Blogger is being a testy old lady today... and wants to take an eternity to upload a simple photo.
Sorry, I got tired of waiting. Its a sky photo, which can come in handy any day. So another day then.
Yay! The weekend is finally here.
Not that we have anything special planned.
Tomorrow will be the next Duck game.
We play Arizona there... in the heat, which our boys are not very used to, so it should add an interesting element to the game.
I don't know how Arizona is ranked, but they should prove to be a better test of our ability.
Today it is beautiful here. The rainy days are gone for a few days and I plan to get out in the yard to continue my endless battle with the weeds.
We slept in. Mostly because of a wicked chocolate jones last night around midnight...
that sent us off on a run to 7-Eleven.
Not the cheapest way to shop for chocolate...
we left with twelve dollars worth.
Okay... I would like your opinion on an idea that popped into my head.
As you know, I'd like to be bringing some money into the house and my unemployment is still up in the air.
So, I thought about contracting myself out as
a "story lady".
That was part of my job the past 15 years and I truly enjoy reading out loud to children.
I don't have many books, but I've read soooo many and there is a nice library here that can fill my needs.
It was not unusual for a teacher to call and ask me if I had time to read a story or two to the class so that she could get copies run off, attend a meeting, etc.
So my brilliant idea is to make up fliers selling my services for teachers.
I have no clue if it would fly or fall flat.
I do know that every class has a budget for such things.
What do you think? Would it be a waste of time or might it pull in a bit of pocket money?
That's really all I am looking for...
I doubt seriously that it could work into anything more than "extra money".
However, it could open up a door as well as keep me in good practice.
I honestly am interested in your opinion.
On another note... the rains have brought the snails and slugs out.
Walking last night, we smashed 3 snails in the short walk to the truck.
Beware of tiny crunchy terrors
and have a great weekend.
