Gramma Izzie always fed "her birds" (wild birds), and I started doing it after she died. I'm still doing it. I have four feeders on the porch, and I recently put up a glass hanging birdbath (but the birds wouldn't go near it with water so I am using it as a feeder now and … Continue reading Bird treats
I had about two hours of driving time to/from work this past school year, and I used that time to listen to quite a few audio books. I keep a "want to read" list, and I started to rate books on my list as I finished them. If you're looking for books/audiobooks for your summer … Continue reading What I’ve been reading
Bare room again I'm not going back into the physical brick and mortar classroom next year. There are so many reasons why...and if I started telling the stories from this year, you would scoff and say there was no way those things happened...but they did. And these things are happening everywhere across the nation right … Continue reading I’m done

Again, they had me stay a little while longer than normal because of my Dad having so many allergies, and again, I had no … Continue reading My COVID19 2nd vaccine – Day 1
Friday is a terror. I know she doesn't look like it, but she IS. See that toy under her? We have to hide it at night or else she runs all over the house with it, dragging it from one room to another, over and over and over. She thumps up and down the stairs … Continue reading Friday
A coworker emailed all of the teachers in our building to say she'd cleaned her classroom and placed freebies on a desk outside her classroom door. Look at all the math manipulatives and other goodies that I scored!!!
Sunday, 2/7/2021 - There's truly not much to say about this today. It's been 48.5 hours since I received the COVID19 vaccine, and I had no more arm soreness at all as of this morning. I am running a slight fever now though but honestly wouldn't have known except that Ted touched my face and … Continue reading My COVID19 vaccine- Day 3 update
