Busy, Busy, Busy

It's been a crazy week or two. Lots of school work and prepping, especially for science. I've been introducing atomic structure to my students, not exactly an easy topic, but I've first had to understand it myself. I really hate teaching a subject I'm not qualified to teach!! So far, so good, and I've learned a lot myself as I've tried sharing it with the kids. I also had meetings every day after school last week, and so far, I've had 2 this week. I'm trying to get a little ahead since we have a super special weekend planned -- more on that AFTER the weekend.

Spring is teasing us a bit -- it hit the low 50°s today. My front yard is still full of snow -- it's that coarse, icy stuff that looks so ugly. We have several huge plow piles lining the driveway. They will be there forever. Meanwhile next to the house, my daffodils and tulips are poking the tips of their stems up about an inch, and pussy willows are just about gone.

My knitting has come to almost a full stop. I'm really trying to heal my shoulder and rest my "trigger" finger. Very annoying though not to knit! So instead I've been reading. Here's the latest book I've finished. This is a great series!

Pardonable Lies: A Maisie Dobbs Novel (Maisie Dobbs Mysteries (Paperback)) Pardonable Lies: A Maisie Dobbs Novel by Jacqueline Winspear

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
When is it better to lie than to tell the truth? There are many lies in this Maisie Dobbs' installment. Maisie must make some difficult decisions about what to tell a client, and she discovers that even those she trusts are capable of telling lies. Maisie travels to France to investigate the deaths of two WWI aviators. In the process she faces up to some lies she's told herself, and undergoes some serious soul-searching. Another engrossing read!
