Calvin: Faces

Friday Follies....

(don't ya just love alliteration? I do....) Today is cheese-making day. Farmhouse cheddar, since my Manchego hasn't been turning out exactly right lately. Not sure why....maybe I'm not calculating the press weights correctly? Anyway - cheddar. It cleared out most of the milk in the fridge - which was needed.

I spent a few hours last night working on next week's lesson plans. We've finished Minimus Secundus, and are going to start Wheelock's Latin next week. :ack!: I *knew* it was a college-level text (used in some AP Latin classes in High School), but I had NO idea of how.....well, intense is a good word. Especially when you add in the supplementary books. I have a plan for the year.....wow. It's going to be intense. I might have to slow down the schedule....we'll see.

I think Texas has decided to skip straight to winter this year - it was 41* this AM. :shiver: I wish the weather would decide what it wants to do - it's supposed to hit 80* today. That's Texas for ya....

Need to start gathering stuff for school. Shabbat Shalom!

RIP Big Tex...

Big Tex goes up in flames

I just....wow. 60 years he's been there, greeting folks as they come into the fair. This is sad.....but they say he'll be back next year, bigger than ever. I hope so - because the Fair simply won't be the same without him.


Anyway, back to Shabbat prep. Shabbat Shalom!
