SIA: beating the heat

        This image, selected by Jen of Librarian for Life and Style, is the epitome of summer - you can almost feel the heat and imagine yourself spending a lazy day outside, lounging in a sun hat under a clear blue sky. The strong black lines of the illustration reminded me of this top, and the light wash jeans tie into the background color. I added just a hint of red with my Cutey red bead bracelet and garnet studs. 

     Open House was last Thursday. I had a pretty good turnout - at least half of the class showed up. My students helped their families complete the classroom scavenger hunt and I took a photo of each family. I had my wish list items out, on strips of papers titled "You're a lifesaver!" with a candy attached. Teachers at my school didn't get any funds to start the year with, so fingers crossed that we get a few donations of essentials such as dry-erase pens, sticky notes, and maybe even an electric pencil sharpener. These are things that I often end up buying out of pocket in the middle of the year.
     It was a long day, but at least we had Friday off for Statehood Day. Three-day weekends are splendid: I worked out at the gym two times, slept in, graded some papers, and did some reading. It was just enough time for some work and some relaxation.
