Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

March 15th - The Ides of March

Outside My Window...
at school the sky is gray and there are a few scattered showers.  It is supposed to rain off and on today and then colder air is coming back.  Sigh!  I guess it is a good thing that today is not part of my Spring Break. 
I am thinking...
how nice it would be to be on Spring Break right now and be hanging at the beach.  I need a break!
I am thankful for...
the fact that for the the state of Alabama...I have a job.  We will be experiencing proration again for the fifth year and I don't care what the governor says about no teachers losing their will be lost...where else is the 400,000 coming from.
From the learning rooms...
students are quiet while I am having my planning period.  I hear French being spoken next door.
From the kitchen...
or in my case cafeteria I smell a variety of things being prepared for lunches in a couple of hours.
I am wearing...
khaki capri pants, a turquoise, brown, and white top, black sweater and sparkly Yellow Box sandals.
I am creating...
an  IPad lesson for my students.  Right now it is downloading the app.
I am going...
to the hospital shortly and register my mom for a CT scan she is having today.
I am reading...
Jonah, Navigating a Life Interrupted
I am hearing...
the janitors walky talky, Samantha teaching her class French, Mr. B teaching his class Math, students shuffling their feet down the hall way.  I wish they would learn to pick their feet up.
On my mind...
how much I need to accomplish this week.
Around the house...
the floor needs sweeping and mopping, the carpet vaccuuming, the kitchen cleaned, the bed made, dusting to be done.  I played this weekend and did not do housework.  I think I rebeled a bit...I hate the fact that I work all week and then have to work on Saturday.  I wish I had a cleaning fairy.
One of my favorite things...
rain + book + bed = total joy
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
work on taxes, teach, clean house, wash....I mean I am not going to have to spend my Saturday cleaning.  I want to go to The Villages of Little Texas.
Small window into my life...

Light Conquers Darkness

If you’re in a darkened room,

And a small candle is lit,

The darkness retreats away

From light the candle emits
If two rooms are side-by-side,

One is dark, the other, bright,

And a door opens between,

The dark is conquered by light!
So when your life seems dark,

Just remember this law:

Light always conquers darkness!

Soon the darkness will withdraw,

And your heart will become bright,

As it is filled with the light.

Why is it kids never learn to pick up their feet when they walk?
