Days 8 and 9 – Books on the Ice

It has been a busy couple of days.  School started again and I am glad I am on vacation to get “stuff” underway.  However, the school was not cooperating, or rather the vehicle they deliver our courses over.  It’s been really ‘buggy’.  They upgraded the system since last semester and it’s not working all that great.  Plus, this old dog has to learn some slightly new tricks with Blackboard.

But this is the line-up….World Religions, Geology, Anthropology and Biology.  A full load.  Should keep me off the street and out of trouble.

While I am working away in the pre-dawn hours (doesn’t that make you feel sorry for me) this is what everyone/everything in the apartment does….

They curl up on the nice and toasty bed and sleep.  Please note I do not consider setting the printer on the bed right behind me as ‘being lazy’.  It’s convenient.

However, while the brain is all hot with all the thinking I’m doing, outside is another story.

It’s hard to see, but the pond has a layer of ice over the top except where the fountain is.  We have been below freezing for days now.  Our normal temperature at this time of the year is in the 50’s.  We’re in the 30’s.  Snow is possible tonight.  I’m doing the anti-snow dance.  I would invite you over, but it’s not a pretty sight.
