Reward

Filed under: Important stuff,Personal,Work — allmycke @ 7:19 pm

Getting rewarded can mean so many things. For me…

Gabriel i början

…it’s being able to go for a trek in the high mountains about 90 miles  (140km) from town. Mind you – he walked a lot faster than I could ever do, but went along with his classmates. When we met again, he was happy but hungry.

It’s not exactly hard, being a teacher a day like this. I am blessed!

Woody Woodpecker Was Here

Filed under: Nature,Photography — allmycke @ 9:23 pm

After a storm there were som fairly tall trees that toppled over. In there horizontal state, they are still an important source for woodpecker dining.

Woodpecker tracksWhat a precise Anticimex-kind-of attack by a woodpecker – who accepts free food as payment.

BTW – does anyone know what species of woodpecker  leaves this elegant pattern when chasing little beetles?

How is it Possible?

I mean – to pack so many things into less than 72 hours?

Balancing Act

I wonder in which direction it’ll all tip over…

It’s a bit disconcerting that the days are getting shorter – and so fast!

I usually stick to plants that will never bloom, but this was one I couldn’t resist

Celebrate or Not?

Filed under: Important stuff,Personal — allmycke @ 7:38 pm

I know better than to bank on victories not yet secured, but sometimes…Beacuse I am Worth it… there is a place for celebrating even the smallest of steps in the right direction.
Today I was blessed with having  a student arrive – almost in time for first period and then staying in school until shortly after lunch. He was communicative, answered my questions and told me what he wanted. We had lunch together with my other guy, who enjoyed the company of a classmate for the first time this term.

The roses cost me about $5 and will grace my table for at least 4-5 days.

Yes, I am blessed.

The ripples after a big, fat boat that came roaring along the channel closest to Boulder Ridge.

Disturbing the peace
