Silver Liningness Sunday

I will start by admitting that we have NO Christmas decorations up.  We don't even have a tree yet, but that's pretty par for the course anyway. That should all change today, though.  At least that's the plan.

Other than that, this was a good and productive week.  I already mentioned that the college semester came to a close.  All of my grades have been posted, and I'm happy with my GPA at this point.  My two teaching classes were, more or less, weeder classes for people to see if they really? want to be school teachers - thrown right to the elementary and middle school wolves, but it was all pretty familiar to me.  We did lose a few along the way, and now I'm glad to be done with those and get on with the remainder of the program.

As for my calculus class, that was just so fun and reminded me of what a nerd I am.

The weather's been up and down, but the frost did finally burn off yesterday.  Wolfgang has recently taken up longboarding, and I've recently taken up playing with the camera (I can't quite call it "photography"), so I practiced some action shots yesterday.

Meego had another band concert this week.  They sounded really good - and so much more enjoyable than those 3rd grade recorder programs!

I'm also glad to say that the eye dermatitis has ebbed and I feel almost human... at the moment.  Puffiness has deflated and wrinkles are of a more appropriate depth.  And the winter solstice was yesterday, I can feel the days getting longer already!

So onward!  There's a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree with our name on it!

Here's hoping you have fun decorating and putting up the tree today.

Glad to hear your happy with your GPA - that's awesome.

Love the photo of Wolfgang longboarding!

Yay for Meego's band concert!

And an even bigger YAY for the eye dermatitis going away!

Nothing wrong with Charlie Brown Christmas tree. I know you and your family will enjoy your time together no matter what the decorations are like. Merry Christmas.

I wish I knew you way back when. I love your idea of picking out a live tree and planting it once Christmas is over. Can't wait to see this year's!
I love your action shot! Reminds me of your art work, 'cept it's real!
These days, Christmas concerts are actually fun to go to. They're so much more talented now!
Happy to hear your eyes are doing better. And congrats on a great GPA. I wouldn't have expected anything less from someone who thinks Calculus is fun. :/

Math as fun? You and Mr. RK must be related. I can merely sigh with envy.

I like math too. It just feels like a shameful little secret. So glad I'm not the only one! I also didn't decorate for Christmas and enjoy taking photos. I'm beginning to think that you're me, just in a different place with a different dog. Happy holidays!

Well, thanks, and nice to see you back after your battle with the evil cookies!

Abby said...

OH, we have a whole Charlie Brown grove!

I don't like "fake" Christmas trees, yet I couldn't bring myself to continue to murder each year. The little-tree-in-a-pot tradition was one of our better decisions.

Abby said...

It's probably an emotional coping strategy. Numbers are just so honest *sniff*.

Abby said...

I've had that same thought myself - yet another parallel!

Congratulations! Ours is aclimating in the garage!
