Well, for a “first week of school” I had a pretty good week. There were moments when I missed my colleagues at my old school, but I think I made the right decision in leaving when I did. I have a good class and I’ve been made to feel welcome by my new colleagues. And there’s nothing better than getting home before 6pm!!!
Had an interesting experience this week. I was driving to work Friday and glanced down at my speedometer. Surprise! It said I was going 100mph!!! Now that’s a bit difficult to do when you are slowing down for the oncoming signal light. Turns out my speedometer has chosen to die. It now permanently registers 120mph. My son says that’s because I own a Ford. Others tell me that it is because my car is a “first year of production” car. I say it’s because I bought a lemon! Already had the suspension fixed, replaced the battery. My fuel gauge doesn’t work. Now my speedometer doesn’t work either. Only have 70,000 miles on the car. L
The weather has cooled a bit this weekend and we got some rain, so I’ve had a chance to put some daisies in the ground. I don’t have a “plan” for my new garden yet, but I’m putting in some basics that always work for me. Every gardener has a list of ten to twenty favorite perennials and annuals. Friends have donated to my barren plot and I now have a little color here and there.
We’re gearing up for Heritage Day. Those of you who read my other blog know that I love any event that brings people to Caddo, and Heritage Day is our biggest annual event. Lots of food, fun, and entertainment. But that also means lots of planning, so several dozen people will start answering lots of phone calls and probably losing a little sleep as preparations begin in earnest.
Nothing else new and exciting. I’ll try to think of something profound one of these days!
