Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. As August draws to a close, share what's been your favorite weekend of the entire summer?

Would have to be June 20-22.  Hub and I celebrated our 33rd Wedding Anniversary on the 20th, and we took a mini-get-a-way!  Our love still grows everyday for each other.

2. Labor Day is marked in the US of A on Monday, September 1st.  What paying job have you held that you've loved the most? Liked the least?

I love teaching, and I love seeing the progress the kids make even if they do not pass the rigorous state testing-progress is progress and one day of testing should not measure it.

Least favorite job, would be a summer job my father got me while in college.  It was a factory job, very hot, no breaks, and lifting sheet rock boards-but the pay was great.  Just because my daddy worked there, didn't mean I had any breaks-I was treated like everyone else.

3. Does the new school year start before or after Labor Day where you live? When do you think it should begin? There is much discussion now about older students having later start times to their school day...your thoughts?

Our school year begins before Labor Day-August 22 was the first day for students, and teachers begin a week prior to them.  This year was the first in a long time we waited this long-usually begin around August 6th.  In my area, I believe all are ready to return in August.

4. What's something you've worked at recently that could be deemed a 'labor of love'?

My mind is drawing a blank....must be in school mode.

5.Which of the following work idioms can you most relate to right now...'A woman's work is never done.', 'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.' 'Many hands make light work.'

Most definitely 'A woman's work is never done'

6. Crab or lobster or thanks, but no thanks? Favorite way to have your choice prepared?Love, 

Love, love, love to have me some steam Maryland Crabs!!

7. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying, 'Three rules of work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.' Which of the three do you consider to be the most important? Share one of your own 'rules of work'.

From discord find harmony-our world could use more of.   It takes a lot to get along with others, and it is not easy. It is something we all should want and strive for.
Not necessarily a 'rules of work'quote but one I tell my students: "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

8.  Insert your own random thought here.


  1. I think most of us chose #5, its so true! ;)

  2. So happy for your and your husband......Happy Anniversary!
    I enjoyed reading your answers.

  3. What a sweet wedding photo! Hope you're off to a good start this new school year!
