    Today was the LAST DAY with Kraft Dinner student!!!!
    Well, last day at KD's house. I still have to do some marking.
    I dislike marking.

    Most of today was spent on my Silent Movie drawings.
    My concert is next Monday night.
    Nothing like leaving things till the last minute...

    I got the idea to draw these in January. My mind was FULL of ideas. And then I started my ESL AQ and that ate up all my time.
    Now EVERY SINGLE moment is spent with my Bamboo pen in hand...

    I apologize for not reading and posting on everyone's journals. I try to read a few each night, but the saga of Larry Laroo and Sweet Nelly Nicely is sucking up all my free time...


    No wine and no chocolate today!

    Fresh asparagus again tonight!!

      Everybody dislikes marking.

      Being busy every minute beats being bored. And hurray for asparagus!

        • We try to have fresh asparagus every day while it's growing.
          And we NEVER pay for it!

          Of course, we never have it the rest of the year...

          • At our old house we tried growing asparagus. Never succeeded, because our husky, it turns out, LOVED asparagus! She would nibble down the stalks as quickly as they appeared, and the crowns(is that the right terminology?) were never able to get established. Now that we have different dogs, maybe we should try again.
            Fresh asparagus, how lovely that would be!

            • Tuesday

              I had a supply teaching job. It was easy.

              We had fresh asparagus again
              (Should I call it "free range" asparagus???)

              I helped Daughter pack, she left this morning for a school band trip to Washington DC. 14 hour bus ride.
              Some highlights of their trip:
              a music clinic at the Benjamin T Rome School of Music
              Smithsonian Complex of Museums
              guided tour on bus - The Capitol building, Pentagon, White House, Lincoln, Washington, and Vietnam Memorials, etc..
              Georgetown Cupcakes (DC Cupcakes)
              Blues Alley Jazz and Supper Club - with Arturo Sandoval
              Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts - concert with The National Symphony Orchestra & "Big Bad Voodoo Daddy"
              Madame Tussaud's Washington DC
              Marine Barracks Washington Evening Parade
              Holocaust Memorial Museum

              She'll be home late Sunday night.


              *no wine or chocolate on Tuesday!

              • It's Lily's 5th birthday today <3

                We might go spend some time at the beach this afternoon


                I ran this morning. 2.5k in 23 min.
                Not any faster than usual, but somehow it was...different... ? easier ?... ? lighter ? ...

                • Wednesday

                  Lets see..I ran, and it was "easier"

                  I worked on my Silent Movie drawings.
                  I surfed the net.
                  It rained, so we didn't go to the beach

                  I sang Happy Birthday to The Fabulously Adorable Miss Lily Buttercup
                  Here's a photo, just 'cause it's her birthday!


                  I enjoyed more fresh asparagus

                  No wine and no dark chocolate again today!
                  *note: I STILL have two dark chocolate bars in my bag, a lovely 70% Lindt and the yucky Aero dark.

                      • Only eating the asparagus in the spring is a wonderful way of doing things. Then it stays special.

                        Lily is very cute, but I want to see a picture of Winencandy...
