The sun is shining for the moment, I'm home, and my Hughesnet (way too weather affected) High (LOL!)Speed Internet is actually working through the thin high clouds above PFHQ ... so I get to post something!
Well, maybe ... we'll see at the end of this tale... when I click on publish ...
I am finally through with school related trainings until the end of summer forced unemployment.
(Don't call it "summer vacation" to a teacher... we are not kids ... it's a 2+month unpaid furlough)
So, yes, I chased every paid "training op" I could find.
Collectively, with weekends home in between, I have spent about 14 days living in motels in Orlando and I am so glad to be back here at PFHQ where the Bahia grass and the pond are high.
It's been a rainy summer ... which gives me joy and angst.
Angst at the roof which needs a redo and joy at the abundance of water standing all around the county and especially in my pond ... which is actually a pond again.
Two nights ago, in the light pitter-patter after the last tropical deluge of the day, my pond lit up with the sounds of Barking Tree Frogs.
So, I left the dogs behind, grabbed head lamp and camera, and headed down slope through the dripping forest.
