I'm truly sad that April vacation is now over. I have to go to work in thirty minutes and it's actually painful for me to think about it. I didn't do any school work over vacation, aside from a modicum of lesson planning last night. Don't know why I always bring work home over vacations. I never do it. Really, once April vacation is over, though, we're in the final stretch. Only 40 days left (or so). I need to get the exact count and mark it on my calendar and begin the countdown.
It was a good vacation. I didn't do anything major. Had Easter with the family, worked in my Dad's office a couple days, visited Paola, scrapped. Let's see if I can show you some pictures.
This was a fun night. I do love a cosmo. Paola and I are having a tender moment. That's what we like to call the linked-arm drinking thing. Among others things. We're pretty into tender moments. Good thing too, since she might be my hetero life partner someday. That's the plan, anyway. Next day we went for falafel with Patti. I love food in general, but I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say this is the best falafel I've ever had in my life. And I've had my share of falafel. Tangiers in Hartford. If you're ever in the neighborhood. We chatted with the brothers who work there for a long time. Mainly because we're nosy. We ask a lot of questions. They're adorable and as I said, they make to-die-for falafel. And did I mention the baklava. No, I don't think I did. It's splendid. I had to capture the experience in scrapbook form. Sadly, no pictures of the adorable boys. Maybe next time.
I just noticed that I divided both of these pages in half vertically with a red chipboard strip. Hmm. I don't think there's any significance aside from the fact that it seemed to work well in both cases.
I also scrapped about an Easter rabbit doll that used to belong to my Nana. Actually, she had many, many such dolls. Though not all of them were Easter-related. I think they're called Annabelle Lee dolls. Man, she loved them. And everyone else thinks they're extraordinarily ugly. But since Nana loved them so much, we use the Easter rabbit one as a centerpiece.
And now I have ten minutes to brush teeth, put on make-up, make lunch, grab my books and run out the door. Please make this day over.
