This week, Magda got to meet the real winter of Minnesota. There were a few days that never reached zero, and a few more with windchills around 30 below. This poor thing was hopping around the back yard like a bunny trying to keep her feet out of the cold, cold snow.
The worst part is that we can’t really walk her in weather like this (or rather, we don’t want to). So she’s had a few more days at doggie daycare (HUGE SUCCESS) and some playing in the backyard with her brother during the warmest parts of the afternoon. Right now she is pretty much the definition of cabin fever.
The big news for today was that I finished all of my grading for the semester! Teaching makes me ponder so many topics that I would love to discuss on this here blog, but in the interest of keeping my students’ lives private, I will not do that. Maybe a few years down the line I’d ponder a more general post about my observations. All I will say for now is that talent is very important in this world, but being able to read and follow instructions completely might take you further than you imagine. Do what you say you are going to do when you say you are going to do it and you are already winning the game.
And on that note, today’s internet share is of some funny test answers that I found on Facebook. So many brilliant answers here — I promise they will make you laugh. Guaranteed.
