Good Sunday morning. If we were having coffee together, I would catch you up on a busy week.
My plate was quite full in getting through an observation (after some 37 years teaching one would think an observation would be a piece of cake, but it always rattles me). The observation went well. My first graders are darling and a poetry lesson is always fun.
A northeaster ushered March in, threatening the coastal beaches and twisting large branches from trees. Luckily, the power remained steady and the commute home Friday night was not too bad. I spent Saturday morning catching up on housecleaning—a thankless chore. I find myself cursing under my breath as I scrub, vacuum, and mop. At least it got done. I did try a new recipe—Vietnamese Tuna Burger on a bed of broccoli slaw. Fresh tuna, sesame oil and substituting parsley for cilantro made for a very successful meal. And then the best news of the day was that my niece had a healthy 7lb-10oz little boy. The clan keeps expanding with joy.
I am striving for blog consistency. I am so grateful for the Weekend Coffee Share. It has been great for consistency but getting my family shorts posted remains on a monthly schedule. Time management continues to be my challenge. With a fury, I did get a Saab Story posted before February ended. I am also thinking I may have to break up my WordPress website into two so I can separate the storytelling and general ramblings from my book’s news and events. I did try to make some headway on my new book but once I sat down, exhaustion got the best of me and I fell asleep. I think I will spend a good part of today, Sunday, in the library and, later, meet my new grandnephew. Holding a new baby is luscious.
Have a wonderful day, Everyone—make it great.
