Long Silence = Whirlwind Fall

So a wise woman, and former teacher, reminded me that I'd be busy this fall with teaching...And I thought, surely not! I'm pinch-hitting a course this fall but was given the syllabus, book, and powerpoint dummies (and they were seriously dummies). I thought it would be easy-pleasy. But OH MAN. Prepping 2 weekly 75 minute lectures (and reading and grading and test making) is very different than teaching the upper-level discussion/seminar-based courses I've been used to...Egads.

So yes - a long silence on my end. However, I did have time for a guest blog over at Green Tulsa. I talked about trying to steal little bits of time for myself whenever and however I can and then to use them mindfully...very a propos right about now.

More on gardening, living, and eco-psychology coming as soon as I can take a deep breath...

Yay - looking forward to your eco-psychology perspective! Hang in there!

Thank you for the mention and the compliment....wise? I am not sure about that
I am so glad that I am NOT teaching this year. With all the sports, official colleges visits, and other goings on with DD2, I think I would be bald by now if I was working full time.
I will be thinking of you...sending positive, stress-free vibes southward to you...and wishing for a pleasant semester for you.
So glad to see you around....
