Erika woke me up before my alarm went off. She got up early to go study at Starbucks before her summer school class started. I too had to get up early for a summer school class I am taking this week at Edgewood College on Developing Collaborative Groups; the Adaptive Schools Model. It's valuable information, but it is difficult being back in the classroom from 8am to 3:30pm. I must say it is nice to have Keurig at 6am.
Once Erika got out to her car she found it had been ran-sacked. I found that someone had gone through my car as well but all they found was dog bone treats in the glove compartment and they didn't seem interested. Luckily they missed my coin purse in side of the door. Poor Erika did not fair so well. The kids (I assume it was kids that went through our cars) took two iPods and her wallet. On the upside, they tossed all the contents out of her wallet and just took the wallet, which makes me think there must have been a girl in the bunch. Why would a boy want a coach wallet? So now we remember not to forget to lock our car doors and become a bit more vigilant about locking our home up. There are vandals out there.
Melissa picked me up from my class and the two of us enjoyed ice tea/coffee (made with the Keurig) and a late afternoon of catching up on lawn chairs in the sun. We went out for Mexican together and the hours seems to rush by as we discussed our lives, our futures, our families, our art and our ideas. She shared with me the poetry of Reina Maria Rilke and I talked about the book I am reading on Concious Living. It is wonderful to have a friend to share life with. Once Mel left for home, I did dishes and vacuumed. I worked on my homework and wanted to stay up reading but need to get bed in order to get up early for class tomorrow.
"For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation."--Rainer Maria Rilke
