Teaching – travel

July 12, 2013

Teaching again – and because I’m driving I was able to get ALL my supplies for my Surface Design Sampler Platter class in one gargantuan suitcase. Buried down in there are screens and squeegees, paint, stamp carving material, kits, beads, notebooks, sketchbooks. Chocolate of course. And many other things. Still needs a bolt of fabric…

photo-2Problem is – I can’t lift it into the back of the car. Well – I did but it wasn’t pretty. After six months of recovering from Plantar Fasciitis, major abdominal surgery, a badly sprained ankle, and most recently a hack job of a mole removal (wear your sunscreen people!!!) I’ve barely got a good functioning limb. No complaints (well – yes I was whining wasn’t I) because everything is almost better. But I’m missing the strength I had from going to the gym regularly.

Life is good – it could be worse – it gets better every day! Especially because I’m teaching this weekend. I LOVE being with students!!!

    Jayna – I know, I know. When I fly this class gets three boxes shipped and my normal sized suitcase full of supplies. I have this puzzle-loving mind that loves to fit everything I can neatly into a space so it’s fun to get it all into one unit. Easier to wheel through a door too. I have my little AV briefcase in tow as well. One trip turned out nicely in this case as there was a summer deluge going on as I moved my stuff from the car down the very long sidewalk to the door of the classroom building. Thank heavens for rain coats and wheels eh?

    Dearest Lyric. The problem is solved by taking two slightly smaller suitcases. This leaves more room for chocolate.
