Random Nonsense on Tuesday

I'm linking up with Stacy Uncorked for some randomness.  Wanna join us?

 It seemed like everyone had the MLK holiday except the teachers in my school district.  The surrounding districts gave both teachers and students a holiday, but my district had "professional development" for teachers.  Not fair!

On a positive note, the workshop was good, not something you typically hear a teacher say. The language arts teachers in my grade level (about 35 of us) had the good fortune of working with Jeff Anderson for the second time.    We did bits and pieces of his book Ten Things Every Writer Needs to Know.   I really like his approach to teaching!

And speaking of teaching, Our lesson plans are usually due on Monday at 8AM, but since we didn't have students today, I thought we'd get an extra day.  Not so.  Oh well.  I'm a day late and a dollar short as usual.  I prefer to have my ducks in a row where my job is concerned.

On a completely different note, this weekend, my husband and I went to Galveston just to walk around and do something slightly better than sitting on the couch.  I took some random pictures.
Galveston's First Presbyterian Church built in 1876.

The US Customs House built in 1861
Blue sky and palm trees.  It was a gorgeous day!

Have a great week!

Love palm trees and blue skies! wish I could get those kind of shots. I got Evergreens and snow though. :)
Looks like a lovely town.

I've never visited, but have looked into moving there simply because it's an affordable beach town. Still probably out of my reach, but you never know!

You're making me want to come check out Galveston! What cool shots you got!!

That's crazy your school district didn't have MLK off - even the hubby, who teaches college, had that day off (first time ever, though - the college he taught at in PA was a year-round school, and they have very minimal time off for the staff). :) At least you enjoyed the workshop!

It's also nice to know someone else besides me ends up being a day late and a dollar short... nice not being alone in that. ;)
