School's out for......

the summer! woooo Hoooooo . yip yip yippe!
We went to Cristi's last night for a little BBQ with all the fun ones from work. Plans for my summer are...

1. Work in the yard
2. Read some books (just finishing 'A Long Way Gone' by Ishmael Beah... not exactly light summer reading material but super good.)
3. Draw and paint
4. Find some seriously good thrift store finds. I have already marked my calendar for all of the 50% off days at the ARC.
5. Take a few trips out of town.

There is obviously no reason why I would need a shock collar on my dog, I just strangle him to get him to mind.

Last day of school

I decided to take a few pics of my classroom before I take it down for the summer.
Next year I'll be in a new school and have a new room. I have never blogged in blog land before but figured it would be a great way to journal and show off some of my recent art work.
The wallpaper on the left I found at a vintage second hand shop on Broadway. I want to do something fun with it but until I figure out what it will probably be stapled to every wall in my house.
The lovely lamp is an ikea original and of course the clock on the wall you will find in every school classroom.
It actually makes a quiet purring hum that I've begun to find quite comforting while I'm typing away at my desk.

Bye bye Clyde Miller.
