Each day, I add new material to my webpage about Nature Spirits.

Each day, I work outside in the early morning for six hours on home improvement projects. I read indoors in the afternoon, when the temperatures are above 95 degrees.
Next week, I return to work as the Media and Technology Services Supervisor for the Corning Union Elementary School District. I was a bit surprised that, despite the serious budget problems in the State of California, that there was enough money available in the CUESD to return me to work part-time for the 12th year in a row. After they lay me off, probably in August 2011, when I will be over 65 years of age, I plan to retire on Social Security.
