Happy Crackers Over Your Keyboard Day!
Merry Race Your Mouse Around Your Computer Icons Day!
Well I celebrated these holidays by reporting back to school. I sat in a meeting most of the day 😦 but did finish getting my classroom set up :). I am feeling prepared and have had the first look at one of my classes, I am optimistic that this will be a great year! I also got a special surprise today that was unexpected…a new classroom computer! What is particularly unexpected is that it is running on Windows 8. There is a learning curve! But after a few google searches and a very helpful tips and tricks page I am feeling confident that I know how to navigate the interface effectively enough not to look like a bloody fool the first day of school. In honor of my new tablet computer I did both of these activities with it. Racing my mouse around my icons was a little boring because I took all the icons off of my desktop in order to be feng shei with the whole tiles thing.
I am also working on some new paintings for my living room to liven up the corner of one of the gray walls (liven up the living room…anyone catch that one?) So I am posting a photo of my progress so far. I still have about 11 canvases to finish so it should be quite the installation piece (is it called an installation piece if the gallery is a living room? and I’m not/nor will ever be famous?) I will continue to post pictures of my projects as I finish them. I have several waiting in the wings to get started and several more waiting to get finished.
