Plans for the Week
This is one of those days when I'm just going to have to start typing and hope that a blog post emerges. Sometimes I know what I'm going to write about and sometimes, like this morning, I haven't the foggiest idea.
Today is our last workday before February break. We're off all next week. It's sometimes known as "Ski Week," because many students and their families hit the slopes in France or Switzerland -- which is something I will definitely not be doing. I've never snow skied and I don't intend to start now.
Instead, Dave and I will be staying in England, and most likely not venturing far from home. I have vague plans to do some things around the house, and I'd like to get out and experiment more with the metal detector that Dave gave me a couple of years ago. I haven't used it much and I'd like to see what it can do. So far, all I've managed to find is one bottle cap.
I might take a day trip or two. I'd also like to get some reading done. See how I've declared in my blog sidebar (at right) that I'm reading "The Library Book" by Susan Orlean? That's a blatant falsehood. I haven't even started it yet. I've been meaning to start it for weeks now and yet I had to catch up on all my New Yorkers and keep going on the Newbery books and yadda yadda.
And we have to prune the roses. And fix the garden fence.
There is no shortage of tasks to occupy our time!
