Just because it took me a couple of weeks to write up the trip didn't mean that life didn't continue on it's merry way. Sometimes I wish it would take just a little break.
So . . . Things I Came Back To
An indigo dyeing demo. The museum's Farm Days was the day after we came home--and I had already agreed to do an indigo dyeing day. Didn't remember to take the camera--I'm amazed that I was able to get me and the blue dye out there. But farm days is fun--there are other activies to watch, cane syrup to bring home, and catch up with friend who come for it.
The classroom!!??!!! My resolutions don't seem to be working out. In September I had bragged to some friends that this year I a)wouldn't be doing the Haunted Trail, and b) would not be talked into teaching. Well--if you read my October blog, you'll see that I got rather involved in building the trail. And I came home to this--yep, that a classroom of students. One of the faculty walked out, and as I've taught this class before I was the logical person to step in. Sigh . . .
A glance at this picture shows why I gave up teaching. Yes--this was taken during class. No--many of them didn't notice that I was taking a picture because they're too busy cruising the web or texting. There's supposed to be 100 students in the class--I doubt if I've seen 30 of them.
And I went back to see Cute and Creepy (the art show at FSU's art museum) I find the serene expressions on the gazelle's faces to be particularly disturbing.
Finally, as it often does at the end of November, Thanksgiving rolled around. We had friend over (nope, no pictures) and then the next day had Thanksgiving, Part II--taking the leftovers over to the folks. I have always thought that Part II was the best part of Thanksgiving--and the reward for being the hostess of Part I (so that I get to have the leftovers).
So November is about over. Now--got to get ready for Christmas!
