A school on the block where I work. I love the way this school looks. It's old and a lot of the students think it's haunted. I used to teach after school Spanish classes there, and I have to say, it does feel kinda spooky in there after hours!

Hope? Some buds peaking through the snow! So naive.

Snow Cat

This adorable cat stops me to pet it every morning on my walk. I can't help but oblige.

January stump

I know this picture is random, but this stump with snow in it just caught my attention today.

Easily Amused

Kathy, Justin, Ann, and I have way too much fun with those little capsules that turn into something in warm water.

Happy Winter

There's something slightly creepy about this snowman now that I look at it again...

Toxic Fumes

We thought Justin was having a stroke or something today when only he could smell smoke in our office (is that a symptom?), but eventually we smelled the burning too. We're still not sure where the smell is coming from but Justin decided to slow down his brain damage by wearing one of our swine flu masks until the source is identified.

Playing with Dominoes with Ellery (she's 10). A funny quote from her today:

Ellery: I'm never getting married. I'm just going to adopt a kid.

Me: Why don't you want to get married?

Ellery: I don't want to be bossed around.
