View from my bed


If you follow my classroom blog you may know that I am off work for the next 6 weeks or so. I had abdominal surgery yesterday -- but am home now and well on the road to recovery. It was REALLY REALLY hard to leave the kids on Thursday. And the parents and my coworkers. I work in a pretty great school and I consider these people my family.......

Hopefully I'll be able to make some art soon, but for now, I'm reading. I have school books, art books and novels. I've just finished Continuity Girl and a very light trashy novel called Bet Me.

I stuck some cards and pictures that the children made for me on the door (please ignore the purple -- I painted the room 2 1/2 years ago but haven't painted the trim or doors yet......). The cards and the pictures make me very happy!
(if you want to see a picture of me right after surgery -- go to my classroom blog after Saturday 8am -- I don't look too bad)
(my bedroom is teeny tiny -- less than 10x10 -- and it has 2 doors and a window. The only furniture in it is the bed, bedside tables and bookshelves. What more do you need? Oh, other than some cardboard boxes to sit my fan on..... Maybe I need a small bench here....)

I think you have a great view. Yes what more do you need. I have chairs everywhere. I really like to buy chairs. Subconsciously I'm going to sit down one of these days. Hope your recovery goes well, and looking forward to your art.

Ever the teacher! Your children are very lucky to have someone who can take them through this scary time with such grace! What an innovative idea - just like Franklin indeed. You look amazing and hope that your recovery gives you the chance to enjoy some nice reading!

MARTHA BROWN ! I am so happy to hear you are doing ok. I took some time off from the blog and did not know you had the boo boo.
Been reading and catching up with your bloggy. LOVE the banners. And that little house is adorable.
One World One Heart is coming up. I'm trying to get back in the writing groove beforehand.
