Day 234 (965)

I feel like my classroom is ready for the first day of school on Monday. Well except for the few things I did bring home to work on over the weekend. Lol. I did a duck today for my creature. But I forgot to take a picture of it. I'll have to do that on Monday. I'm adding it to a poster in my classroom.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 233 (964)

A very long hot and sticky day. No a/c in the classroom, hanging out in the hot buildings at the State Fair and coming home tonight to no air conditioning I'm ready for a cold shower and bed. The State Fair was great. Got to see my cousin's wife,  her daughter and their cute goat. We also had 9 3rd place winners and eight honorable mentions for student art.    Overall great day. Peace and fabulousness

Day 232 (963)

I feel like I worked hard today but I'm not sure actually what I all got done. Other than finding that there's raccoons living in the condemned house next door and watching a suspicious car this evening parking around the neighborhood, still not sure what I got done lol.

Day 224 (955)

What a beautiful summer day. It was a bit sad today, as people mourn the death of Robin Williams. I think it especially causes pause to those of us who have fought up against depression throughout our lives.   My hope is this sad loss will open lines of conversation about this topic that many avoid or feel unsure of how to discuss. To anyone in the midst of the struggle, you are not alone and you are loved.
RIP Robin Williams.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 223 (954)

Spent the majority of the day getting projects ready, done by my students, for the State Fair and bringing them to complete the registration process: 66 total projects registered.  The total process to do all this took from start to finish well over 10 hours. Fingers crossed we get a bunch of ribbon again this year. I don't know who gets more excited the students or me.

Day 222 (953)

Peace and fabulousness.

Day 221 (952)

Having to keep it simple today. I have to get the State Fair student entries prepped and have the skyline music festival tonight. I can't wait!

Day 220 (951)

All good things must come to an end. Another beautiful sunrise. I definitely need to spend more time here throughout the year. Even though it's hard to leave reality must be. Attempting not to go online, etc... as much since I've gotten home. Trying to bring that peace into my home.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 219 (950)

Today was wonderful! I woke up at 5 a.m. and got to see the sunrise over a lake. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Also got to see a lot of wildlife like trumpeter swans, a deer in her two dawns, chipmunks, a skunk, excetera. Lots of time to think, read, meditate and pray without the distractions of the world. It's amazing how much time is in the day when one doesn't have the distractions of radio, internet, TV, excetera.  Priceless!
  Peace and fabulousness.

Day 218 (949)

Did do this project earlier in the day but forgot to post it. I had the opportunity to go to a silent retreat place. No phones, no electricity, no internet, just nature in a small cabin. It was quite an adjustment not having my phone and internet nearby, nor having a TV or radio to turn on. Just the sounds of nature... it was awesome. Peace and fabulousness.

Day 216 (947)

Nice visit today with a friend... Always feel deeply sad when someone has a rough patch and I don't know how to help.  Makes me grateful for the blessings in my life and yet undeserving. 
So many more bees, birds and butterflies in the gardens this year along with more blooms.  I plant what I do for them.
Peace and fabulousness.
