After a few weeks of hemming and hawing about whether or not to stay here, I decided to move. Not to Tumblr, but rather to Weebly.  I use Weebly to host my classroom website, and I needed a fresh format and look.

This site will stay up for the foreseeable future, although it will be inactive.

If you've been following me here, I hope you'll continue to follow me there.

Vacation in Instagram

Well, I kinda sorta blew it.  I had intended to take Instagram photos all week and present a little montage of my vacation photos here.  I took lots of photos in the car on the way to North Carolina.  I took some photos while I was there.  I took almost none on the way home.

So rather than a full montage, I thought I would just post a few of my favorites.  These are by no means representative of my vacation.

Freakishly ominous clouds over Ohio farmland.

There ain't no barbecue like Carolina style.

Last week, I was a grading machine.  This week, I am in North Carolina on vacation.  Not wasting time getting into this summer at all! 

See you in a week, when I'll have vacation pictures via Instagram!

This spot once contained a small evergreen tree that was removed when my porch was redone.  It has sat empty until today.

Mom gave me a Weigela shrub for my birthday, and now this space is starting to look like it should!

Monkey.  This must be the most ubiquitous sock pattern ever.

I cast on for my second pair yesterday.  Meet pair number 16,915:

Since then, six more people have cast on.  We are now at number 16,921.  Cookie A. is the Google of the handknit sock world.

Come join us for some monkey business, if you are so inclined.
