Seven Quick Takes
I hope and intend to get back into a more regular writing routine sometime really, really soon, but until then, here is what's happening in our neck of the woods:
1. Working Nine to Five . . . Or Something Like That
I’ve gone back to work for the first time in fourteen years. I am a high school English teacher once again. A very part-time English teacher, but a teacher all the same. I hope at least this paragraph is error free.
2. More Frum Ainsey

Sore. You kate pla on the kinpyotr.
Translation at the end of this post.
3. So Long, Farewell to the Pool
I nearly wept the last day we spent at the pool, so fun has it all been this summer. Among the other high points, here's Ainsley in June:

4. Take This, Pinterest!
I don’t tend to make grandiose household plans during the summer. With lots of comings and goings, lots of travel, lots of togetherness, my plans are typically: Stay cool. Go to the pool. Don’t annihilate each other. Read. Go back to the pool.
I don’t generally paint, sew, rearrange. This summer, however, I fully intended to transform this:
And we’re nearly there!
Here's John and Grandpa checking out my boy's first Walleye.
6. A Room with a View
Here's what I took in while washing dishes:
And a closeup:
|John - part tree frog, all boy.|
7. Head over to Kelly's to add your quick takes and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Oh, here's the translation: Sorry! You can't play on the computer. I found out later that she left the note for Daddy, not John.
