We’ve got an extra day at home this week thanks to the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Just another perk of being a teacher.
We don’t have big plans for the day, we are still in pjs while some laundry is going & the kids are gobbling down bacon & strawberries for breakfast. My coffee cup is getting low & another k-cup will fill it soon. My dad’s birthday is tomorrow, so a trip to the store to pick out his present is in the plans for this afternoon. There was something I was going to get him for Christmas & then didn’t because we got my parents something else. Now I can’t remember for the life of me what it was, so wandering the aisles of Target later will hopefully help.
The weather here in Florida has been just gorgeous for at least a week now and it looks like the week ahead will be the same. We’ve actually been able to wear jeans & sweaters & boots & scarves. My parents have had a fire in their fireplace (man, I love my faux fireplace but sometimes I wish it were the real deal) and we’ve been eating soups & chowders to stay warm & cozy.
It’s been a nice change.
I’m looking forward to the week ahead (mostly because a four day week always flies by) because of some new changes coming in my classroom. For those teachers out there reading, I’m going to start “flipping” my math lessons. Google it. You’ll be amazed.
& to wrap up this randomness, I leave you with this. So true…
