Saturday morning...slow and quiet.


Good morning...and happy three day weekend! I actually have all of next week off...as do my boys. Our district has a random week off for some reason...last year it was in October. I'm not complaining...

I subbed all last week and I will sub the week that we return. I have applied for the actual job that I am subbing for...so hopefully I'll hear more about that when we get back to school.

I have been getting up at 5:30 every morning (or earlier if Pablo is noisy) so last night I could barely keep my eyes open past 10. Matter of fact, I don't think I did! Chris and I watched a movie I picked up from the library, John Adams. It was a 3-disc HBO special. We watched 2 discs last night and the 3rd this morning. I really liked it...I really enjoy period films. And as always...largely due to the set design, sometimes more than the actual film. If I had it to do over again, I'd love to be a set designer.

So I've been up since 6 or so...watching a movie, slowly sipping coffee, catching up on blogs. Chris has an appointment with a client in a bit...Seth has already been to baseball practice and is now working on laundry...Ian is slowly stirring...and later tonight we will go to dinner with my family for my brother's birthday!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL!

My "little brother" is turning 40 today...wow. I think about things we did 20 years ago and it seems like it was just last week. Don't get my brother and I laughing...once it starts, it's all over. All it takes is one look and we're done for the next 15 minutes. Laughter....it's good for the soul, isn't it? And even better when it's with your brother... I love you Mike...Happy Birthday!

As for the rest of the day? Well...laundry as always. And homework...as always. I need to go to the feed store for chicken feed. And to the store for a few items. (Wishing I'd done it yesterday when I meant to...dangit.) But for the most part...I'm taking it slow. Sounds good...

...slow is good. Loving the collage Michelle it has a nice quiet feel. Our family watched the whole series of Hortatio Hornblower...pretty darn good.

Have a fabby weekend!

Wow! A new teaching job? That's how my mom got her first teaching job after we moved. Good way to get in the door! Hope it works out if you like the position!

I love your photography! We've seen the first disc of that John Adams set-rented it from video store that's now going out of business. Maybe I should go see how inexpensive it'd be to buy it?!

I hope you're enjoying more time off!
