this is the second snow day this year, which is seemingly insane, considering that last year we got the first one in many, many years. it came at the end of the worst work week ever, consisting of the expulsion of a favorite student, others found cheating, few listening, and the necessity to write progress reports for more than 2/3 of my students. the worst week since i have had this job. i am tired. so, thank you, mother nature, for this snow and the day off. i really needed it.
mid-morning snowed-in meal, accompanied by a devastating episode of this american life: a slice of toasted ciabatta with fresh ricotta, pepper, sea salt, and tomato; orange bell pepper; small red and yellow potatoes with garlic in olive oil and butter (so decadent), fried egg. and intelligentsia coffee. yes.
