“A Test A Day with Spring on the Way”

Is today Monday, or is it Tuesday?  It feels like Monday because it feels like a repeat of yesterday, but I know it’s really Tuesday.  The only difference is the test.  This week, final tests are due which means there is a test per class–one test a day.  Yesterday was the test in Social Studies, today is the test in Math.

I’ve been chewing on my fingers all day, anticipating what her final score will be.  She did very well on her Social Studies test, but Math is a harder subject for her.  I think Social Studies is easy to comprehend, but it’s boring.  Math (depending on the teacher) is interesting, but it can be harder to grasp for some.  I can’t say anything, the “pigeon-hole theory” baffles me.

Now that class connect is over, I’m sitting here, thinking about my next move which is why I chose to write a new blog post.  Pacing from one side of my office window to the other, I was looking out the window.  I guess I was taking in the scenery though my thoughts were elsewhere, but a splash of ‘budding’ caught my attention.  Forgetting my thoughts, I focused on what I was looking at.  Buds, or blossoms of some sort, springing to life from a mess of thin, twig-like branches of a shrub tree.  Just yesterday, or maybe it was a few days ago, probably earlier last week, I was wondering when we would start to see everything grow back.  That’s why I love the Spring!

There’s another shrub tree in our wooded front yard, but it’s not yet blossomed like the other one.  Instead of blossoms, the twig-like limbs are dotted with tiny, light leafy-green bulbs.  Seeing them excites me for the full coming of Spring!

This reminds me, I was able to gather the materials I wanted and needed to start my vegetable seedlings inside.  On St.Patrick’s Day I spent the day outside, set up on a large tarp playing with sugar cones, soil, seeds, and water.  I’m please to share that since I started those seedlings, I have four sprouts.  Three cucumber plants and a tomato plant!  I don’t expect to yield much from my first garden, but I am hopeful.
