Springtime in Illinois

April 6??  Already?  Good Friday and Easter Sunday and then another day of school/work.

It’s well past midterms.

I’ve started doing batch updates of Summer and Fall icgorldi data into WebCT so that faculty members can prep their sections.

Still waiting for final word on our next LMS.

So much to do.

And then I look out the window.  Did you know I get to sit by a window?  I can see blue sky and flowering trees and birds and squirrels and rabbits.

I missed the day when the fox was out here, but I saw the hawk sitting in the tree with half of a dead bunny drop it on the sidewalk.  Then I watched the students step off the sidewalk to walk around and avoid it, until the hawk re-appropriated it and flew away.

Some days, looking out the window provides just the break I need before I start in again.

Some days it helps me to refocus.

And some days, I just wish it was time to be out there in that sun and breeze.
