Yesterday was a lazy day around here. My students I was supposed to tutor canceled out, saying I needed a vacation on Labor Day. Sounds good to me! I took it!
So instead… I picked up some more dowels for my hanging system on my rugs, picked up some stepping stones for the garden, and a few groceries for an evening dinner with a friend. Also went walking the banks of the Creek, and then proceeded to take a 2 hour nap! I guess when you need it, you need it! My goodness…
Spent the remainder of the afternoon designing rugs and preparing for another dinner guest. Had a great time with a young friend playing games in the evening. He confessed he felt nervous speaking English around me. I tutor English as a Second Language and his English is not very good. I have to be careful not to over correct, or he shuts right up and stops talking. He is very shy. Hubby started talking to him and they had a grand time. It was my turn to shut up and just let them go at it. 🙂 Some visits are like that.
I hope we see our young friend again soon. He plays a mean game of SCRABBLE. Tonight we taught him how to play CLUE. It will be nice to chat with him again sometime. I suspect he might like a movie night occasionally too, in-between his studies.
Could not sleep last night. Not sure if it was the 2 hour nap or the pie and ice-cream before bed that did it! However I was up until 3 AM. Had productive time of it. Cleaned my sewing studio upstairs. It has been a disaster for some months now. Also prepared new backing and drew Christmas rugs on it. Twelve more rugs set to go!
