Arrgh! Do ye be wantin' my inchie?

There is this really great guy who works at our school.  Whenever the local Krispy Kreme donut place has a "pirate" day, he dresses up and has his whole family dress up to go get a free dozen donuts.  Last time with all his grand-kids he got ELEVEN dozen donuts!!  So what do you do with that many donuts?  He took them to the nursing home and shared most of them.  As I said he is a great guy.

This little guy won't get me any donuts, but that's okay.  Our inchie word was pirates.  Maybe he will tell me where is treasure is buried . . . 

I am having an argument with this site.  It will not let me put the cursor under my inchie to write.  Why???  Oh well, I shall sign off up here.  Even if I don't want it that way.  Hope you are having a great day.  I am finally finished with most of my school work and so now on to more enjoyable pursuits.  See you!
Ahoy, matie!

Inchie - horizon

I love teaching vanishing points and horizon to my art club.  They are so amazed at what they produce.  So for my inchie I just chose a teeny version of what I do for my first simple lesson.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  The weather here is finally feeling like fall!  I love this time of year!

Lovin' this Monday!!

While our fall break from school this year was shortened considerably - from one week to 4 days including weekend - I am so grateful for any time off.  I have enjoyed these last few days of doing . . . well, doing nothing really.  Today is my last "goof off" day.  Tomorrow I will do my school work.  That takes an entire day.  One week I will actually get caught up.  Okay.  Probably not.

The inchie word for this week was direction.  I drew a compass rose.  This is our school symbol - our theme is trailblazers.
Thank you for dropping by and saying hello!  Hope your week has been awesome!

Terri Dactyl

     Our inchie of the week was dinosaur.  When I saw this cute little pterodactyl I could not resist.  So here is Terri - in all her glory!

     I hope you are having a wonderful week.  I also hope none of you are being affected by Hurricane Matthew.  Safe keeping to you all!

Finally . . . FALL!!

    The weather outside is a crisp cool temperature.  The leaves - oh well - that is another story.  Because of our severe drought, our leaves are falling, but only because they are dying.  No pretty colors.  I wonder if there will be any.  Likely not.  Our rainfall is 14 inches below our normal.  But back to the temps - they are so pleasant!  I love this time of year.  Bring on the hot chocolate and pumpkin spiced everything!
     Here is my inchie for the week - briefcase. 
     I have one more week til fall break.  Yahoo!  Our fall break this year is only two days (plus weekend).  Not like our normal week, but hey, time off is time off.  I am not complaining. 
     I have it in my head to have a garden come spring.  So I am browsing pinterest to find out everything I can.  I have no luck with growing things.  I can kill a silk plant!  Seriously.  So we shall see if can actually grow anything or just read about it.   I would be a disappointment to my wonderful grandfather.  He could touch a plant and it would grow.  He grew fields of vegetables just to give away to the neighborhood.  My grandmother would put up things, but most of it was given away.  I miss being able to go back home and return with a trunk full of produce!
     Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by for a visit.
