I lit a candle for you, blog friends. Here it is day eight of the heart month and it is whizzing by! I have a big event at school on Friday evening and I've had to allow all the "to dos" to occupy a good amount of space in my brain lately. Plus, we've had the heart birthdays to enjoy! Lunch with my girls was fun! We wish sweet April could have joined us (Atticus is keeping her quite busy and AWAKE!)
I must get out and about for some heart viewing in big stores and small!
I haven't even taken the time to brew tea in my polka dot Christmas teapot!
However, I would like to brew a pot of tea for Peter Rabbit AND my friend Kim in California. She is one the kindest women ever and she sent me this LOVELY BP Journal. It makes me so happy. Don't you LOVE the way rabbits look? They have those strong hind legs and tend to stiffen up when you hold them (unlike rag doll cats!) but they look so beautiful! What a GREAT animal!
Thank you, good Kim! Thank you for blessing little old me!
Here is my friend Sherrie. She is an answer to prayer. She is new at my school, just this year. I prayed for a kindred spirit and He delivered. We do a little book club for kids after school on Mondays, we Zumba together, we share ideas and plan together. It's bliss! Isn't she pretty? Sorry about my cluttered classroom. I must tidy up.
More random stuff here. I am taking a lot of photos for the "big event" and I am not sure why I opened the staff refrigerator at school and shot this picture, but frozen ice pops DO symbolize HOPE for warmer weather, don't they? I am SO thankful for my down jacket this winter.
Here's one of my better bird drawings. Also, a canoe painting. I used to draw canoes quite often. I guess I long for the water. Well, the snow is dwindling away and I'm glad Bill will enjoy some New Zealand, Australian, and Singapore weather after all that shoveling he had to do! Whew!
It's library day again, so my students and I will sit in the company of books today and that is a good, good, good thing.
Thank you for popping by to say hello. I hope you are very well and I hope you have a day full of light and joy!
I'm so thankful for friends!
Oh! My friend Elaine gave me a friend book a few decades ago. I'll share a few quotes (kids say the cutest things!)
"A friend leaves an apple on a low branch for someone shorter than himself." ~ Caren
"A friend doesn't care if you haven't taken a bath in two weeks or ever." ~ Ricky
"Personally, I think a friend would trade papers with you when he has a 100 and you have a 0."
"A friend is someone you like and care for as yourself." ~ Walter
