President’s Day Painting

I was off for Presidents Day yesterday. It was wonderful! I fully intended to paint my bedroom, but first I slept in. Then I went to a diner for breakfast. (This is the only picture I took yesterday, so I’ll post it)

Then I went to Home Depot to get the paint. I spent a lot of time walking around the garden center. ahhhh…. plants….

When I got home, I sat down on the couch for a moment and fell asleep.

I finally got to painting at 3pm. I didn’t finish before I had to eat and exercise. I did get most of the cutting in done though, so that’s good. Next weekend, I can just do the roller stuff and I’m done! Woo hoo!

Pink Pen

I had yesterday off for Lincoln’s birthday, and I have Monday off for Presidents Day. I was going to procrastinate doing school work until the end of the weekend, like I would normally do, but I had bad school-dreams Thursday night into Friday morning. So I got up and went to school.

I’ve been using a pink pen to grade, and it ran out yesterday while I was working. I went to my desk to get a pen to replace it, and the only suitable pen I found was… pink! Ha! I guess I’ll be using pink for a while longer.

I finished my grading. I have some planning and organizing to do still. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow after church. Or maybe Monday. I do like to procrastinate…

Lent Lights

It was a long and crazy day yesterday. As I approached my house, I saw that the lights on my neighbor’s roof line were lit. That’s not unusual. They light them at Christmas, of course, and at all different times during the year. But what WAS unusual was that the lights were all purple.

My neighbor had purple lights lit for the first day of Lent! Was that a coincidence? I think not.

They have a room on top of their garage. I’m so curious about it.

Curious Combination

Happy Birthday to my nephew Daniel! And to Samith! Woo hoo!

Also, Happy Ash-entines Day! What an interesting combination of days – Ash Wednesday and Valentines Day. That chapel message writes itself though, and I’m on the schedule for chapel today. Nice! We’ll do ashes too, using the old tried-and-true method of burned corks.

I got some valentines for my homeroom kids. They’re Star Wars! 🙂

One of the moms is bringing some food in for a Valentines breakfast. Hopefully the craziness will be short-lived. I like a structured schedule.

In the evening, we’ll have the first of our Wednesday night Lenten services. I absolutely LOVE ending the day with a church service, but it sure makes for a long day.

Belated Birthday

I got three gifts yesterday at school. The first one was in homeroom. One of the eighth graders gave me this:

Ha! I love it! I’ve seen it on the internet before. It’s so cool! I will definitely be trying some of the recipes.

The second gift was right after recess. One of the kids had this on his sleeve:

A ladybug! In February! Crazy.

The third gift came at the end of the day. A seventh grader came to my room at the end of the day and gave me this:

She said her dad remembered that lemon meringue pie was my favorite, and he got me one! It was so good. Mmm…
