It rained last night and is still gray and overcast this morning. Everything is damp or wet outside and it looks like a great morning to sleep late, which I, obviously, am not doing. I was going to get up and do the yard this morning but that's not going to happen.
I have four more weeks of summer vacation before it's back to work; it goes by way too fast! I had this huge list of things to accomplish over the summer and I haven't done everything yet. I need to get busy! This August will begin my 15th year in the classroom; and, for the fourth time in nine years at my current school, I'll be moving to a new classroom. That means I'll have to spend a couple of days up at the school in the weeks ahead moving stuff and getting my new room ready.
But that's for later. Today is a lazy day and I'm going to savor the last few days of summer before it's all over. Not thinking about work today. On to the links.
