Catching Up and Checking In

Happy Presidents’ Day, people!

The East Coast has been getting seriously hammered with snow and ice these past weeks—snow days from school abound, it seems, and another one loomed as I wrote this. Gave up grumping about having to make them up later, opting to be grateful I don’t have to brave the slippery, slidy elements in a car or other form of transportation. Makes for a much more peaceful day, in my head, anyway.

winter 2014-2  The ice got quite thick. We’re blessed not to have lost power. 

winter2014 Hubby’s newer car is under there. About 2 feet of solid snow and ice are between its front and the fence. 

V-day flowers 2014

Hubby  made sure I was not w/o flowers for Valentine’s Day, so I got these two days prior.  I wound up snowed in, so he got his first hand-made card (a color-by-numbers I’d used with my students at school–special thanks to Mrs. M for bringing that to school in the first place). Of course, hubby shows me up by pulling my card from under his pillow before it was light enough to see on Valentine’s day. That’s a Leo for you…)

Vday for dad 2014 Made sure I cropped out the mushy stuff I wrote on the side 🙂

So, between snow days and a high-profile (?) report last week got away from me. I am, however, thrilled to report I’ve made serious headway into a presentation/workshop I’ve been working on. (PowerPoint part done. Check!) Next, I’ll be trying my hand at CreateSpace to put together a related booklet. (Tips welcome.) After that, promo letter and maybe a separate blog dedicated to the topic.

Anybody out there with thoughts re: getting started on types of venues to book? Paid or not? I’m thinking about reaching out to PTAs in neighboring districts and libraries to start. I’m sure there are many more and would love input.

Thanks and have a great week!

  1. What type of presentations are you working on? Sounds like you want to get into schools and libraries? I might have some info. Not sure if it will help, but you never know. Let me know!
