The last day of September 2010 - Good-bye

Life just moves so fast.
I think I have developed ADD.
I can't get things finished.
My brain is full of holes.

My hair is growing longer, not too grey. But fuzzy.
Sleep comes to me and erases the troubles of the day.
Unless I wake up.
Dreams/nightmares of the day interrupt my sleep.

My body is betraying me.
An expected event; an unexpected time.
The technology is saving me.
How long can/may I continue?

Realities are changing.
Focus deteriorates along with the machines of the past.
Life is inside out.
Where is the center?

Do you believe in Eternity?
Maybe that's why I'm so 'out of focus'
I'm just tired.

October is tomorrow.
If tomorrow ever comes...

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Just a quiet day in the valley.
Warm, sunny and breezy.
I am getting ready to grade the allmighty stack of papers (and hope edline will work for me tonight ;-)
I found the checkbook (and the stack of bills)...

and I'm thinking...
A Day In The Life Of ________________(your name could go in that blank also... )

Ordinary People.

Have a great week, everyone.

I just finished watching Fmr First Lady Laura Bush and First Lady Michelle Obama speak at the Shanksville Memorial location (on C-Span). They are inspired speakers. There are lessons here that need to be taught.
And learned...

September will always be the month of memories...

Happy Labor Day

I couldn't resist this Maxine I lifted from Sue Wolfkill. Enjoy!

And then, of course, there is a traditional graphic.

Happy Holidays.

Fall is here (in spirit)

Back to the routine. Sunday's are for lesson plans and catching up.
I wish we had "a dial-up deli". Stan is getting tired of Crock Pot meat balls and sauce. Who can eat EGGS for every breakfast? Why didn't I learn to cook?
Trisha, John, and Zoey were here yesterday. Zoey weighs 30.5 lbs and is 37 inches tall.
Tracy decided to cook in her own kitchen today, so the Strother family stayed in Mo-town today.
I've barely used the AC these two days. Open windows are in an invitation to fall. Soon, I will have to shop for the fall essentials so we can survive if we have "a bad winter" but that is a work project for another time.

Too bad we don't have a pumpkin vine in the garden this year.
I hope this weekend "turning point" finds you all healthy and energized.
I really enjoy reading about your painting projects, new school schedules, reshaping your homes, and jobs, and lives...
So, Bloggers, get busy telling the tales. We can use the energy you can pass along :)
