Sweet Corn

I love this time of the summer. Farm markets are bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables. Here at the lake peaches are abundant. I have six sitting in my windowsill waiting to be pealed for fresh peach cobbler. YUM!

Roofing Blues

The blue band aid.
We began in April. With the numerous storms blowing through our area, our older than dirt roof began to leak; water began dripping in my living room and kitchen. The floor became an ocean of pots and pans, making various rhythmic sounds with each drop. Not to mention all the shingles lying in the yard and filling our gutters. Our friend suggested we see if our insurance would cover the roof. So I proceeded to call a contractor, who will remain nameless, to have them come out and give us an estimate for the roof.

Getting Started

I've never kept a blog before, and now I'm going to try to keep two. This should prove to be interesting. This blog is my second. The first is on my teacher website, also a first. I thought the blog would be nice for parents to read about my classroom and the learning that takes place there. I'm hoping the website helps me with communication between parents and students. On the website, I have placed my syllabus, weekly assignment sheets, assignments, and a calendar of deadlines.

So what am I going to write about here? Everything else that happens in my so called life.
