weekend didn't STOP! whoosh... had some awesome pizza dinner with my okc bud S Friday night and then back home to grade grade grade essays. it's an online class I"m teaching and I promise their essays back within a week, so that means I had put off checking them until Friday and then last night finished up. thank goodness there are always a few that go quick. one 'cause it didn't upload so I sent a nice email saying please post again and another that was not in rtf format so again resubmit. blah blah.
saturday morning was my errand up to Bustani plant farm. awesome, spent over $100 on plants mainly perennials. some things for my yard and a few for my sisters. crepe myrtles, sedum, coleus, etc..
came home and spaced some things out and planted a few, then off to downtown for a show with my cousin to see "The Aluminum Show." Someone told me they are from Israel and it's a pretty interesting show. They do about everything you can do with aluminum colored sheets and conduit and confetti...with fans and dancing and music and puppetry. we went out out to eat at On The Border Mexican place afterwards and I was home by 6 and out in the yard putting stuff in the ground and watering in.
some gym time today, working on getting back into my work out routine, I've been SLACKING big time ever since spring break. sometimes I am at the gym doing the same ole workouts and thinking , why bother boring. so that's how I was feeling before spring break and then I never went back, just been running and doing some abs since then. URGHhh...
I got some really exciting tree deliveries. have I already mentioned it? I mail ordered a Zelkova serrata 'Goshiki' tree and Acer trifolum . THey are 2-3 feet little bitty things but if I can keep 'em alive here in OK, they will look awesome in a couple years time. I got 5 weeks left of teaching and yes I'm counting each week. This week is EOI standardized testing, the kind where kids don't pass a grade unless they pass and yes I am at one of those low low low acheiving schools. so I got my first hour class for 3 hours tomorrow morning. I rented a few movies, Megamind or Narnia, the Dawn Treader. I'll teach for about an hour or so then put in a movie. yee haw. finishing up some essays now for tomorrow night's class. hope everyone had a great weekend. enjoy your spring!
