Day 355 – December 21, 2018
There are a number of traditions that most have during the holidays. From baking cookies, to ugly sweaters, to caroling in the town square, there are a number that contribute to the seasons holidays. In my new school, there is a tradition, that had not been shared with me, yet, where the classes create a “holiday light” sculpture in their classrooms in a friendly competition. This is the entry for the auto body classes, set up in the garage. I found it to be one of the most creative display as they managed to make a sailboat look like a Christmas tree. All of the frame work were entirely from parts of the body of a car. Pretty cool looking, even moreso in person. On another note, it has been a really crazy first day of winter. When I went to bed last night, the temps were in the upper 30’s, when I woke this morning mid 50’s, when I left work mid 60’s. It has been raining the past two days, and tonight, after a few more stops at car dealers, I watched as this ominous darkness overtook the sky as a winter cold front suddenly decided to intervene on an early spring warm front. In a matter of an hour, the temps fell at least 15 degrees, and are continuing to drop as I type. It’s just part of the wonderful appeal of winter! Time for the weekend! Look forward to some peace and joy.
