Monday with a Touch of Winter.......
We have dropped down to below freezing again after a few warm days. It is 25 F. degrees which now seems warm after all the temps in the teens. I noticed I have just a couple of things that need to be brought in to the basement but all outside work is done for me.
The neighbor's white shadow is checking things out on the patio. Our smallest dog sometimes has to get up at 2 in the morning. When he goes out he finds the scent of cats or rabbits that he has to check out before coming back inside. Sometimes he is making circles all over the patio and also checking the patio chairs for a scent.
I will finish off with another silly shot of my mom's salt and pepper shakers. I had to throw away a lot of the collection but I kept back some of them that were good memories.
I am in the At Risk room with students who need encouragement to get their homework done. The have had years of experience of avoiding doing school work and their abilities to shade the truth is a great skill. Keeping them behaving well is a goal and also a time for me also to encouraged them. Some have bad habits because they live with them at home. A positive help and gentle affirmation does go a long way with the students.
I don't think I have work tomorrow so it will be good to be home in the daytime again. It is very cold again and the body seems to have to readjust to that. i hope everyone is well and thanks for stopping by today.
