Snow Day on Monday, January 10

Because of the severe winter storm threatening the southeast US, our school system has already announced school closings for Monday. A large majority of our students ride the bus to and from school and icy winter conditions on small country roads necessitate the closing. So there goes our Good Friday holiday.....which will be used as a makeup day.

HOWEVER, the Auburn University Tigers are playing for the BCS National Championship in Glendale, Arizona on Monday night. Auburn is about 25 miles away and is my alma mater. Soooo, Monday is a great day to be home getting ready for the game. Just hope the power stays on.

A big War Eagle to all of you. "Hey, it's great to be an Auburn Tiger".

Finished My First Book on My Kindle

Today I finished my first read on the Kindle. It's been kind of neat...right now a novelty I think. It was the final book in the Richelle Mead Vampire Academy series. I knew one of my 5th grade teachers would have the hardback when we got back to school, but it was nice to think of it, ask for it, Amazon sent it, the credit card paid for it and I could start to read. I also loaded A Tale of Two was free. But there are 2 Karen Kingsbury books calling my name....Time to Dance and Time to Embrace. Those before Dickens I think.

Thanks to my husband for wanting me to have something before I even knew I needed it.
