Notes from the quirky life of a practicing contemplative (emphasis on "practicing"), teacher, learner, auntie, weirdo, and dog mama.

straight out of the camera
This weekend I'm helping dogsit Sadie (on the left) and Diesel for my cousins. I stayed overnight with them and fed them, petted them, gave them treats - I enjoyed it as much as they did. Later, after I'd returned home to my aunt & uncle's house, my uncle brought them over to play in the back yard, and they found me. Does my heart good!
This week I began tutoring a cousin in pre-K skills (which were pre-1st-grade skills in my day!). I haven't tutored someone at this level for a while, and I love it! And this girl has the best focusing abilities I've ever seen in someone her age.
