Outside my window... a pair of bluebirds at the feeder.
I am thinking... about what to do this week in art classes. I have to come up with something the kids can take home for Mother's Day. Aaarrgh! Craft stress!
I am thankful... for Pinterest. What did teachers do before Pinterest? We must have been terribly dull!
In the kitchen... Pappardelle di San Giuseppe. I missed celebrating St. Joseph's feast day in March because we were in Orlando on Spring Break. I'm planning on doing a traditional breadcrumb based recipe for Wednesday like you can find here at Catholic Cuisine or here at The Food Network .
I am wearing... a red peasant top and army green shorts. We have Arkansas Instant Summer today.
I am creating... sacrifice beads with the 3rd and 4th graders.
I am going... to see Rock of Ages in Fort Smith tomorrow night with my friends Kimberlee and Kerri! Woo hoo!
I am looking forward to... Adoration this week. I really, really am.
I am learning... to pray for my enemies. I am a reluctant student.
Around the house... kind of a mess, actually.
A favorite quote for today... The Irish do not want anyone to wish them well; they want everyone to wish their enemies ill. --Harold Nicolson
One of my favorite things... this pencil sharpener:
This has become St. Joseph School favorite pencil sharpener. If you are a teacher, artist, homeschool mom or mother of a number of pencil-using kids, put your noisy, electric monstrosity in the trash and get yourself one of these beauties: silent, sharp, portable, fast, durable. I'm really not shilling for Carl Office Products , but if they want to lay some swag on me for the free advertising, that would be just fine!
A few plans for the rest of the week: softball scrimmage, first baseball games of the season, Arkansas Naturals game on Sunday. Sounds like spring!
A peek into my day... probably won't get much of this back in New Jersey!
Thanks, as always to The Simple Woman's Daybook. I am happy to be back!
