The Sliding Sun

When the students arrive at school in the mornings, we meet them at the door with a thermometer and hand sanitizer. I distinctly remember being blinded and baked by the sun at the beginning of the school as Chloe and I stood outside.

The sun moved as winter approached, and we were soon in the cool winter shade. But as the days grow longer again, I can see the sun approaching. I wonder how long before it overtakes our position and we are bathed in its radiation once again.

For Babies?

When our classroom spraybottle of sanitizer runs out, we refill it in the principal’s office. Yesterday when I went in for a refill, I noticed a stack of books on the table.

Ha! I was in a rush, so I only looked at the top one, but it was awesome! It looked like a kid’s book, but it was talking about nuclear reactions inside stars and the size of the universe. I loved it!

I should go back and look at the others today…

A Couch-shaped Couch

Before my visitors came, my couch was always folded down in the “bed” position so I could recline on it. I put it up so my visitors could sit like normal people.

I haven’t yet put it down. Honestly, I haven’t had much time to sit in it. Last night after church, it was pretty late already, so I didn’t even turn the tv on. I just read. Yay! My plans to read are working out!

A Small Detail

Yesterday was an exercise day. After I exercised I changed into my teacher clothes. I got dressed so quickly, I didn’t notice that my shirt was inside-out. My coworker saw it before school, but by then the kids were arriving, so I just left it.

No one else noticed. At the end of the day, I told my students that it reminded me of a tv show I’ve been watching called “Monk” where the main character notices every detail of his surroundings.

It makes me want to try another weird thing and see if I can get away with it…

Another Pot Post

Well, I’m doing two pot posts in a row. I can’t help myself, because some pots I ordered came in the mail yesterday and I’m excited about them. They are sold as bonsai pots, but I’ll be using them for succulents.

I’ve gotten several succulents recently, and I want to display them well. With these tray-shaped pots, I’ll be able to put more than one plant per pot and make little arrangements! Woo hoo! I will have so much fun deciding which plants go where!
