Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

time marches on

It's finals week at Clackamas Community College, and the living is NOT easy. Some teachers are getting the notion that they can dump all their final exams on the testing center, and our administrators are letting them get away with it. We are already at the point where people have to sit and wait for a seat to take their tests, and it will only get worse as the deadlines approach. I guess, when someone who works finds out that she will not be able to take her final because the test center is full during her only window of opportunity, and takes the problem, in fury, to the college prez, then things eill change. Until then, we peons in the trenches will try to placate nervous, fretful, stressed-out students (and their parents.)Oh joy. I am SO looking forward to the end of this week!!

Life in the valley is lush. Forsythia are fountaining exuberant floral ejaculations of yellow, flowering quince are blushing scarlet, apple trees are beginning to pop their buds, the magnolia in our backyard is getting very sexy looking, and undergrowth is greening up gloriously in the wetlands. It's raining raining raining raining which keeps things green,green,green all summer. March showers bring full watertables. April showers bring Mayflowers. Mayflowers bring pilgrims.

    Way before I got to the magnolia I caught your drift, Georgia. But where are the pix?

    Lucky you and the spring and the flowers. We have the rain but everything still looks dead. But we'll get there . . . eventually!

    Evidently we're less than an inch of rain behind you Oregonians. That's a lot of rain rain rain for us down here, too.

    I hope the rain washes away the stresses.

    Reminds me of the Winnie the Pooh song "and the rain rain rain came down down down in rushing writing rivulets...". We have had an extraordinary amount of rain. When I left for work this morning the daffs looked like they were ready to pop. With just a little sunshine, they will. I can't wait to get home and check.
