Where Are You, Springtime?

Today was my first day back to school in nearly two weeks. We had a two hour delay this morning, so I got a little extra prep time. I unfortunately had to walk into class with very little planned. I was so sick the week before the snow that I didn't remember anything I taught and I had no notes for myself. The kids were very good about it though, and we're back on track. A little behind, but progressing in a forward manner.

I have this reoccurring daydream. In this daydream, the snow melts and flowers immediately are in bloom. Yes, I know, fat chance of that. But at this point in this snow "wonderland," I don't know if I'll ever see greenery again. It feels like this snow will never, ever melt. I just keep thinking to myself something between "just keep swimming" and conjuring up the gorgeous daffodils I got for Valentine's day. Soon enough, they'll be in my yard and I'll be happy again.

For your daydreaming pleasure:



  1. My bulbs have started to show a bit of green. I can't wait until they bloom, although I know it will still be quite awhile.

  2. I'm not sure if my bulbs are showing yet, they're still under three feet of snow :o) I wonder if the snow will affect their ability to grow this year.
