Things I am loving this Friday:
1. Obviously, Baxter's new hair cut. He makes me smile every time I look at him. (The Mr. confessed to chuckling every time he sees him!)
2. Sunshine. We had a couple of really windy days, but we've also had nice cool temperatures and stillness. One morning this week, it was 45 degrees, clear and calm when I ran. Absolutely the perfect weather for me!
3. K or L put me onto this. I suppose I am the last person to find out about Oatmeal To Go, but 15 seconds in the microwave and it is absolutely delicious. It has become my favorite noon meal. (Well, I have an apple or an orange, too!) I can vouch for the brown sugar and cinnamon! Yum!
* The research papers are in. (OK. That means a lot of grading, so I'm not sure that is a perk!)
*We're starting my favorite unit: "To Kill A Mockingbird."
*A student stuck around after school to discuss my book recommendation for him: "The Great Gatsby."
*We learned about some fun teaching websites at inservice.
*Everyone has had fun watching the construction crews making rapid progress on our new school!
Easy Street is green and flowering. Hopefully, there will be time for biking, walking, reading, and napping this weekend. And I think the fire ring may be calling my name again. Spring had definitely sprung! I think the fever is setting in!
