Stacey, Tara, Betsy, Anna, Dana and Beth for
keeping us going, keeping writing about teaching along with your lives, slicers' lives, and all the myriad behind-the-scene details that enter into this month. Almost done, nearly there, what a journey!
Thank you to so many slicers who read my posts, who commented, and to those who wrote such words of inspiration that I had to re-read them, or copy and print them, or bookmark them for my teaching archives for future use. Your words will live on. Isn't that a wonderful thought?
I'm linking up to Two Writing Teachers for the 30th slice of 31!
Wow, next to the last day, and for one of the first times, I haven't yet linked my post. There aren't enough hours... I wove more than yarn yesterday into my life. My first day of spring break filled me up like a deep breath!
I had time enough to begin some new parts of my weaving, but less than I hoped. I'm going to have to take some minutes to sketch now. I want the tree, perhaps some other smaller ones. They need leaves; it's springtime! I need to begin the sky, and clouds, and the sun will appear somehow. I have a plan, but need the sketch.
I used some time to take some books I KNOW I'll never read to trade at a favorite used bookstore so I could search their shelves. It's a pleasure to see what I might discover in this packed-full place and to visit with the owner, to share some new titles she may want to add. Yes, she carries newly published books, too! This time they had a marvelous display of books for women's history month. I was thrilled to find this book of poetry by Myra Cohn Livingston.
Finally, who can refuse? I spent the late afternoon and evening with my granddaughters. Time spent, return priceless.
