The last few days have been so busy. On Thursday I left school early, Jeremy and I met some friends from Texas in Salem, MA. It was so good to see people from so far away and hear a Texas accent again. What some people up here may not understand is that some southern accents, specifically a Texas accent, can be very comforting. We ate lunch at Salem Beer Works, and I had one of the best pizzas I’ve had since Italy. It was called the Fenway.  Horrible name but the pesto was just right, not too much of a licorice flavor, and the tomatoes burst when you bit them.


After lunch, we headed to the Salem Witch Museum, which I’ve now been to three times. People love a diorama. After the museum we went to the House of Seven Gables.

They were the type of people who try to inform the tour guide of their “own findings.” It was a beautiful spring  day with lots of sunshine and warmth. We wandered around, stopping and sitting in the shade when we felt like it.

Friday was another sunshine day with a twist. During my prep I was sitting at my desk just minding my own business. Another teacher came into the room saying, “There’s a moose! A moose!” Side Note: I have been trying to see a moose every since I moved to NH. We have hiked and camped and never seen a moose. The moose was very young and obviously lost. It finally ran away. I hope it made it back to some safe place. By a stroke of luck I had my camera at school today.




Seeing a moose during the day at school obviously created lots of chaos and rowdy students. It took me a few minutes to get my freshmen down from a full boil to a simmer.

After school I chaperoned a barbeque. Jeremy came to hang out with me. When we got home at 6:30, he watered the garden and then we fell asleep for four  hours. Oops! It’s now 1 am. Oh well.

Have you ever seen a moose? I still want to see one in the wilds of Northern New Hampshire.

    I have seen a moose but it was in Yellowstone National Park. I love MOOSE! I have a friend who lives in Northern, NH and she recently sent me a picture text of a Moose that read “only in NH”.

    I also love Salem – beautiful pics of the House of Seven Gables.

    I’ve actually had a moose in my yard in Candia. She walked within a few feet of me.
