First, let me thank ALL of you who left a supportive comment regarding my volleyball resignation last Friday. I have been quite decided already for a couple of months, but going through the official submission was more difficult that what I had expected. So, forward I move....
Second.....I canNOT believe I didn't drop you all a note YESTERDAY!!! For those of you in the mathematical world-----yesterday (March 14....ahem....3/14.....) was an international mathematical holiday! It was PI Day!!!! As usual, I celebrated in style with my classes; doing an activity where the students discover how close they can actual calculate PI by dividing the circumference by the diameter of various circular objects.
My quilting time is on pause; a small (needed?) break. Allow me to give you an update on my Harry Potter reading. With reading levels equivalent to 5.3, 5.9 and 5.9 for the first three books, the reading has been quite quick and relaxing. This past weekend, be it the gloom-n-doom from my momentous decision on Friday, I didn't have much ambition to do anything that involved any amount of energy. Friday night, I finished book #2. And, this is the first weekend in MONTHS where I spend LESS than 30 minutes quilting. 20 minutes on Sunday were devoted....but then.....I had had enough. No interest. SO.....out came book #3; I had started it Saturday and finished it Sunday afternoon. I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with them, but it DO enjoy just sitting back, being lazy, because they DO keep me quite entertained and wondering "how is Harry going to be in danger this time?"
Also, I have been treating myself (more-so, my family) to the movies as I finish up the books. Candace is actually watching #3 again as I'm typing right now. I will admit, though......#3 is quite dark and quite scary for someone Candace's age. Today in school, a few of the students said that they get "darker" as Harry ages......hmmm.
Anyway---book 4. My first thought----"okay, it's quite a bit thicker!" ;0)
