Outside my window: It's dark and delightful. Of course that could be because it's almost MIDNIGHT!! Go to bed already!
I am listening to: Silence. It's been a full day. It feels like a full-belly....
Favorite Things of the Week: Vacationing. Finding my own bed. Conferencing. (I know it's surprising, but I love meeting the parents of my students. I was tired but it was exciting.)
I am thinking: about organization. I was NOT in that line when we were given gifts for this life in Heaven. I wish I was the kind of person who was inherently organized. It is my goal!
I am grateful for: My job. I am falling in love with teaching all over again. I am grateful for apples. I had an apple this week that was bigger than a baby's head!!! It was incredible AND delicious!
I am reading: A State of Wonder by Ann Patchett and The Phantom Tollbooth for my 4th graders.
I am listing: Lesson plans. Projects. Costume ideas - for ME!
I am creating: A Halloween thank you gift for a friend who translated 7 of my conferences and she was great. Putting together a little something for her has satisfied that urge to create that rears it's head around this time of year.
Some of my favorite things: Bracelets. Coke Zero.
Plans for the week: Church with a few of my kiddos tomorrow. Teach Science. Prepare a Halloween Costume for ME!! At my new school it seems like Halloween is a National Holiday. I have to think of something clever for the parade on Friday. I am thinking of going as the Paper Bag Princess (Jennie did it this week and said that it was fun and clever AND key word - EASY!!
Plans for NOW : SLEEP!
