This has been a weird year. July was cool; September is HOT. Today, however, I was given the promise of fall. Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte returned, and I know the cool weather, the colorful trees, and the hint of snow is not far behind.
Downton Abbey started last week, and tonight’s a new episode. So excited!
Tonight, I’m thankful for friends willing to go see crazy shows! Quidam was fantastic!
Due to a snow day on the last day of finals, we finished finals on Monday and started second semester on Tuesday, so I’ve been living in two semesters all week. Tonight, I am thankful to have put semester one to rest: grades turned in, things filed.
Tonight I prepped for teaching some AP kids that aren’t really mine. It’s a grant, and I get to teach some Saturday sessions. So far, it’s been fun, and I’m glad I have the opportunity and had some time to plan tonight.
Tonight, I planted myself at my dining room table and FINISHED grading the essays my kids did for finals on Monday. I’m so glad they are done!
I’ve gotten back into yoga this year, and it’s been great. Our site took a couple weeks off during the holidays, but tonight, we started again. I missed it.
Last week, we had teacher meeting. Today, students came back. I’d so much rather be in school when students are there.
Over break, I’ve done a bunch of tutoring with a family I’ve worked with for several years. I’m so thankful God brought this fantastic family into my life.
Tonight, we had a fantastic family dinner complete with steaks, caramelized mushrooms, and bread pudding. Add to that a Packer win, and it was pretty much a perfect day.
