I thought I was seeing ghosts. I took a shot out the door through the storm door. It seemed to have a special look to it that I liked. Up in the corner was a mystery for me that I could see things in the sky. I had to study it long and hard and I now realize that the glass storm window that I was taking the photo through was reflecting the stuff piled on the kitchen counter right inside the door. The white bucket like container is what I use to take birdseed out to the feeders. The rest is the general clutter you get around a sink before you wash the dishes. Mugs and bowls and whatever else that was sitting there. No ghosts this time but a special effect that I probably couldn't recreate, even if I tried.
I haven't shared a report on the amaryllis for a while but here it is. It doesn't act like it is going to be a normal looking bloom but I will just wait and see.
I am in the middle school wing today teaching English. We have spent a lot of time on punctuation and parts of speech identification. I can probably identify most parts of a sentence now after being around it for the past semester. They are all eighth graders and it has been a pretty good day. I watched with the class a couple of speeches that they now tape to share for a grade. One of the speeches was on how to wash your guinea pig. The other that stuck out was a boy showing how to open a coconut. That was a dangerous looking speech and loud as he used a hammer to open the coconut.
It is Thursday and I am glad that Friday is coming. I will be in the special education room in the high school tomorrow. We are warming up a little but it still is not melting any snow. Thank you for stopping by today.
