For the record, teachers, for the most part, find it a pain in the neck to be out sick.
Since "Do lesson #24 on page 116" went the way of the TV antenna, leaving a meaningful assignment that a sub can handle can be quite challenging--especially if one is thinking about it at 3:30 am after a lengthy coughing spell.
Said cough convinced me to stay put another day,
that and all the people who saw me yesterday who murmured,
"Poor dear, you aregoing home to bed, aren't you?"
in that voice which means,
"Go away and don't breath on me until you are germless."
So here I lie, doing what everyone does in these situations--
surfing the Web!
So with no further ado, here are some of my finds:
I haven't just looked at food. A Geek in Glasses has a simple tutorial for making your own baker's twine. Uber-cool Christmas packages, anyone?
Finally, a post on a more serious note from my friend Helen.
God's goodness is a marvel, really, in uncountable ways, but it always astounds me when He gives me somethingjust because
it would make me smile, like a child tickled by a peppermint fished out of Grandpa's pocket.
If you've read here a while, you know I love all things Anglo, so it delights me to no end that God would bring me a British blogging buddy--one with a tender heart toward Him and and sweet, true words.I hope you appreciate her heart as well.
This extremely belated post is brought to you by our Annual Autumn Upper-Respiratory Infection.
Such an event should make me hate fall, but it doesn't.
I love fall; I'm not sure it likes me.
Being a patient tests my patience.
The marathon waiting room experience kicks it off when there's nothing to read but a battered copy of Family Circle from 2008, and the trip to the pharmacy where one must stand around and be miserable and eye the cough drop selection finishes the job.
Now I'm home, thankfully, on my couch with Zach Neese's book, How to Worship a King,and a large coffee.
Oh, and an Agatha Christie.
Since we can visit today without a)me having to talk or b) me spreading any germs, what's up at your place today?
