Love when weekends feel like weekends. This seems to be one of them, aided, no doubt, by the fact that Monday's a holiday. The short week next week is likely to be a bit of a bear, but I'm not going to worry about that just now.

Time with the landlords yesterday yielded the promise of some bamboo to replace the lost Japanese maple from my courtyard. Hope it comes soon, as things look pretty stark now.

Leisure is good.

My first American principal, who told me I'd be out of teaching within a year, used to remind us to "make the weekends count." He was pretty much a cruel jackass with a frighteningly clear conscience, but I have thought of that a lot. I know you are in a different situation with the weekends, being a Christian worker, but we are called to rest.
