My favorite is #382.
It’s the Little Things #367
Enjoying lunch out with my honey at a restaurant open on New Year’s Day.
Due to alarm malfunctions at school, I changed my plans and stayed home today which turned out to be a good thing because A got sick and vomited all over. Messes cleaned up, getting a little food in her. Hopefully she will be better tomorrow.
Eating lunch with all my students on the first day back to school after the break.
One student had a pass to “eat with the teacher”. He asked if he could use it and I reluctantly said yes. (Honestly, I wanted time to myself to get back into the swing of things, but I thought 2 students – alright.) Then a girl asked if she could use her coupon to eat with me. Before you know it 5 students turned in their coupons to eat with me, and of course the coupon included 5 friends. As we started back to the room, there were 2 students left in the cafeteria. I looked at the rest of the class, looked at the students…they hollered from the hallway, “Come on Howie and Sally. We are ALL going to eat lunch with Mrs. Walt today!” And we did.
P.S. Their names are not really Howie and Sally. Those are the names we use in my classroom instead of real names when we need to talk about classroom issues.
Wishing you a Wonderful Wednesday!
My husband: who will eat any leftovers – glad we had them tonight so we could get out the door for church.
The moment you realize your computer mouse has not been taken over by aliens, but rather it is rotated 180 degrees and what should be right is left, what should be down is up. Easy Fix. I got this one.
The teacher across the hall sharing Root Beer floats with my students because they had extra ingredients. Thank you T; the kids loved them.
A wonderful impromptu visit from D and KM.
Rearranging the living room again so the focus is the exercise equipment, not comfy cushy chairs that call my name.
An early dinner in our favorite quaint spot.
When what you cooked doesn’t look real pretty, but it smells and tastes delicious!
Kids so excited about school they begged to come Monday on their day off.
As we were leaving the restaurant, a couple approached us and said, “This place is so busy. We prayed for a seat to open, and you guys got up and cleaned off your table You are an answer to prayer. Thank you!”
The peaceful colors of a winter sunset, especially after a tremendously busy day.
The person who senses that you are feeling overwhelmed and he/she does or says something to make you smile.
Today is Parent-Teacher Conference day which means I got to enjoy driving to work with the sun already up; beautiful rays streaming down through the clouds. I almost stopped to take a picture of the weathered barn nestled in the woods with just a dusting of snow on its roof.
As the students were discussing what they were bringing me for Valentine’s Day, one student loudly proclaims, “I am bringing you a carrot!”
(#383 and #384) Our Valentine’s Day “Date” is set: taking Abbie to the vet after school today, for an abscessed tooth. I literally pray she does not bite the vet.
On a positive note:
It’s the Little Things #383
Our dog sitter works for our vet. We texted her a picture of Abbie’s tooth last night, and she let us know what appointments were available for this evening.
It’s the Little Things #384
A vet that works evening hours.
Students taking the time to check and bring in valentine treats without red dye for the one child who is allergic.
Opening up Facebook this morning and seeing the sweet faces of friends and their families in photographs. I love watching how your families are growing up, and as grandchildren come along, are getting larger. Keep posting the joy!
Looking over the calendar for the next 5 months and seeing it dotted with activities and appointments you are passionate about.
A refreshing glass of cold water after a long hike on our favorite wooded trail.
A co-worker defending or standing up for you.
Exercising even when your knees don’t feel like it.
Crispy turkey bacon!
At recess, the moment something cold and wet hits your ear, and you are overjoyed it is a raindrop instead of bird poop.
An unexpected apology
When a project turns out exactly like you pictured it in your mind.
Discovering Booker T and the MG’s. If you have a chance today, listen to “My Sweet Potato”.
Waking up to the symphony of rain drops playing their song, announcing that spring is not far behind.
My husband calling me on his way to work to tell me a little thing to post for today.
Until Next Time
