Many celebrate each Saturday or Sunday with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build and the rest of the wonderful community that celebrates together.
|Always celebrating sunsets!|
A busy week all the way through Saturday. I am grateful for my friends and family. My writing group has connected again, and it was a delightful evening Tuesday. Although some were missing and will join in later, those there responded to each other's ideas and left inspired to keep going! I am doing PiBoIdMo and am filled up with ideas, so it was especially nice to share some and get feedback for them.
I started having Imogene for a special time on Wednesday. She is such a book lover already, and I am happy about that. We read and read, and ended at MacDonald's, her favorite place.
On Thursday, I observed two lessons given by the young teacher with whom I'm working. It was a joyful time to see how he's growing as a teacher.
Breakfast very early with two former colleagues started my Friday. Incredible pancakes and talk made a good start to the day, which ended with Ingrid and our special time together. It started snowing late and we had quite a slippery time on the way to her home! We sang holiday songs and made up some of our own to make the time go fast. I was glad to get back home, cozy and inside! Wintry weather has certainly arrived.
I wrote a poem for Poetry Friday that meant a lot to me considering the political fray happening this week in response to the refugees. I celebrate that people are speaking up against such exclusion.
Two friends and I met yesterday at a coffee shop to discuss our 're-reading' of The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. We talked on and on, then about other favorite books, noting each other's recommendations. It was great to connect this way.
And now it's Sunday, time to gather my lists for the week, anticipate Thanksgiving, our day to show gratitude for the lives we have. I hope each one of you enjoy the day, and have a good, good week with your family and friends. For the first time I'll be on the 'other' side of Grand-People's Day at my school, visiting Ingrid as her "Grand-Person" instead of welcoming others as a teacher. Change is good!
