Spring Break: Day 1

25 Mar

Although today is the first day of Spring Break, in my mind it began at 4 p.m. yesterday. It won’t really feel like Spring Break until Monday when I won’t have to do to school. An informal poll in my classes let me know that most students were enjoying a Staycation. That was a new word for most of them and they really liked it.

My plans for today are simple.

  • drink coffee and write this post.
  •  read/knit/drink tea
  • nap – maybe before lunch, maybe after
  • take a couple of walks with Lucy

I’ve only ever gone away for Spring Break once. Mostly, I like to stay home and regenerate, so I can finish the school year strong.

    Rejuvenating is always a good plan. Enjoy all the tea, walks, naps, and knitting today will bring.

    Sounds good to me!
    I have one suggestion- you have been “slicing” a long time. Why not take a look over all your writing, look for themes, and take another look at those pieces together to see what emerges.

      That’s a great idea, Fran! Thanks.

    I hope you enjoy your stayvacation- sounds like my kind of vacation. I prefer to stay at home mostly.

    Sounds nice! I am very much looking forward to a little relaxation and to recharge my batteries during my school break. (Not till April) I hope you have a great week off.

    I’ll get home on Monday and have the rest of the week to relax. Last year I went to NOLA to chaperone a trip–ugh! It’s so nice to relax at home. Enjoy!!

    My favorite vacation is the one I spend on my back porch reading. And napping…that’s the best part of it! Enjoy!
