Since arriving in San Diego on Thursday, Bela and I have seen Old Town (with Lila), explored a bit of the Gaslamp Quarter and had some great meals.  Sunday after I went to the convention center one last time, we ate brunch at the Broken Yolk Café.  The waitress (Hannah) was super and the food was abundant.  I couldn’t finish it all.  They have a challenge meal of a 12-egg omelet with four biscuits and more that you have to eat in one hour.  By yourself.  It costs $26.99, but the bragging rights might be worth it.  (Not to me, though!)

Sparks Gallery was right across the street from Hotel Z, so we had to see everything in there before we left.


I didn't know Bela was stalking me.

Props for Teaching

In Spanish class I sometimes use props. My favorite group relates to food. I teach the vocabulary along with the food items. Later in the unit, I hand out shopping lists for the students, and we play store.

Here's a shot of the vocabulary to be learned.

Do you ever get to the point where you are tired of everything? I am there now. I’m thinking of possible solutions as I go. I am tired of eating the same food. I’ve got my eye on a couple of new recipes we might try soon. That will add some variety.

I’m tired of working all the time. That one is a bit trickier to fix. I love my jobs, though. The main problem is I’m tired of being tired when I go to work. To fix that, I need to put myself on a strict schedule. I know I’ll have to force myself to go to bed early enough! I’m not up all night, but it’s so easy to get distracted and stay up later than planned.

OK, done with whining…maybe I’ll take a nap!?
