Thursday's Thoughts.........

I am spending my day in this middle school room today.  It holds about 30 students and I think most of the classes are 28 in number.  I would snap a shot of it filled up with kids but I guess that would not be right.

On my way into the building I took some pictures of the daffodils in bloom.  They are planted in a corner connection of two buildings on the south side. Students and staff can see them from inside the building as they walk through a glassed hallway.  They are usually in bloom and gone before mine do at my house as mine are out in the open.  I donated the bulbs for this area about 10 years ago and the student council planted them.  Since that happened others brought in day lilies and one other flower that comes up in the area.

A small concrete block wall was added which turned it into a more formal garden.  I think a peony should be planted in the middle of everything there.

Back at home my field lilies are sure growing up. We are still very cold at night but some rain did come a day ago so we are starting to green up more.

I have decided to share that it is my birthday today.  I should be proud of it as I may not remember some of these days.  It has been an interesting journey since 1950 and I hope to remember a few more good times after today.

We will go out for my special meal tonight at an Italian place and I can then get home and rest. I didn't beg to work today on my day but it works out that I could, so I will.  The fake flower looks like someone who took a good thing from nature and turned it into some less real.  The flowers sit in the window of my classroom.  We have sunshine today and it will warm to 47 degrees F.   Thank you for stopping by today.

I didn't want to tell you guys that I got mine in February. I am glad Far Guy did finally get his card. Now to wait another year before I get full social security. I didn't know they had raised it to 66 but they did for our generation.
