I work in an elementary school as a teacher aide in Special Education Kindergarten. I love it! I get to work with kids and not have to plan lessons or have the heavy responsibility that the teachers have. It’s still hectic and stressful though. We do our full 8 hours, and stop for very few of those minutes. It’s go-go-go all day. That’s a why I’m looking forward to the four-day fall break we get this weekend!
When tomorrow at 3:15 hits, I am out the door. I plan to cuddle up this weekend with some fresh baked apple crisp, tea, and my new book on giant, rogue waves. I’m going to write a lot and relax. I’ll listen to music and turn on the heat as the temperatures fall a bit and stay warm knowing I don’t have to go anywhere for four days (except church, which I enjoy and will be a part of the relaxing and nice festivities.)
Here is a fall photo from yesterday, haying in the field next door. The first guy with the circular blades rides around in a grid pattern and fluffs up the hay. The second guy comes after, in a tractor type thing that scoops up the fluffed up hay and apparently it is molded into a round bale inside the tractor. When the receptacle is full, the lid slowly opens and for all the world it looks like a dinosaur poops out an egg.
