Before explaining Today’s Perfect Moment, I want to explain a few of the Honourable Mentions.
A couple of my students gave me going away presents. I often get presents, but since Today was Valentine’s Day, I expected their chocolate/gift budget would be oriented toward their significant others. Since it wasn’t, I got a lovely bookmark and two boxes of Lindt Chocolate. Despite the Valentine’s Day theme, I don’t think these were for Valentine’s Day.
Preparation for the trip continues to roll on.
The temperature was into double digit lows plus the wind-chill but I didn’t have to wait for a bus today. When I arrived at the stops, the bus was already there waiting.
My lunch tasted good.
Today’s Perfect Moment
My teaching hours changed this past week. While I didn’t appreciate the shorter work hours and now have to find creative ways to recover them, there is one thing I did enjoy. I finished work early on a Friday for the first time since….actually I don’t remember when it was. I suspect it was mid Spring last year.
Normally I have to teach until 6:30 on a Friday. By the time, I get my administrative duties completed and putting stuff back, it is closer to 7 before I can leave the building. Today was different. I walked out the door at 3:30. The sun was still shining!
I should also add that this was my last day of work until my vacation is over. This made it extra-special. Obviously, it is Today’s Perfect Moment. It also didn’t feel too bad when everyone wished me a great vacation either.
