Good Things

It’s so sunny out today, I walked to the post office to mail my taxes out, then stopped in at a cafe where a bar tender convinced me to drink a very fruity drink with her to celebrate the sunniness.  It had seven different kinds of alcohol in it.  Good thing I was walking.

Last Friday I was offered a job as a full time fiction writing instructor at Youngstown State University.  I accepted the position happily, happily, and celebrated all weekend long.

I’m catching up with grading.  One more stack of essays to go and I’ll be free again.  At least for a couple of weeks.

Did I mention it’s really sunny out?  I’m going to keep coming back around to that, I think, all day long.
