Sunshine (Ahhhh)

Today, I drove to work in something less than pitch dark for the first time in weeks.

At noon, sunshine flooded into my classroom and I wanted to be a cat and bask in it. My boys dawdled with their assignments and gazed wistfully out of the window. Who could blame them?

After my work day at school was over, my friend and coworker Janine and I took a vigorous (for us) walk around the Village of Lake George. Too soon, the sun was slipping behind Prospect Mountain, but at least we got our walk in.

Driving home, away from the mountains, a bit more daylight lingered. And for the first time in weeks, I arrived home before pitch dark.

There is hope...
