Silverliningness Sunday

First of all, Happy Spring everyone! Even though we got hit with a snowstorm and temperatures in the teens, I DON'T CARE. The guy on the radio said that spring officially began yesterday at 11:30-something, and I'm going with it!

"generic bird of spring"

With the arrival of spring coincides spring break for the kids. As I previously mentioned, we have no biggie plans, but it's nice to have a break from the usual day-to-day.

On the work front, I finished off one class and started another this week. The class that just started is one of high school kids. While I've private tutored many a high school kid, this is actually my first classroom-full. All my other classes have been grad students, and these high schoolers are a real fun bunch - even when in a pack. Who knew?!

Meego's parent/teacher conference was positive, and that's typical for him. Conferences for Chaco and Wolfgang are optional, and we felt no need to confer this quarter for either of them. "Uneventful" can be a good thing.

We all know that I'm not a fan of driving, and this week, I'm thankful I didn't get stuck in any traffic jams. The week prior, I got stuck in two such jams, so I'm thankful for a traffic jamless week.

It's sunny and 40 degrees right now. I'm going out to play.


  1. have fun out side, isnt' it muddy?

  2. Your artwork is really good. I especially like the texture and simplicity of this one.
    (The title maybe could use some inspriration, though....haha)

  3. Happy Spring! I'm thankful that the weather is actually spring-like in these parts. I'm seeing a lot of real-live generic birds of spring too!

  4. Enjoy the spring break time off with the family. 40 degrees is almost shorts weather.

  5. Sparrow!

    Also, I too love the good kind of uneventful (school reports, tidying out the fridge, doctor appointments, etc, etc).
