About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

First Spring Sunset

~click on collage to enlarge~

This chilly sunset for the first day of Spring promises--or threatens, depending on your point of view--more cold snowy weather to come.  Even significant snow by Sunday evening.  Suits me fine, but I know some of you are winter weary.  Hint:  look closely at the last photo and you can plainly see that tree leaves are ready to come out.

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

Sunsets are wonderful - no matter the season or weather. Enjoy your snow.

We haven't had any Spring-like sunsets since Spring arrived. I think the snow may miss us this weekend, but it's still cold.

Beautiful sky! I have mixed feelings...I like the cooler temperatures, but I'm getting tired of the bad weather. I wonder how much snow we'll actually get tomorrow?
