that on rainy, crappy days like today I could go to my photo files and feel the summer warmth.
Comfort from the past.
I’m sick. That horrible, sore, head-achy, want to lie around on the couch while slipping in and out of consciousness kind of sick. Besides the ginger ale and rest, I’m thinking about the beach, in hopes that the happy thoughts will help me feel better.
Anyone want to come with me?
I can leave before work tomorrow…really.
I went back to work, officially, today. I’ve been in the school (I’m a teacher, btw) a few times already this year, for a 9th grade orientation that I run and to put some things together for the year, but today was the first day that all the students were in the school and classes kicked into gear.
So…I’m thinking of the beach. And how much I wish I was there.
It’s not that I don’t love my job. I do. I feel that teaching is my calling – it chose me as much as I chose it. It is an incredible profession and most days I can’t believe that I get paid to have this much fun. I do, however, wish that I was still on holidays, lazily enjoying the ocean breeze, desperately avoiding real life.
To that end, I present to you…driftwood. A friendly reminder that only seven hours away from work is a beach. A happy place, as it were.
