It was a long day. I spent most every hour talking for much of the periods explaining projects. Mid day a student who had gone to China over the summer gave me a bag of Chinese candy-- all gluten free!! It was a wonderful gift, a reminder of the relationships we build and the meaning they have. I snacked on the sesame seed covered jelly that was yummy. I stayed late with kids to plan next month's newspaper. I picked up Balt and gave him a needed bath. I had left overs for dinner, finishing up my corn chowder finally. By the end of the day I was exhausted. I fell asleep on the couch watching the news, then woke up and got caught up into Dateline mystery. I'm so ready for a 3-day weekend.
