I've spent the past couple of days going back and forth between feeling like I have a solid plan and then picking apart that solid plan until it's just a bunch of loose threads... Many, many deep breaths later, and I've decided that this will just be a semester of taking one day at a time, meeting my students where they are, with whatever I can offer them.
The "plan," for now, is to keep a good record of all I do this term, so that I'll be a little more prepared the next time around.
Also: I suppose it shouldn't have been such a surprise, with all this school business afoot, but it's the Autumn Equinox this Sunday! Our's will be a pretty full weekend already, with my classes beginning on Monday and another very big (or, small?) something happening on Sunday, but I'm sure we'll find a way to celebrate...
There's a plum tree down by the river just begging for picking.
Do you have plans for welcoming in the Fall?
PS: You might notice things look a little different around here. I realized that it had been over three years since I last updated the look of the blog, and as we've moved into a new home and daily patterning, I thought it was time for a change, something fresh and open. I think I like it.
