What I am thankful for at the moment

Coffee in the morning.
Seeing my Betty cat come home after 5 days gone.
My students, for sharing.
That moment in the classroom where learning clicks into a buzz of activity.
Once a month dinner club with the girls is tonight. The theme is Texan. Though I had the best of intentions I hear IGA makes a great pecan pie :)
My students, for caring.


Teachers who give hugs when needed.
52 Sketchbooks to look at today.
The warmth and crackle of the fire.
Yesterday the sun came out. And was still out past 4:30.
The crunch of the snow under my dogs’ paws.
Pedagogical days.

  2. Thanks, Elona & Mike. It’s nice to hear feedback like that. I ended up forgoing the night out. What a Friday I had! One thing about living out in the country, it makes socializing when exhausted a little tricky.

  3. I like the Hallmark Channnel is has a lot to do with the heart of people. This web site reminds me of the good stories on the TV channel. It is the little things that make us real happy. May God Bless all of you!
