Yesterday was our school’s annual May Day celebration. Last year we couldn’t have it because of covid. This year, the kids performed as usual, but the parents weren’t there, and it was broadcast on youtube and facebook.
The kids did a great job. It was so fun to watch them.
I bought a fuchsia a few days ago. I am still very excited about it, but I’m having a hard time getting it potted. I have a hanging basket I got from a dumpster corral in my condo complex. It is the perfect place for my fuchsia, but I have to get the chains the right length so the plant doesn’t become desiccated by my air conditioner exhaust.
In the meantime, it’s sitting on my lanai floor. And it’s blooming! Yay! I love it!
I went to the dentist yesterday. It had been a long time since my last visit.
The cleaning was really uncomfortable, and I was really disappointed that I didn’t get any positive reinforcement for the fact that I’ve been flossing daily for more than a year. But I am glad to be back into the swing of things. I have good dental habits, but not good teeth, so I need to keep up with my dentist visits.
They were promoting floss made by a small independent company. The hygienist said it’s thicker than regular floss, so it cleans well. I decided to get some. It came in several intriguing flavors. I decided to try orange.
It is indeed thicker than regular floss. I didn’t taste or smell the orange very strongly. Maybe that was because I had just eaten some jellybeans. And it wasn’t as thick as my Tom’s of Maine floss. I’ll keep this in my medicine cabinet, but I think I’ll stick with Tom’s for now.
Sometimes when I’m exercising, my trainer and I take a break to admire a beautiful sunrise. Yesterday was a particularly pretty one. They sky was purple. I wanted to record it in the memory archive.
I heard a whole thing on the radio once about the clouds in Hawaii. They are low-altitude because it’s an island. A larger landmass can have clouds that are higher up. The low clouds result in beautiful sunrises and sunsets. They also cause our plentiful rainbows. Yay clouds!
It’s Star Wars Day! Yay! May the fourth be with you!
This is teacher appreciation week. A couple of the teachers at our school put together some materials for parents that let them know it was happening and made some suggestions for how to celebrate. They also decorated the school this morning. It was awesome!
Many of my homeroom kids brought me treats. So nice!
That wasn’t all! One of the eighth grade parents brought me lunch! Wow! She had arranged it with me on Friday. Thai food! She even asked me what I liked. I got massaman curry. Mmm… It was so good…
