It's Been Some Time But All Is Well

I am in Corolla, NC, this weekend, with some knitting friends, and this is the view from our window this morning.  
Although it has been quite awhile since my last post, all is well with me. It's just more of a challenge posting without wifi at home than I expected it to be, but there isn't really much I can do about it at the moment.  I'm three weeks into the second semester and it's been great so far.  My classes are small and each one has a completely different feel to it, which keeps my day very interesting.  I teach English 10, Honors 10, and English 11, and while there are lots of similarities in the content, there is also a lot of room for variety, but this semester, each class has a very different and distinct personality, which I'm truly enjoying.  

Although it's only February, it looks like spring has arrived.  The daffodils and crocus are blooming in my front yard, although by this time next weekend, there may be snow on these flowers. 

I bought new curtains for my bedroom last weekend as a birthday gift to myself, and believe it or not, I bought them in the children's department!  I fell in love with pink pom poms on these, and thought they were perfect.  Sooner or later, my whole house may end up pink.  Who knew?
This is pretty much my nightly view:  Gracie, sitting by the tub while I take my bath, giving me her long suffering look until I get out.
Because this is where she wants us both to be:  on the couch, in the sunroom.
Or in bed.  Look at that sweet smile.


  1. Now *I'm* in love with those curtains! Great purchase.

  2. Glad you are doing well Rose. Take good care of yourself.

  3. Glad to hear all is well Rose...and that you got away for a weekend! Oh those curtains are wonderful and fun - love them. Sweet Gracie and Spring on the way - all is good. So glad your classes are going well this semester too. You sound very happy.

  4. So glad you are OK. I was getting worried!
    You have small classes for English 10? How can that be? Ours are like 30 kids -- and crazy. All my biology sections are 28 to 30, which is way too big.
    Daffodils in February are crazy, too, but still lovely.
    And I would love to live in a pink house. Not sure Keith would go for it, though ...
