1. The first day of spring is here...do you enjoy working in the yard? Weeding, raking, mowing, planting-your favorite springtime garden chore? How aboutyour least favorite?

Working in the yard is therapeutic to me-especially this time of the year. I take out my frustrations on the weeds.



Least favorite yard work would have to be raking.

2. What puts a spring in your step? Sunshine

We have had such a dreary, rainy winter.




Having sunshine puts a smile on my face and a spring in my step.
I am experiencing a beautiful, warm spring weather. Temperatures have been in the high 70's to low 80's with plenty of sunshine!!!! I love seeing the trees and flowers blooming and hearing birds singing and children playing!
3. Describe a time when you had to spring into action? Every morning I jump out of bed -or fall out of bed-and spring into action. 4. We're having carrots for dinner...would you prefer yours raw or cooked? Carrots any way you want to fix them-I like them r…

Whew.....after much rain and wind I am amazed they are still standing.  Our weather, like many other places I am sure of, has sure been crazy.  These are outside of my window at school. 
Beautiful-aren't they? 

Both daughters have been home for spring break-not together, I might add.  But the weather was nice for both!!  #1 daughter wasn't ready to return to pharmacy school-wanted just a few more days.  #2 daughter was actually bored-hum.....

School is really keeping me busy and I have missed blogging. This time of year is so nerve wrecking-way too much paper work!  I can't believe we get a spring break and out in May!!!  This has never happened in all my years of teaching.

Many teachers are making plans-beach trips, Florida get-a-ways and even trips to Italy!  Me?  I plan on doing nothing.  I just want to get up on no schedule, eat on no schedule and do absolutely Nothing!
Hub and both daughters say--Mom we know you will do something, you just don't sit.  Who knows?…

1. St. Patrick's Day will be celebrated this coming Saturday...what's a favorite article of clothing you own that contains a touch o' the green?
I had to go and look in closet.  Only one green piece of clothing-which was a skirt-how I got this is beyond me.

2. What's a favorite 'green space' in the town, state, or province where you live? Don't have a 'green space' in our little town.  A few miles down the road, there is a beautiful 'green space'-lovely place to just sit and relax on a blanket.
3. Do you wish you were taller, shorter, or think you're just about right in the height department? Just a little taller.
4. What's the surest way for someone to pick a fight with you? When I hear someone demeanor a child-calling that child stupid or lately I heard someone say to a child -not even a school aged child-I will bust your mouth if you don't stop.  What has really gotten into our younger parenting generation-no patience and it all…

1. Did March come in like a lion or was it something less ferocious in your neck of the woods?
Can I answer both?  I just did.  March 1 & 2 beautiful with sunny skies and temperatures in  high 60;s to low 70's.  March 3rd-storm with tornado warnings issued and in and out of basement we traveled.  March 4th-snow storm warning-a couple inches of snow.  I do not like this up and down roller coaster weather we are experiencing.
2. Speaking of lions, which one's your film favorite...The Cowardly Lion (Wizard of Oz), Mufasa (The Lion King), Elsa (Born Free), or Alex (Madagascar)? You may notice I left Aslan off the list. Including him would have made this question way too easy for many of you. Mufasa
3. What's your favorite spot from which to view the sunrise or sunset? The beach!!
4. To what extent is knowledge power and to what extent is truth power? What's the difference? They both can be very powerful.  The difference--truth-is being very honest and it can also be hur…
