We're having a heatwave, a midwestern heatwave!
One nice thing about it being cold as hell these last couple of weeks: when it's finally sunny and above 25 degrees, it feels downright balmy. We are soooo going to appreciate Spring when it gets here.
Speaking of Spring, what is up with having Daylight Savings time be March 11? the hell? Doesn't it usually happen in April? Do we really need that extra hour of daylight? Someone said it's for the economy. If it is, I still don't get it.
In a couple of months, my book group will be making selections for the coming year. (We choose our books a year in advance- each person has a "pick") Any recommendations? We have a few guidelines- nothing of the Danielle Steele ilk, nothing so long as not to be finished in a 4-5 week period of time, as we meet monthly. It must be in print, preferably in paperback. We have found that some of the books we enjoyed the most prompted the least discussion, while those we liked less, or had trouble reading sparked the best discussions.
I've got a mild case of Sunday-itis tonight. I don't want to go to school tomorrow. Wahh. The good part about Wed. being our ITED (Iowa Tests of Educational Development) day is that the kids are done at noon, so we get to go out to lunch after we have safely delivered the test booklets to their proper vault. It's almost like a day off, not having to prepare lesson plans for that day. Woo hoo!
