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 moment....in 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 jobs....jobs 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.
