Since it’s another beautiful day in the neighborhood, I fought seriously with some ground cover this afternoon. Then placed some concrete squares for steps from my house to my neighbors! They had actually been visible years ago, but the ground cover took over and they shifted. So, I cleared an area and did some digging and voila – they look almost like new.
I also cut out a dead shrub. Greenery looks so much better when it’s green!
Today is the 4th of July. American Independence. I watched a sad video where people could tell what they do on the day but not what the day represents. I was going to make a comment, but then I saw two posts in the few on the screen that bashed teachers for this lack of knowledge. I don’t know about you, but I did not need to go to school to know what we celebrate on July 4!
The day was not much different for me (since it is one of my summer days!). It was a beautiful day, so I read on the back deck for a while finishing Adrenaline. Then I:
Cut out letters for banners in the library.
Worked on the student page of the library website.
Got a few station activities started.
Cleaned out my desk and the office closet. (Which means a boatload of stuff for recycling and the shredder.)
Started looking over the assignment for the 5th grade math book.
Cooked out on the same deck 😉
Watched all of season 1 of The Paradise. This is a cute show if you haven’t looked at it yet. There are only 8 shows in the first season.
I also watched a movie called Today’s Specialwhich was surprisingly funny. That was nice after I thought it might just be stupid. I’ve started too many shows or movies lately that just can’t hold my attention.
Nowhere I had to be today (for the first day this week). Really nice feeling! I worked on the web page some more. I made some little boxes using a table for buttons. The boxes are different colors and the font color is white. After linking them up, I found there was no way to keep the link white after it’s been clicked. There are ways, but none that I could get to work in school wires.
Here’s what it looks like without the links:
Tomorrow, I’ll have to see about making an image map instead of the links like I normally make them.
I also got a contacted today for a 5th grade math book. Yeah.
Today, I went to work in the library. I spent most of the time working in the office reorganizing a bit. I’d bought new storage baskets and put some of them to good use. Unpacked a couple of book orders. Fiddled around some more with this years upcoming theme.
I did take some empty library pictures to use later.
Did get the clothes washed today. Started thinking about the new roman shades for the bedroom. I worked on an alphabetizing activity for BTS. Finished cutting out school items didn’t get cut out on the way to the beach.
We are home. I’ve got to get the other entries added before I put this one up and I’m just too tired today to do that. I should wash clothes, but that’s not gonna happen today. Finished Shift. Ready for Dust, but I’ve got to finish the Abyssinian Proof first.
