A Tiny Slice--Happens Every Day But One

SOLC # 15 

Day Fifteen of the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Challenge. I'm also blogging with students at Linda & Jonathan's Class Blog      Tweet at #SOL15
        Thanks to Tara, Dana, Anna, Betsy, Beth and Stacey for all you're doing!

           I think this might be my shortest slice. I've been writing evaluations all day, conferences are Thursday and Friday. I am tired!

          One tiny slice of my life that happens now in my new home is going to get the mail. Getting the mail is always fun. No matter the junk mail, there might be something else exciting, too. My mail is no longer outside my house, but "around" the block in a bank of boxes. I've never done this before, always had my mail right outside my house, but even in the cold, in the evening, sometimes in the dark, I walk to get the mail. In the winter it's rather fun to go out just for a little while, even with snow swirling. In recent evenings, it's still twilight time, birds are murmuring their goodnights, and this is what I see sometimes, a beauty of a sunset. 

       Wishing everyone a wonderful week of beauty, in your lives and in your writing!

  2. Nice slice! It brought me back to the two places where I walked to the central mail box as well. Nice view!

  4. I'm glad not to have this in the winter, but in the summer I wouldn't mine the little walk. That is a beautiful picture!

  7. The sky is striking! A walk, even the same one every day, is never the same two days in a row. So many things change and happen in the course of 24 hours. Enjoy your daily show.

  12. Linda, this is a beautiful ending to my day of gathering offerings for the Gallery of Winter Whisperings. I still did not complete my post for today. Off to do that now.

  14. Because of your giving spirit, Linda, I wanted to share this with you.

    ON “NEW SLICER CHALLENGE” (Because I am a new slicer in the March Story Challenge, I wanted to honor you.)

    When I reflect on which blogger has been an inspiration to me, I look no further than Linda Baie at http://www.teacherdance.org/. She is supportive, creative, and an advocate for learners. Linda has been a faithful follower and supporter of my work since I started blogging. As one of the SOL mentors, she has provided me with information from the onset of this challenge and has responded to any question I might have. Beyond blogging, she has connected with me this weekend when I was faced with a difficult medical situation with my young adult son. Linda listened and corresponded inquiring on the outcome of testing. It would be a pleasure if Linda was recognized for her spirit of collaboration and support.

  16. I finally am finished with the evaluations, and then checked here and found all these wonderful comments. Carol, I am honored. Most of the time I just wish I had more time to read and comment to many more. Hope everyone has a terrific week ahead.

  17. Our mailbox is across the street from our driveway, so it's not too far away, but I agree with you. It's lovely to stroll out there to see what might be waiting there. And I agree with Carol. You are an inspiration!
