Five Things Friday, Sneakily Achieved. . . .
So calm in that direction. Turning back into the house, I confront the pile of papers I will be marking this weekend (2). Also on the weekend's agenda is a visit from one of our daughters, whose partner is heading off to Europe for a few days -- she doesn't get over very often and we're excited about getting her to ourselves. (3)
We'll start our day together though, Pater and I, with a yoga class. (4) I'm gradually getting back the range of motion in my shoulder and besides gently helping with that, yoga will remind me how to breathe. Very useful, that.
And in between yoga, marking, visiting, and breathing, I will be reading assiduously, trying to keep up with the reading I've assigned my students. And thinking wistfully of all the other books I want to get to. If you're looking for something to read, you might want to scan my list of Books Read in 2013. (5) I finally got 'round to posting it on my other blog -- only took me a full month of the new year! It's much sketchier than I'd hoped, with most review/responses rather cursory, quite a few accompanied by no response at all. But still, we inveterate readers are always looking for what to read next and you might find some inspiration there.
There we are, then. I suspect I may be too busy with family and work to post much over the weekend. But I did leave you with Five Things this Friday and you might remember to breathe yourself, if you "embiggen" the photo below and gaze at the soothing shades of the horizon at sunrise. . . .
