W^2 – mailbox

W^2 or W squared for Wordless Wednesday, July 20, 2022.

WOW, three months ago today our yard and mailbox had a very different look. Summer is in full swing here; it has been warm and humid but not the oppressive heat other places around the globe have been experiencing. We are blessed. The flowers and trees and birds are flourishing.

In April I woke to discover my wife’s mailbox in a state of winter – W^2 cruel and yesterday it was in a state of summer. Ninety-one days separate the posts and ninety-two, the pictures.

Summer is moving quickly and in a few scant weeks, I’ll be back at school, teaching kids and learning all sorts of new things.

In the meantime, I am going to make my summer days count. Four weeks from tomorrow I’ll have a classroom full of excited and anxious sixth graders. It’s going to be a great year, but I have the present to focus on, So I’d better jump up, jump in, and seize the day. Making the days Count one day at a time, focusing on the present and learning from the past.

How is the weather on your slice of the globe?

    1. Thank you Ingrid! It’s my wife’s pride and joy. She reminds when we talk to water it. Great to see you. I agree, northern Wisconsin beats Phoenix for summer hands down even with the occasional severe thunderstorm. I hope you and Al are well and enjoying life. Peace.

    1. Thank you Margaret, sadly few letters these days. It is easier to text or email than to sit down and pen an actual letter. Mostly bills, catalogues, and advertisements can be found Monday through Saturday. Thank you for our postal person. I am doing my part by sending notes of gratitude to other mailboxes!

Thanks for visiting MtDC. How are YOU Making YOUR Days Count?
