Celebrate This Week!

                              Join us each weekend for Celebrate this week with Ruth Ayres.  
 When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build.
  A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember!

1.  A surprise free day!
I committed to several days of helping out during SBAC testing.  
On Tuesday, they were "sad" to inform me that I wasn't really needed.  
I was "happy" to leave the building and revel
in a day with no prior commitments!

2.  Free One-to-One Tech Consult with Ryan! 
Ryan gets my tech questions since my own kids don't live close enough to respond in person.  Usually Ryan gets chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, and then he answers my questions.  This time he was in our area for a wedding.  He helped me discover some new things about Photos, and we grabbed a quick lunch before I pushed him out the door to enjoy a beautiful afternoon.  And now I'm off to do my daily homework that Ryan requires so that I can remember what I learned.

3.  Laughter!
"Outside Mullingar" was our Friday evening out at the Seattle Rep.
Normally we go on Saturday afternoon, but we summoned the energy
to venture out on Friday evening (and avoid the weekend road work).  
We enjoyed a lovely walk from downtown to Seattle Center.
I delighted in an evening filled with laughter -
my own, my spouse's, and the rest of the audience!

4.  Anticipation!
We leave next week for Will's graduation from Cornell.
We can't wait to spend a few days in Ithaca with Sara and Will
before they arrive here at the end of the month.  


  1. Sounds like a very good week, Ramona. I hope you have a terrific time on the graduation journey-special time!

  2. I do love those unexpected surprises!
    Have a wonderful trip!

  3. Wish I had a tech guy to tutor me. How nice not to be needed for testing purposes! What a great week you had!

  4. We all need a tech guy (or gal). We FINALLY got one at school and I love him. The graduation trip sounds wonderful! Enjoy!

  5. Ramona, it is great to have a one-on-one tech consultation to answer all those nagging questions. I hope helped out with specifics about embedding text on photos for Spring's Symphony Gallery since I never got around to making a video on it. I bought a one-to-one membership at Apple so I could get specific help with my new iMac.

  6. Let's hear it for free time that is unexpected! That might be my favorite part of your week. Great tech people are to be celebrated as well. Thanks for sharing your celebrations.

  7. Oh, a graduation! What joy to look forward to, and celebrate, Ramona.

  8. Your post is full of smiles and seems to build to your anticipated MAJOR celebration - graduation. Congratulations - that is a reason to celebrate!

  9. I didn't know you guys go to the Rep it was one of my favorite acting venues (before having kids). I hope you have fun on your trip to the East Coast
