56 days of summer – 5

It was rainy or cloudy most of the day. We walked to a closely place for lunch again, then went to the pool. I watched a little boy sit near my feet and play with some flip flops. These were the knd where the toe piece goes all the way through the shoe. It was sticking out the bottom. He pushed it in and pulled i out. Then he realized the other shoe worked the same. After alternating between the two, he flipped them over and seemed surprised they were shoes. He very neatly put them together under the lounger and ran off.

Later, same little boy discovered the foot wash. He was too light to get it to go off. At first, he jumped up and down on it, then he stood on it waiting. Someone walked up and stepped on it. He burst into giggles.

Finished Wool last night and started on Shift.  Not quite as good, but still a decent read.



56 days of summer – 3

Today was much like yesterday. Went to beach, Broadway, ate at Joes, napped, then back to the beach. Found some Clark’s for school. Both books are getting better. Harder and harder to choose which one to pick up. There was a birthday party on the beach in the evening. Girl in a bright pink dress. But for the dress (and lack of a groom), I would have thought it was a wedding.


56 days of summer

or is it 40. I couldn’t decide to count the the weekends or not, but I wanted to use the time to get back in the habit of blogging and thought this would the be perfect time to do it. So, for habits sake, I’m going to count the weekends!

Last week was a work week. There are so many things that have to be done that just don’t happen when the students are there. I don’t ever want to sound like I don’t love most every minute that I’m with students. I do. So many things pile up though: series needing new call numbers, books to process, books to fix, weeding, shifting, book room, deleting lost materials and that doesn’t even touch lesson plans and materials. I couldn’t believe the amount of things we got through last week and still have so much left to do.

But, today is the first day of summer, and while I’ll have to address the left overs at some point, we are going to the beach. I’ve got items for the library to cut out on the drive and of course books to read. Hoping for a lovely and lazy few days.
