I substituted for a 9th grade English class today; pretty easy, and nothing like actually teaching, but it's decent money, so I took it. It went well enough and slightly allayed my worries about the difference in grade levels. I spent an hour or two in my new school yesterday, transferring my twenty boxes of books and files from the first floor to the second. Thank goodness there is an elevator, and the secretary loaned me a cart, so it only took four trips. I managed to unpack about two thirds of the boxes, using two drawers of the file cabinet for book storage. I won't be able to have as many baskets and plants as I'm used to, but it'll work out. I'm planning to spend some time in there again on Thursday, and hopefully be able to finish unpacking.
Steve and I had a breakfast date Sunday morning and had this wonderful view while we ate.
Not sure if you can tell, but that's a Great Blue Heron standing there.
Melissa and I met for coffee on Sunday afternoon, and we took a walk in a different neighborhood from the one I walked through on Saturday. I love being a tourist in my own city, don't you?
Isn't this arched door lovely?
Some people believe that feathers are gifts, and I think they may be right.
