Hi Everyone! Yesterday I bought some of those "toning" shoes for walking. Bill said, "You are going to fall." Ha ha ha! I hope he's wrong! Anyway, I grabbed my iPod, my phone, and my camera and ventured out into the neighborhood. Guess who I met? Ginger. Her frustrated owner said, "Oh, she's looking for a new home." She didn't mean it but Ginger is evidently "high maintenance" and keeps her busy human friend even more busy! There isn't much to take pictures of this winter. The weather is supposed to turn VERY cold and just now the icebergs in the lawn are almost gone. Oh well. I remain ever hopeful for SNOW DAYS.
This morning I read from The Divine Hours by Phyllis Tickle. Good stuff. I popped over to Sharon Lovejoy's blog and discovered two authors I hadn't heard of. Delight! I ordered a few of their works FREE for my Kindle. Well, a few books cost a dollar or two. Sharon's post about a lighthouse was a sweet little "good morning" and now I miss the sea. Oh well. Off to school. Guess what our unit question is? What does LOVE have to do with LIFE? We are going to read Romeo and Juliet (honors) and West Side Story (regular) and I can't wait to guide them in our exploration of family love, community love, altruistic love, romantic love, FRIENDSHIP. Which reminds me . . . thank you for YOUR friendship. Bye bye January! HELLO LOVE month!
