Sara has added to her Cheerleader Extraordinaire persona by becoming a Jumper Really-Good. Steven and I enjoyed two hours of running jumping shouting laughing healthy good-looking teenagers in the midst of one of Albuquerque’s finest spring windstorms last evening. It was great fun actually. What makes individual sports so much more interesting and difficult than team sports is the competing against yourself aspect.
Sara’s a beautiful high jumper and made it to the last round before downing the bar (or whatever you call it when you knock the bar down). And then you get back up and start all over on a new day.
A few photos before turning back to my new-apartment obsession and neglected writing. But…today…finally a writing day. Tearing myself away from fiddling with placement of this rug, that tchotchke. Writing.
So the best part of the week was…the ARRIVAL OF TERESA. My amazing granddaughter and special traveling buddy of many years. And she was joined yesterday by her boyfriend Jonathan who’s practically worthy of her. I’m pretty sure. They’re off on a Santa Fe adventure right now, La Fonda and the Shedd. Then back here to real life; they both work remotely, Teresa only until she’s off to Berkeley and grad school in a few weeks, Jonathan only for a couple of days while his HP work space is being renovated. So we’ll all go to work tomorrow as usual-a little happier and sadder by the past week.
