The Friday Five Good Things

Five things that happened this week.

1. Enjoying the new season (11th ) of Supernatural.  We missed some of the episodes from the previous season so thanks to Netflix are able to catch up.

2. Went to see the movie The Martian. Exciting story, very well done. We saw it in 3D though the effect wasn't as dramatic as I thought it would be.

3. Plans were in the works to take my class on a field trip to the museum's Prints Department.

4. I thought this year's Fall foliage a bit dull. On Wednesday, the colors suddenly popped. Most of the trees in my yard are yellow and when the sun set, the whole yard was bathed in a beautiful golden light. Of course, I didn't have my camera ready and the light changed so quickly.

5. My class got to visit the Prints Department. I requested from the collection a 14th to 15th century Italian manuscript, a leaf from the  86th Psalm. It's so exciting to see hand done work up close. The curator even showed us the verso (left hand) side. And to show a modern use of lettering in artwork, we also got to see Worcester artist, Howard Johnson's One Day the Cannibals Raided the Cookie Jar Such a fun piece.

How was your week?
