Some recent loves...
*S'more cupcakes. They were a box mix. YUM!! And so not on the diet plan.
*Redd's Strawberry Ale. I really liked their Apple Ale, but I could switch to the Strawberry.
*Socratic Seminar. My sophomores really have done a great job of learning how to be part of a discussion. They don't have to agree, but they have to be respectful to each other, intelligent in the vocabulary they use, and support their arguments with evidence from their text. A sure sign of success: two boys stopped by after school to tell me how much they enjoyed it and asked if we could start a debate team. Progress.
*Cooler temperatures, if only for a few days.
*Les Mis has made it to HBO. I really liked the movie when we saw it in the theater.
*My hair dresser telling me she thinks I may make it through this grow out, without having to color it again. We shall see, but I am more hopeful. I love the cut she gave me, and I am an OK mix of blonde, brown, and gray. (Of course, I'm not the one have to look at it very often!)
*Cantaloupe and yogurt for breakfast. What a great way to start the day.
*The work my stagecraft class is doing. We have a lot to do, but they are really pitching in and going after it. Bless their hearts!
*I especially love that it is September. Fall has always been my favorite season: pumpkins, sweater weather (hopefully), cooler mornings and evenings, football, and crisp apples.
