Day 119 (1580)

After a morning  of teaching? I had the opportunity to see another art teacher in action.   I'm changing directions next year at school and she was in the first year of implementing it. So inspired and feel more confident.   Also really grateful for my awesome students.

Day 113 (1574)

Still at a loss for words.  Almost didn't create a piece tonight, just blocked. Tired. Had the new Archbishop and Governor Dayton visit our school and my classroom today.  Students were awesome, but I'd expect nothing less.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 110 (1571)

Happy Tuesday! Wow was it a long day! I think the testing is getting to some of our students. After hours of sitting quietly testing they just needed to chat and chat they did! I came home and did nothing but listen to silence. LOL. Today's piece is inspired by a conversation with some kindergarteners as I sat at their table. We were talking about bumblebees and the one little girl kept saying how she loved the furry ones. I agreed of course. And even the little boy in the conversation said he agreed even though one had crawled up his nose and stung him. He still loves the furry ones too. After saying she loved the furry ones a third time,  I looked at her and said they're kind of like flying bears. She broke out into a larger grin and said yes that's it! Too fun. Peace and fabulousness.

Day 109 (1570)

Keeping it short. After a night of obnoxiously stupid dreams, got up early enough to go to the gym, reset the alarm, but wole up early enough anyway to go to the gym, kind of day.  Throw in some aggressive gardening. I'm pooped.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 108 (1569)

It was actually a peaceful late afternoon today, which was nice after yesterday and finishing some gardening, reading and laundry. Warm weather plus peacefulness equals a nice Sunday evening. Peace and fabulousness.

Day 107 (1568)

Really pushed myself physically today at the gym and in the gardens. I'm determined to lose these nine pounds before summer officially begins. I have these three beautiful trees by my garage, but they root themselves under the sidewalk and into another garden space. So I spent an hour or two rooting out the shoots hopefully I got them all. Thoughts and prayers going out to the 10 year old who  lost a leg today on the train tracks. Hate hearing news like this and left wondering if they are one of my students. Peace and Fabulousness

Day 106 (1567)

Happy Friday! Hyper classes most likely due to testing all week and thus gorgeous  weather.  Made art club optional today because of that.  Was surprised that one person showed up.  I think she just needed  some quiet creative time.
Today's piece was due to how much yesterday's 1st grade class liked my bear in spring fashions from a couple days ago.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 115

What a Thursday should be Friday kind of day.  Found this awesome apple, but I'm not if I bought it.
Hug the one you're with.

Day 105 (1566)

Great day with the students and coffee!!
Came home to find the condemned house next door's back gate was on the ground.  The gates on that property are a way for us to see if anybody has been snooping around it. If the gates are open you knew somebody had been there. At first I thought someone had pulled this one off but later realized it was just the wind and the rotting wood that was holding it up had finally given away. I find things like that a bit unsettling and realized how I'm not aware of how much living where I am wears on me. 
Also got the 2nd round of numbers (higher than the last one) for having what the insurance won't cover on all that hail damage from a year ago 50th of May.  Kind of  disheartening.  Along with the increased # of shootings this week, street fights, UGH! (Thus today's creature.)
BUT(!) I reminded myself I have a home, live in a piece of this area that has been pretty good by comparison and much, much more to be grateful for.  So thank you God and you all.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 104 (1565)

After a whirlwind day of busyness and student energy, I'm wiped.
Kind of stuck in a good way with this current color/paper mode.  I call it the creature spring collection.   I hope you are enjoying it. 😯☺😆
Peace And fabulousness.

Day 103 (1564)

Holy Tuesday Batman! What a crazy busy day. I had four little 2nd graders save up and earn a free choice art time with me this morning. They just went to town sponge painting. They remembered what it was like in kindergarden and wanted to do it again. One decided he wanted to collage which I never would have guessed him selecting. But he really enjoyed it. The sweetest thing was they all were creating things for their moms. Ahhhhh. Got to love little kids.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 102 (1563)

MONDAY! What a Monday. It was one of those oh yeah here's something else for you to do kind of days. Like a giant to-do list is hanging over my head with someone frantically adding more to it. At least the students had fun.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 98 (1559)

Thursday!! Funny story! Yesterday one of my 4th graders kept piking up one of the kindergarteners while waiting for their parents to pick them up. So I told the kindergarten I was going to duct tape him to the wall in the lower section. I told the 4th grader that he would be duct-taped at least two stories higher. Lot of laughing going on from all of us. So today the fourth grade had art. When he walked by my desk I pulled out a roll of duct tape and I unrolled a strip of it. He let out a loud squeal. It was so funny. Peace and fabulousness.

Day 97 (1558)

Crazy day of meetings, meetings and more meetings. Then came home to have an estimate  done on a project I think needs to be done on the house.  At least the weekend is near and there will be time to sleep.

Day 96 (1557)

Oh my! It was a Tuesday. I think the students realize that they were back. Yesterday they were still half asleep. Although I have to admit I was pretty sleepy today myself. I woke up well in advance of my alarm. I didn't  want to chance falling back into a deep sleep so close to the alarm time, so got up and hit gym early. Yay... lol.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 93 ( 1554)

After one of those (less frequent) Ambien nights, little groggy today. How ironic.
Tonight I saw all these different aspects of the evening not seeming to work out. It was then in one moment, when God placed an opportunity to be a gift to someone, that all the pieces assembled and made sense. Grateful.
Peace and fabulousness.

Day 92 (1553)

Crazy Friday that I thought was Saturday. Made it through my workout before loud man revved up.
Angry man across the street was revved up, but the police and a tow truck took care of that. 
Continued to clean out the basement, realizing I haven't had a social event at my house in a while, because I found a container of out dated beer! Which is odd because my basement pretty sparse. 
Peace and fabulousness.
