Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Witch Hazel

I have had a lot of trouble trying to access blogger lately with this new system, so I am even further behind in posting than I wanted to be. In two days it will be the first day of spring and we are still snow covered and freezing, but the witch hazel is in bloom. At first I couldn't believe it when the flashes of red caught my eye. I had to walk right up to the shrub and marvel at its audacity to bloom when the temperature is still dipping below freezing.

March Enters Like a Lion

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

It is incredible how easy it is to get out of the habit of writing, and doing something just for yourself. I missed the entire month of February. So much happened. Part of the problem is that I love posting photos but I have no time to take photos and download them. Also I spend a lot of time working on lessons plans and marking and then I shut down for the night. I think I'll just start with a list of what has happened this month

- School play: The Importance of Being Ernest, coordinated costumes and supervised students
- Attended Workshop: How to Run a School Fashion Show.
- Black History Month Quilt Exhibition: gave a talk at the opening
- Black History Month Quilt Exhibition: conducted a gallery talk and quiltmaking workshop
- Lunar Banquet: Year of the Pig
- taught drama students how to make masks
- taught history students how to make terracotta pots.
- report cards
- parent night
- completed a lovely pair of purple baby booties with Dale Baby Ull
- still knitting baby blanket
- read: "The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs"
- came home early one day and cooked dinner for the whole family: Taco Night
