An Exciting Find

On Sunday when it became apparent that I was going to have to go home instead of working, I made a quick stop at the grocery store. I needed sandwich ingredients for my lunches for the week. While I was shopping, I stopped by the cookie aisle. I was going to have cookies on my drive home. I was most excited to see Biscoff cookies. These are the cookies that I get on the airplane! And it’s not just two cookies, it’s a whole bunch of them! I ate half the package on my car trip.

There are still some left. I ate more last night. Mmm…

Apparently, it's Europe's favorite cookie with coffee.

    Aren’t those the cookies they make into a spread? Google search…..yes! http://www.biscoff.com/indulge/biscoff-spread How is that even possible? I feel the need to do some research.

    How are you feeling today?

      Yesterday I was better, but today I’m feeling crummy again. I’m hoping that when the students arrive this morning I’ll get a kick of adrenaline and feel better. Report card grades are due today, so I’ll be doing some work after school no matter what I feel like. There’s nothing like a deadline to keep you moving!

Change of Plans

Palm Sunday services were nice. Lots of good music. Unfortunately, I wasn’t feeling well. There is a sickness making its way through school and I think I got it. I had a headache, runny nose, and a general feeling of tiredness. I had planned to work at school most of the day, but instead I went home and went to bed. I didn’t even use the couch – I actually went to bed. I think the rest was good for me. Hopefully today won’t be so bad now. And hopefully the fact that I didn’t do school work yesterday won’t make my week unbearable.

Failed Repair

I tried to fix the radio antenna on my truck yesterday. The stump of the old antenna is broken off inside the screw hole. I bought one of those things that are reverse-threaded and you drill into the stump and since you’re going in reverse, the screw stump is supposed to come out.

It was hard to get the bit to bite into the stump because the surface was uneven. I did get a hole drilled, but no loosening happened. The package of the reverse-screw bit says I should try the next size larger. I didn’t want to go back to the store, so it will have to wait for another day.

It's a little off-center.

Leaves Left

I had recess supervision duty yesterday. While I was out there, I was looking at all the oak trees. They still have their leaves. I’ve noticed this in oak trees before, but yesterday I was wondering when they will finally drop their leaves. Will it happen when it gets consistently warmer? Will it be when new leaves start growing?

I think I’ve never noticed when the leaves drop because I didn’t have oak trees available to me for daily observation. There are many specimens on my school’s property, so this year I may finally get my answer.

A Foretaste of Things to Come

It was so warm yesterday! After school, the air blowing into my open classroom window smelled warm. When I stood outside for after-school parking lot duty, the sun was almost too warm. And during my drive home last night, I used the air conditioner in my truck. The air conditioner! It was raining really hard and my windows were fogging, so at first it was just to defog the windows. It felt so good, I just let it run.

It's supposed to be cold again today.
