Feb vacation

It's spring break, Feb vacation, and President's Day. The students are off for the week, several teachers took the week off too, and DHHS across the street was closed. So it was a quiet day at work.

I graded papers all day, and it took me all day. Tomorrow I will work on lectures: streamline, cut out excess, and build in more small group activities. Tomorrow we're having a potluck at work, a turkey dinner. There will be roast turkey, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and rolls. I made 2 chocolate pies. Chocolate fudge, not pudding. Rich dense chocolate fudge pies.

Lots of teachers are soaking up sun. One went to Florida, one to Cancun, and a Caribbean cruise for another. It was sunny here today. But the wind was strong, and bitterly cold. The backyard is one quarter frozen grass, and three quarters pockmarked ice. There's more grass every day. Subzero temps are predicted for tonight. Everywhere you look it's grey and brown. I'm thinking of turquoise water, blazing sun, and white sand.
