Yeah for President's Day ...
and the chance to breathe, relax and enjoy the blessings of the United States of America!!
Listening -- To Pandora. It's soft, quiet and a gentle rhythm for my Sunday afternoon. My son gave me a Pandora subscription again this year and I love it! I play a special station in my classroom, another after the students are gone and yet another on Sunday! I love it. Thanks, Q!
Eating -- It was Jennie's week to cook and she treated me like a queen. I especially loved the little filet mignons that we had for Valentine's Day. Certainly cheaper than any restaurant AND we didn't have to face the crowds. (One of my students gave me a lovely cake that was the perfect dessert that night as well. Thank you mucho!) I've also recently discovered a Honey Greek Yogurt that is out of this world. Rich and I both love it. It has been great for lunch this week. Yummers!
Loving -- Family! My niece came home from living in the Dominican Republic for 20 months. It feels great to welcome her back and feel like our family is back together. She's a big part of our lives and to say that we missed her is an understatement. Yeah for family!
Reading-- Last Writes by Sheila Lowe.
I am also ready to read The Marriage Bureau for Rich People for Book Group and a little Lisa Scottoline just for fun!! I finally visited the library yesterday for the first time in weeks. I knew something was missing!!
Feeling -- Sunday-afternoon-satisfied. I love the calm of knowing that I don't have to go to work tomorrow.
Thinking -- How fortunate we are to have J&K and baby Tinsley living with us right now. It is the perfect arrangement at the perfect time. We are so blessed!!!!! Now if I could only perfect that Mary Poppins way of housecleaning where everything flies into perfect order I would be totally content.
Wanting -- "More time to just sit, think, ponder, read, listen and be still. Some times on Sunday night I feel that I 'pay' for enjoying my Saturday." This was last week's quote. I think I really got just what I wanted today. So I guess I don't need much else - - oh, yeah... A job for Rich. Just puttin' it out there.
This Week -- Eye Appointment, Dinner with my in-laws (I adore them! I love these bi-weekly dinners. It's such a treat to be with them.) Planning, Tutoring, Meetings for work, Literacy Night at school (It's supposed to RAIN. A LOT. - our 'Reading Under the Stars' may have a little twist or two!)We also have a party to attend this weekend as well. There's so much to look forward to.
Just Noting...So many bloggers that I adore and follow are leaving blogging and boy will I miss their humor, insight and comments. I am not a 'regular' blogger but I love posting when I do, reading other blogs and getting fresh ideas and opinions from so many of you. Thank you for your friendship. I just know if we lived nearby we would be a raucous bunch! Thanks for being at the other end of this Internet-tether.
