I was busy day marking papers at Student Link this morning, and the corrected papers will also lead, I hope, to lots of students coming in for help as I had to make more corrections than usual. I assembled a new table for tutoring while I was waiting for my lunch to cook. I was pleased with the quality, the price, and the ease of assembly. I have it next to my desk with Oliver’s crate and a file drawer below (students don’t need to worry about knees), and I think it will be much nicer and easier for tutoring. We had been using a long folding table, but that was a pain to set up and take down, and Calliope likes this much better! I thought I’d get to try it out today, but my one student was a no show (a rare occurrence for him, but I’ve been getting more of them along with really late shows and that doesn’t please me). But I’m sure I’ll get a lot of use out of it as the year progresses. I went to my therapy appointment and then started a new review novel as I waited for the student who never came. Time now to call it a day!

to the fog horn
as shadows
lengthen
across the lawn
