I've just got to share the good stuff I read.

I love to read. I read every chance I get. If I read something really good, I want to share it with my friends and co-workers. I make copies of magazine articles, read aloud to my students, tell others about good books I'm reading, and keep a book with me at all times.

I love teaching and learning new things. I need a place to share some of the lessons and what my students and I learn. Since my teaching situation is different from everyone else's in my school, I would like to tell all of you in the blog-o-sphere about these great lessons.

Feel free to share what you are reading, teaching and learning with us in the comments.

Mid Winter Musings

In the bleak mid-winter...
In Mississippi it isn't too bleak. Sure the days are shorter and the weather is unpredictable but there are still plenty of growing things around our house.

The baby doll bed has a healthy crop of hardy succulents and the viney things in the corner will continue to live through the cold in their protected space near the bubbling fountain.

Violas and parsley are doing well in this pot and Mr. M recently planted pansies in a sunny spot.

These red berries look festive by the front door. I think if the birds get hungry enough, the berries will get eaten.

I'm enjoying all the Christmas music on PBS-TV and radio.
What am I reading? I've started a binge on mysteries by Leslie Meier. The setting is Maine. It's not hard to visualize since we visited Maine on our way to PEI a few summers ago.

This two week break is flying by. I'm trying to savor each day and not hurry back to thoughts of work.
How about you? Do you like this time of year?
