Well, it's not quite morning anymore, but it feels good to say it anyway!
I've been slack with this lately--however. I have a reason to post today.
On Tuesday I got a package in the mail. A REAL, beautifully LONG, BONA-FIDE handwritten LETTER.
With the kind of Christmas card I've been looking for to give myself--but haven't been able to find. And a precious bookmark.
I'm not quite in clover yet... lol... I still have grades to do, and post, and all of that. But at least I now have time to do it.
I need to finish making pillows and bedroom slippers for Christmas... lol!!! just saying that makes me laugh, though I love doing it.
Good Grief. It's been forever since I posted, therefore I have stories to tell!
Story No. 1: My niece Renee, not quite one, took her first steps! How sweet is that?!
Story No 2: I had no school last Thursday and Friday. Guess Why?!?!
Not because of snow.
Not because of ice. We had a little, but only enough for a 2-hour delay on Thursday.
Because the power was out in the town where I teach.
It totally messed up my teaching schedule. When the students come back, I'll be finishing up projects from Literature Circles--that should have been finished before Christmas. But oh well--not everything works the way you try to plan.
Actually, I've learned so far--very little does according to your plan. But just so it's God's plans in action, then everything will be just fine.
For instance: because I was off, Momma and I were able to go ahead and do Cookies for Christmas. Not something I thought I was going to be able to help with this year. I'm glad I could!
I also was able to go ahead and sew up one of the skirts I'd planned to make over the holidays. And now I have another jean skirt. Yay!!
--I'd better go get stuff done. I can't believe Christmas is so soon.
God Bless, everyone!
