a favorite tapestry in my home
Outside my window... it has been raining off and on all day.
Fall may have arrived in other parts of the country, but it hasn’t arrived in my world yet.
It is trying.
It was 86 degrees this morning.
I am taking it slowly- not rushing the season.
The colors in my favorite tapestry are my version of fall for now.
From the learning rooms... I am preparing for a new training that I will be doing next Saturday.
It is Day 1 of 6 days of Ginger Tucker’s First Year Teacher Academy.
I will be presenting on The Effective Teacher and on Legal Issues.
I also have 11 interns (beginning teachers) this year, and I have enjoyed my campus visits.
From the kitchen... I am being intentional about using what I have before I buy more.
I haven’t been perfect.
Even though I have a ‘not my favorite’ (as my grandson says) bag of coffee in the pantry, I purchased a pound of Community Club Columbian this morning at Target. It was on sale for $4.99.
After several cups of it tomorrow morning, I may be playing an accordian on the roof.
Coffee in the morning is one of life’s great pleasures.
I am wearing... a house dress (knit, tropical print) a la Mrs. Roper.
I am creating... an ongoing list for fall planting.
I am going... to find dark charcoal bath towels for our youngest daughter who will be moving soon.
I am reading... (this evening) The Hunger Games. I wish Kaye Gibbons had a new book.
I am hoping and praying for... health and peace for family members and friends.
I am hearing... the sound of a television show called Making the Cut (about Ranger School).
Around the house... I am going to clear away magazines- again.
One of my favorite things...laughing at my father’s theories about the economy, the drug wars, WalMart, keeping coyotes out of your yard,
and Al Dean and the All-Stars (a country western band).
