Excuse my French, but merde! It is COLD out there this morning. I took Olga out at 5:30, as per usual, and there were little clumps and patches of snow on the sidewalk. Olga treated them like sno-cones, diving in and snapping them up. She loves snow. I am not such a fan, particularly in March.
This is turning out to be a nightmare week for finding substitute teachers. For some reason many of my subs are tied up doing other things. I came perilously close to not having any to fill a job today, and I still have a job to fill on Thursday and no one to take it. Ugh. I mean, why do people think they can have a life?!
One of our amaryllis plants is blooming brilliant red on our kitchen windowsill. The other three have buds in varying stages of development. A touch of the tropics in the middle of our Arctic blast!
