The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)
Fisherman's Luck (1899)

Today...A kindergartener declared herself 20 feet tall after measuring herself in what she considers feet. the first day of spring and I had to drive through a blizzard to get to school. youngest son discovered that he can no longer reach around me to give me a hug. At least he blamed it on the baby.

Today...I planned my 4th quarter lesson plans. Time flies.

Today...I made it through the day without eating fries (so far).

Today...I did not make it through the day without eating Oreos.

Today's quote...Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of. Benjamin Franklin (1706-90)

Today...I am blessed.

If you passed up the fries, you TOTALLY deserved the Oreos. ;)

I love the quote. I love what I do and spend as much time at it as I can, though I need to work and earn a living. That seems like squandering time in itself, as my life is winding down and I don't want to waste any of it. The stick business keeps me sane and gives me a purpose. I didn't realize you were with child, I guess I miss out on a lot of things when I don't pay attention. As Katrina said, if you gave up the fries, you definitely deserve the cookies. I hope you have been well and life is good. The Stickman
