Spring Break #1

Started the day off by sleeping all the way to 6:30!  Doesn't sound like much but I usually pull myself out of bed at 4:45 am so 6:30 feels like the middle of the morning.  Had a leisurely breakfast, read through my emails, and had a second cup of coffee while I played some solitaire.  Then I spent 3 hours on school work - grading papers, mostly, and starting to think about the next social studies unit and ELA novel study.  Soon it was lunch time, and after lunch I settled in for some knitting and Netflix.  I watched 3 episodes of Bones, the last of season three.  Although it wasn't raining, it was very gray and chilly today outside, so I saved my exercise for my 5 pm water aerobics class.  Now I'm waiting for my husband to come in from chatting with a neighbor so we can have dinner.  And then some more knitting, and I can actually stay up tonight and watch Castle in real time!  (Or go to bed and read the newest Jacqueline Winspear novel.)  Decisions, decisions!  Lovely to have that luxury for a few days.

I am so enjoying being able to read as much as I want since I've retired, particularly without thinking about how I can teach from it. Even if I were not going to teach the novel itself, I was always looking for examples of literary techniques I could use in AP.

Glad you are having a Spring break. We have 22 more days left of school and I have so much to do!
